For a number of years Christian Science was presented to me, and I was opposed to it and very strong in my opposition. Then came the time when I was left with three small children. I felt very much alone and lost. I turned to a friend who asked me if I would talk to a Christian Science practitioner. I said Yes, and this was the turning point in my life. I do not remember much of the conversation but I do remember that I was loaned a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. I was given citations to study that gave me a new awareness of God's government in my life.

The need at the moment was for someone to take care of the children. Soon I met a young woman who was a student of Christian Science. She and her mother were willing to take the children. This was the beginning. The young woman later became my wife.

Through the years there have been many other evidences of God's care. I was healed of smoking through the desire for church membership. I have been healed of burns on my hands and the effects of having the end of my finger caught in a grinding wheel. In the latter instance, through treatment by a practitioner and my own prayerful efforts, there never was any pain, and there is no evidence of an injury to my hand.
