Out of the Flame:
One Woman’s Transformation from Trauma Survivor to Passionate Evangelist
As number five in a family of seven children, Betty (Elizabeth) was an adventurous and mischievous toddler. An early fascination with fire left her tottering between life and death. Facing a lifetime of medical interventions and adjustments, she soon learned that scars, pain, and loneliness would leave her longing for peace—something that seemed well out of reach. Regrettable choices that included abortion and a broken marriage resulted in a downward spiral of hopelessness, shame, depression, and attempted suicide. Even the fame and potential fortune of her #1 hit on the Country Music charts left her empty and searching. Her dramatic journey to the cross and the naiveté of her newly discovered walk with Jesus will leave you both laughing and crying. Betty’s story is one of God’s amazing redemptive plan that has taken her across the globe, behind prison bars, and into healing, favour, and victory.
“I have no doubt that Betty’s story of victory will inspire you to trust God and have faith for your miracle too. You will not want to put this book down until you have read it from cover to cover.”
Co-Founder of Crossroads & 100 Huntley Street
“An inspiring account of how a spiritual experience with God can turn a traumatized life completely around and lead that person into meaningful ministry, healthy marriage, and life of blessing and influence.”
