Discover - Get Inspired - Change Perspective
Melanie loves working from her home office in the Los Angeles area. She likes to see lives transformed by the healing ideas of Christian Science, where we ourselves are helped and, at the same time, find we can help others. Her life as a mom has a lot of the same focus. And whether the spiritual ideas apply to health issues, school, social lives, or sports, their three teenagers push her to “keep it real.”
In the middle of difficult circumstances, it would be so reassuring to feel supported in our efforts for progress, instead of feeling alone. In this talk, Melanie discusses what she’s found helpful in her practice of Christian Science healing: that God loves us deeply, is an active presence of good in our lives, and provides fresh ideas about our spiritual nature that wipe away fear and reveal inspired solutions.
By turning to God for help, we open up to divine ideas and feel the pres-ence of God in tangible ways, ways that change our lives and our health for the better. She calls this healing.
During the talk, Melanie will explore God as Spirit, Love, and Mind, rather than as a man-like figure making arbitrary decisions about our lives. This divine Mind is the one source of all good and true ideas. So God’s thoughts remind us of our spiritual identity, guide us to express more love, and show us our divine intelligence.
She will talk about Christ Jesus’ teachings in the Bible as being the best example of how to heal by listening to these ideas. And she delves into Mary Baker Eddy’s book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, as the explanation of Christian Science healing based on Christ Jesus’ life. Melanie will give examples of how this healing approach has trans-formed lives, including a mother and her infant daughter who experienced physical healing. The mother said, “It felt like the ideas themselves did the work.”
