I was raised in Christian Science

I was raised in Christian Science. My parents didn't preach it, but they surely lived it. (And they still do!) Over the years I've had so many wonderful things happen to me because of Christian Science—as I've studied and practiced it—that Science is now truly my way of life as well.

I'd like to share a healing I had in 1977. At the beginning of my last year of graduate school I became ill. The disease was never medically diagnosed. Although I was able to meet the basic demands of my academic research and I continued to be active in the local branch church, it became a struggle to keep going.

The summer before this, I'd had class instruction from an authorized teacher of Christian Science. Now I eagerly put into practice what I'd learned about Christian Science treatment or spiritually scientific prayer. Each time I felt ill, I would deny the reality of discord and affirm God's perfect government of and love for all His children, including me. I thought that I was doing a marvelous job of praying, and yet the illness persisted.
