I was in my late teens when God became more real to me as an infinitely loving presence. At the time, I was struggling with tough relationship problems, so I was wide open to seeking divine answers. I began to earnestly study Christian Science, which I knew transformed lives because it had healed my mom of a bipolar disorder diagnosed as incurable. As I really prayed and studied the Bible and Science and Health, they awakened me to a larger view of life as being forever inseparable from divine Love. This freed me from the relationship issues, healed me of a skin condition, and changed my character for the better. Yearning to share God’s healing nature more with others, I took Primary class in 1994, where I learned how prayer, based on our unity with God, consistently heals and brings solutions to our lives, communities, and world. Proving this has been at the heart of my life’s work, whether serving in educational nonprofits, working as a Christian Science nurse, or serving in various church capacities, including currently as a Christian Science lecturer. I was an art major in college, and have enjoyed living in many places throughout the United States. One of my favorite activities nowadays is hiking with my husband in the mountains of Northwest Arkansas. I’ve loved being in the full-time ministry of Christian Science healing since 2010, and now as a 2021 graduate of Normal class it’s a joy to share the Science of Christ-healing through teaching.
