She was a Research Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, and at the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty.

Until August 2006, Dr Morse and her husband were foster parents for San Diego County. In the summer of 2008, Dr Morse founded the Ruth Institute, a non-profit educational organization dedicated to bringing hope and encouragement for life-long married love.
