Christian Science practitioner and teacher.

My first healing came as a teenager suffering from depression.  A pivotal point for me during that healing was realizing I was thinking too much about myself and not enough about God and helping others.  The desire to increasingly love God and others more has been a continuing foundation for my practice of Christian Science.

I became Journal-listed in 1985 and became an authorized teacher of Christian Science in 1988.

My background before being a Christian Science practitioner was in the technology world.  I worked on missile electronics in the military and then became a recording studio engineer.  My years preparing for the public healing practice were surrounded by children since my wife was a houseparent at a private school.  During this time, I had the rare privilege of teaching Sunday School five days a week to the same group of children each school year for over 10 years.  This is where I learned a lot more about the Bible!

After that, life got busy with the church headquarters:

  • conducting workshops to churches and college groups in the US in the mid-to-late 80’s
  • representing Christian Science to media and government at the state level in Illinois in the late 80’s to early 90’s
  • then in Washington, DC, managing the Church’s Federal Office in the 90’s
  • managing practitioner and nursing activities from 1998 to 2004
  • Superintendent of The Mother Church Sunday School from 2000 to 2001
  • serving as the Church spokesman and globally managing the church’s interests in media and lawmaking for six years until 2010.

Beyond the privilege of serving in these official positions, I cherish Mary Baker Eddy’s words “a real scientific healer is the highest position attainable…”  My practice, teaching, contributions in print and on the web are all dedicated to this purpose and goal.
