I grew up in a secular household, but always craved a more spiritual understanding of life and my relationship with God. I’d read many philosophical and metaphysical books that talked about a higher, universal power, but when I found Christian Science, I was excited to have found that missing piece that explained how I am always connected to God and that He governs all aspects of our lives.
Within a few months of studying Christian Science, I began to learn more and more about the truth of my being—that my health is defined in spiritual, not material, terms.
One day during this time, I visited my former midwife for my routine gynecological exam. During this visit, she found a lump in my breast. She recommended that I have further testing done, and I told her I would take some time to determine my next course of action.
