I have always been a fairly happy person. From the time I was a boy I knew the difference between right and wrong. What I didn't understand was why others did not. I've seen so many people, some very close to me, do things so obviously contrary to life and happiness. When I began to study Scientology, these "unknowable" things suddenly became very simple to understand.
I now have a very broad understanding of people and of life. With that, I help people every day, help them answer questions for themselves.
People see that things are going well for me and usually want to know why I don't have the same problems others do. My answer is always the same, "Scientology."

What happens when a Hollywood star spouts off about religion?
...Perhaps more so than other religions, Scientology draws particular scrutiny. It has been investigated as a sect in Germany and even discounted as a religion. Yet Scientology, founded by science-fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, boasts 8 million disciples, including celebs John Travolta, Lisa Marie Presley and Kirstie Alley. Most are effusive in their praise.
...Former Dharma & Greg star Jenna Elfman credits it for helping sustain her 10-year marriage to actor Bodhi Elfman.
"Scientology gives us tools of communication and understanding and humanity so we can live more peacefully and happily with each other," she says.
