Each step that has led me to a deeper understanding of Christian Science has also been followed by more joy and freedom in my life. Raised by my father in another faith, I learned about Christian Science from my mother. After visiting a local Christian Science Sunday School only a few times, I immediately felt something more – I perceived that God is always present and always available.

Discovering how real and constantly present God's love is to care for, protect and support us freed me from the grief and sense of abandonment I felt after a divorce. God—divine Love—was “an ever-present help” in work and in family life with my three children, guiding and protecting us, and even providing great times traveling, skiing, hiking, sailing and playing tennis.

As a long-life teacher, first in Primary School, then as a trainer for teachers of bilingual courses, I have always loved to help others improve their skills and talents, to move past limitations and fears. This goes on in my work as a Christian Science practitioner, where, seeing beyond the problems, I am happy to help improve the lives of people who call me, whether this be overcoming a physical challenge or resolving other problems.

As I went through a difficult time in my life, gradually feeling freed from injustice, fear and oppression, I made a promise to serve God with all my heart. And that's what I try to do in giving lectures, sharing the great message of Christian Science that brings blessings to all of us.
