Christian Science has had a healing presence in my family for generations. My mother’s healing of cancer when I was very young brought my first close involvement with the study and practice of Christian Science - and my first sense of “calling.”
Christian Science Sunday School further laid foundations in spiritual education and awareness of the Bible’s healing power. A teacher supported my healing through prayer at 17 of a triple skull fracture and brain contusion from a near-fatal auto accident.
My school-years studies included piano, dance, and vocal music.
Marriage and two children were followed by a move from Wisconsin to Texas. Later, beginning years as a single Mom left me without adequate finances, and feeling up against it. Under these challenges, I strengthened my footing in Christian Science, and found courage, stability, and direction needed for moving ahead. My toddler son’s rapid healing of accident-related injuries assured me Christian Science provided my children’s precious care too.
An advancing career in Human Resources enabled a move to Virginia. Rich years of active branch church membership, class instruction, solid marriage, a family business, and work supporting Christian Science nursing followed.
We have two dear granddaughters close-by to share crafts, books, cooking, and outdoor fun.
I began advertising my healing practice in The Christian Science Journal in 1992, embracing community service, working with disadvantaged children, and serving as a jail chaplain. Normal class in 2009 added the beautiful dimension of teaching, helping others deepen and advance their spiritual pursuits.
