Strong Women

Feb 16, 2022

Last week we talked with Carole Joy Seid about Ruth Bell Graham and this week when we hear the story of Edith Schaeffer, we will see some amazing parallels! Edith also grew up in China where her parents were missionaries. When Edith returned to the United States, she met the man she would marry, Francis Schaeffer. Together Edith and Francis started the ministry of L'Abri in Switzerland, a place where people journey to find honest answers to honest questions. L'Abri was filled with hospitality, art, and creativity because of Edith, and all the while she was writing many good books. Edith's life encourages us to pursue excellence and beauty.
