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.

Two meaningful healings

Over a long life as a Christian Scientist, I have learned that we must strive to maintain a state of consciousness that keeps the truth of being in the forefront of thought all the time. Mary Baker Eddy writes, “Keep in mind the verity of being,—that man is the image and likeness of God, in whom all being is painless and permanent” ( Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p.

Broken arm and arthritis healed

During World War I, my father sustained serious leg injuries and was sent back to England, where on further examination, the doctors felt his leg should be amputated. However, his brother had a copy of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy on his bookshelf, and although he had never taken up the study of Christian Science himself, he suggested that my father read the book, feeling sure he would receive help and comfort.

Injured back restored

Several years ago I led four young adults, who were visiting me, on a beautiful hike that ended at a fun waterfall. Sometimes people use a guide for this trip, and the guide provides entertainment by jumping off the 40-foot waterfall for all to see.

Freed from back pain

I was just finishing packing for a ten-day trip to help my mom care for a veritable sanctuary full of animals, when my husband’s back suddenly became extremely uncomfortable. He started limping and then had to crawl.

An end to severe menstrual cramps

In 1967 I had an instantaneous healing that convinced me Christian Science heals decisively and is the promised Comforter Christ Jesus said would come (see John 14:16–18 ).   For ten years, from seventh grade in school through college and beyond, I suffered every few months from severe menstrual cramps.

Prayer for a newborn

My husband and I are very grateful to have had home births for our three children, all of which were wonderful experiences. Immediately after the birth of our first child, however, there was a problem with the baby’s breathing.

Allergies healed

When I was a teenager, I began suffering from seasonal allergies at the end of each summer. Often when my family and friends were enjoying activities outdoors, I was either trying to keep up and feeling miserable, or cooped up indoors, not feeling much better.

A burden lightened

A number of years ago when I was unemployed, a friend recommended that I apply for a job where she worked, which was in the office of a private school. She said that they were looking for someone to help with the heavy workload.

Husband and wife healed

One evening a few years ago when my husband, Jonathan, and I had just returned from dinner at a restaurant, he began coughing and was unable to stop. As we are both students of Christian Science, he was grateful to have me declare aloud the truth of his being as the image and likeness of God—entirely spiritual—and therefore whole and free.

Safe in God

During the summer of 2014, I was abroad with some teens like me who are Christian Scientists. At one point I was feeling very sick to my stomach and was praying with anything I could think of.
