GROWTHS HEALED THROUGH GROWING SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING
Over 20 years ago, I met a life-long Christian Scientist who became my second husband. I felt it was important for families to attend church together, and I began attending church with him (along with my two children and his one). I also started studying the weekly Bible Lessons from the Christian Science Quarterly, and the more I did, the more I liked what I read.
Christian Science presented God as a loving Creator—something that had not been part of my prior religious training. But I think I'd always felt intuitively that this was the true God. In addition, I was learning that my real being was spiritual, and that as a child of God, I did not need to accept that disease or pain had power over me. I really wanted to understand what I was learning and to demonstrate the spiritual healing that this understanding makes possible.
