A spiritual transformation that even amazed the State of California [Video]

If you like “transformation” stories you’ll like this video.

In particular it’s the spiritual shift that causes an “impossible” outcome that you really want to notice.

We don’t use the word “impossible” in any light way to describe the ending. Historically speaking this is an ending to a story that NEVER happens. And these are the sentiments expressed by the judicial system of the State of California.

Briefly these are the themes involved:

  • Drugs.
  • Alcohol.
  • Depression.
  • Suicidal urges.
  • A violent disposition.
  • Physically dangerous to others.
  • Someone to be avoided.
  • Even on the inside.
  • Disowned by her family.
  • Facing 54 years of prison time.
  • Not much going right.

Until she crosses paths with a God who mends broken lives.

And Chaplain Cindy.

A sweet, gentle Christian Science Chaplain.

    Cindy, I love how this woman shared that she saw the spiritual transformation of other women around her who were also sharing this testimony in being women of faith- “whatever blesses one blesses all.”
    God is blessing you and all whom you touch in your prayer-filled ministry.
    Thank you!

    Thanks, Cindy, for sharing this lovely experience. How amazing and humbling it is to be a part of the healing transformation in the lives of others, especially in the correctional facilities. God bless you.

    Whether our ‘prison’ has walls, bars or mental and physical barriers, we can be “restored: returned to our original” with the right structure of thought to sweep away the “belief systems” that bind. Thank you so much Cindy for all that you are doing to sweep away the barriers to our right Identity. God Bless. <3

    Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful story. It inspires me in my own prison work.
    One little thing, in future, if the setting is outside, the camera person should ask the subject to remove his/her glasses as the reflected light in them hid Cindy’s beautiful eyes and all you could see was the camera person reflected in her glasses.

      Thanks for the heads-up Susan! I’ll definitely pay attention to “glare” and “camera-man mirroring” in the future.

    I met this inmate when I first started as a Chaplain’s Assistant at this prison. I found her filled with joy, humor, energy, and boundless gratitude to God and to the genuine, loving, steadfast support of Chaplain Cindy. Her growth in Spirit inspired me! I loved hearing this – thank you, Cindy!

    Thank you, Cindy. I think Mrs. Eddy would be very pleased with this healing work!
    There’s nothing more important going on in the world!

    How inspiring and moving! I love these monthly videos. They are EVIDENCE of God’s power, grace, and LOVE. Thank you, Cindy, and all those working as chaplains — following in the footsteps of the Master Christian, Christ Jesus — and in Mary Baker Eddy’s footsteps also — as the discoverer of the underlying Science of Jesus’s healings and teachings — giving them to the world in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures so that we may all “go and do likewise.”
