I still have my I.A.H. ring, which I wore for a number of years beginning in 1950. Each Sunday while attending Nazareth Lutheran Church Sunday School, I received a colorful booklet published by David C. Cook in Elgin, Illinois. This paper mentioned a special group called “The Charmed Life Circle” to which one could belong if one invited Jesus into their heart.
Well, I had invited Jesus into my heart when I was seven years old, and many times after that! So I sent away my request to join this club, and soon received a packet of papers to read. The pale green papers included many Bible verses explaining how to live faithfully for Jesus. After reading through this material, I signed my promise to live always for Jesus first, and sent the papers back.
Soon I received a little package in the mail with my precious silver IAH ring enclosed. Words and prayers for a little ceremony were included, which I read and prayed as I put the ring on my finger, repeating the deeply felt words, “I Am His”. I knew that Jesus was with me always, as I was reminded every morning when I felt the ring on my finger.
