During high school, I'd been playing basketball a lot and sometimes had practices on Sunday mornings. It just felt like I didn't have much time to go to church. Being away from Sunday school, I kind of drifted away from praying about things. I had a lot going on and didn't even know if I wanted to be a Christian Scientist anymore. My friends didn't seem to understand what it was all about, and it was tough to feel different.
But last fall, when I was a senior, I'd been feeling more and more peace in my inner life after returning to Sunday School. And I'd been inspired to try to start reading the Bible all the way through, as well as Science and Health. I'd studied the 23rd Psalm, and there was one part I really liked: "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me" (verse 4). To me, that meant that when I'm afraid or worried, I can think of God's promise to be with me always. I also studied "the scientific statement of being" from Science and Health. It starts: "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all" (p. 468). I'd been learning that my life is spiritual, not based on material circumstances, and also how God is the only power.
