Nona Lovell Brooks, described as a “prophet of modern mystical Christianity”, was a leader in the New Thought movement and a founder of the Church of Divine Science.
Brooks was born on March 22, 1861 in Louisville, Kentucky, the youngest daughter of Chauncey and Lavinia Brooks. At a fairly early age, her family moved just outside Charleston, West Virginia, where Brooks graduated from the Charleston Female Academy. Due to the collapse of her father’s salt mining business, the family moved again, this time to Pueblo, Colorado where he entered the metal mining business. He died shortly after the move, when Brooks was 19.
In 1887, encouraged by her sister, Althea Brooks Small, Nona Brooks attended classes taught by Kate Bingham, proponent of the New Thought philosophy. While attending these classes, Brooks “found herself healed of a persistent throat infection” and shortly thereafter Brooks and Small began to heal others.
NEW THOUGHT THINKERS’ NOTES: The Divine Science is not as well known as Religious Science of Mind. However, I think that you will find Brooks principles to be simple to follow and sometimes “simplicity” is the key.
