First Church of Christ, Scientist, Bozeman

Four Generations of Healing and Prayer for Family and Pets

Both sides of my family have been Christian Scientists for four generations. My mother’s grandmother was healed through Christian Science of a kidney disease pronounced terminal by a doctor, and after that she enrolled her children in the Christian Science Sunday School and began attending the church herself. One of my father’s grandmothers was also healed of a serious disease, which brought his family into Christian Science. We’ve witnessed many healings through turning to God in prayer in my family. When I was a child, I remember having the mumps and seeing the symptoms disappear in a couple hours as my parents and I prayed. As an adult, I’ve experienced instantaneous healings of colds and flu—the symptoms immediately vanished when I prayed. Appendicitis, a skiing knee injury, relationship problems, employment issues, and being lost in the Absoraka-Beartooth Wilderness are among other healing experiences I’ve had. Relying on God for health and guidance has blessed me in so many ways, including a lot of spiritual growth!


Some of my favorite healing experiences involved my first dog, Kindle. This is one of many: I went hiking with a friend in the Bridgers. As we hiked toward Ross Peak, Kindle heard distant gunfire and went to hide in dense bushes. We called and waited, but she wouldn’t come out. I finally suggested we keep walking, that she would either follow or hunker down till we returned. After the hike when we returned to the same spot and when I called her, she popped out immediately to join us. She was holding her head peculiarly, and when I looked I saw a singed spot. There had been some dirt bikes roaring by, and it occurred to me she’d had a run in with one and been hit by the hot tailpipe. I prayed, she was soon comfortable and moving normally again, and I didn’t think any more about it until a month later I looked at her and it appeared as if one side of the top of her head was partly caved in, and the eye on that side looked sunken in its socket. When friends noticed, they were freaked out and begged me to take her to a veterinarian. I finally did, so they’d stop being afraid for her and to find out what I was dealing with.

The vet said there was no treatment – that nerve damage had caused the muscles on that part of her skull to atrophy and that’s why it looked caved in. She explained nerve damage was permanent. She looked at me oddly when I grinned, so I quickly explained I’d be praying for my dog, and I didn’t view the situation as irreversible. It shouldn’t take knowing there’s no medical solution to throw yourself utterly into prayer, but I was pleased not to have to weigh any choices. I called a practitioner, someone who is in the full-time practice of Christian Science healing, and asked her to pray for Kindle. I continued praying myself as well, and stopped looking at Kindle’s head so her odd appearance wouldn’t distract me from seeing her as God did. A couple evenings later I was lying on the couch and she came over and gave my face a little lick. She had never done that before unless she was asking for something. This time I had the distinct sense she was saying thank you. I met her eyes and saw her head was totally back to normal.
