The study of Christian Science...

The study of Christian Science and the application of it to daily living have completely reversed my outlook on life. Before beginning to study Science I had a very materialistic outlook and only that which was subject to the proof of the physical senses had any meaning or reality for me. When Science was first brought to my attention it was so foreign to my established beliefs that I dismissed it as utter nonsense.

However, at that time my wife was beginning an earnest study of it, and the religion kept knocking at the door of my consciousness. I would occasionally glance at the literature my wife was reading, but inevitably I came across some statement which was so contrary to my way of thinking that I would instinctively draw back from what I had read and turn away again.

Meanwhile, my wife kept up her study, and in not too long a time found relief from, and then a bit later had a complete healing of, a severe nasal disturbance that had troubled her since childhood. I remembered all the medical advice she had previously sought and the remedies she had been given for the condition, and her complete healing through the application of Christian Science was such a positive fact to my physical senses that I was forced to recognize that prayer had healed her.
