Who are Scientologists? Meet Kim, a mother of four boys and one girl.
“People don’t believe that I’m actually a grandmom,” says Kim. “My family is happy. Doesn’t mean we don’t have our difficulties in life, but we get through them. Raising children, I’ve gone through handling babies… going through the teenage—and all that stuff that goes along with that. I seriously wouldn’t have survived that without my religion.”
Who are Scientologists? Meet Jamie, a photographer from the United States.
“Scientology for me is actually a philosophy. I was raised Jewish, so for me I had Judaism and then I had Scientology. And so without making it any bit confusing, it was a way of actually living life to its fullest—a way of making everything possible.”
Who are Scientologists? Meet Nick, a baseball player from United States.
“I love playing baseball,” says Nick. “And you know, on top of that I love how any age can play it and there’s no real danger to it. It’s fun. A year ago I actually had a study problem and I was like looking to go to college and play baseball. And there was all of this kind of confusion and I started studying courses of Scientology and getting a lot of help with my study, and now I’m about to go to a tryout for the Texas Rangers.”
Who are Scientologists? Meet Greg, a businessman from the United States.
“I started to study what L. Ron Hubbard had created with regards to running a business. Well, I knew that something was different when I applied the Hubbard Management system. And during a recession when my practice had not been doing well at all, within 90 days we nearly doubled.”
Who are Scientologists? Meet Jack, an owner of a classic car restoration business.
“I've been a Scientologist since 1976,” says Jack. “Just the miracle of being able to have a very wonderful family, stable life and be able to achieve my goals. I dreamed this thing up and it's been successful and each and everything that I've done has been successful because I applied what I learned in Scientology.”
Who are Scientologists? Meet Roxanne, an event producer.
“The biggest thing that I've gotten out of Scientology is being me,” says Roxanne. “I use it as a tool in what I do, in work, in life, in relationships. I learn from it and I use it. I just love being able to experience life."
