I am fourteen years old

I am fourteen years old. I was born and raised in Christian Science. I would like to share an experience I had two summers ago.

I was on a high school baseball team. One night while playing in a baseball game, I was struck in the face with a hard ball. The coach took me off the field and laid me on the ground. He thought that perhaps I might have a broken nose. Right away I started to declare the truth to myself as we are taught in Christian Science, I knew that I was a child of God and that I could not be hurt. They wanted to take me to a doctor, but I thanked them and told them I would wait for my mom and dad to get there. When my parents got there, my mom thanked the coach for his concern, and they took me home.
