I wish to express my appreciation for the great good that Christian Science has brought to my family. Although I was raised in a Christian Science Sunday School, I was very lax in my approach to church during my late teens and early twenties. I attended church because I loved the services, but that was the extent of my involvement. On occasion I found myself indulging in materialistic pleasures that were not in harmony with Christian Science. Yet the words of Jesus (Matt. 6:24) "Ye cannot serve God and mammon" stayed with me. Gradually I began to resume study of the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly and to rely on Science for healing.

One evening I was confronted with a severe headache. I worked vehemently to know the truth of myself as a reflection, or spiritual idea, of God, and the headache disappeared. I remember the delight of my freedom. Since that time a pattern of periodic, severe headaches has vanished from my life.
