She is married to Waylan, a former pastor and now the Dean of the Terry School of Church and Family Ministries at SWBTS. They have been blessed with four children, two boys and two girls, and three totally amazing grandchildren. Their eldest was born to them, and the youngest three they adopted from China. Betsy homeschooled all of them from K through high school graduation. In her spare time she enjoys drinking hot tea and reading, especially at the same time.
