Article
After beginning my study of Christian Science, I became conscious for the first time that through God-directed prayer, I could grow out of anything that did not align with God’s idea of me as a perfect, spiritual expression of His nature and qualities. Now I wondered if this could include changing my view of children.

How I found Christian Science
The two books that changed my life—the Bible, and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy—came to my attention a decade ago at a time when I was facing physical and emotional challenges that had begun early in life.

Editorial
What our neighbors near and far most need is for limited, worldly thinking to increasingly give way to a scientific, spiritual understanding of reality. Each time we grow in our grasp of this, the balance of human consciousness shifts in this direction. These shifts, no matter how modest, are deeply meaningful.
