    Doris has been writing since the age of ten, (mainly songs), like her father. She has been noted as a very gifted, prolific Gospel writer of the present generation. Her music has been presented in the Gospel Music Workshops of America; the selection “Stop By Lord” by GIA publishing of Chicago, Ill., (, by Dr. James Abbington. Her music has been taught in years past in Seminary at Emory University of Atlanta, Ga., by Dr. Marion E. Dolan. One selection, “New Heaven” was featured in a 2003 documentary of Whitney Houston’s baptismal in the Jordan River, as the background music, sung by the New Jerusalem’s Fire Choir of Israel. Other selections have been taught sang in South America, England, and Australia by Mrs. Yvonne Reed Matthews, a childhood friend since first grade.

    This is the author’s first book of poetry; selections in this book have been carefully selected with the reading audience in mind. There is something in the book for everyone. Mrs. Bettis has often had to battle thoughts of loneliness and depression. She writes about life as she sees it, experiences it, and lives it, in Echoes of Silence.

    Mrs. Bettis serves as the founding Pastor of the Blood Covenant Evangelistic Church Inc., along with her husband, and has been in music ministry for over thirty years. She loves to sing, write, and sew.

    Recently touched by the death of her daughter’s boyfriend Kendal, Doris was moved to write the poem “KendaLeigh”, entitled in honor of her unborn granddaughter. It’s all in the book.
