As a preschooler, I fell out of a tree, badly wounding my arm. Worried that my dad, not a Christian Scientist, would be alarmed, my mom considered taking me to a doctor. I innocently looked up at her and said, “Can’t God heal it?” That was it! She immediately called a Christian Science Practitioner and it was soon healed through prayer.
In Viet Nam, I contracted malaria, (medically diagnosed), and again I turned to God, asking a Christian Science Practitioner to pray with me, and I was healed without medicine.
I am convinced, from these two instances and many, many more, healing myself and others, that the very best means by which to free people from illnesses, accidents, financial, relationship, and all other challenges, is by following the Master, Christ Jesus, as Mary Baker Eddy did, the discoverer and founder of Christian Science.
With an undergraduate degree in marketing, and an MBA, I pursued a business career, culminating as CEO of an international foundation. I also served as Christian Science Committee on Publication for Michigan and later the Internet.
Out of a sincere desire to help others find healing, as I had found it, I entered the public practice of Christian Science. Later, wishing to support others in their healing practice, I completed Normal Class.
I speak French fluently, my wife, Linda, is also studying French, and we both enjoy dancing, motorcycling and hiking.
