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

Every call is a joy

When I found Christian Science in 1995, it was a breath of fresh air. It gave me an understanding of life that finally made sense to me: an all-loving, all-intelligent Mind or Principle governing the universe through laws of harmony. I gradually learned how to apply this Science to all the challenges I was facing, and the healing results were wonderful. I was healed of many health problems (including a serious emotional and physical burnout), plus emotional scars from childhood and numerous fears. I was so enthusiastic about what I was learning that I longed to share it with others. To deepen my understanding of prayer-based healing, I took Christian Science Primary class instruction in 2004.

I’d been working as a counselor in women’s shelters, and my study of Christian Science was improving my work. But I felt I could help people more if I could pray with them. I yearned to spend my days in prayer and study, but I didn’t see how I could leave my job. I also wondered, “Am I good enough to be a healer?”
