Healed of hopelessness
High school was drawing to a close, and I was very unhappy. I didn’t have any real goals or plans beyond graduation. Feeling depressed, I even contemplated suicide.
I had grown up attending Christian Science Sunday School, but I had stopped going. The future seemed bleak, and I felt hopeless. At the same time, a growth appeared on one finger.

My family saw my struggles, and my mom eventually asked me if I’d be willing to talk to a Christian Science practitioner—someone who helps others find healing through prayer.
