What Janet loves about Christian Science is the way it answers pressing questions that come to all of us. Questions like: Who am I? Why am I here? How can I find health and happiness? These questions were uppermost in her thought as she entered college. She studied music composition at Washington University in St. Louis. Then, she moved to Chicago, to earn a master’s degree in music. Around that time, she was introduced to Christian Science and began finding the answers to her questions about identity, purpose, and health, which made a huge difference in her life.

For the next several years, she composed and produced original music for theatre productions and film. Later, Janet and her husband, Jim, ran a music production company, producing music for radio, television, and other media.

Throughout this time, Janet continued to apply the spiritual ideas she was learning to every facet of life. Her growing understanding of the way Christian Science explains existence took the mystery out of living and removed much fear. This new light so changed her life that it stirred within her a desire to help others find spiritual answers. Janet left the music business to enter the full-time Christian Science healing practice, and later became a Christian Science teacher.

Janet’s life has been transformed from living in fear for her health and uncertainty about the future to feeling secure in the spiritual basis for health and having a joyous expectation of good. This transformation showed her the life-changing power of God’s goodness and the healing that results from understanding our oneness with God. These ideas have been useful to Janet in her  healing work, and she loves sharing them in her prison ministry, with interfaith groups, and in the public talks she gives on Christian Science.


Discover ever present Love active in your life

Love might be what life is all about. This talk will show how a bigger, truer sense of God can bring more thoughtful, tender affection to your relationships. You will hear how a sense of God as Love refines our search for love, helps us deal with a lack or loss of love, and can also result in physical healing.

How to make change for the better

I may not be an architect, but I know the value of a strong foundation. My life improved when I began building on new views of myself and my identity, which sprang from a better concept of God than I’d had before. This better concept of God brought healing changes to my life in a way that was deep and lasting.

Building this new foundation began when my mother-in-law introduced me to Christian Science. As I explored the ideas in the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, I began to get a very different view of God. Never before had I encountered the idea that God is not merely sometimes good or just a little bit good, but all good, only good, always. To think of God as pure goodness, and to discover that this same all-good God was the source of what I am and what everyone is without exception, was, to me, a new and life-changing way to think about existence.

These new ideas showed me the power of God, divine goodness, at work in all of our lives--providing solutions to challenges such as sickness, dishonesty, and career setbacks, which often seem like they can shake our foundation and connection to what’s good. This had a practical effect in my own life, bringing a quick healing of a long-standing food allergy. And, as time has gone on, this foundational understanding of God as pure good has transformed my life in many ways, including the healing of a serious illness and the restoration of my career.

I invite you to join me in discovering how you can establish your own strong foundation and experience the life-changing effects of building on this solid basis for yourself and the world.
