Thanks be to God for leading me to Christian Science. I did not hear of this religion until I got a job at a place where the manager was a Christian Scientist. This man's Christian living, and his talks to me about the truth which Science teaches, broke my materialistic outlook on life in the two and a half years that I worked for him. I was enabled to see, though dimly, the spiritual nature of life. During the more than twenty years since then Science has been my trustworthy guide and Comforter.

The greatest joy I am experiencing through my understanding of Christian Science is in my spiritual progress. But I have been much benefited physically, too. Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health (p. 463), "A spiritual idea has not a single element of error, and this truth removes properly whatever is offensive." Not long ago, through the understanding that there is no sensation in mater, I was healed of what I believe was athlete's foot. Two summers ago my right arm was sore for several weeks. This soreness, which I thought might have been caused by overwork, was, however, healed while I was working still harder, when I realized that matter cannot experience fatigue. Our Leader writes (ibid., p. 217), "The scientific and permanent remedy for fatigue is to learn the power of Mind over the body or any illusion of physical weariness, and so destroy this illusion, for matter cannot be weary and heavy-laden."
