The most recently-published testimonies are at the top.

No more falls

One morning about two years ago, as I was walking to the subway on my way to work, I fell down. I badly skinned one knee, hurt my ankle a bit, and broke the fall with both my wrists.

Back pain and abnormal growth healed

Christian Science has been proved throughout my life to be a reliable, consistent healing method. I was fortunate to attend a Christian Science Sunday School at a young age and to experience the healing effects that come from an understanding of spiritual truth.

Grateful for childhood healings

Thinking back over my spiritual education as a child and teenager, there are a number of experiences I could mention. Here, I’d like to express gratitude for my parents, who loved Christian Science, and tell of a few healings I had while we lived in what is now Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Painful foot condition gone

Two summers ago I began to experience some discomfort in my left foot while walking around. Thinking the pain probably resulted from being on hard ground, I decided that a better-cushioned shoe was what I needed.

Alcoholism healed

A long time ago, for a period of about 15 years, I quietly drank myself to sleep every night. I hated having this problem, and I quit drinking many times, only to come back and drink again.

Depression healed

A number of years ago, while working late, I was hit by a deep sense of depression. This condition had come and gone in the past, but it seemed particularly severe in this case.

An end to illness

On a Monday at the beginning of 2012, I was at work when I started to feel unwell. When I got home, I felt as if I had a fever.

Love meets the need

Walking through a car park recently, I heard the screams of a child after his brother had accidentally slammed a car door shut on his finger. I immediately ran over to them and found the boy wrapped in his mother’s arms.

Lost wedding ring found

My husband and I were on our honeymoon on safari in South Africa, having a glorious time spotting the “Big Five” (lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros) and getting to know the other guests and staff around our small camp. After an early morning game drive, my husband took a shower in one of the spare tents, because our hot water had run out.

Only good can go around

I teach English as a second language (ESL) classes in the evenings, and I just love my students. They work long hours at their jobs, and they also work hard in their English classes, yet they express so much joy.
