Here is a brief sketch of my own journey of learning to live from a spiritual perspective.
A career in spiritual healing—I could never have imagined that! I loved my work as a financial accountant for a railroad company--trains are COOL!
But work was often intense. Pressures at work overflowed causing stress at home as well. I began to suffer severe anxiety attacks and missed work frequently.
I sought help from health and medical sources. I talked to everyone, seeking advice and opinions. Then I stumbled upon the Christian Science Sentinel at the washeteria. What I read there began to help immediately. I wanted to learn more. And so my spiritual journey began.
FINDING SPIRITUAL ANSWERS
Finding a gift copy of the Christian Science Sentinel was a life changer for me. It had tips on parenting from a spiritual standpoint, something I needed as a new mom.
Other ideas helped dissolve the stress I suffered from. Instead of showing how they relied on themselves to govern their lives, each writer shared experiences of how they learned to trust God's control in their daily lives. This was a completely new idea to me.
I also discovered the Christian Science Bible Lesson. Reading it provided spiritual nourishment and brought a sense of peace and comfort to my day.
HEALING AND TEACHING
I learned about Christian Science class instruction as an essential aid to living from a more spiritual standpoint. I learned how to heal through this teaching. This course set my life in a whole new direction.
Within five years I had launched into the healing practice of Christian Science, eager to share this spiritual way of living with others. I've had
abundant joy in this work through many rich and varied experiences. It’s been over twenty-five years and now I also teach that course called Christian Science class instruction.
