I was a teenager when Christian Science entered my life, a woman handed me her unwanted periodicals. I read them and was intrigued by the way God was defined as impartial, all-inclusive Love. I felt that God was leading my life in a new direction. After an early marriage, I got them from an in-law’s living room table and a laundromat.

After college, a student of Christian Science at the office introduced me to church services and my daughter to Sunday School. We loved it immediately.  A year later I became a member of that branch and The Mother Church. My desire to understand Christian Science and God led me to read the textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, again and again. I took Primary class instruction the following year and was elected Second Reader. I continued serving as Sunday School Superintendent and teacher mornings before the church service. Some of my early healings were an addiction to cigarettes, hemorrhaging, and nightmares. My employment became progressive. Soon I began receiving requests for help and later became journal listed. I took Normal Class in 2012.

I served The Mother Church in Boston as a Human Resources Generalist and television host for over twenty years, and lectured across the United States and Canada for ten years. I hold a Master of Education degree from Cambridge College, Cambridge, Massachusetts. I regularly contribute to the periodicals and Daily Lifts.
