Growing up IN THE 90s

God hears you, too

The Christian Science Monitor

I was fourteen and played clarinet in our high-school band. That was fun. But there was a problem: a wart on the back of my right thumb made it awkward for me to hold up my clarinet. There were several other warts on both hands, but I remember the one in particular because it made playing my clarinet so hard.

Because I'd already had a number of healings through prayer, I'd been thinking about how Christian Science could help me solve this problem, too. One day while I was walking the two miles home from school, a thought came to me. God doesn't have warts!
