Melanie Wahlberg, CS

Two influences on me that I’ll never forget were the Christian Science Sunday School and a mom who turned to prayer and encouraged me to do the same.  These influences showed me something of the reliability of God and spiritual inspiration, and trusting this helped me find my way growing up.  Significant healing experiences with relationship and food issues, and violence in the community, were also unforgettable.  From this, I got an idea of the many ways that Christian Science can transform lives.After finishing a doctorate in mathematics, I became a college professor and truly enjoyed teaching.  I found that teaching was less about telling students something than facilitating the students’ discoveries of new concepts.

In her capacity as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship, Beth has been invited to lecture around the world, talking with audiences in such diverse situations as the hallowed halls of London to the inmates in provincial prisons in Africa and Asia.  All receive the same message of divine love and healing.But it is through her practice of Christian Science healing that the words and ideas she shares in her talks are proven true.

Brian G. Pennix, CSB

I love all sorts of people, and for me a great joy is helping others appreciate their closeness with God and their right to health and peace as God’s innocent children.This appreciation started for me as a boy in Christian Science Sunday School. There was a teacher who, both by words and example, taught me to think more clearly about Christian healing.

Larissa Snorek-Yates, CS

It was the first time I felt so far outside of my comfort zone. I was in Paris and had just received news that the job and place to live that I thought I would have for the next few months had fallen through.
