ANYONE CAN BE A HEALER

A WITNESS TO GOOD: AT SUMMER CAMP AND BEYOND

WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL, considering my next steps after graduation, a Sunday School teacher talked to me about Christian Science nursing. He shared some informational brochures with our family, and I decided this healing ministry looked right for me. So after I graduated, I moved away from home to begin Christian Science nurses' training.

In the Christian Science nursing program, I learned to make Christian Science my own. No longer was my dad waking me up before school to read the Bible Lesson. I was learning how to apply in my own way the healing system that Jesus taught. The privilege of supporting individuals who were relying radically on Christian Science for healing made me the woman I am today. During that time, the staff I worked with included former lawyers, scientists, medical nurses, businessmen and-women, educators, and artists who had laid aside their former professions to embrace Christian Science nursing. Each brought invaluable talents to bear on their ministries—and I was so proud to be in the ranks!
