“What should I do with my life?” Lisa often wondered during her early twenties. She wasn’t sure where she was headed, but she was praying to be of service to humanity. That’s when it occurred to her: If we’re motivated by love in whatever we’re doing, even if our efforts seem small on the surface, then we’ll be living in accord with a power that genuinely makes a difference—the power of God, which the Bible says is Love itself.
At the time, she had begun to really open her heart to God and was learning from the study of Christian Science that the nature of our divine Creator is infinitely loving and we’re designed to express God’s love in beautiful and unique ways. It’s like each of us, including our daily endeavors, are made to be an artistic tapestry of divine Love.
This idea still inspires her each day to see and treat everyone she meets with love, to acknowledge their God-derived value, beauty, and uniqueness. Christian Science has shown Lisa how letting a truer sense of God’s all-defining love govern how we interact and genuinely care for each other actually leads the way to useful ideas and purposeful action, and improves society as a whole. Since her twenties, Lisa has seen how these views have led her and others in a variety of fruitful endeavors that bring genuine healing where it’s needed most.
Along the way, Lisa has worked with educational non-profits, contributed to community art events, participated in interfaith programs, and served as a Christian Science nurse. She is now in the full-time healing ministry as a Christian Science practitioner, teacher, and lecturer.
Moving past fear - to healing
Fear can be overcome and even healed in our lives by discovering the strong connection and relationship we have to something bigger than ourselves—God. By learning to lean and rely on this greater, higher good, we can feel moved to love beyond ourselves—and this frees us from fear and so much more.
