At 85-year-old, Betty Alexander of South Bend, Indiana, is making headlines! She broke her hip almost four months ago and needed something to do while healing. She had watched her mom make quilts when she was a child and has made quilts for all of her kids and grandkids. After her injury, she started making a quilt for a queen-sized bed that includes an American flag.
Betty said, “When I was thinking, ‘Who is this quilt going to be for,’ the Holy Spirit just told me it should be for President Trump.”
Betty is a truly an inspiration. Her dedication and patriotism is getting noticed through the media while she is trying to figure out how to get the American flag quilt to President Trump. Chances are the President now knows her name. And it won’t be surprising if she has a free trip to the White House.
Betty has been very active her whole life. She attended Bible School and graduated when she was 68-years-old. And she goes to the gym three times a week. But when the doctors told her how long her recovery would be, she said, “I’m a busy lady…I’m not going to sit around and think about things all day. What I can do, I am going to do.”
She is well-known, serving selflessly in her community for many years. She is a foster grandparent for a non-profit called REAL services and tutoring at-risk youth. She has also volunteered for up to 20 hours of service a week at day-care centers. But that’s not all of it! She has been a counselor to many people and still officiates weddings and funerals. She has said, “Helping others is like medicine to the heart.”
