Christian Science has shown me how to turn to God in prayer from earliest childhood to my current "post-retirement" career.

For a number of years in the latter stages of my teaching career, I periodically experienced palpitations in my chest that immobilized me for periods of a few minutes up to a number of hours. One evening, while I was serving as presiding officer at a service club meeting, I felt obliged to remain for a program I would have normally not attended. The program included a film that graphically detailed the symptoms and methods of treating heart attacks. I recognized that many of the symptoms described were similar to those that I had been experiencing.

One night a particularly aggressive attack completely immobilized me. I managed to waken my wife, who called the Christian Science practitioner who had been helping me. Prayerful work was taken up immediately, and presently I regained use of my limbs and could again speak. I asked for, and was granted, a leave of absence from my job to work out the problem.
