Discovering Ever Present Love–
Active in Your Life
by Janet Hegarty, CSB
From Janet Hegarty, CSB
What I love about Christian Science is the way it answers pressing questions that come to all of us. Questions like Who am I? Why am I here? How can I find health and happiness? These questions were uppermost in my thought as I entered college. As an undergraduate, I studied music composition at Washington University in St. Louis. Then, I moved to Chicago, where I earned a master’s degree in music. At about the same time, I was introduced to Christian Science and began finding the answers to my questions about identity, purpose, and health. This has made a huge difference in my life.
For the next several years, I composed and produced original music for theatre productions and film. Later, my husband, Jim, and I had a music production company, producing music for radio, television, and other media.
Throughout this time, I continued to apply the spiritual ideas I was learning to every facet of my life. My growing understanding of the way Christian Science explains existence took the mystery out of living and removed much fear. This new light so changed my life that it stirred in me a desire to help others find spiritual answers. I then left the music business to enter the full-time Christian Science healing practice, and later I became a Christian Science teacher.
My life has been transformed from living in fear for my health and uncertainty about the future to feeling secure in the spiritual basis for health and having a joyous expectation of good in the future. This transformation showed me the life-changing power of God’s goodness and the healing that results from understanding our oneness with God. These ideas have been useful to me in my healing work, and I love sharing them in my prison ministry, with interfaith groups, and in the public talks I give on Christian Science.
