A member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship

Boise, Idaho USA — Josh has been actively serving others for much of his life, in things like tutoring, coaching, teaching Sunday School, as well as serving as an Officer in the Army and leading a platoon in Baghdad, Iraq. Since 2008, Josh has been dedicated to healing spiritually as a Christian Science practitioner and sharing with others this scientific prayer-based system of healing.

Josh says, “I love spending time in the mountains and on the rivers around Idaho, but there is nothing I would rather be doing than sharing Christian Science and its healing effect with people. Everyone has a right to feel God’s healing power and to be free from any limitations on health, happiness and their wellbeing.”

As a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship, Josh has shared the message of God’s healing and transforming love with diverse audiences in many parts of the world, discussing how to detect and overcome mental ambushes, shedding the burdensome weight of fear and doubt, as well as opening the doors to see the spiritual nature of life, health and prosperity.
