From the February 2006 issue of The Christian Science Journal

If you'd asked me a few years ago, I probably would have said that Christian Science is just another religion. It didn't really seem practical to me—more like something you only thought about at church on Sundays. But little by little over the last couple of years I've been seeing something different. Christian Science is practical. It's relevant. It's fantastic, really!

Once I started really living like a Christian Scientist, putting Christian Science into practice, I began to see that no problem is without a solution. Christian Science isn't about being labeled, or about do's and don'ts. I think living as a Christian Scientist means taking everything to God, just having a constant willingness to listen to Him and to see things from His perspective.

Even if you have the smallest concern or problem in your life, you can still take it to God and find an answer. It's been amazing to see that. And practicing Christian Science definitely doesn't mean just having physical healings all the time. Those do come, but what's been so meaningful to me has been seeing that God isn't just there when everything is falling apart or when something is wrong. He's omnipresence—all there is and all that's there. You can feel His presence anytime. You can ask for help or look for answers, and He's always there to provide them.
