My healing at summer camp
I was having an awesome time at a camp for Christian Scientists. I loved all the activities and was having a great time hanging out with my friends. But one day, out of nowhere, I started dealing with stomachaches, which seemed to get worse after every meal.
I was raised in Christian Science, and so it was natural for me to turn to Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy for help, because it’s a textbook on healing. I began to pray with ideas from passages that had been helpful to me during previous healings. Although the ideas were comforting, I was still struggling with stomach pain.
At that point, I decided to ask for help from a Christian Science practitioner. She shared wonderful ideas and we prayed together, but I still didn’t feel better. I also started feeling worried about every meal because it was hard not to expect that I wouldn’t feel well after eating.
