FOR TEENS

THE EXAMPLE I LEAN ON

I had a healing when I was younger that happened just as I was really beginning to practice and understand Christian Science on my own. The healing is as important to me now as it was then.

When I was ten, I discovered a wart on one of my hands. As a kid who just wanted to have fun, I ignored it, assuming and hoping that it would vanish on its own. Months went by, though, and the wart was still there. My friends started noticing when more warts began appearing on my other fingers. I became so embarrassed that I finally gave up my ten-year-old pride and went to my mom. I sat on her bed and told her the bumps on my hands weren't going away, and together we decided to call a Christian Science practitioner. (My mom had actually noticed the issue earlier, and had been praying for me, and while she'd suggested before that I work with a practitioner, this was the first time I was really open to praying about it through Christian Science.)
