Tackling Global Issues, With PrayerEmily Faulkner shared an article on the Christian Science Sentinel website titled, Tackling global issues –  with prayer. The article discusses the power of prayer:

Emily Faulkner, a global studies major, lives at a unique intersection of thought. On the one hand, her major has exposed her to an in-depth analysis of some of the most pressing issues facing our planet. On the other, her study and practice of Christian Science have taught her that the most effective problem-solving doesn’t begin with a deep dive into the problem but with a solid understanding of God and God’s goodness—which in turn can bring healing. The Sentinel’s Jenny Sawyer sat down with Emily to talk about how it’s possible to stay informed about global issues and still pray about them effectively…

God’s goodness dispels the darkness

My article published in the Christian Science Monitor: In my late 30s, my mother and my mother-in-law, both cherished people in my life, passed away within days of each other.
