I am a fourth generation Christian Science practitioner living in Tennessee with my husband, Bill. Starting from the time I was in grade school, I had opportunities to put into practice the ideas that I was learning in the Christian Science Sunday school with classmates. I also discovered, during those years, that I loved the arts, especially visual art and singing. It became clear to me in my continuing study of Christian Science that God is the source of all good and that the talents I was expressing all came from infinite God, good. I knew the ability to heal also came from that same source of infinite Love and so it just felt natural to become a full-time Christian Science Practitioner in 2005.
I have such deep gratitude for the healings my family and I have experienced, that I want to share with anyone seeking to have a better understanding of God and those who have questions about Christian Science. I’ve had many opportunities to do so with members of our community, including those of other faith traditions, through interfaith work. As our children were growing up they understood that our home was a safe space where everyone was accepted and no questions were off-limits, which resulted in deep conversations about spirituality and expanded our sense of family. This continuing desire to share Christian Science is what led me to apply for Normal class in 2021.
