As a teen I began to feel a deep intuition about the presence and power of a profoundly loving God, which became increasingly important to me. "How does God know himself and all of his creation?" I wondered.  I desired to know Him as He knows Himself! Several remarkable healings came as a result of my study of Christian Science, and put me on the path leading to a realization that the kingdom of heaven is indeed not out of reach, but right here within our innate consciousness of infinite good.

I found myself convinced that Jesus’ command to his disciples, "Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons, freely ye have received, freely give,” was meant for all of us. He knew that there is nothing more vital to us than the perpetual discernment of our divinely derived perfection—the kingdom within—and the blessing it brings of spiritual peace and healing.

Primary class instruction amplified my love for God and expanded it so that I could see clearly the vastness of Christian Science—its loving reach—and our ability as disciples of Christ to bring man’s birthright of freedom and harmony to this age.

I have lived in and loved four countries, worn the hat of a business woman, a mother, a college advisor for Christian Science organizations, and been a resident counselor for teens. I entered the full-time practice of Christian Science in 2007 and took Normal class in 2015.
