God’s closeness

From the February 2012 issue of The Christian Science Journal

I grew up in a Christian Science family, where my brother and sister and I learned that God was “a very present help in trouble” ( Psalms 46:1 ), and that the teachings of Christ Jesus show us the meaning of God and how He loves us. We studied the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, and everything I learned from her also guided me deep into the Bible, where again, I learned that I was loved as a child of God.
