News of Healing


The healings we publish are verified by people who can vouch for the testifier or who know of the healing. Examples of Christian healing from individuals and families around the world have been published in the Christian Science periodicals for well over a century.

The most recently-published testimonies are at the top.

Quick recovery from poison ivy

One Friday, while getting some bales of straw out of a barn, I apparently came in contact with poison ivy. By that evening my skin was itching relentlessly.

Healed on a family vacation

Some years ago my family took a beach vacation together. Early on in the trip, my husband was playing with our young children in the shallow water, when suddenly he felt a debilitating pain in one foot.

Healed while traveling

In May of 2013, I had the wonderful opportunity to travel to Tibet. I prayed a lot during my preparation for the trip and gained one inspiration after another.

Symptoms of food poisoning overcome

In the summer of 1996, my husband and I took a vacation trip to Alaska, which included a cruise from Anchorage to Vancouver, British Columbia, along the Inside Passage. On the trip, we were treated to beautiful scenery, views of glaciers, and stops in a few colorful towns along the way, topped off with a final celebration banquet.

‘Just sleep’ moment replaced with prayer

One Sunday, after attending my branch Church of Christ, Scientist, and running a few errands, I came home feeling awful, struggling with flu-like symptoms. I put on my pajamas, snuggled up with a blanket in a chair, and wrestled with a very strong desire to just sleep.

The healing power of thanksgiving

A couple of years ago I became ill the day before Thanksgiving. My wife and I had already volunteered to host an extended family dinner for the holiday.

Healed while hiking

Last June I was on a vacation in Yosemite National Park with my grandson. We were climbing over a lot of boulders as big as cars and trucks.

A quick healing

If ever I had any doubt about Christian Science treatment, it was put to rest some time ago. I was doing some follow-up reading several days after my annual Christian Science students’ association meeting.

Proofs of God’s love in my life

I was introduced to Christian Science a few years ago by a friend who lives in my neighborhood. We would read the weekly Christian Science Bible Lesson together, and I felt a great sense of peace when we talked about the concepts we were studying in Christian Science.

Knee pain healed

Five years ago, I was in severe pain every time I bent or stretched my legs. It was very hard for me to move around without limping.
