H. Emilie Cady (1848-1941) was an American homeopathic physician and author of New Thought spiritual writings.[1] Her 1896 book Lessons in Truth, A Course of Twelve Lessons in Practical Christianity is now considered the core text on Unity Church teachings.[2] It is the most widely read book in that movement, and has sold over 1.6 million copies since its first publication.[1]

Born in 1848 in Dryden, New York to Oliver and Cornelia Cady,[3] Cady's first job was as a schoolteacher in a one-room schoolhouse in her hometown. In the late 1860s, however, she decided to pursue the field of medicine, and enrolled in the Homeopathic College of New York City,[4] graduating in 1871, and becoming one of the first woman physicians in America.[5]

Introduced to the teachings of Albert Benjamin Simpson, Cady became deeply involved in spiritual and metaphysical studies. She was inspired and influenced by Biblical teachings and the philosophy of Ralph Waldo Emerson. She was taught by Emma Hopkins, the New Thought "teacher of teachers".[6]

Cady also associated with several prominent figures in the New Thought movement of the time, including: Emma Curtis Hopkins, Divine Science minister Emmet Fox, Ernest Holmes, founder of Religious Science, and Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, co-founders of Unity Church.[2] Finding The Christ in Ourselves, a pamphlet she had written and sent unsolicited to Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, was published by them in the October 1891 issue of Thought.
