I’ve always loved people—their life stories, their struggles, their successes. I regularly meet individuals actively cultivating their spiritual life. And I love sharing Science and Health with them!
I see much of my own journey in these seekers. A few years into my career in the mental health field, despite having achieved professional success, I felt empty inside. I had everything I’d been taught would make me happy but instead was dissatisfied and restless, yearning for something deeper. That’s when I was introduced to Christian Science through Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by religious reformer, Mary Baker Eddy. In it, I found a shared sacred space with the author and experienced a profound sense of coming home.
Some years later, I was compelled to leave my psychotherapy practice to focus completely on my Christian Science healing practice. It was an imperative demand from within me—I had to be true to myself. “His word is in my heart like a fire…I am weary of holding it in.”* I needed to practice in the way I understood would be most helpful.
Since then, sharing the revolutionary message contained in the pages of Science and Health has been the cornerstone of my life. What a special opportunity Christian Science lectures provide for opening the way for the spiritual seeker in all of us to learn, grow, and heal.
