SPIRITUAL JOURNEYS

A mother's search for spiritual understanding

"The anxiety I had felt about life faded away."

After the birth of our second child, I felt constant anguish about the responsibility of properly caring for our young children and the household. Underlying this anxiety was a larger issue for me: not understanding what God is or how to relate to Him. In addition, a long-standing back condition was aggravated to the point where walking was painfully difficult.

Even though I had relied mostly on physicians for my health needs, I was yearning to lean more on divine Spirit. In my extreme need it was natural that I might turn to Christian Science for help, since my family, as I was growing up, sometimes requested treatment through prayer from a kind aunt who was devoted to the practice of Christian Science. Beautiful healings followed these requests, one of which was my grandmother's healing of cataracts when she was in her seventies.
