  3. thank you, dear Lois for your so very lovely lecture. I needed very much and I injoyed it!

  4. What a gift! Thank you.

  5. Thank you very much,life is all about sharing of love.thank God for the gift of LOVE

  6. Lois, your lecture was so wonderful, love-filled, easy to understand, fresh and joyous. Those attendees at the conference were deeply blessed, I’m sure. Thank you so much for all you are doing.

  7. WOW. Thank you so much, Lois. Can’t wait to share this.

  8. Thank you very much, Lois! That was so helpful.

  9. So fresh and natural and real. I loved every idea you shared, including the three overarching points and the different definitions of crucifixion and repentance. God sure knew what to say to you to wake you up from your “dreams” — and one time it was literally in a dream! Can’t wait to listen again so I can fully imbibe the message and then share appropriate parts with others.

  10. Cathy #1 – Thank you so much for asking the question about the picture cutting in and out. Now I know what to do, and was able to enjoy the rest of the talk after I “fixed” it.

    Lois, thank you so very much for the frankness that helps us to tackle the negatives in our life – by listening to God and coming out on the other side with joy, purpose, and love. Sometimes God speaks to us or gets our attention in rather odd ways when we are just too “into ourselves” to tune in to him. Once I was so upset I went for a walk, and a rabbit finally grabbed my attention. It stood up on its hind legs and stretched up high and just looked at me. My mind stopped whirling and I took in the beauty of the scene before me and let go of the frustration and confusion and returned to my children calm and undisturbed. I had gotten out of my “self box.” and saw that it really wasn’t all that bad..

  11. I loved the message that we are not doing ANYTHING by ourselves.

    Also good to know that God gives us time for our friends.

  12. Thank you for this beautiful lecture. There were so many points that jumped out to me to grab hold of. I feel inspired and love my life more than I did. Thank you again.

  13. The inspired thought which most stood out to me in this lecture was that our life purpose is too great to be preoccupied with the weaknesses of others. I know this will be helpful in continuing to work through a challenging relationship problem. I already see that the great weakness I am seeing in a family member is nothing but a blatant attempt of the carnal mind to distract me from fulfilling my life purpose glorifying God. Thank you for sharing this great message with such humility and love and joy!

  14. Thank you so much for sch a candid and joyful lecture. I had tears of joy and feel so much uplifted. Thank you for addressing the idea of how 'mortal mind' tries to get into our thinking and I loved the way you refuted this as ever possible because "Divine Mind" is our consciousness, our conscious thought. I loved the metaphore of the tree and it has reminded me to always be grounded and rooted in Love, Truth and Life.

  15. I really enjoyed that lecture. I am sitting at work and there are tears in my eyes. Such lovely examples of real life work in Christain Science and some beautiful understandings and teching of Mary Baker Eddys work.

  16. THANK GOODNESS for this lecture— as a recent college grad who is working through finding a job and purpose, this was a breath of fresh air. The ironing board analogy was perfect!

  17. Lois, Thank you for sharing these wonderful experiences and ideas. I will revisit this many times.

  18. Thanks very much for this lecture, Lois. It is helping me deal with the loss of my mother a few weeks ago....and the loss of my job last year when the state agency I worked for was very sudenly abolished by the governor. Yet we can still know that God is Life, and Life goes on...forever...for us all.

  19. Very nice Lois. I loved your talk. You have not changed much.
