Giulia A Nesi CSB

I always knew my career path was going to involve being of service to others, but had no idea it would be as a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science! My work in rural Appalachia during high school touched me so deeply I went on to get both an undergraduate and graduate degree in social work. I then worked for over 10 years as a psychotherapist in a variety of mental health settings.

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.

Lyn Smith CSB

I have lived most of my life in and around Fremantle, Australia.  I trained as a hairdresser and operated a hairdressing business. Christian Science came into my life shortly after a personal challenge.  A dear friend passed on at a relatively young age.  Shortly after, I bought a second-hand copy of Science and Health - the word “Health” caught my attention.

The Book of Job

The Book of Job: Part 1— Overview Job is often known for his tremendous suffering—and he suffered a lot! But the book of Job is about more than one guy's suffering. It's a book that tries to understand the basic question "Why do bad things happen to good people?" 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.

John Quincy Adams III, CSB

My great joy is healing. Nothing compares to the moment of healing, of realizing God’s actuality, and one’s innocence as His child. Healing directly impacts families, friends, neighbors, and communities.
