I recently heard a man say in a Christian Science organization testimony meeting, “If you are afraid or unsure of sharing the healing power of Christian Science, just know that, for me, my life was a lot harder before I learned about Christian Science.” I certainly echo this sentiment in regard to my own life, having spent many years wandering in the wilderness of human beliefs searching for answers and divine inspiration. I turned to anything and everything to find the deep sense of peace and love I was yearning for. I was searching for healing in many aspects of my life.
Then I was gently led by a friend to consider the healing truths presented in the Bible. This eventually led me back to the writings of Mary Baker Eddy, the pioneering thinker who discovered Christian Science. This Science is based on the teachings and healing works of Christ Jesus, and my family had relied on it for generations, but I had discarded it until that point.
Since then, I have had countless powerful healings through the study and application of this Science, including of depression, intense headaches, broken bones, and more. I have often shared Mrs. Eddy’s primary text, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, because I have been healed by reading and studying the truths within it, including the truth that I am God’s dearly beloved child—created whole and complete in His, Her, image and likeness. Why not share the book that has brought such transformation and healing?
