ANYONE CAN BE A HEALER
A CONTINUAL JOY
WHEN I WAS A CHILD, I was diagnosed with a birth defect in one of my ears. At the time, my family were not Christian Scientists. There were years of pain and weekly medical treatments, before finally a wonderful instantaneous healing came when I felt the presence and power of divine Love, as the result of my mother's prayer. My mother had found Christian Science through a friend and had herself been healed of a long-standing illness. I was ten years old when I had my healing, and this experience established early on my love for and trust in God.
My first steps in the public practice of Christian Science came some years later, after I'd joined The Mother Church and taken Christian Science class instruction. I was teaching a college-age class in Sunday School. And in order to prepare for the challenging questions that arose, I spent a lot of time each week in a deep study of the Christian Science Bible Lesson. The students had begun calling to ask me to pray for them, and then even some of their parents asked for treatment. Those years of teaching Sunday School put me on a wonderful path to spiritual growth—to loving the systematic study of Christian Science and putting into practice what I was learning.
