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.

Listening for God—needs met

I remember many a night crying myself to sleep, wondering just how I’d feed my three children the next day. I was a single parent, a high-school dropout, with no job, no long-term home, no income, but with the highest expectation and no doubt that God was leading me each step of the way to live by my highest sense of right.

Injured finger healed

As a lifelong Christian Scientist, I’ve found prayer, based on a spiritual understanding of God and His perfect creation, to be an effective means of healing. I’ve experienced many proofs of God’s healing presence and power throughout my life.

A spiritual sense of home brings healing

Reading a testimony in a recent Sentinel about a family’s protection while living far from their home country made me realize that it’s time I give similar thanks. When our daughter was three, my husband accepted a position in a small Himalayan country, where we made our home for more than two years.

Healed after mountain biking accident

It’s time to publicly give thanks to God for a healing I had years ago when mountain biking with some friends. We were heading down the mountain to go home.

A dancer’s healing

I am a professional ballet dancer, and last winter I was excited about the opportunity to take some classes with the person who’d been my first ballet teacher. One morning, I woke up with severe discomfort in both my hamstrings.

Abscessed tooth healed

Recently, when I went to the dentist to have my teeth cleaned, both the dentist and the hygienist recommended that I have a tooth extracted immediately as it was abscessing. I had no idea this was happening, as I was not in any pain, but listened while they recommended a specialist.

Sorrow and illness healed

On Halloween 11 years ago, I was taking my two-year-old daughter around the neighborhood to trick-or-treat. My husband stayed home with our newborn daughter to pass out candy when trick-or-treaters came to our house.

Broken bones healed

I would like to share several Christian Science healings our family has had of broken bones. The first was in May 1985, when my older son, Gus, was in fourth grade and was injured at a Boy Scout camp.

A healing from a psalm

Here’s an example of a time a favorite passage from the book of Psalms was instrumental in effecting a healing. I had been serving as a Reader in my branch Church of Christ, Scientist, when I began experiencing flulike symptoms.

Healed after a fall

I would like to express my gratitude for a healing after a fall, through Christian Science treatment. I live with my daughter, her husband, and my grandchildren.
