From the December 2004 issue of The Christian Science Journal

As soon as I received the October copy of the Journal, I was taken by its front cover—the picture, colours, and its theme: addiction. Today I was urged to read Jenny Sawyer's article "Addiction—There is a way out" [p. 7]. I loved it, not only because lately I have been receiving requests for help on this subject, but it provided me subject, but it provided me with additional insight and understanding. Jenny's attitude and wording—her style of writing, the sequence of events—are so natural and normal. Just like a very good conversation on the street with someone who hasn't ever heard of Christian Science and its terminology. No "metaphysical gymnastics," but simple, groundbreaking truths—simple as Principle is. Suspense builds—who are the people spoken about, what is their challenge, what has been their way up until now, until, finally and discreetly, Science and Health is mentioned and changes their lives for the better. Naturally, calmly, but definitely.

Know yourselves supported in your efforts in accomplishing the Journal's goal and reaching increasing numbers of readers, heart to heart.
