      Growing up, I always thought I would be an attorney, possibly with a career in public service. I wanted to make a difference in the lives of others. I loved reading about various politicians and Supreme Court justices, and admired some of them greatly. In college, I majored in political science and planned on attending law school.
      During these years, I was also gaining a great love for Christian Science. A history class I took asked students to make a list of great people throughout history. I found myself thinking, “The greatest man in history, the one I should emulate, is Christ Jesus.” This was quite a revelation to me, and caught me off guard. What would happen to my law career? I wondered. Then one day I found this passage in the book of Psalms in the Bible: “O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day” (119:97). I knew then that the practice of God’s law, as taught and demonstrated by Christ Jesus and illuminated in the textbook of Christian Science – “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” by Mary Baker Eddy – would be my career. I would be a Christian healer, a Christian Science practitioner. In her book “Rudimental Divine Science,” Mrs. Eddy defined Christian Science this way: “As the law of God, the law of good, interpreting and demonstrating the divine Principle and rule of universal harmony” (p. 1).
       While I was still in college, every spare minute I had was spent studying Christian Science. After my homework was done, I would study the Bible and Science and Health. During breaks at work, I would read testimonies of healing from The Christian Science Journal and Sentinel. I couldn’t get enough! During this time I also took Primary class instruction with a teacher of Christian Science. One day there was an opening in an office shared by several Christian Science practitioners. They needed someone to share the rent and take a shift in the office one morning a week. I felt that was my opening into the public practice of Christian Science and signed up. For over a year, no one called asking for my help, but I loved the quiet time studying Christian Science and growing in my confidence in God’s healing power.
       After college, I worked in sales full time, but always kept hours in that practitioner office. Gradually, calls for prayer came in, and healings resulted.
