Mary Baker Eddy biographies—practical guides for healers

From the May 2022 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Much inspiration has come to me over the years from reading various biographies of Mary Baker Eddy. Each biography brings a different glimpse into how Mrs. Eddy lived her practice of Christian Science and healed. These written treasures offer instruction as to how we, too, can heal spiritually.

A recollection from Mrs. Eddy’s life became especially meaningful to me several years ago. I was working for an organization whose members would often come into the office. One particular member would do nothing but complain about everyone and everything when she dropped in. I dreaded her visits. Every time I saw her approach the office, I would prepare for another onslaught of disparaging remarks. 

One day this woman’s negative attitude upset me so much that I grumbled along unhappily as I walked several blocks down the street to run errands. She had really robbed me of my joy. Or so I thought.
