I am very grateful for two healings I had during the past couple of years. It was an understanding of Christian Science, gained through my study of the Bible and of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, that brought them about.
In the fall of 2018, after what had seemed to be only a slight back-pulling injury, my condition rapidly worsened. At times I was nearly immobile and almost always in great physical discomfort.
As the COVID-19 crisis deepened, I turned to Mary Baker Eddy’s short article titled “Contagion” (see Miscellaneous Writings 1883 – 1896, pp. 228–229 ) for insight and inspiration.
As a parent of two young children, I am truly grateful that my study of Christian Science has taught me that I can turn to God in any situation. When searching for clarity, whether it’s regarding a health issue or disharmony between family members, I’m learning to trust that God is always there for us.
Four years ago, I was celebrating our country’s Independence Day. It was a beautiful summer day, and our family was enjoying an afternoon with friends at their lake house.
Early in my engineering career, I traveled to a coal-fired power plant with some senior engineers. I was asked to go to the flat rooftop of the plant to take photos of some structural elements.
One morning after I let my horse, Peppe, out of his stall, he slowly walked to an enclosed arena and collapsed to the ground. I tried to get him up but to no avail.
It is well past time for me to come out of the woodwork and finally share my first testimony of healing through Christian Science. I knew that I would do this eventually, and since at this writing there is much need for help and healing around the world, this is a particularly opportune time to do it.
My family and I were looking forward to a long Christmas road trip. But as it approached, members of the family began experiencing flu symptoms.
The Bible tells the inspiring story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego (see Daniel 3 ), three Hebrew captives who so clearly understood the supreme power and goodness of God that they refused to bow down to King Nebuchadnezzar’s golden idol. Despite the king’s threats, they stood firm in their faith, and were thrown into a blazing furnace as punishment.
