Next in our biweekly series on how people have nurtured their public practice of Christian Science.

ANYONE CAN BE A HEALER

INSIDE THE CIRCLE OF LOVE

When I Was 13, a school friend asked me to pray for her. Recently, I came across a little book, in which I'd noted the thoughts that came to me while praying and the joy I felt at having been asked to help. This marked when God planted the seed in my heart that would grow and one day flower into the full-time practice of Christian Science.

When that moment came, it seemed that the timing couldn't have been worse. Our children were half-grown, the mortgage was nowhere near half-paid, and we had some debts. My husband had had to make a change in his business affairs that year, which meant his income initially dropped by one third. We'd done everything we could think of to make ends meet, including putting our house on the market. But even amid what looked like impossible financial circumstances, I knew that God's timing is never wrong, and that this long-cherished idea could come to fruition.
