Christian Science has proven to be the only way of life for me

Christian Science has proven to be the only way of life for me. Through its power I have been healed and blessed.

As a child I belonged to the Protestant church of my father, yet I longed for a clearer interpretation of the Bible teachings. My mother encouraged me to investigate Christian Science. A loving aunt, who was a Christian Science practitioner, taught me the importance of the daily study of the Christian Science Quarterly Lesson-Sermon. I discerned that, as Mrs. Eddy says, "Prayer cannot change the Science of being, but it tends to bring us into harmony with it" (Science and Health, p. 2). This was proven clearly to me when I became a college freshman. The temptation to smoke and to join the mainstream of college life presented itself. However, shortly after attending a lecture on Christian Science I saw positively that smoking was not essential to belonging to any group. The desire to smoke left me, and has never returned.
