Turning Point

The path back

She hadn’t thought about God or spirituality since she was a teenager. But in a remote wilderness, with no other help, this author discovered that God, divine Love, was just as present as she’d known Him to be during her childhood.

‘How is God even relevant to me right now?’

She thought a life of partying would be so much more satisfying than being a “naïve” Christian Scientist. Several years later, lost and depressed, she began asking the question: Could God be there after all? And could He help her out of this mess?

The best gift I ever got

Before that summer at camp, she’d always been the girl who went to the “strange” church. But a dramatic healing changed her view of what it means to be a Christian Scientist.

When God broke through

For this author, a black belt test in tae kwon do became a turning point in her understanding and practice of Christian Science.

The ride of my life

At age 14, she faced a turning point in her life: sell her beloved horse. Christian Science came to her rescue in more ways than one.

Outward bound

When things started falling apart her freshman year, this college student needed a new, more spiritual perspective. Thanks to a surprise visitor, she found one—and it proved to be a turning point in her life.
