I Was introduced to Christian Science by way of a bumblebee

I Was introduced to Christian Science by way of a bumblebee. I was a child at the time, and the bee stung me right behind the ear. Because I was terrified and in pain, I ran to my mother. She was talking to a stranger, who happened to be a Christian Science practitioner. The practitioner put her arm around me and told me things that I had not heard before. She spoke of God loving me, of my true being as His perfect idea, and of the fact that His creatures cannot cause harm. The help I received from the practitioner was much more effective than the medical aids to which I had been accustomed, and the hurt and fright were quickly gone.

With this healing my life began to change. The experience left me with a love and respect for God as an ever-present power. My parents enrolled me in a Christian Science Sunday School, and I loved the instruction I received there.
