I want to say how grateful I am for a lifetime of healing experiences in Christian Science. I can’t imagine life without Christian Science.
One day several years ago, I was out running on a macadam path around a lake near my home. My young daughter was running with me, and I was encouraging her to keep running, as well as enjoying the beautiful scenery on what was a sunny fall day.
This testimony is shared in gratitude to God, and to Mary Baker Eddy for bringing the laws of Christian healing that Christ Jesus practiced into focus for all of us. During the winter of 2016–2017, there was an outbreak of flu and respiratory infection in part of the state where I live.
Only one more day before the start of school! The children were so looking forward to it, especially our youngest, who was starting kindergarten and excited to get to join her older brother and sister in being at school all day long. We had saved this day as a fun “getting all the last-minute things for school” day, and all of us were anticipating a great time together.
I am so deeply grateful for Christian Science, and the wonderfully powerful influence it has had in my life. In fact, God and Christian Science are what I treasure most.
I would like to thank everyone who has publicly shared a testimony of healing in Christian Science. It can’t help but bless its hearers and readers, although we don’t always know how.
One day this past winter, as I was about to go to work, I slipped and fell backward on the icy driveway, my elbow hitting the ground first. I heard a loud cracking sound and felt a sharp pain, and it appeared that something was broken.
My understanding and demonstration of Christian Science have slowly grown and expanded over the years. Through much prayer and many experiences of healing, I have come to trust God with my daily life and with every bit of my existence.
One day last year, I noticed my throat becoming sore. I turned to prayer, but the soreness seemed to increase over the course of the day.
As a student of Christian Science I have had the opportunity to witness many healings for others as well as for myself. Praying with the many resources for studying and practicing Christian Science—including the Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and other writings by Mary Baker Eddy, the Christian Science Sentinel , The Christian Science Journal , The Christian Science Monitor, and the Christian Science Hymnal— I have been healed of bone deterioration, periodontal disease, and hypothyroidism (see “ Hypothyroidism healed ,” Sentinel, December 3, 2012).
