My first Christian Science healing on my own

When I was eleven and a Christian Science Sunday School student, I had a healing experience that was like riding a two-wheel bicycle for the first time. It was then that I began to know Christian Science in my heart and not just as the words I would hear from my parents. 

I was on a camping trip at a summer camp for Christian Science youth. As one of the coordinators of the trip, I was responsible for helping to organize the younger boys’ activities and equipment as well as for preparing their meals. I had chosen to take on this responsibility, and I was ready to learn from anything that came up during the overnight trip.

During breakfast the morning we were to return, I was cooking bacon and pancakes in a cast-iron skillet. As I prepared enough bacon to feed a dozen hungry boys, the grease started to build up in the pan. When I was pouring out the grease into another container, I lost my steady grip on the skillet, first spilling some grease, then launching the rest into the air as I lifted the skillet up again. Hot grease landed on my hand and wrist, and the pain was severe.
