Our occasional series on how people have nurtured their public practice of Christian Science healing.

TIME AND SPACE TO PRAY

A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO, I attended a "Healing Goals Meeting" sponsored by The Mother Church. One idea from the meeting that really spoke to me was a quote from the Bible that "the harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few" (Luke 10:2). I went home inspired to be a "laborer." Nothing seemed more important to me than to serve God by devoting myself to a deeper understanding of Christian Science and of God's healing power.

At the time I had two very young children, and my everyday life was filled to the brim with all the necessary demands of child-raising. I was so busy that I had no time for myself—certainly not for deeply studying the Bible and Science and Health, which I longed to do. One day I found that bumps had broken out all over my body. I called a Christian Science practitioner for help through prayer. I immediately knew that this skin condition was the result of inner frustration coming to the surface, and I asked God to show me what to do.
