Her first book series, "Living Inside the Testimony" is a collection of inspirational nonfiction stories. Betty showcases her gift of storytelling by engulfing readers from the very beginning and captivating their attention throughout emotional journeys.

In her second book series, "The Birthday Gift", Betty displays her fictional storytelling in a surprisingly extraordinary way. She continues to inspire while lifting words right off the pages to bring her characters to life. Readers find themselves hoping for the best and dreaming about the characters as if they were members of their own family.

She uses her talent to introduce readers to the greatest gift ever given to mankind. While taking them on intriguing tales of heartbreak and hope, Betty intricately weaves together stories leaving readers in suspense until the very end. What they have in common is they all beautifully deliver the gospel message found in John 3:16.

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Living Inside The Testimony (3rd Edition) is a work of non-fiction in the Christian literature subgenre. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by author Betty Collier. The book sees the author candidly share the ups and downs of her life, showing how her faith in the Lord has guided her through the twists and turns of a life well lived. By approaching her life with gratitude for the things that God has given her, she has been able to survive the darker parts of life, and by sharing the experiences she gained along the way, the virtues of a life guided by faith become apparent.

I was delighted by this book; by the author, by the message, and by the way in which I was spoken to as an equal throughout. Author Betty Collier wisely avoids the pitfalls of a lot of religious literature by not trying to dispense ideology from a self-appointed position above the reader. Instead, she has written her story as one would speak to a friend or relative. The stories shared throughout the book are touching in nature, each one a personal anecdote shared with an admirable degree of openness to let the reader draw the parallels to their own life. The power of the text, however, comes from the insight the author shares in those stories, discussing how her faith elevated her even higher in moments of victory and saved her in moments of defeat. It is this insight that makes Living Inside The Testimony such an important read, and one that I recommend to all readers.
