During Betty Carlson's youth, she spent time in post-WWII Europe, bouncing around from obsession to obsession—often on bicycle. At one point, she studied at the Conservatory of Music in Lausanne, Switzerland. Eventually, she wound up at L'Abri, where she was befriended by the Francis and Edith Schaeffer—and the experience was life-changing. In the early '70s, she wrote two books: The Unhurried Chase That Ended at L'Abri and Song from L'Abri, which describe her pilgrimage. Later, with Jane Stuart Smith, she co-authored Crossway's Great Christian Hymn Writers and The Gift of Music.
