Growing into the practice

I first developed the desire to be a Christian Science practitioner while raising my three children. Taking Christian Science Primary class instruction showed me the effectiveness of praying daily for myself, family members, church, community, and the world.

One crowning demonstration came when I was healed after sustaining an internal head injury. As I gave myself a Christian Science treatment, I felt an overwhelming sense of God’s unconditional love for me. I like to call this feeling the “Christ surge” because it comes from allowing the Christ, God’s message to each of us, to alleviate all fear in thought. It lets me know that I can have confidence in God’s healing power. Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “Become conscious for a single moment that Life and intelligence are purely spiritual,—neither in nor of matter,—and the body will then utter no complaints. If suffering from a belief in sickness, you will find yourself suddenly well” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 14).
