When Christly certainty wells up from within

At the time, it just came so naturally. I didn’t think of it as a demonstration of the spiritual truths I’d been learning in Christian Science. But now, these many years later, I know that it was. It had to do with my desire to own a piano. More about that in a moment.

I had started studying Christian Science a couple of years before I married, had continued studying it, and had experienced healings through my study. But I had made no commitment to its teachings. Then, when we had a toddler daughter and an infant son, I realized I had to make up my mind about the role Christian Science would play in raising them. My husband was a lifelong Christian Scientist with a full conviction of the validity and effectiveness of its teachings, but he wisely and lovingly left me to come to my own conclusions. So, I had been digging deeply into my study of the Bible and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy to find the answers—and a full conviction of the fundamental truths taught in Christian Science had taken root in my thinking to the extent that it had become my chosen way of life. And I was just naturally putting Christian Science into practice in my daily life, sometimes without even realizing I was doing that.
