Born in Auburn Maine on July 21, 1927, Betty Elaine Williams was raised by a single mom during the Great Depression. She married in her 20’s and joined her husband in missionary service in Brazil for twenty years.
Always capable of teaching those around her, she developed that gift into a thriving professional life. She taught thousands of students both young and old, in Brazil and across America. Her family changed with her divorce, then grew again when she adopted three more children as a later-life, single mother with a teaching career.
Betty once again resides in Auburn, Maine. Thanks to her youngest daughter, she texts on her cellular phone, has a Facebook account, and still loves a good game of Scrabble.
This fascinating autobiography introduces a woman who was born into poverty in Auburn, Maine, and who followed her faith—-and her teenage husband—-into mission work in Brazil. Though often sorely tested, Betty’s faith and remarkable sense of humor remained strong through a fascinating life spent helping children and raising two families of her own. This edition includes Betty's poetry as well.
