  1. Jeremy Baker says:

    God has really taught me a lot, even just recently, about being the hands & feet of Jesus. Being a Biblical mentor & teacher to kids, so they have someone to look up too & learn from. Giving of myself to others, even if it’s just to listen, pray with them or offer a hug. So many these days are struggling & what a blessing it is when we can see Jesus in one another or shed His light to each other.

  2. Wesley says:

    God is moving in my life mightily. The Lord is leading me back to graduate school to pursue a theology degree. The last year in my life has had some deep valleys but some peaks! I look forward to starting in January and see where the Lord leads me upon completion of the certificate program!

  3. Rodney Smith says:

    Enjoyed our visit to the Billy Graham Library and felt the same inspiration that US Presidents and world leaders had felt, so glad we went.

  4. Mat Zoller says:

    Just trying to remember how to get close to God again.

  5. Michelle Hood says:

    Through His Word, God is teaching me patience. I am learning to wait on the Lord for His perfect will and timing for all things.

  6. Emily Scott says:

    I am 69 years old and Billy Graham has always been a part of my life. So his words are special, and this Bible would be such a treasure.

  7. Lori Loyd says:

    I absolutely love the Billy Graham and Franklin Graham ministry. I live in Fort Mill SC and it’s near the Library. I have visited the library and it’s just beautiful and heart touching. The last part of the tour was just so beautiful that I have no words to make people understand just how beautiful and touching it is. A must see. I would love to win the books. Read NS then pass them forward for my family to read and be touched by.

  8. Julie B says:

    I’ve let other things distract me lately. I need to get back to a more consistent quiet time with Jesus daily.

  9. Karen Pope says:

    God is teaching me His Peace which passes understanding. I am facing challenges in family relationships where I must stand firm on His Truth. This has been difficult for me but I will not disobey God or compromise His Truth. I will trust Him above all. Billy and Ruth Graham have been helping me to stand firm in the Lord for many years through their faithful lives. I am so thankful for them.

  10. Judith Golightly says:

    I lost my first son, Billy, due to cancer when he was five years old. More than thirty years after Billy passed away,I felt that God wanted me to write a book about my experience with Billy to help other families who had lost children. It took over two years to write the book, but I finally finished “Billy’s Story: Every Parent’s Nightmare – The Loss of a Child” and got it published in October 2013. After my book was published I created a Twitter account to let people know about my book. Since then, my Twitter account has become more of a ministry tool than a way to promote my book. The Bible says, “And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15 I hope I am doing that.

  11. Sandra Barton says:

    I just recently got married for the second time. My first husband passed away from stomach cancer. I was devastated. We were given two choices before he passed away. He could have surgery and maybe live a year or not have surgery and live a few months. We chose the surgery and he didn’t even live one month. I blamed myself for making the wrong decision even though his doctor said nobody could predict how long he would live. After he passed I decided I would not remarry and it would be just me and my little pug named Mattea. I think God had different plans for me because after three years I met a man at a friend’s house who is a Christian. We got married after one year and we are very happy serving the Lord together.

  12. Becky Burdick says:

    God is revealing opportunities for me to be of service to others.

  13. Bonnie S says:

    Went to the library for the first time last week. We braved the snow but will be back to see what we missed. Through the bible in a year calendar, I am reading everyday now and trying to remember to pray more often. I hope through this God will prepare me better for His plan and our little family.

  14. Patsy Green says:

    God has been teaching me patience. I have been living 1 Peter 4:12.

    Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

    I have been learning to wait up on the Lord.

  15. Debbie Emery says:

    Becoming my dad’s caregiver after Mom passed away, God has shown me many things about myself. Also as I work with a difficult coworker He has shown me many things. Patience, kindness, forgiveness. He is always with us. Thank you Rev Graham for sharing with the world God’s Word.

  17. Flora Hillgarnter says:

    I recently visited the Billy Graham library and I had a wonderful time and met wonderful people. God is moving mightily these days. I am currently learning to help women that are recovering from substance abuse. I to am in recovery with 1 year and 8 months sober. God is teaching me that I can’t lead them to the Lord myself but through Him I can do anything.

  18. Austin Beavers says:

    The Lord is moving in my life and has really been using me at church through music and helping in children’s church. People are always telling me that they enjoy my singing at church and that they are being blessed and touched by it. I help my Pastor’s wife in Children’s Church every Sunday. I really enjoy it and helping teaching the little Children about Jesus. I enjoy singing for the Lord and working for the Lord.

  19. MJ Roberts says:

    I just celebrated my 20th anniversary!!! My hubby and I have had many challenges but with God’s intervention we have weathered some very rough times and soared through some beautiful times. God is good all the time.

  20. Pamela Mehaffey says:

    No matter how broken people are, there is always hope.

  21. Brian M says:

    Through his teachings continuously showing me how to be a better person.

  22. Blessie Nelson says:

    God is teaching to hold on to Him even when I can’t tangibly feel His presence or see some “breadcrumbs” of His work…its working on my faith.

  23. Landon Surratte says:

    God is teaching me to trust in Him with my college career. I’m battling worry and learning how to trust Him even more.

  24. Jane Allen says:

    Attending a new church with a new praise & worship style, I’m learning Gods given me gifts. I’ve learned that the Holy Spirit is alive and well and living in me! Praise Jesus! My husband and i just celebrated our 20th anniversary! We’ve had trails, tribulations, good and bad times but PRAISE God’s he’s carried us through triumphantly. God is on the move in a mighty way. He & I are visiting the library tomorrow and we look forward to this awesome experience. God bless all!

  25. Jacquelyn S says:

    He is showing us that he loves us through all of the blessings we have received this year. Grandchildren, family members, health and happiness.

  26. Lesa LePage says:

    God has taught me that He is the most amazing and loving Father.
    I’m also learning I can accomplish anything, but I must always follow the Lord’s will.

  27. Tim Johnson says:

    GOD is directing me by faith as always through difficult situations, using me as His instrument both through being a phone line prayer partner and through the gift of words (prophecy) in sharing HIS message as a Christ following novelist.

  28. Barbara McLaughlin says:

    God has taught me that I may make plans of what I want to do in my life, but God may change those plans and show me other things that He has for me to do to bring honor to Him. I had plans for the future until my husband got a brain tumor and God has used us to bring lost souls to Jesus.

  29. Nancy Lewis says:

    God has always been on part of my life and has blessed me with a wonderful upbringing by two fabulous parents who raised 8 kids in the church. I have so many cherished memories! I am further blessed with 2 great kids. Long story, but God worked his miracles in their lives. Had he not, I may have lost them. Praise God!! Thank you for bringing God into your giveaway and reminding us for the reason we celebrate this time of year. God bless you and yours!
