Teachings from the “Mother of Unity,” Myrtle Fillmore

Does the idea of praying yourself well seem impossible? Myrtle Fillmore, cofounder of Unity, knew she could heal herself—and she did. Her intense healing experience has been an inspiration to people around the world and is the cornerstone of how Unity began more than 100 years ago.

Myrtle was sickly as a child and a young adult suffering from tuberculosis. After attending a New Thought lecture in 1886, Myrtle came away with one statement that changed her life: I am a child of God, and therefore I do not inherit sickness.
