This written expression of gratitude for the teachings of Christian Science...

This written expression of gratitude for the teachings of Christian Science is long overdue. During my young adult years, I searched down various material paths to find peace and happiness and some reason for living. Eventually, through the earnest desire for something better, I found Christian Science. When I did, I read the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy, from beginning to end. Immediately my life, my thinking, began to change. Wonderful improvements occurred. Friends even made comments as to my change in behavior and appearance. For months I was literally living "in the clouds"; I felt so strongly God's love everywhere. I really began to live. This all occurred more than thirty-five years ago.

We have raised a wonderful son and daughter in Christian Science. Although my husband is not a Christian Scientist, he completely supported my bringing up the children with this teaching. Neither child ever had medicine of any kind, and each year they proudly brought home their certificates of perfect attendance at school. So-called childhood diseases, if they came up, were very quickly healed.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
