A deeper understanding

When I was 16, I had a couple of different healings that deepened my understanding of Christian Science. The first happened toward the end of my junior spring, during softball season. 

One day while we were doing a throwing drill, I turned away from the field to listen to one of my coaches. A teammate had thrown the ball to me, a hard line from first base to left field. She shouted at me, and I turned around just in time to “catch” the ball with my face.

It had been a hard, fast throw, and my team rushed over, worried that I had been hurt. I asked if I could go to the locker room. I appreciated the team’s concern, but I knew that I didn’t want to let their fear affect me. So I wanted to get my thoughts in order.
