‘I turned to Father-Mother God’

Thirty years ago, my husband left my four children and me. I experienced a great sense of loss, but my teenage daughter especially suffered from her father’s absence. 

We moved to the countryside, although my daughter stayed in Paris to continue her studies. Our new next-door neighbors were Christian Scientists. We started talking, and I quickly became interested in how they described their faith. 

About this time, I noticed a lump on my back. I realized it was a mole that had grown very big and ugly, along with a smaller one beside it. I had been studying the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, and I was already relying on my newly discovered understanding of God for healing. I was realizing that I was never alone and that God’s wonderful presence was always with me.
