Welcome to the Willows!
Home is the dearest spot on earth… (Science and Health 58:21)
Mary Baker Eddy wrote these words with deep spiritual conviction, possibly because she moved many times during a certain period in her life. Mrs. Eddy saw that home was an expression of the Love that we all can experience by looking to God as our Father-Mother, the great Giver of all good.
