After three surgical operations and steady reliance on material...

After three surgical operations and steady reliance on material methods in solving problems, I found myself married to a new and devout student of Christian Science. My wife was being healed of curvature of the spine and other long-standing ailments through the diligent study of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.

This was to me indeed a new approach to meeting the affairs of life. She was faithfully and successfully following the rule, "Only through radical reliance on Truth can scientific healing power be realized" (Science and Health, p. 167).

As I observed her physical healings and her advancement in the study and practical application of Christian Science in our family affairs, I became interested. It was about ten years, however, before I felt I could honestly apply for church membership with confidence that I could depend fully on Christian Science. During that time I had been healed of smoking. Along with the benefits and sustaining influence of church membership, I have also had primary class instruction.
