Today, we learn about positive pro-life legislative proposals across the country. Then, as a beloved evangelist and a respected man of God, Billy Graham's stated purpose in life never wavered: to help people find a personal relationship with God through a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. This was a calling that only increased over time, and Billy embraced it fully throughout his active ministry and beyond. Yet Billy pursued his life's work, as many men do, amid a similarly significant calling to be a loving husband and father. Today, we talk with the man who knew him as “Daddy.”
Our guest will share her story of how God helped unravel the hurt and hopelessness that had her tangled up for so long. Knot by knot, we will walk through her story of true redemption. If you're questioning how God could possibly love you or if you have made a wrong turn and are wondering how to get back, this conversation is custom designed for you.
