Betty readily accepted the gospel into her life. Joel baptized her and her children in 1961. Shortly after, Betty gave birth to Storm. Betty and Joel ran the Daniel Trading Company in Daniel for more than 10 years. They were known best for their quality meat they sold around the world.

Betty had many church callings throughout her life. Betty and Joel served two fulltime missions for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The first one was in Canada, and the second one was in the Philippines. In 1998, they moved to Vernal, Utah so they could work in the Vernal
