Many great thinkers in the world have helped me face my fears and take on life’s challenges. One thing leads to another and I found myself unearthing what is referred to as Christian Science. It’s principles have been advanced forever, and more specifically by a 19th century woman, Mary Baker Eddy, a woman nearly forgotten today.
Because spiritual enlightenment keeps these principles alive, I’ve learned of mental cause and effect. I’ve experienced mind power and its benefits to humanity. For more than half a century. In that time, I had a public practice offering spiritual healing and wrote books. Even when times feel crummy, the Holy Spirit doesn’t fail but urges me gently to discover an infinite intelligence that embraces people around the world, in their own languages, circumstances, and histories.
My books (click titles for link):
