In 1965, at age 13, the author discovered a Christian Science Reading Room in Pawtucket, R.I. He knew what the word “science” meant but had no idea what Christian Science was. He went in and began his journey into the spiritual life.
He went on to Religious Science taught by Ernest Holmes, and in 1972 received a certificate from the Institute of Religious Science in Los Angeles for his completion of the basic course in Science of Mind philosophy/spirituality. In the same year, he was guided to the writings of Joel S. Goldsmith and later took classes with Lorraine Sinkler, Walter Starcke, and Lorene McClintock. In 1975 his first writing, Forgiveness, the Higher Law of Being was produced and published.
