Although I have known no religion other than Christian Science...

Although I have known no religion other than Christian Science since the age of five, I certainly have had to make it my own through demonstration and right reasoning. I have found that the understanding and application of Christian Science cannot be handed down from parents to children like some inherited object but that each one must glimpse the truth for himself through an earnest, sincere study of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy.

Numerous so-called childhood diseases were healed quickly and effectively for me in Christian Science through my mother's prayers or those of dedicated practitioners, but the healing for which I am particularly grateful is the first one which came through my own communing with our divine Father-Mother God and which convinced me that I would never rely on any other means for healing.
