I first became acquainted with...

I first became acquainted with Christian Science when I married. My wife had been reared in the teachings of this religion ever since her mother had been healed of a serious stomach ailment through Christian Science treatment. During the first nine years of our marriage I did not give Science very much thought or consideration, even though I had seen some wonderful healings of our children, whom my wife was bringing up in Christian Science. In fact, I was even a little antagonistic toward this religion in which my wife was so engrossed.

I had a growth on one eye caused by an old injury I had received while playing football. This became so bad that it began to obstruct my vision. I told my wife that I was going to have an operation to have this growth removed. She recommended that I try Christian Science. I gave my consent and requested treatment. Three days later, while I was shaving, I noticed there was no longer even a sign of this growth.

This healing, which has been permanent, made a lasting impression on me. In a short time I began to study and apply the teachings of Mary Baker Eddy. As a result I was healed of heart trouble, a serious ailment of the stomach, and an extreme nervous condition. These healings did not come quickly, but as my understanding and demonstration of Christian Science increased, my physical problems decreased until I was completely free of them. During this period of spiritual progress my business grew tremendously. Without the truth I now have, it would be impossible to operate this business.
