Enriching the Understanding

Our Mission

     Many have asked the question "Isn't Longyear already doing this?" Longyear's mission focuses on Mary Baker Eddy and the early workers who knew the Discoverer of Christian Science personally. Today, we believe it's time to expand the history of Christian Science into the next generation of workers.

     These workers carried the Movement forward with their dedication, their love for Mrs. Eddy, and their steadfastness, which was so needed in their day.  They have some amazing stories to tell that are heartwarming and surprising. 

      We think you'll enjoy learning about them just as much as we've loved researching their lives and speaking with those who knew them.
