My grandmother's healing of leukaemia in the early 1900's brought Christian Science to our family. Since then, it has been the way of life for a number of family members. When I was nine, its healing power saved my life.
Attending the Christian Science Sunday School from the age of two was a wonderful blessing, as it instilled in me a great love for the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, but most of all the desire to be able to heal like Christ Jesus.
After leaving school, my training as a lawyer was also a great blessing. Towards the end of this training, requests for Christian Science treatment started coming and Primary class instruction became the logical next step. Shortly thereafter I became listed in the Journal as a public practitioner of Christian Science. In the years since, I have been privileged to witness healings relating to every area of human experience, including so-called incurable diseases.
Membership of The Mother Church and several branch churches has been a deeply fulfilling experience, with opportunities to serve in many capacities, including as a Christian Science Lecturer, County Committee on Publication, and working for a number of years for The Writings of Mary Baker Eddy, a department of The Mother Church, to promote the distribution and sale of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures in the UK.
The year 1985 saw acceptance to the Normal class and authorisation by The Christian Science Board of Directors to teach Christian Science.
