Believing in Each Other

  By Steve Stevens 

In 1910 DeWitt Wallace developed a new idea for a
magazine. It would consist of a collection of condensed
articles. He put together a proposed sample and sent it
to publishers throughout the country. Nobody seemed
interested. DeWitt was terribly discouraged.

About the same time he met Lila Bell Acheson, the
daughter of a Presbyterian minister. Before long the
two fell in love. Lila believed in DeWitt's dream. She
wouldn't let him give up and encouraged him to keep
trying his wonderful idea for a magazine. Boosted by
her faith in him, DeWitt started mailing circular
letters to potential subscribers.

In October, 1921 Lila married DeWitt. On returning from
their honeymoon, they found a bundle of letters from
interested subscribers. Together they worked on Volume
1, Number 1, which appeared in February, 1922. DeWitt
Wallace included Lila Bell Acheson as his co-founder,
co-editor, and co-owner. Over the years their little
magazine grew. Now printed in at least eighteen
languages, Reader's Digest is the best selling magazine
in the entire world.

DeWitt and Lila were more than husband and wife, they
were true friends. They encouraged, supported, and
believed in each other. They worked side by side to
make their dream come true, and in the process they
respected each other. DeWitt once said, "I think Lila
made the Digest possible." I can imagine that Lila
would probably say the same about DeWitt.

Yes, love believes all things. It sticks up for
seemingly impossible dreams, cheering as those dreams
struggle forward and applauding when they finally come
true.
