    Happy Monday ladies! We are ready chapters 1-3 this week 😊

    Edith Schaeffer was born in 1914 to missionary parents in China. She met her husband, Francis, at Beaver College in Pennsylvania and they married in 1935. After Francis attended Westminster Theological Seminary, the couple were sent to Switzerland as missionaries in 1948. In 1955 they left their mission organization and opened their home as a place to share the gospel and love people. They named it L’Abri, meaning “shelter”. Edith wrote and co-wrote twenty books throughout her life. Edith went to be with the Lord in 2013 at the age of 98.

    “She taught me about the beauty of home and family. She modeled the wonderful and powerful virtues of Christian hospitality.” -Tim Challie’s’ mother who visited L’Abri with her husband soon after their conversion.

    This info was found on Tim Challies’ website.
