“O Lord! I am single, alone and lowly.
For me there is no support save Thee, no helper
except Thee and no sustainer beside Thee.”

An uplifting memoir about relying on God and carrying the light of one’s faith into the world.

Single, Alone, and Lowly, by Bernice L. Muir, is the story of one woman’s unwavering faith as she travelled life’s journey – a journey that took her from a small town in British Columbia, Canada, to the Canadian Arctic, to several other communities in Canada, to East Africa, to Israel, and back to a small town in British Columbia. This memoir also touches on the impact of mental illness in a family and the challenges faced by women in science in the 1960s.

From the time she was a child growing up in a small town in British Columbia in the 1940s and ’50s, Bernice Muir had a strong faith in God and felt a sense of being guided. In the 1960s, after training at Vancouver General Hospital, Bernice worked as a nurse in Powell River, B.C., and in the Canadian Arctic. Later she earned a B.Sc. Honours in Biochemistry and an M.Sc. in Biology from the University of British Columbia. Muir taught at several post-secondary institutions in Canada and wrote two textbooks. She learned about the Bahá’í Faith from a student and became a Bahá’í in 1976 while teaching at Cariboo College in Kamloops, B.C. Muir served the Bahá’í Faith in various capacities in several communities in Canada and in Tanzania, and she also served as a volunteer at the Bahá’í World Centre in Haifa, Israel. She currently resides in Comox, B.C., where she continues to be actively involved in the Bahá’í community.
