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.

Severe sore throat healed

In the fall of 2002, I struggled on and off with a sore throat. I worked with a Christian Science practitioner, but after several weeks I went to a Christian Science nursing facility because the symptoms had become more aggressive.

No ‘delay’ to God’s present perfection

Last winter while I was attending a meeting in Houston, a rare cold snap brought ice to the area, canceling flights and stranding me at the airport. As I worked with the airline to try to get a flight out later that day, I received a text from my wife back home in Oregon that our five-year-old son appeared to be ill with the flu.

A Christmas full of peace

Last December, as I was busily preparing for the Christmas holidays and frustrated that I was not accomplishing what I wanted to, I was suddenly stricken with severe pain and other symptoms that seemed to indicate a bladder problem.

A healing abroad

In the summer of 2013, I went on a service trip with my DiscoveryBound National Leadership Council class (a leadership group for high school students who are Christian Scientists) to Sarapiqui, Costa Rica. We were there to help the community in any way we could.

Hearing restored

For the past few years, I have served as a volunteer in the Foster Grandparents program at a local elementary school. I greatly enjoy my role as one-on-one reading coach and art mentor.

Head injury healed

I am grateful for The Christian Science Journal and the Sentinel magazines. They figured prominently in a healing I had of a head injury.

Our daughter’s healing

One night, when our now-adult daughter was two years old, she became very uncomfortable and feverish. She was crying and tossing and turning in her bed.

Healing and protection on an airplane

Many years ago, my husband, two of our children, and I flew from New York to Chicago to visit my family. My husband, who had a license to fly without instruments (he had not yet had instrument training), was the one piloting the single-engine plane we were in.
