I grew up attending a mainstream Protestant church

I grew up attending a mainstream Protestant church. When my marriage of twenty-eight years ended in divorce, I explored various religions and philosophies, searching for a spiritual understanding of God and man that would give more meaning to my life. Five years ago a family friend gave my son a copy of Science and Health, which he shared with me. Since then I have searched no further, for this wonderful book opened the door to a new understanding of God and my relationship to Him. I am continually learning to know and love and trust Him in my daily life.

Since my mother was a medical nurse, and I was always into all the current nutritional fads, I had found it easier to practice the truths of Christian Science in my human relationships than in healing sickness; I have had to work hard to understand God's allness and power to heal physically, and to know that as the child of God I can trust Him and totally rely on His loving care.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
