Meet our Christian Science Nurse
Paula Brensinger, a fourth generation Christian Scientist, is our full-time visiting Christian Science nurse now joined by visiting Christian Science nurse, Michelle Ponder, who is on duty two days a week. We are very grateful! You will be reading more about Michelle soon.
Paula grew up in Massachusetts, and moved to New Hampshire in 1998 with her husband, Glenn, where they now live in Newport. She took her training at Chestnut Hill Benevolent Association and graduated in May of 2015. She remained on the Christian Science nursing staff there until August 2016.
For five years, Paula divided her time between her New Hampshire home and Chestnut Hill BA, until she was called to serve in the New Hampshire field.
Of this opportunity, she says, “I look forward to supporting my fellow man relying on Christian Science for healing in the private sanctuary of home, where the pilgrim can find heaven and the stranger discovers they are the guest of God.”
You, your practitioner, or a family member or friend, are always welcome to call Paula and Michelle to discuss and arrange for the appropriate care to meet your need.
When you reach the Christian Science nurse, you just need to explain your situation and a visit will be arranged. If for some reason you will need to leave a message your call will be returned just as soon as possible.
If, after consultation, more care is needed than can be provided by the Service, patients may be referred to a private duty Christian Science nurse, Tallwood House in Concord, NH, or to the Chestnut Hill Benevolent Association.
