Fearless faith in a compromising culture.

All Episodes

Show NotesAs we continue to talk about the viciousness of cancel culture, Christians are increasingly facing a crossroads. Have we truly considered the cost of the cross? Are we prepared to risk it all in order to follow Jesus Christ? The Newsboys’ new song “Stand,” co-written by this week’s guest Michael Tait, encourages Christians to be unashamed, consider the cost and take a stand at the foot of the cross. It’s an anthem that fits this time in our culture, where being a Christian or a conservative can put a target on your back. We’re going to have to take a stand for truth. Are you ready?ScripturesEphesians 6:131 Corinthians 15:581 Corinthians 16:13Going Farther Newsboys - https://www.newsboys.com/ Michael Tait Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/michaeltait/?hl=en Websites:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.orgSamaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/Social Media:Cissie Graham Lynch Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynch Cissie Graham Lynch Instagram -- https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/ Cissie Graham Lynch Twitter -- https://twitter.com/CissieGLynch Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/ Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

What happens when you find yourself in the crosshairs of cancel culture? Are you willing to risk your job, friends and finances to stand boldly for Biblical principles?From celebrities to businesses and organizations, it’s almost impossible to escape the cancel culture mob, which seems to take great joy in tearing down others and destroying businesses and relationships. This battle can even become personal, as in the case of Chad and Bree Barela.The owners of two small businesses in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Chad and Bree were targeted by cancel culture after the couple declined to participate in a planned Black Lives Matter social media campaign in their local community.As a result, they lost thousands of dollars in business, their store was vandalized and they were attacked online.Chad and Bree’s experience is a reminder to everyone that standing strong for the Gospel is not easy nor is it without cost. On this episode of Fearless, listen in as Chad and Bree share their story about what it was like when cancel culture came for them and they had a choice, stand up fearlessly for their Biblical convictions or bend to the mob. ScripturesMatthew 24Isaiah 43:2Daniel 11:321 Corinthians 1:10Going Farther Chad Barela Jewelry – https://chadbarela.com/ (There will be a 30% off Black Friday sale)Towns Hair Service - https://townsshop.co/ Websites:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.orgSamaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/Social Media:Cissie Graham Lynch Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynchCissie Graham Lynch Instagram -- https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/Cissie Graham Lynch Twitter -- https://twitter.com/CissieGLynchBilly Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Show NotesWelcome to FEARLESS! On this episode of Fearless I’m welcoming back one of my favorite pastors, Skip Heitzig, and his wife Lenya. They’ve been family friends for years, and I am so blessed to welcome them to Fearless to talk about how we can stand strong against the cultural giants we’re currently facing with confidence and the grace of God.The giants that we face in our culture, much like Goliath, can feel overwhelming and impossible to defeat. From the divisiveness in the church to the pandemic related lockdowns, it can be difficult to stand strong for the Gospel. But as people of faith, we are called to be a light to the world.“Somebody said, ‘Courage is just fear that has said its prayers,’” Skip said. “So, it’s time to harness your fears. Be courageous by getting on your knees and saying, ‘God, what do you want me to do now in light of this?’”  Both Skip and Lenya have been a great encouragement to me and my family in so many ways over the years, and so I hope that this episode fills you with hope as you stand strong for the sake of the Gospel. Scriptures ReferencedHebrews 4:16Psalm 46:11 Samuel 17Going Farther Cissie speaking at Calvary Church with Skip, Lenya and Vince Torres - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Je_Zdf86OCI Hunting Giants Video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MC5LrR_rZwwReload Love - https://reloadlove.com/ Amsterdam 2000 - https://billygraham.org/gallery/remembering-amsterdam-2000/ https://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2000/julyweb-only/32.0d.htmlWebsites:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.orgSamaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/Social Media:Cissie Graham Lynch Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynchCissie Graham Lynch Instagram -- https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/Cissie Graham Lynch Twitter -- https://twitter.com/CissieGLynchBilly Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/ Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/ Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Show NotesWelcome to FEARLESS! On this episode of Fearless we’re commemorating Veterans Day and all of those men and women who have served our country. My special guest is Lieutenant General William ‘Jerry’ Boykin who’s been motivated by his faith and passion for this country to serve on the front lines.In our conversation, Boykin shares about his love for the U.S. military, how his father and several uncles served in World War II and the power of a praying mother. He also reflects on how he struggled with his faith and God after the Battle of Mogadishu, known by many as the Black Hawk Down incident, where 19 service members died and dozens were injured, including Boykin himself.  “It broke me,” he told me. “I was really angry with God. And all I could think was, ‘God, why did you let this happen?’” Veterans Day is an opportunity to take a moment and thank those men and women who have dedicated their lives to our military and protecting our country.  “Just live your faith,” Boykin said. “And God will take care of the rest. You live your faith and be faithful.”I’m so thankful for those veterans who have served on and off the battlefield, and especially Lt. Gen. Boykin for joining me today. I also want to thank my brother, Edward Graham, who spent 16 years in the U.S. Army and Special Operations. I hope that this podcast fills you with the hope of the Gospel and a greater appreciation for those who serve in the United States Armed Forces.Scriptures Referenced1 John 1:9Psalm 91John 15:13Going Farther General Boykin’s book - Never Surrender: A Soldier’s Journey to the Crossroads of Faith and Freedom https://www.amazon.com/Never-Surrender-Soldiers-Journey-Crossroads/dp/0446583227 Websites:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/ Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.orgSamaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/Social Media:Cissie Graham Lynch Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynchCissie Graham Lynch Instagram -- https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/Cissie Graham Lynch Twitter -- https://twitter.com/CissieGLynchBilly Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/ Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Show NotesWelcome to FEARLESS! On this episode, I’m talking with New York Times bestselling author and dear friend Eric Metaxas about science, faith, Biblical archaeology and what’s happening in the church and culture.In our conversation, Eric shares some of the incredible discoveries that have been made in the fields of science and archaeology that point to Creation, the Bible’s historical accuracy and, most importantly, the existence of God. It’s all part of his new book, “Is Atheism Dead?”We also talk about the enduring legacy of his book “Bonhoeffer,” and how the story of German pastor and Nazi resistor Dietrich Bonhoeffer continues to resonate with us today.This podcast is a great reminder that we don’t need to be fearful of the times that we live in—nothing has taken God by surprise. So, I hope you enjoy this podcast and are deeply encouraged in your walk with the Lord.Scriptures ReferencedGenesis 1Genesis 19:1-29 Isaiah 41:10Philippians 4:6-7Going Farther Eric Metaxas – https://ericmetaxas.com/ MyStore – https://www.mypillow.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=Eric+Metaxas (Use code ERIC to save $5.00)Is Atheism Dead? – https://ericmetaxas.com/books/is-atheism-dead/ Websites:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.orgSamaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/Social Media Cissie Graham Lynch Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynchCissie Graham Lynch Instagram -- https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/Cissie Graham Lynch Twitter -- https://twitter.com/CissieGLynchBilly Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/ Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Show NotesWelcome to FEARLESS! On this episode, we’re talking about how a fearless faith begins with fear. Over the years, I’ve come to understand that a fearless and sustaining faith can only come when we fear God. But what does it mean to fear? In the simplest terms, it means that we take God seriously. We respect Him, we obey Him, we submit to His discipline and we worship Him in awe. And there is a blessing and peace that comes when we fear the Lord.Proverbs 9:10 tells us that “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Join me on this episode of FEARLESS as we talk more about my concerns for the Church and what it means to have a faith centered on a foundational understanding that our God is a Holy God who deserves our love, honor, respect and, yes, even our fear. Scriptures ReferencedIsaiah 6:5Psalm 1121 John 4:10, 18Proverbs 14:27Proverbs 1:7 Billy Graham – How Can We Fear and Love God at the Same Time:To learn more, visit https://billygraham.org/answer/how-can-we-fear-god-and-also-love-him-at-the-same-time-isnt-that-a-contradiction/ Greg Laurie Quote:To learn more, visit: https://harvest.org/resources/gregs-blog/post/what-does-it-mean-to-fear-god/ Going Farther Billy Graham Evangelistic Association - https://billygraham.org/ Ruth Bell Graham - https://billygraham.org/about/biographies/ruth-bell-graham/Franklin Graham - https://billygraham.org/about/biographies/franklin-graham/ Samaritan’s Purse - https://www.samaritanspurse.org/ World Medical Mission - https://www.samaritanspurse.org/medical/world-medical-mission/ Bob Pierce - https://www.samaritanspurse.org/our-ministry/history/  Websites: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/ Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.org Samaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/ Social Media: Cissie Graham Lynch Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynch Cissie Graham Lynch Instagram -- https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/ Cissie Graham Lynch Twitter -- https://twitter.com/CissieGLynch Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook --

Show NotesWelcome to FEARLESS! This episode is one that I’ve been wanting to capture for a long time. My special guest this week is one of the greatest influences in my life, someone who I want everyone to know, and that’s my mom, Jane Graham.Over the years, so many people have asked questions about my mom. Though she’s Franklin Graham’s wife and Billy Graham’s daughter-in-law, my mother isn’t really one for the spotlight. Her ministry has always been more private and behind the scenes, taking care of our family and serving those around her in our community.I’m so excited that I get to share a little bit of her with you this week. We’re going to talk about her early life, how she met my dad in Montreat, NC, the influence of my grandmother Ruth Bell Graham, her faith, being in ministry and the challenges and joys of motherhood and marriage.I hope that you’re inspired and encouraged as you listen my conversation with my mom. It’s an episode that you’re not going to want to miss. Scripture ReferencedProverbs 31:10-31Route 66 – God Loves You TourThis fall, Franklin Graham will share the Good News from eight cities located on Route 66. To learn more, visit http://godlovesyoutour.com. Going Farther Billy Graham Evangelistic Association - https://billygraham.org/Ruth Bell Graham - https://billygraham.org/about/biographies/ruth-bell-graham/Franklin Graham - https://billygraham.org/about/biographies/franklin-graham/Samaritan’s Purse - https://www.samaritanspurse.org/World Medical Mission - https://www.samaritanspurse.org/medical/world-medical-mission/ Bob Pierce - https://www.samaritanspurse.org/our-ministry/history/  Websites: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/ Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.org Samaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/ Social Media: Cissie Graham Lynch Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynch Cissie Graham Lynch Instagram -- https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/ Cissie Graham Lynch Twitter -- https://twitter.com/CissieGLynch Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/

Welcome to FEARLESS! I’m honored to have my brother Edward Graham as my guest with me for this unique episode of FEARLESS as we remember the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on 9/11 and the recent chaos in Afghanistan. My brother Edward served for 16 years in the military in special operations and was actually at West Point Military Academy on that terrible Tuesday morning. In many ways, his life and so many others were forever impacted by the terrorist attacks and he graduated knowing that he would spend his entire career fighting the war on terrorism.  I’m so incredibly thankful for his service, and those of other members of our military.  To commemorate the 20th anniversary of September 11, I’ve asked my brother to share about his time in the military, how the terror attacks changed the future of his military career and his thoughts about what is currently happening in Afghanistan. He also shares what Samaritan’s Purse is doing to help and support Afghans in need. If you’re listening to this podcast and you’re struggling with anxiety over the recent news of what’s happening in Afghanistan and around the world, there is hope. Despite the chaos of this world, God is sovereign and none of this took him by surprise. Those listening can call the Billy Graham Prayer Line at 888-388-2683, and someone will pray with you about anything going on in your life. We are also in continued prayers for those who lost family members during the September 11 attacks. Samaritan’s Purse Afghanistan Response: https://www.samaritanspurse.org/article/samaritans-purse-helping-desperate-afghans/  Franklin Graham’s Prayer for Afghanistan: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=369107441288999 Operation Heal Our Patriotshttps://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/about-operation-heal-our-patriots/  Scripture ReferencedLuke 10:25-37 Route 66 – God Loves You Tour This fall, Franklin Graham will share the Good News from eight cities located on Route 66.  To learn more, visit http://godlovesyoutour.com. Going Farther  Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/ Websites: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/ Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.org Samaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/ Social Media: Cissie Graham Lynch Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynch Cissie Graham Lynch Instagram --

Welcome back to Fearless! After a longer than anticipated summer break, I’m excited to continue sharing with you how we can engage the culture with a Fearless faith. Today my guest is my father, Franklin Graham.My family and I have been privileged for the last several years to serve alongside my father’s organization, Samaritan’s Purse, as they minister to military veterans and their spouses in Alaska through Operation Heal Our Patriots (OHOP). Through spiritual refreshment, physical renewal and marriage enrichment, we’ve seen miracles of the heart that only God could do with couples who are struggling in their marriages. I’m so incredibly thankful to be able to witness it and share some of it with you this week.  The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association was even able to send police officer couples for two weeks as well, ministering to those who have been wounded serving on the frontlines of our communities’ every day.But this week is heavy. Violence and chaos have engulfed Afghanistan, once again putting the country in the hands of the evil Taliban regime, which provided sanctuary to Osama bin Laden as he and al-Qaeda planned the 9/11 attacks that occurred 20 years ago next month. There’s also the recent earthquake in Haiti and the coronavirus pandemic. When 9/11 happened, my grandfather Billy Graham spoke to the nation at the National Cathedral. As part of his message, he said, “We’ve seen so much that brings tears to our eyes and makes us all feel a sense of anger. But God can be trusted, even when life seems at its darkest.”Billy Graham's 9/11 Message from the Washington National CathedralPlease join with me in lifting our nation and the world up in prayer during this dark time.Scripture ReferencedMatthew 5:13-16Route 66 – God Loves You Tour This fall, Franklin Graham will share the Good News from eight cities located on Route 66. To learn more, visit http://godlovesyoutour.com. 20th Anniversary of Rapid Response Team September 11 marks the 20 year anniversary of the BGEA Rapid Response Team, which Christians how to share hope in times of crisis.Going Farther  Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/Websites: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.orgSamaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/Social Media:Cissie Graham Lynch Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynch Cissie Graham Lynch Instagram -- https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/ Cissie Graham Lynch Twitter -- https://twitter.com/CissieGLynch Billy Graham Evangelistic Associ

As we’re getting ready to celebrate our nation’s 245th birthday, there are some Americans hate our country and reject the precious freedoms we enjoy. They think they’ll find a better freedom in socialism, Marxism or some other -ism that’s failed in other countries. They ignore how America has led the fight for freedom both here and around the world.The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. It reminds me of the importance of our nation’s freedoms and an even greater freedom—the one Jesus offers us from sin. This is the last episode of Fearless until August. (I'm taking a little hiatus for the summer) My family and I are spending July in Alaska serving with Samaritan’s Purse and its ministry to military couples called Operation Heal Our Patriots. I hope you have a wonderful summer!Scripture Referenced:John 18:28-40 John 14:6John 8:31-32Going Farther: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/Websites:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.orgSamaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/Social Media:Cissie Graham Lynch Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynchCissie Graham Lynch Instagram -- https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/Cissie Graham Lynch Twitter -- https://twitter.com/CissieGLynchBilly Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/                                                                                                                 Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

It’s easy to get anxious or fearful about what’s going on in culture—not only for ourselves but for our children. This happened to me recently, and then I listened to a few of my grandfather, Billy Graham’s, messages. Daddy Bill’s sermons reminded me of the importance of having a heavenly mindset, especially when it seems chaos is everywhere. So, I decided to do another installment of my Legacy series, in which I share some of the Christian life lessons I learned from my grandfather. And from my grandmother, Ruth Graham, too.This is the 50th episode and two year anniversary of Fearless, so I’ll also talk about how Fearless came about—or, actually, how it almost didn’t.Scripture Referenced:Romans 1:16Philippians 3Colossians 31 Peter 1:3-4 Going Farther: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/“The Heaven Answer Book” by Billy Graham – https://www.billygrahambookstore.org/the-heaven-answer-bookWebsites:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.orgSamaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/Social Media: Cissie Graham Lynch Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynchCissie Graham Lynch Instagram -- https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/ Cissie Graham Lynch Twitter -- https://twitter.com/CissieGLynchBilly Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/                                                                                                                         Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/ Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

It’s easy to think progressive Christianity is characterized by a focus on social issues and emphasizing God’s love and mercy. But it’s more dangerous than that. As my guest, Alisa Childers, discovered, leaders of progressive Christianity want to deconstruct the historical Christian faith--and take others with them. She’s written a book titled “Another Gospel?”Alisa was a member of the Christian band Zoe Girl. After the band broke up so the members could raise their families, Alisa joined a Bible study to grow deeper in her faith. Instead, she discovered the pastor leading the group was encouraging its members to abandon Biblical truths. On this episode of Fearless, we will discuss the core differences between historic and progressive Christianity--and how to recognize progressive Christianity. Going Farther:  Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/“Another Gospel” by Alisa Childers -- https://www.alisachilders.com/anothergospel.htmlThe Alisa Childer’s Podcast - https://www.alisachilders.com/podcast.htmlWebsites: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.orgSamaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/Alisa Childers -- https://www.alisachilders.com/ Social Media:Cissie Graham Lynch Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynch Cissie Graham Lynch Instagram -- https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/Cissie Graham Lynch Twitter -- https://twitter.com/CissieGLynchBilly Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/                                                                                                     Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

College campuses are being overwhelmed by liberalism and anti-God rhetoric, but there is a wave of bold and compassionate students taking a fearless stand for life. I’m inspired by the work Kristan Hawkins is doing through her pro-life organization, Students for Life. They’re working to end abortion and change culture. However, with a liberal pro-choice president in the White House, changing political policy is going to be even harder. Kristan says that 79% of Planned Parenthood clinics are within five miles of a college campus and that 52% of abortion-seeking women are under the age of 25. But along with the disturbing facts about abortion and Planned Parenthood, she also shares encouraging stories and helpful tactics. And Kristan explains why if we want to end abortion we have to start with young people. Going Farther:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/ Websites:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.orgSamaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/Students for Life -- https://studentsforlife.org/Social Media:Cissie Graham Lynch Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynchCissie Graham Lynch Instagram -- https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/Cissie Graham Lynch Twitter -- https://twitter.com/CissieGLynchBilly Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/                                                                                                                   Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Israel isn’t much bigger than New Jersey and it’s home to only about nine million people, but it’s one of the most important--and criticized—countries in the world. American evangelical Christians have been one of Israel’s closest allies for decades, but do you know why? Do you know the Biblical significance of Israel today?Skip Heitzig’s understanding of this Jewish nation runs deep and he joined me on this episode to explain what you need to know about historic and modern Israel. Skip has lived in Israel and visited it 41 times. He’s also the senior pastor of Calvary Church of Albuquerque and a good friend of my family.Scripture Referenced:Isaiah 11:11, 66Psalm 2Jeremiah 33:3Romans 11Genesis 3, 6Revelation 12Matthew 22 Samuel & 1 Chronicles (The Promise to David)Ezekiel 5Daniel 11Going Farther:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/Bloodline: Tracing God’s Rescue Plan from Eden to Eternity, by Skip Heitzig -- https://shop.calvaryabq.org/mm5/merchant.mvc?Session_ID=f453b4ab250b1961cb0d93ccc97b5529&Store_Code=CALVARY&Screen=PROD&Product_Code=B531Biography of God, by Skip Heitzig -- https://shop.calvaryabq.org/mm5/merchant.mvc?Session_ID=f453b4ab250b1961cb0d93ccc97b5529&Store_Code=CALVARY&Screen=PROD&Product_Code=B542Websites:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.orgSamaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/7 Days in the Holy Land with Franklin Graham and Cissie Graham Lynch -- https://billygraham.org/video/7-days-in-the-holy-land/Connect with Skip Heitzig -- https://connectwithskip.com/Social Media:Cissie Graham Lynch Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynchCissie Graham Lynch Instagram -- https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/Cissie Graham Lynch Twitter -- https://twitter.com/CissieGLynchBilly Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook --

Recently many of you have sent me questions through social media, and I’m answering them on this episode of Fearless. They cover a wide range of topics, from our kids’ education, to Bible studies, engaging with people on politics, and even the royal family.Some of the questions are fun and some are tough, but they’re all thought provoking and important. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I enjoyed answering them.Scripture Referenced:·         Daniel 11:32 ·         Psalm 89·         Jeremiah 4·         Deuteronomy 6·         Matthew 5:37·         Hosea 4:6Going Farther:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/Websites: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.orgSamaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/Decision Magazine - https://decisionmagazine.com/Social MediaCissie Graham Lynch Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynchCissie Graham Lynch Instagram -- https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/Cissie Graham Lynch Twitter -- https://twitter.com/CissieGLynchBilly Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/                                                                                                             Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/ Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Every year we celebrate Easter but it’s easy to forget why it’s so significant. Especially in a world that is constantly trying to distract you from the holiness of God, the price Jesus paid for us on the cross and the power of the resurrection.In this episode I sat down with my brother Will Graham. We talked about the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and how these offer us the ultimate hope and peace. Scripture Referenced: John 14:272 Corinthians 5:7Psalm 107Matthew 27:11-26John 18:28-40Luke 23:26-49Isaiah 53:10Philippians 1:21Genesis 3Going Farther: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/Websites:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/Will Graham Live-Good Friday Service -- www.willgrahamlive.comWill Graham Easter Devotional Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove -- https://thecove.org/Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.org Samaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/https://cissiegrahamlynch.com/episode-45-easter-and-the-good-news-of-jesus-with-will-graham/ Facebook:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/                                                                                                                       Will Graham Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/WillGraham4 Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynch/posts/287224916109121 https://w

My friend Kathy Yokeley was stunned when her daughter, Natalie, was diagnosed with inoperable spinal cord cancer at the age of twelve. Nine months later, Natalie was gone. Kathy and her family have struggled through intense grief, but they’ve also learned about God’s infinite faithfulness. In this episode, Kathy and I sit down to talk about her experience navigating a parent’s worst nightmare and how Natalie’s life left a lasting impact on the world. Kathy recently released a book documenting her emotional story. Not My Plans: When God Allows a Parent's Worst Fear to Come True is now available on Amazon.

Show Notes: There’s a lot of confusion in churches and among Christians regarding many issues. The enemy can use confusion to divide, but God gives us wisdom and understanding through His Word.Two of the most troubling issues I see needing to be addressed within the Church are social justice and Critical Race Theory. I’ve asked Darrell Harrison and Virgil Walker of the “Just Thinking” podcast to help us look at these concepts from a Biblical perspective. Scripture:Jeremiah 4 and 6Acts 17Genesis 1, 3, 5 and 62 Timothy 31 Peter 3Luke 7 and 19Matthew 51 John 52 Peter 3Ephesians 1Revelation 4 and 72 Kings 3Ecclesiastes 7Romans 1, 3, 5 and 8Colossians 1 and 2Going Farther:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online:https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/Websites:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.orgSamaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/Just Thinking with Darrell Harrison and Virgil Walker -- https://justthinking.me/Social Media: Cissie’s Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynch/Cissie’s Instagram – @cissiegrahamlynchCissie's Twitter -- @CissieGLynchBilly Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

For many years people have turned a blind eye and now Christians will be facing the severe consequences. There’s a bill making its way through Congress that would grant federal protection to people based on their sexual orientation and gender identity. But does non-discrimination for some step on the rights of those outside of this specific group?In this episode I look at the far reaching and dangerous implications of the Equality Act and what you can do to try to stop it.Going Farther:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/Websites:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.orgDecision Magazine -- https://decisionmagazine.com/Samaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/Social Media:Cissie’s Facebook –https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynchCissie’s Instagram – @cissiegrahamlynchCissies Twitter -- @CissieGLynchBilly Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/                                                                                                                Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Show Notes:On this episode of Fearless, I’m talking about the word, “unity.” It’s been the subject of speeches and headlines, but—at a time when it feels like our country has never been more divided—is unity even possible? In today’s culture, “unity” has been tossed around so much that it’s lost its meaning. It’s worth considering what the word “unity” means, and how we can find it.True unity can only be found in Jesus Christ. The world has rejected Jesus, and therefore rejected unity. However, Jesus calls the Church to be an example of unity. Now, more than ever, the Church can show the world the truth of Jesus Christ through its unity. Scripture Referenced:Romans 12:17-18John 14:27Galatians 3:8John 3:19Going Farther:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/Websites:Fearless Website – https://cissiegrahamlynch.com/Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.orgSamaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/Social Media:CGL Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynchCGL Instagram -- https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/CGL Twitter – @CissieGLynchBilly Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

UPDATE: March For Life organizers have decided to make the 2021 March a virtual event. The decision was announced on the afternoon of January 15, after this episode of Fearless was recorded and posted. Make plans to join from the VIRTUAL March for Life from your home, your office, or wherever you are on January 29, 2021.The pro-life issue isn’t reserved for certain people — it is a fight that concerns us all and one we can all take part in. My heart was convicted of this last year after attending the March for Life for the first time. It’s a day which changed my life.  It’s easy to be in the fight when the current administration is also fighting for life, but there are people and organizations that have been on the front lines even when it’s been hard. One of those people is Jeanne Mancini, the president of March for Life and a fierce pro-life advocate. In this episode of Fearless I had the privilege of speaking with Jeanne about the organization March for Life, and how it’s actively fighting for the rights of the unborn. I hope you are encouraged to join the fight by attending the virtual March for Life event on January 29, 2021.  marchforlife.comScripture Referenced:1 Corinthians 12:12-27Going Farther:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/Jeanne’s Article in The National Review--https://www.nationalreview.com/2020/12/becerra-would-be-a-radical-pro-abortion-warrior-at-hhs/?itm_source=parsely-apiWebsites:March For Life website -- https://marchforlife.org/Fearless Website – https://cissiegrahamlynch.com/ Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/Billy Graham Radio – www.billygrahamradio.orgSamaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/                                                                                                               Connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter:https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynchhttps://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/https://twitter.com/CissieGLynch

The demonstrations in Washington, D.C. on January 6th were a stark reminder that 2021 may not provide the relief from 2020 many of us were hoping for. But they’re also a reminder of the importance of placing our faith in God this new year. In this first episode of 2021 I want to encourage you to be prepared for whatever 2021 holds.

As I was looking back at the photos from 2020, I felt grateful for more time spent with my family. I know not many people will look back at 2020 the same way. But I am reminded this Christmas week, that if we know God’s Word and have confidence in it, we can be assured that the Lord is with us.

Some of the sweetest times we shared were gathered around the table as a family at his house in the mountains of North Carolina. As we head toward the end of the year and look back on 2020, I thought it was a great time to reflect on a tradition we have in our family – and a command that we are given repeatedly in God’s Word.Scripture Referenced    ·       1 Thessalonians 5:16-18    ·       Philippians 4:8-9    ·       Isaiah 43    ·       Habakkuk 3:17 Going Farther    ·       Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/  Websites:    ·       Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/    ·       Billy Graham Radio -- https://billygraham.org/tv-and-radio/radio/    ·       Samaritan’s Purse -- https://samaritanspurse.org/ Facebooks:    ·       Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/    ·       Billy Graham Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/    ·       Billy Graham Radio Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Show NotesNovember 11 is Veterans Day, a special day to remember and honor all of those who have served in our military. In light of this day, I sat down with a very special guest, my brother Edward Graham, who is a veteran himself.Edward graduated from the United States Military Academy, also known as West Point, in 2003, just two years after 9/11. He served in eight combat deployments within special operations forces, and recently left his beloved military career to serve alongside my dad, Franklin Graham, at Samaritan’s Purse.In this episode of Fearless, we talk about what Veterans Day means for those who served in the military, how Edward’s faith in Jesus Christ affected his mission, and ways that he and his fellow veterans can continue to serve the United States with the skills they’ve been given by God. Today, and every day, we are so thankful for our veterans and the sacrifices they’ve made for our country.Scripture Referenced·         Matthew 14:22-33Going Farther·         Operation Heal Our Patriots -- https://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/about-operation-heal-our-patriots/·         Team Patriot -- https://www.samaritanspurse.org/our-ministry/team-patriot/Websites:·         Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/·         Billy Graham Radio -- https://billygraham.org/tv-and-radio/radio/·         Samaritan’s Purse -- https://samaritanspurse.org/Facebooks:·         Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/·         Billy Graham Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/·         Billy Graham Radio Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Show NotesThe 2020 elections have been said to be one of the most pivotal elections of our lifetime. Many experts have even said that it is the most critical since the election of Abraham Lincoln. As I was sitting in my quiet house on the eve of Election Day, I was wondering what my message would be when we found out the results. I was reminded of 2 Chronicles 20, when Jehoshaphat turned to God – this battle is not ours, it belongs to God. No matter who wins or loses, my message, my job, and my passions will remain the same. This year hasn’t taken God by surprise. The next days and weeks might be shocking to us, yet no matter the results the sun will still rise and God will still sit on His Throne.

Show NotesI’ve always been passionate about religion and politics, but I know that not everyone my age, especially Christian millennials, shares the same sentiments towards this topic. Someone even once told me that he didn’t believe Christians should have roles in politics. In this episode I want to encourage you not to look at the word ‘politics,’ but let’s look at it as ‘governance’ and who will govern over you. Right now, we have two political parties fighting over how they will govern us.40 million evangelicals did not vote in 2016, and many said it’s because they did not love either candidate. As I hear that again this year, I want to remind you that love has never been the standard regarding who we vote for. The standard is the policies that a candidate represents and their ability to lead this country.Whether or not you love a certain candidate, as Christians and as Americans, we have been given the opportunity to vote in order to protect our families, our neighbors, and our freedoms. With the 2020 election just around the corner, this episode of the #FearlessPodcast addresses some things I want to encourage you to think about as you prepare to head to the polls.Social MediaMany people are weary of the political climate as we near the 2020 election, and like 2016 when 40 million evangelicals didn’t vote, I hear the same conversations happening today.

I started my last social media post with a statement: “Recognizing a group which has overcome a lot of barriers.”In our county in Florida, where my children attend school, the idea was proposed to “celebrate” LGBTQ+ History Month in schools where kids of all ages would be taught this sexual ideology.I have been talking about taking a stand for the education of our children a lot lately. Being a mom and a Christian with a public platform, I receive letters from parents all across the country who have great concern over what their kids are being taught in schools.Recently, I received a message from a grandmother of a fourth grader after a book was sent home about two boys falling in love and kissing. We have seen in Virginia schools where there have been books about LGBT in kindergarten.When this issue came to my own doorstep this week, I had to practice what I preach.Why has sexual ideology become the forefront of educational endeavors? And why would you introduce teaching something like sexuality to kindergarten-aged kids that can’t even tie their own shoes? Why do school districts want to take the place of parents?I address these questions, my experience this week at my local school board meeting, and my suggestions for how we should approach this on the #FearlessPodcast.Scripture ReferencedEphesians 5:15-16John 1:17Going FartherWhy states need to ditch mandatory ‘LGBT history’ education programs – https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/why-states-need-to-ditch-mandatory-lgbt-history-education-programsVirginia School District to Keep LGBTQ Children’s Books – https://decisionmagazine.com/virginia-school-district-to-keep-lgbtq-childrens-books/Billy Graham sermon, “Educational problems in America” – https://billygraham.org/audio/educational-problems-in-america/Websites:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association — https://billygraham.org/Billy Graham Radio — https://billygraham.org/tv-and-radio/radio/Samaritan’s Purse — https://samaritanspurse.org/Facebooks:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/Billy Graham Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/Billy Graham Radio Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Show NotesAs Christian parents, it’s important that we know what our school system is teaching our children. I believe that we are in a battle, a spiritual war, for our children’s hearts, minds, and souls in this country. We need to be prepared to stand up for our children and speak biblical truth into their lives. Will we sit back and allow the secular left to win our children over, or are we going to fight for them?On today’s episode of Fearless, I’ve invited my friend Todd Chasteen, Vice President of Public Policy and Corporate Counsel at Samaritan's Purse, to discuss these educational issues and help encourage you in truth as you advocate for your children.Scripture Referenced• Deuteronomy 6:4-9• Romans 3:28• Acts 17• Psalm 128:3Going Farther• Philadelphia School Teacher Worries about ‘Conservative’ Parents Listening in on Virtual Classes – www.foxnews.com/us/philadelphia-p…n-virtual-classes• Harper Collins Publishers – The Content of Our Character by Shelby Steele – www.harpercollins.com/products/the-c…32116701003810• Monique Duson – Say No to Critical Race Theory -- www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=…&feature=youtu.be• Yale Daily News – Faculty Call for Ideological Diversity – yaledailynews.com/blog/2019/12/06/…gical-diversity/• Just Thinking Podcast with Darryl Harrison and Virgil Walker – justthinking.me/Websites:• Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- billygraham.org/• Billy Graham Radio -- billygraham.org/tv-and-radio/radio/• Samaritan’s Purse -- samaritanspurse.org/• 1776 Unites – 1776unites.com/• J.

There’s been a lot of debate over schooling methods, and many people asked about what my husband and I decided to do with our children this fall regarding the new school year and their education. Today’s podcast episode is all about navigating this chaotic back to school season.

Most of us will never know what true persecution is. Pastor Andrew Brunson and his wife Norine do. They were arrested and imprisoned in Turkey — where they planted a church and served for more than 20 years — because of their religious beliefs. After two years, Andrew Brunson was released from prison. I had the chance to sit down with the Brunsons a few weeks ago in Alaska. At the time, I didn't know that Andrew and I would stand on the national stage this week during the Republican National Convention, he talking about his release from prison in Turkey and I talking about religious freedom.When I asked Andrew Brunson to join me on the #FearlessPodcast, his answer is one that I did not expect – I think you’ll be shocked at what his reply was.Scripture Referenced•Isaiah 11•Hebrews 13:3Going Farther•Decision Magazine – Articles on Andrew Brunson https://decisionmagazine.com/search/andrew+brunson/ •God’s Hostage: A true story of persecution, imprisonment, and perseverance https://www.godshostagebook.com/ Websites:•Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/•Billy Graham Radio -- https://billygraham.org/tv-and-radio/radio/•Samaritan’s Purse -- https://www.samaritanspurse.org/ Facebooks:•Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/•Billy Graham Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/•Billy Graham Radio Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Show NotesWe live in a time where our country–our world–needs healing and reconciliation. Since I started the #FearlessPodcast, my desire has been to help Christians navigate their faith through an ever-changing and ever-compromising culture. Today, I am once again challenging Christians to know what they believe and why they believe it – and to know the facts and truth of the organizations they support; to know that we are giving our time, money, and attention to God-honoring issues and platforms.

Show NotesAfter the heinous death of George Floyd and events following, it is apparent that racism is deeply rooted in the hearts of many today. All week I’ve wrestled with the questions in my head – and maybe you’re wondering the same: what can I do? From my grandfather’s words to what God has laid on my own heart, today on #Fearless I’m addressing racism and the turmoil in America today.Scripture Referenced•Romans 12•Galatians 3:18•Matthew 5:44Going FartherTaking Down the Ropes (video) - https://billygraham.org/video/taking-down-the-ropes-of-segregation/ Billy Graham Rapid Response Team - https://billygraham.org/what-we-do/evangelism-outreach/rapid-response-team/deployments/related/ Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – The BGEA Prayer Line is available 24/7 at 888-388-2683 Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Spiritual Resources - https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-spiritual-resources Websites:•Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/•Billy Graham Radio -- https://billygraham.org/tv-and-radio/radio/Facebooks:•Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/•Billy Graham Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/•Billy Graham Radio Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Show Notes“The United States and the freedom for which it stands, the freedom for which they died, must endure and prosper. Their lives remind us that freedom is not bought cheaply. It has a cost; it imposes a burden.” – Ronald ReaganToday I’m joined by a special guest – my sister-in-law Kristy Graham – who challenged me several years ago to reevaluate how my family and I recognize Memorial Day. Kristy has spent 16 years as a military wife, married to my brother Edward, who served in the U.S. Army. Today on the #FearlessPodcast, Kristy and I are talking about the real reason we recognize this day and want to encourage you and your family to do the same. We’ll also hear from Kristy’s friend, Lisa, who is a Gold Star Wife and lost her husband.

While that looks different from state to state, and even from community to community, it affects us all. Today on the #FearlessPodcast I am sharing the questions we as Christians and Americans need to ask as we reflect on the last few months and begin to move forward. And I’ll take a quick look at why we need to have a fearless faith especially as we face a time when cultural circumstances could compromise our religious freedom.Scripture Referenced• Daniel 10:13• 2 Timothy 1:7Going Farther• Coronavirus Resources from the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association - https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-spiritual-resources/ Websites:• Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/• Billy Graham Radio -- https://billygraham.org/tv-and-radio/radio/Facebooks:• Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/• Billy Graham Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/•Billy Graham Radio Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Not only is the coronavirus keeping us from being able to celebrate with friends in church, it’s reminding us of the darkness of death. But as Christians we know who conquers that darkness and holds the victory in our lives. In this episode of Fearless, I look at the hope everyone can find in the cross and resurrection of Jesus Christ.SCRIPTURE REFERENCEDPsalm 119 – variousDaniel 11:32b; 2:20-23RevelationJohn 18:28-38John 18:1-20:18GOING FARTHEREaster Service with Franklin Graham and Michael W.

I feel like God’s teaching me to use this time to draw closer to Him and to be more intentional about studying the Bible with my family. My grandfather Billy Graham taught me and all of his grandchildren and children the power of Scripture when life is calm and when it’s turned upside down. In this episode of Fearless, I share some of what I’ve learned from him, my grandmother and my parents about the importance of knowing God’s Word.Scripture ReferencedDeuteronomy 6:6-9Philippians 4:8-9Genesis 1Romans 3:23Luke 19:41-46Matthew 19:4Psalm 46Psalm 62:5Going FartherBilly Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/Billy Graham Radio -- https://billygraham.org/tv-and-radio/radio/Billy Graham Rapid Response Team -- https://billygraham.org/what-we-do/evangelism-outreach/rapid-response-team/deployments/related/Samaritan’s Purse -- https://www.samaritanspurse.org/The Gospel Alphabet -- https://static.billygraham.org/sites/billygraham.org/uploads/pro/sites/2/2020/03/ABC-Gospel-Bookmark-PDF.pdfAnne Graham Lotz, Daily Light -- https://www.annegrahamlotz.org/category/daily-light/www.billygraham.org/findingpeaceBilly Graham Messages:Billy Graham’s 9/11 Message from the Washington National Cathedral -- https://billygraham.org/audio/address-at-natl-day-of-prayer-and-remembrance/Why I Am an Optimist -- https://billygraham.org/audio/why-i-am-an-optimist-2/Living on Death Row -- https://billygraham.org/audio/living-on-death-row/John 3:16 -- https://billygraham.org/audio/john-316-2/Facebook Pages:Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Many will know her as the wife of Jeremy Camp – but what you may not know is that she was a successful musician herself before marrying Jeremy. Adie is strong and beautiful and an inspiration to me in how she balances being a wife and mother during a busy season of life. We sat down during my dad’s Decision America Tour and had a chance to talk about marriage, kids, anxiety, and God’s grace and love.

Show NotesMost Christians would take a stance as pro-life. But are you able to stand on a platform and discuss what you believe and why you believe it? This week marks the 47th anniversary of Roe vs Wade. Abortion is such a controversial topic, with far-left Democrats going so far as saying they would murder newborn babies. We need to be able to defend our position on why the sanctity of life is so important. Listen to my new Fearless episode, where I address this polarizing topic and discussing how to have a conversation as a Christian and in a secular world about why abortion goes against God’s Word. The 47th March for Life is this Friday in Washington D.C. and in cities across the country. Let’s continue to pray for this nation and our leaders as many are taking a strong stand on this subject.Scripture Referenced•1 Peter 3:15•Genesis 1:26-27•Psalm 106:38•Jeremiah 1:5•Luke 1:41-44•Psalm 139:13-16Going Farther•March for Life: www.marchforlife.org•Family Research Council: www.frc.org•The Elephant in the Room - ABFBoone.com: abfboone.com/elephant-in-the-room/•J.K.

Show NotesIt’s 2020 – an election year. Many people think Christians should not speak about politics. I disagree. It is our responsibility as Christians to address issues from a biblical perspective. I’ve traveled the world through my work with Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and seen countries where people don’t have the have the right to vote or have a voice on politics. We have the right and responsibility many others do not, so it’s up to us to learn—to gain knowledge that’s available at our fingertips—on the issues and candidates to make informed decisions about issues. Today I am talking about this and how I believe we not only should, but also need to, engage in political and religious conversation – remembering to have those conversations full of grace, truth and love.Scripture Referenced•Luke 19:41-44•Proverbs 16:16•Matthew 5:13-16•John 15:18-25•Matthew 10:34•Romans 13•Jeremiah 29•1 Timothy•Exodus 18:21Going FartherAPP: Calvary Church – Skip Heitzig https://apps.apple.com/us/app/calvary-abq-with-skip-heitzig/id529608062?ls=1Skip Heitzig: Christians and Politics – Jeremiah 29:1-13 http://www.calvaryabq.org/teachings_view.asp?ServiceID=4109Billy Graham’s Answer – Should the Church get involved in politics?https://billygraham.org/answer/should-the-church-get-involved-in-politics/Billy Graham on God, Politics, and the Gospel - https://billygraham.org/audio/billy-graham-on-god-politics-and-the-gospel/4 Truths from Franklin Graham About Prayer and Politics - https://billygraham.org/story/4-truths-from-franklin-graham-about-prayer-and-politics/ Two Reasons Why Religion and Politics Cannot Be Separated - https://billygraham.org/story/two-reasons-why-religion-and-politics-cannot-be-separated/

The last few years have been difficult for me in trying to find balance – of being a wife first, then a mom, and doing the work I feel like God has called me to do – all while honoring God.
