A guest post written by Jodie Fisher from Rancho Santa Fe, California

I was hesitant to attend my college reunion recently, but decided I should go with the purpose of blessing others. It’s always fun to connect with college friends and meet new people, and after being there for a short time, I realized that I was embraced in a feeling of love that was much more than a mere social occasion would normally give.Continue Reading

A guest post written by Kathleen Osborne from Riverside, California

The other day a headline in the Wall Street Journal caught my attention. In super-large type it read “Speak No Evil.” The article itself was about how to give a speech, but it got me thinking about the adage, “See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” and how this might relate to health and harmony.Continue Reading

I have often pondered the importance of understanding health and how it is best achieved. Most health-conscious adults approach health by focusing on diet, physical exercise, sleep, medicine, and emotional well-being. All these factors are significant, but so far they have not solved the problem of healing disease.Continue Reading

Recently I started feeling very depressed and lonely and I just couldn’t seem to shake the horrible feeling. I didn’t feel like doing anything and I’ve always been a very active, happy person. I wondered if this was what depression felt like, and suddenly understood what I’d heard much talk about.Continue Reading

I still laugh when I think about the time I offered to help my son solder an electrical connection. I grabbed my solder pencil and solder and went to work. After trying for some time, I just couldn’t get the connection made. So I grabbed my bigger solder gun – figuring bigger was better – and gave it another go.Continue Reading

A guest post written by Cricket Twichell from Ojai, California

A recent crossword puzzle in the Los Angeles Times featured several words for “rubbish” such as horsefeathers, poppycock, hogwash, twaddle, and balderdash. As I chewed on the eraser while figuring out the answers, I thought about these somewhat old-fashioned words – colorfully denoting ideas or concepts that have no validity and deserve to be trashed.Continue Reading

A guest post written by Curtis Wahlberg from Lake Forest, California

One day I happened to look online on the subject of self-fulfilling prophecies and I came across a number of articles and studies by physicians, psychologists, and criminologists that indicated that an expectation of problems, including alcoholism, obesity, dumb-jock-personality, and crime, supported incidences of these problems.

Recently I signed up for morning aqua aerobics classes. I showed up one sunny morning to find a group of “early senior” to “late senior” ladies already bobbing in the clear water.

Really? Do I belong in this group?Continue Reading

A guest post written by Noie LaRue from Newport Beach, California

I’ve found infinite opportunities to view the word through an inspired, spiritual lens as taught in the Bible and in Science and Health, written by spiritual seeker Mary Baker Eddy. I don’t try to put spiritual qualities into material things or view God as manipulating matter. Continue Reading

A guest post written by Kathy Schofield from Los Angeles, California

“I can make myself sick!” You probably haven’t heard that statement too many times. In Sunday School, my ninth-grade students and I were discussing health and sickness – cause and effect – and how the teachings of Christian Science, as lived by Christ Jesus and proved in his healing works, were effective in healing sickness.
