Many years ago I asked my mother if I might read from her copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy because I had seen the wonderful effects a study of the book had produced upon her life. Since that momentous event. Christian Science has become the Comforter guiding me "into all truth" (John 16: 13).

As I continued to study and grasp this Science, much good and joy came into my life. One of the first healings I recall was that of a back injury which happened during a basketball game in school. I remember struggling to bed in much agony and pain and then awakening the next morning without any traces of injury or any aftereffects. My mother and a practitioner whom she had called were supporting me with Christianly scientific prayer throughout the night.

Several months later I entered a university where a compulsory medical examination was a part of the entrance requirements. The physician asked me if I had ever had any injuries. When I answered that I had not, he remarked that I must have injured my back, because he could see where a bone had been set. Then I recalled the basketball experience, and I was convinced by this proof that I had found a religion that heals.
