I'm Proud to Present

I am very excited to tell you about a beautiful book just released from Guideposts Books. One of the featured stories is by a friend of ours in Texas. Joe Brillhart and his wife Gayla meet Billy Graham at the Mayo Clinic when Joe's daughter, Traci, was undergoing treatment there. Away From Home is a wonderful story about how a gracious and humble evangelist reached out to a frightened family and encouraged them. I was able to help Joe see his story in print so that others could be encouraged. I hope you will pick up a copy and be blessed as I have been.

Here's the press release from Guideposts:
Led to Believe by Billy Graham (GuidepostsBooks, October 2007) is a collection of this preacher’s own words and beliefs interwoven with stories from real people whose lives were changed by Graham’s message. Here is an insider’s look at the lives of some of the people he touched so deeply.

The personal recollections in this volume show changed hearts, renewed purpose and, as Rev. Graham says, “what God can do with a person.” Reflections come from his wife, Ruth Bell Graham, his daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, a singer/songwriter, a baseball player, a reformed criminal and everyday people. These are the true accounts of people whose lives were impacted by the power of Billy Graham’s ministry. They reveal what happened when Billy Graham led them to listen for God’s voice.

Led to Believe by Billy Graham is divided into six parts such as: What God can do, Where God leads and Living close to God. Each section is filled with accounts about the man who has helped lead millions to live their faith.

This volume is filled with the inspiring words of Billy Graham and others on living by faith. There are essays from Graham himself about his own call to serve as well as some faith-strengthening tips, and a down-to-earth description by Ruth Bell Graham of what it’s like being a preacher’s wife.

And as a tribute to her father, Anne Graham Lotz shares a moment in her teenage life when his love and concern taught her a moving lesson about her heavenly Father.

Me again. This small hardcover book is available in stores and online from Guideposts Books and Amazon. It makes a great gift or an uplifting read. Please check it out.
