Rated the No. 1 thing to do in Charlotte on TripAdvisor, the Library offers a unique experience for the whole family. Guests who visit the Library can experience the interactive Journey of Faith tour—which highlights the message of hope that Billy Graham preached for more than 80 years—as well as the Graham Brothers Dairy Bar, Ruth’s Attic bookstore, the Graham family homeplace, the memorial prayer garden, and more.

Each chapter features a verse of Scripture, a funny or poignant story about Southern culture—with a devotional tie-in to bless your day or make you think—a prayer, and questions to help you deepen your relationship with God.

“Our Daily Biscuit” will be available for purchase in the Ruth’s Attic bookstore, or you may bring your own copy. One of the items for signing must be a copy of “Our Daily Biscuit.”
