Christian Science found me twice

I grew up in a religious family, regularly attending a Baptist church. Palm Sunday, the Sunday before Easter, was special and memorable as the children carried palms down the center aisle. I loved and studied the Bible regularly, and as a teenager, taught Sunday School.

Christian Science first found me when I was fifteen and studying ballet at a ballet studio. At this time, I was also working in a dancewear store owned and operated by a husband and wife. The wife worked in the store, and one day when we were working together, I remember noticing a Bible and another book with metal markers. Curious, I asked her about them, and she explained that she was a Christian Scientist and that these were the two books (the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy) she used to study the weekly Bible Lesson found in the Christian Science Quarterly. She showed me how to mark passages in both books and use the metal markers to indicate the pages.
