Wheatmark, June 15, 2010
This is a memoir. Upon reflection, a haphazard upbringing, with its diverse locations and vocations, brought Betty Undlin to an age where she could consider what had mattered and why, what had made her laugh and what had made her cry. In the process, she realized that, in her case, challenging life changes appeared in twenty-year segments. Whereas the general concept of life is that everything tapers off at about 60, she has not found that to be true. Betty believes that if you refuse to limit yourself to your calendar age, 60 - 80 can even be the best!
Undlinís memoir will keep you entertained as you work your way through her most significant events. More than that, it will remind you that life begins at any age you like!
About the Author
Betty Undlin is a product of Texas and the Bay Area of California. After college, she joined the Foreign Service of the State Department and was sent to Sao Paulo, Brazil. There, she met her husband, Russell. When they returned to the States, Russell continued his career in foreign trade. Russ and Betty traveled abroad extensively, then bought a manufacturing business in Cincinnati, Ohio. They were active in that business until their retirement in 1990.
After a 6-month unexpected assignment in Mozambique, they settled wholeheartedly into prison ministry. Russ developed an aftercare ministry for Christian men coming out of prison, and Betty taught the Bible in prisons throughout Arizona. These activities culminated in 2003 with the opening of The Bridge, a Christian halfway house. The Bridge opened in February of 2003. In August of 2003, Russ died suddenly. Since that time, Betty has continued to manage The Bridge, with its ever-changing group of "sons."
