The ride of my life

From the teen series: Turning Point - April 26, 2016

It was a horse that helped me make Christian Science truly “my own.”

I was fourteen. I’d been attending the Christian Science Sunday School since I was six and had had many healings. But my parents had always taken the lead. I’d never been asked to call a practitioner on my own or to treat a situation as “mine” to pray about.

Then came the news that I needed to sell my horse. My family was struggling financially, and the neighborhood stable was closing. Also, because I was starting high school in the fall, I wouldn’t have much time for my equine friend. I accepted why I needed to sell my horse; I just wasn’t prepared for the “how.”
