ANYONE CAN BE A HEALER

A GOAL TO HELP OTHERS

IN 1990 I FELT IMPELLED to pursue a career in Christian Science nursing. I was in a good management position that would probably continue to grow, and yet my life felt empty. I recalled a brief time I'd spent working in a private residential living facility. It had been demanding work—and I must admit I'd felt unappreciated at times. But when I realized it probably required as much humility for the residents to ask for assistance as was required of me at the time to help them, my pride melted. I began to feel love for each one.

When I left that work after several months, I felt that it had been a wonderful, broadening, learning experience. Working in a field radically different from anything I'd ever done before had stretched me and at the same time boosted my selfconfidence. Still, I never thought I'd want to enter a nursing career. And yet now becoming a Christian Science nurse was all I could think about.
