Claim your true inheritance

Originally written in Spanish, this testimony first appeared in the June 2014 Spanish, Portuguese, French, and German editions of The Herald of Christian Science.

I began studying Christian Science over 25 years ago. At that time I was raising my four-year-old son on my own and dealing with some physical challenges. 

I’d been suffering from migraines for several years, an ailment that I supposedly had inherited from members of my family, as well as from a frequent sore throat, a condition my mother often had. 

We learn in Christian Science that we are the children of our heavenly Father-Mother God and can be heirs only to everything that is good. Mary Baker Eddy writes, “Heredity is a prolific subject for mortal belief to pin theories upon; but if we learn that nothing is real but the right, we shall have no dangerous inheritances, and fleshly ills will disappear” (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 228).
