      • How Jesus Helps by Allen Watson. How Jesus, in A Course in Miracles, offers to help us yet a little more if we accept his presence in our lives.

      Photo of Allen Welcome! My passion over the years has been writing commentary on various sections in the Course, especially Workbook lessons and Text sections. This grew out of my days of Bible teaching. I found that if I could share what I gained from a certaian Course passage, others could share in whatever clarity and enthusiasm I experienced.
