Powerful is The Light

Practical Lessons in the Story of Nona Brooks and Divine Science
Your Personal and Impersonal Power

The words I say to you I do not speak on my own authority. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the works themselves. Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these…

~John 14:10-12 (NIV)



Not until we hold ourselves individually as divine Being can we solve the problems of life satisfactorily…

~Nona Brooks

One Monday afternoon in 1887, in the town of Pueblo, Colorado, two very skeptical sisters, Nona Brooks and Alethea Brooks, attended another of the classes they’d been taking about spiritual healing and the Omnipresence of God.

Nona had been suffering from mysterious and debilitating throat ulcers for years, and her condition was steadily getting worse. In fact, because she could not eat solid food without enduring severe pain, she was slowly but surely starving to death. During that class, Nona had a “numinous” experience and was completely enveloped in a brilliant white light. It was her second such experience since childhood.

When the light subsided, Nona discovered she had been instantly and completely healed of the terminal throat ulcers her medical doctor had finally given up on.

Nona Brooks spent the rest of her life learning, practicing and teaching the spiritual science behind her healing experience, and helped many, many others achieve excellent results. The teaching she helped nurture into historic success is called Divine Science. It was the first church in the New Thought movement, which also gave rise to Unity, Religious Science and others.

The story of Nona’s life, and her leading role in the growth of Divine Science is documented in the book, Powerful is The Light by Hazel Deane. But more than a biography of a remarkable woman on a remarkable spiritual journey, this profound book serves as a handbook for the step-by-step practice of the Divine Science methods for curing illness and changing lives for the better.

This class explores that simple, sacred approach to healing, and the attendant rise in consciousness that has helped so many people achieve powerful results in the improvement of their lives.

It’s a wonderful introduction to Divine Science and its methods for embodying the Omnipresence of God in a deeply personal way. Follow these universal spiritual principles and watch your life improve in every way.
