Turning Point

The perfect relationship?

She was deeply in love with her boyfriend, and even after some bumps, she thought they were on solid ground. But as she trusted the relationship to God and prayed for direction, she heard some unexpected guidance that had life-changing effects.

‘I stopped smoking pot’

She thought getting high was the answer to her shyness. Then she thought it was a way to deepen her spirituality. But when the Bible and the Christian Science textbook came into her life, she finally found real answers to those issues—and everything else.

What’s life about?

She thought she had it all: Money. Clothes. Success. But when a friend asked about the meaning of life, this author was brought up short. What was life really all about? A return to Christian Science unlocked the answers and proved to be a turning point on her own path.

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.
