    Episode 25: The Gift of Freedom Demands Much from Us in Return

    Episode 25: The Gift of Freedom Demands Much from Us in Return

    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 Reagan

    Today 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.

    Episode 24: Reopening America—The Questions We Should Ask

    Show Notes

    America is approaching the end of quarantine from the coronavirus pandemic and beginning to reopen. 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.

    Episode 23: The Challenges of Being a Mom

    SHOW NOTES

    As we get ready to celebrate Mother’s Day, I’ve been thinking about some of the special women in my life, especially my mom and grandmother Ruth Graham. I’m thankful for everything they’ve taught me and how it’s helped me as a mom.

    In this episode of Fearless, I’m going to share some of their Biblical wisdom, a few stories and even some audio of my grandmother.

    Episode 22: Satan’s Lies in Quarantine

    SHOW NOTES

    During this season of sheltering in place, Satan has tried to whisper to me that my worth and value are based only on the things I’m no longer able to do. Maybe he’s tried to tell you the same lies.

    In this episode of Fearless, I talk about the importance of using Scripture to stay focused on the truth of God. I also look at sweet reminders from the Bible that Jesus meets you right where you are.

    Episode 21: Easter's Light in the Darkness

    SHOW NOTES

    This Easter is not going to look like previous Easters. 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.

    Episode 20: Legacy Series–The Power of Scripture in Life’s Storms

    Show Notes

    A lot of us have more time at home right now, because of the COVID-19 quarantines. 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.

Sacrifice

I so look forward to your new episodes! This last one about honoring the brave soldiers who sacrifice all for our freedoms was one of my favorites. Thank you. My family and I spent a few extra minutes in prayer and song as we remembered the fallen this year. We read a short list of soldiers who’ve died this year in combat and listened to Taps. Thanks for the inspiration and nudge to do something out of our ordinary today.

Thankful

I am so very thankful I stumbled upon this pod cast. As a mother of grown children and older than you I didn’t know if I would be able to relate. This pod cast is enlightening and encouraging. I am a Christian and have through the years followed and read books from your Grandfather and Father. I have always trusted this family to help me find the truth in the scriptures. If I am struggling to find the answers I know I can find them with your families help. Cissie you spoke of your Mother and Grandmother as being humble but you are also. Thank you for your honesty. Christians are not perfect but we do know the one who is. Please continue this ministry, I look forward to it. I will be praying for you also.

Fills my soul

You fill my soul with your podcast messages. You are continuing to carry on your Granddad and dad's mission. You have been blessed with the same gifts to deliver the gospel. Thank you for your inspirational messages. I send your podcasts to my family, friend group, and ministry team at our church. Thank you for the sacrifices Samaritans Purse does across the world to deliver God's message!! God bless you, Cissie.
