Betty Carlson couldn’t decide what she wanted in life.

She bicycled around Europe after World War II, attempting to find herself. As she traveled, she jumped from one obsession to the next.

Finally, a friend invited her to the home of Francis and Edith Schaeffer. They had opened a ministry in their home called L’abri to counteract the liberal theology sweeping the world at the time.

In the Schaeffer’s home, Betty discovered answers to life’s dilemmas in Christ. She could ask questions and receive honest answers. Plus, God’s love abounded. Based on what she learned, Betty devoted her life to helping others. She wrote many books and penned a syndicated article in the “Rockford Morning Star” in the 1960s.

The Schaeffers touched many lives as they combined hospitality and faith.

“Show hospitality to one another without grumbling.” -1 Peter 4:9
