    Billy Graham has impacted my life by bringing me closer to my heavenly father. I listen to his videos often. Many years ago I attended a crusade and I was impacted then and continue to be impacted by him. I wish I had attended more of his crusades.

    1. Joyce says:

      I did a report/presentation on Billy Graham in Middle School and I found out about how he was a man of faith. During hard times in my life I’ve listened to and referred to his blog for answers to questions that I had. I believe God used him in my life to keep me in the faith and on the right track. His ministry has impacted my entire family through Samaritans Purse by giving my mom a job and she was so extremely blessed while working there. Through Billy Graham’s legacy, Anne Graham Lotz has also been such a blessing in my own life through some difficult seasons.

      1. Charlotte Fisher says:

        Billy Graham was a fascinating individual. I am in awe of his accomplishments. I can’t wait to see his family continue his incredible legacy.

      2. Patricia Wisniewski says:

        Everyone has various trials and difficulties in their lives, but it’s “how” we each face these difficult times, that will determine how we can overcome and conquer these trials. My “how” is the sermons, books, and daily prayers of Billy Graham. I am very grateful for the opportunity given me thru Billy to learn more and more about Jesus Christ. It was a turning point in my life, when listening to the many sermons of Billy Graham, that I declared Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Thank you Billy Graham!!

  2. Clifford Amhenrior says:

    Billy was and is still a blessing to our generation.

  3. Candace Keeney says:

    I accepted Christ when I was 9 years old. We didn’t go to church, but Mom got your monthly newsletter. I looked forward to it and read it little on up. I also watched him on tv. He was an important part in my growth in Christ

  4. Marlene Williams says:

    Billy Graham changed my life to follow Jesus as a young girl at age 14, and he continued to make an impact throughout my life.
    So grateful for his ministry.

  5. Sue Knox says:

    When I was 7 years old I watched Billy Graham on the tv and gave my life to Christ. I took many wrong turns in my life but I always knew Jesus loves me because Billy Graham said he does and I believed him and his message. I can say because Jesus never gave up on me due to Billy Graham messages of hope and grace and mercy that I have always came back to Jesus! Today I can say I have totally surrendered to Jesus and it’s all because I heard the message through Billy Graham!
    Thank you Mr. Graham for being a wonder messenger of God!

  6. Alayne says:

    Growing up, my family prayed daily for Billy Graham and his ministry. If a crusade was on television, no other programs were even considered. I once had the opportunity to meet him in Fort Worth, Texas and felt so privileged. His sincerity, commitment, and consistency made such an impact.

  7. Raju Chindam says:

    I can see many preachers in this world but I believe Billy Graham followed the truth, preached truth truthfully and powerfully, and by that only God changed many lives.

  8. Sherry Smith says:

    It was my Mama’s faith that showed me the tremendous love of God. She loved the Lord and talked passionately about God’s call on Billy Graham. As a Christian teenager I attended a Billy Graham Crusade in Atlanta, Ga. with other teens & my Mama, & other adults from my church. What an powerful impact this Crusade had on me; the tremendous crowds of people, the music, and God’s message! Billy Graham’s message was only Jesus’ love for us, His sacrifice of His life on the cross, His resurrection, and Life Eternal! Through his life and in his death Billy Graham preached Jesus. Thank you! I’m eager to visit! God bless!

  9. Kim Lee says:

    Billy Graham was an inspiration in the way he lived out the Great Commission. I can remember so many times watching his crusades on TV with my family and they had a profound impact on us all.

  10. Eric Rodriguez says:

    Dr. Billy Graham became a crucial focal point in my life at a time when a certain impassioned style of truth was needed; one he was so divinely gifted at delivering. I was at a very difficult crossroad in my life which although my heart and soul craved for scriptural truth, my attention ability to search the scriptures for answers seemed too daunting. It was then that a Netflix message “My Hope for America” caught my attention and his message broke through the walls of my heart in such a powerful way. His gift for the message still radiated in his eyes and it felt as if he spoke directly to me. I followed his prayer at the conclusion of the program and today, I’m the Superintendent for the Chaplain Corps in the Air National Guard. TY! 🙂

  11. Charlotte Fisher says:

    After watching a documentary on Billy Graham, I became enthralled with his teaching and his life. I am fascinated with his impact on the world and what a profound individual he was. He was a true inspiration!

  12. Tiffanie Wallace says:

    Mr. Graham has been a great inspiration for me and my family.

  13. ronnie horn says:

    Billy graham is a great pastor

  14. Sonia. Malone says:

    I remember as a little girl my mother got a little TV just so we could listen to the Gospel. I say it was about two great men, Pastor Oral Roberts and Pastor Billy Graham. I would sit there and listen. I believe when I listened to these men my life began to change, but especially when Pastor Billy Graham came on. He preached that we must be saved and that Jesus invites us to come as we were. It did not matter who you were, He says just come as you are. I don’t know if I surrendered at that young age but I feared God. Throughout my life I would listen to him. One year he came to Puerto Rico to preach and they telecast it into St. Thomas Lionel Robert Stadium. By then I had already accepted Jesus as my Savior so I volunteered to work with the team. I was so blessed.
