about

As number five in a family of seven children, Betty (Elizabeth) was an adventurous and mischievous toddler. An early fascination with fire left her tottering between life and death. Facing a lifetime of medical interventions and adjustments, she soon learned that scars, pain, and loneliness would leave her longing for peace—something that seemed well out of reach. Regrettable choices that included abortion and a broken marriage resulted in a downward spiral of hopelessness, shame, depression, and attempted suicide. Even the fame and potential fortune of her #1 hit on the Country Music charts left her empty and searching. Her dramatic journey to the cross and the naiveté of her newly discovered walk with Jesus will leave you both laughing and crying. Betty’s story is one of God’s amazing redemptive plan that has taken her across the globe, behind prison bars, and into healing, favour, and victory.

Editorial Reviews

Through her numerous appearances on 100 Huntley Street, Betty Chisholm’s miracle storyhas blessed and inspired many. David and I were moved to tears as she recounted God’s incrediblepower and tender mercy. I have no doubt that her story of victory will inspire you to trust God andhave faith for your miracle too. You will not want to put this book down until you have read it fromcover to cover.—Norma-Jean Mainse Co-Founder of Crossroads and 100 Huntley Street, Burlington, ONAs a young girl, Betty Chisholm played with fire and as a result almost lost her life. She had tobattle for her life with the aid of doctors and nurses and most of all, the power of prayer. Years later,having fought through depression, abortion, and attempted suicide, Betty’s voice would sing andpreach for the Glory of God. Together with her husband John, Betty has reached many hundreds ofprison inmates who needed to know of the love of Jesus. The fight for her life was also the fight for thesouls of those who would hear the Good News of Jesus through Betty’s faithful witness. Out of theFlame is a compelling testimony of how God can take what the devil intended for harm and work it forgood.—Rev. Matt TapleyLead Pastor, Lakemount Worship Centre, Grimsby, ONBetty’s biography is an inspiring account of how a spiritual experience with God can turn atraumatized life completely around, leading to meaningful ministry, a healthy marriage, and a life ofblessing and influence. This personal story will touch you deeply and encourage you to realize that theGod who formed you in your mother's womb is waiting for your moment of encounter with Him. I wasblessed to meet Betty and hear her life testimony while I was behind bars during her music andministry tour. Her story encouraged me in my spiritual walk with the Lord, and I know it will stir youto grow and spread the Good News to others.—Jim Cavanagh Author of Captured to Run No MorePrison Fellowship Field Director (Retired), Kingston, ONBetty’s noble rendering of her life story is a great source of inner strength for those who, with alittle more push and encouragement, can still discover a path to victory that no one knew was there.From start to finish, you will discover a story that eclipses pain and delivers inspiration.—Dr. Y.D. JeyaseelanNational Leader, Victory Churches of India, New Delhi, IndiaOut of the Flame is very appropriately titled. Betty has truly been “tried by the fire and hascome forth as gold” (Job 23:10, paraphrased). I like her transparency and approachability. For anyreader wrestling with the adversities of life and questioning God, Out of the Flame may be justfor you. —Jim Cantelon Founder/President, wowmission.com Host of Jim Cantelon Today TV, jimcantelontoday.com
