My love for God and the Science of Christianity truly began to accelerate while I was in elementary school, not long after I first was introduced to Christian Science. I was healed instantly of injuries suffered in an accident and from that point forward my life was pointed towards the public practice of Christian Science healing.
I’ve always been struck by how Christian Science effectively rouses in people a deep appreciation for the wonderful and utterly complete kingdom of God already present, already within. Class instruction reveals in clear-cut detail the nature of this magnificent kingdom. And it brings out in both the students and teacher what the practice of Christian Science means to mankind—how it is tangible evidence that the Comforter Jesus promised has indeed come again.
When I took class instruction, besides becoming familiar with God’s all-encompassing and loving power to heal, I was impressed by the breathtaking privilege we all have of serving as what could be defined as modern-day disciples. In the 21st Century, to heal through a realization of God’s allness, matter’s unreality, and man’s flawless, spiritual nature is truly to be as radical as Jesus’ disciples were 2000 years ago.
I have enjoyed serving The Mother Church in various ways including, in 2008, being elected for a one year term as President. In 1988, I first advertised in The Christian Science Journal as a practitioner, and in 1997 became a teacher of Christian Science.
