Healing in the hair salon

I love all the different Christian Science periodicals: the Journal, Sentinel, Herald, the weekly Bible Lesson, and especially the Monitor. When I’m prayerfully reading these publications, I often feel God leading my thought so that any fearful concerns I face in my day are corrected and reversed. I also see how reading expands my love for God and my fellow man—it has happened so many times. It reminds me of something the Apostle Paul wrote in Philippians: “Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus” (2:4, 5).

I remember one of the earliest times I experienced a healing from reading The Christian Science Monitor—it was just after I had become employed as a new hair stylist at a salon in my neighborhood. I was sitting at my station one day and feeling concerned about not having any clients. My pay was on commission, so it depended on the clients I served.
