I grew up in a family where Christian Science was at the heart. I deeply value the security I have always felt from knowing we can turn to God for help in any situation and find the inspiration and spiritual understanding we need in the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.
I distinctly remember the first healing that I had as a result of my own prayers. I was about six years old and prayed as I had been taught in Sunday School. I joined The Mother Church when I was twelve, and when I graduated from Sunday School I joined my branch church, took Primary class instruction and started teaching Sunday School myself.
My gratitude constantly increases to Mary Baker Eddy for her discovery of the Science by which Christ Jesus healed and through which his promise is fulfilled:
He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; John 14:12
I love the fact that this Science gives us a full understanding of God’s spiritual nature and our relationship with Him as His likeness, so we can demonstrate this eternal spiritual reality in our present human experience, “as in heaven, so on earth…” (Science and Health, p.17).
When you love Christian Science, you cannot keep it to yourself and so in 2006 I became a Journal-listed practitioner. I became a teacher of Christian Science in 2015 and am currently a member of the Board of Lectureship.
