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.

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.

Abundance after divorce

When I went through a divorce a number of years ago, I tried to keep myself above the fray, above the suggestions of fear, lack, and loneliness, but it was difficult at best. One of my greatest fears was that I would have to pay my ex-wife a substantial amount of money each month for the rest of her life, and then I wouldn’t have enough for myself or any future family I might have.

Lifted out of addiction

Some years ago I found myself in a tough situation. I was hooked on marijuana and feeling guilty, sad, and lost.

Not impressed by symptoms

Many years ago, I heard a Christian Science lecture in which the lecturer shared an experience he had had while taking a martial arts class. Each week his instructor would try different ways of flipping him, until it became difficult for the instructor to do so.

'Pure joy' replaces pain

A few years ago, my husband and I had accepted an invitation to housesit for friends living near London, while they traveled in America with another couple. We arrived at our friend’s house, and my husband was to drive everyone to the airport.
