Heart Rending, but GREAT! Jan 23, 2010

Hope for the Hurting is for everyone Jul 6, 2009
Mrs. Graham did a wonderful job writing her testimony that, if read, will help so many hurting people, young and old. Her vulnerablity was evident in her life story. I could relate to Ruth regarding her daughter's unplanned pregnancy; how she and God handled it was heartwarming. Being the daughter of a prominent evangelist made it more humbling than most to admit the tragic divorce in her life. Mrs. Graham gave proof that "God loves us and turns bad things around to glorify him. Mrs. Entzminger, Oakton, VA
truth can hurt Mar 25, 2009
I'm about halfway through reading, talk about hitting home. I got it for my husband who is a p.k.and am finding alot of truths about myself in it.Sometimes it goes on a few things too long before getting to the point, but all in all it is very helpful in coming to terms with yourself.
What makes us think we are immune to hurt? Nov 25, 2007
I started the audio book yesterday and could not stop listening. This audio book shares Ruth's heart. If Billy Graham's daughter can go through such trials, what makes us think we are immune to the hurt the world gives us.
Do you need encouraging? Sep 6, 2007
This book will do it. I look at the families of others and think that they are so blessed that they can't go through hard times. Ruth Graham puts that throught to rest. She is a real flesh and blood person with a story to share.
