Estrella de Romero CSB

I am from Veracruz, Mexico. From girlhood, I wanted to know more about God and who I was--it was really a search for spirituality.  I wished I had been born in Jesus’ time so I could experience primitive Christianity and its healing power for my family and myself.

Since childhood, I felt on a quest for understanding truth. I spent summers voraciously reading book after book to solve the mystery of the meaning of my life and the world.

Watch The Book of Job: Part 2—Structure The Book of Job opens and closes in pretty accessible language with more complicated prose in the middle.

Judith Hardy Olson CSB

Attending Christian Science Sunday School as a child, I loved what I learned there of God—He’s everywhere, always Love, and All. But going out into the “cold, cruel world,” I couldn’t reconcile what I was seeing with a God who is Love. Putting my Bible and Science and Health on the shelf, I forged ahead, just trying to live a moral, meaningful life. I married, had children, was happy, but missing was a depth to life.  Science and Health beckoned to me. Opening it, I saw my grandmother’s note inside: “Judith Ann—Read this.  You owe it to yourself.” I did, for the first time. When I came to “The calm, strong currents of true spirituality.

Ruth Geyer CSB

I came into Christian Science as an adult and found it to be just what I’d been searching for -- Mrs. Eddy’s writings described so perfectly something I’d always known deep inside.

Beverly Goldsmith CSB

My love for Christian Science healing began as a young teenager. My mother and grandmother were healed of chronic ailments, and I was permanently healed of migraine headaches by reading Mary Baker Eddy’s textbook Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.

Jill Gooding CSB

Christian Science has been central to my life for as long as I can remember. As a result of reading the Christian Science textbook, my mother was healed of a life-long, incurable skin disease. Before my birth, my parents were told they could not have children, but through dedicated prayer my mother found she was expecting a child and I appeared on the scene. Two years later my brother joined the family also! As a child, love for God and healing were never far from my thought and during college the practicing of Christian Science became a natural part of my life. I married my wonderful husband, and in 1977, as a young mother with two small children, I went into the public practice of Christian Science. Years of happy family life followed, interwoven with an active public healing practice. In 1985 I became a Christian Science teacher--inspiring work which I have done for the last 25 years.

John Donald Minard CSB

As have many families, ours came to Christian Science through the experience of Christ’s healing power. A co-worker suggested my grandfather try Christian Science, and it restored his failing eyesight. Growing up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, I attended an active Sunday School. One summer, in Junior High, while reading through Science and Health, I gained a deepening sense of God’s gentle presence, love and care of each of us as His precious children. This was a turning point. My grades, friendships, and joy of life really blossomed, as did my love of Christian Science. Many wonderful healings followed: asthma, allergies, back problems, foot sores, digestive trouble, and protective guidance throughout those teenage years.  Not long after college, Sunday School pupils and friends began asking me for prayerful help. I discovered the great joy of helping others find healing through the practice of Christian Science.
