Christian Science was introduced to my family by my grandfather as a result of his complete healing of severe head injuries. Many healings in our family and a happy Sunday School experience followed. Even so, I left Christian Science while in college to find Truth for myself. I wasn't gone long. As I started to see how relevant Christian Science was in all areas of life, I joined the Christian Science Organization on campus. A more profound sense of Christian Science as the law of Love and as the universal force behind all peace, health, and progress amazed me. And I wanted more.
Primary class instruction was a natural next step in 1978. It's given me a foundation for the spiritual growth that continues today. While whitewater kayaking, I met and later married Rick in 1986. Soon after, I became an administrator for a Christian Science nursing facility and then a mother of two boys. During quiet times at night, I started writing for our Christian Science periodicals.
Later, I worked for The Mother Church to support the worldwide distribution of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. This led to becoming a Journal-listed practitioner in 2006. I saw how close and far-reaching the demand for metaphysical healing is. A deep desire to help meet this need resulted in being accepted for Normal class in 2015. From October 2016 to March 2019, I had the great joy of serving as Associate Editor of the Christian Science Journal, Sentinel, and Herald magazines.
I have been teaching since 2016 and found that teaching is a discipline and a delight. It is a privilege to teach others who love God, and are eager to learn, heal, and share the healing message of Christian Science.
