Mary Baker Eddy

Mary Baker Eddy considered herself a spiritual pioneer whose work encompassed the disciplines of science, theology, and medicine. After her discovery of God’s laws as powerful spiritual mandates, always present and operating to heal, redeem, and bless humanity, she devoted her life to practicing, teaching, and sharing this healing Science of Christianity.
