I live in the country in Salem, Oregon, where I teach my classes in a tree house environment.I think of my students as an extension of our large diverse family.The healing warmth and closeness that families can freely share with each other is a goal realized in many of the relationships in our Association family.I see teaching as an opportunity to share in the natural unfolding of our oneness with divine Love.I discovered Christian Science in the 60's while singing with a hard rock band in the San Francisco Bay area. I was instantly healed of an LSD overdose by turning to God. God's love flooded my thought and I felt a great peaceful presence. I called a friend's mother who was really loving and I told her what had happened. She brought me a copy of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy.Reading this book along with a deep study of the Bible, was the beginning of a journey that has healed and blessed me and those in my life beyond anything I thought possible.Within two years I married a wonderful man who was a Christian Science Army Chaplain and nine years later I was listed the Christian Science Journal, as a practitioner. In 2009 I attended the Normal Class and became a Christian Science Teacher. I'm humbly grateful to be involved in bringing this message of healing and hope to a hungry world, through writing for the Christian Science periodicals, the Daily lift, through scientific prayer, lecturing, and teaching.
