Grief, bodily growth, and shingles healed

This testimony was originally recorded as a Sentinel podcast, and published on the Web on July 12, 2012. It has been adapted for print.

When my son was killed in an automobile accident, my whole world was shaken. This happened before I found Christian Science, and at that point in my life, I thought that God was a punishing God. But I had heard that God was good, and I thought: “Well, if there is a God, and God is good, God would not do this to a mother. No one who is good would take a child away.”

This took me on an intense search. I talked to ministers, I read books, I listened to everything I thought would help. But every time I tried to understand or look for comfort in the Bible, nothing was making sense. It just kept raising more questions. It seemed like I was reading and exploring almost 24 hours a day. I was desperate to make some sense of what had happened.

In this search, I attended a nondenominational inspirational meeting. The man who addressed it introduced himself as a family counselor, but his talk was more about good, about God, and about healing. Afterward, I made an appointment to see him.
