Where the heart finds home

From the September 2013 issue of The Christian Science Journal

When Marie Helm made her first visit to Russia in 1991, little did she suspect the spiritual adventure that awaited her, and how much at home she would come to feel there. As she became acquainted with the Russian people and began learning their language, she soon discovered their deep yearning to know more about God. It was in Russia that Marie took her first steps into the public practice of Christian Science, and she began healing patients there even before she could speak more than a few words of the language. 

In 2000 Marie was listed in The Christian Science Journal as a practitioner, and four years later she began serving as a practitioner in St. Petersburg, Russia. In 2005 she joined the Christian Science Board of Lectureship and began lecturing—in Russian—throughout the Russian-speaking field. In 2006 she became a teacher of Christian Science. Marie lives six months of each year in St. Petersburg, where her class and association are held.
