If you would like to submit a longer testimony, please email us at with “Thanksgiving” as the subject!

If you would like to share your own experience as a Christian Scientist, we would love to hear from you. Whether your story of evolving personally, suffering, breaking free, or finding a new path, we want to give you a platform to be heard and supported.

If you need a writing prompt or inspiration we have a list of writing prompts!
