My grandmother's encouragement prompted me to learn more of Christian Science. I gained a new outlook on life as I studied the Bible and Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, and very soon I was freed from the use of tobacco, alcohol, and other more harmful drugs.

Further study resulted in an increased understanding of God and the successful application of this Science in healing sensual indulgence, which had caused a great deal of sorrow to me and to my family. An unhappy estrangement from my family was beautifully corrected; we were reunited.

My mental ability has been strengthened through Science—I have learned that sound intelligence is an aspect of man's true spiritual selfhood and heritage, and that I am secure in my enduring relationship to Spirit as its reflection. I was able to reenter university and finish my degree in music. And I enjoyed participating as an active member of the Christian Science college organization while attending school. Branch church membership was a natural step, and soon after I also joined The Mother Church.
