Jane Graham on Life, Faith, Motherhood and Family

September 21, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch, Jane Graham

Welcome to FEARLESS! This episode is one that I’ve been wanting to capture for a long time. My special guest this week is one of the greatest influences in my life, someone who I want everyone to know, and that’s my mom, Jane Graham. Over the years, so many people have asked questions about my mom. Though she’s Franklin Graham’s wife and Billy Graham’s daughter-in-law, my mother isn’t really one for the spotlight. Her ministry has always been more private and behind the scenes, taking care of our family and serving those around her in our community. I’m so excited that I get to share a little bit of her with you this week. We’re going to talk about her early life, how she met my dad in Montreat, NC, the influence of my grandmother Ruth Bell Graham, her faith, being in ministry and the challenges and joys of motherhood and marriage. I hope that you’re inspired and encouraged as you listen my conversation with my mom. It’s an episode that you’re not going to want to miss.

Are Science and Faith Compatible? Why Eric Metaxas Says Yes

October 19, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch

Show Notes Welcome to FEARLESS! On this episode, I’m talking with New York Times bestselling author and dear friend Eric Metaxas about science, faith, Biblical archaeology and what’s happening in the church and culture. In our conversation, Eric shares some of the incredible discoveries that have been made in the fields of science and archaeology that point to Creation, the Bible’s historical accuracy and, most importantly, the existence of God. It’s all part of his new book, “Is Atheism Dead?” We also talk about the enduring legacy of his book “Bonhoeffer,” and how the story of German pastor and Nazi resistor Dietrich Bonhoeffer continues to resonate with us today. This podcast is a great reminder that we don’t need to be fearful of the times that we live in—nothing has taken God by surprise. So, I hope you enjoy this podcast and are deeply encouraged in your walk with the Lord.

A Fearless Faith Begins with Fear

October 5, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch

Show Notes Welcome to FEARLESS! On this episode, we’re talking about how a fearless faith begins with fear. Over the years, I’ve come to understand that a fearless and sustaining faith can only come when we fear God. But what does it mean to fear? In the simplest terms, it means that we take God seriously. We respect Him, we obey Him, we submit to His discipline and we worship Him in awe. And there is a blessing and peace that comes when we fear the Lord. Proverbs 9:10 tells us that “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” Join me on this episode of FEARLESS as we talk more about my concerns for the Church and what it means to have a faith centered on a foundational understanding that our God is a Holy God who deserves our love, honor, respect and, yes, even our fear.

Special Episode 1 (53) – Edward Graham – A Soldier’s Memories of 9/11 and Afghanistan

September 10, 2021

Welcome to FEARLESS! I’m honored to have my brother Edward Graham as my guest with me for this unique episode of FEARLESS as we remember the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on 9/11 and the recent chaos in Afghanistan. My brother Edward served for 16 years in the military in special operations and was actually at West Point Military Academy on that terrible Tuesday morning. In many ways, his life and so many others were forever impacted by the terrorist attacks and he graduated knowing that he would spend his entire career fighting the war on terrorism. I’m so incredibly thankful for his service, and those of other members of our military. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of September 11, I’ve asked my brother to share about his time in the military, how the terror attacks changed the future of his military career and his thoughts about what is currently happening in Afghanistan. He also shares what Samaritan’s Purse is doing to help and support Afghans in need. If you’re listening to this podcast and you’re struggling with anxiety over the recent news of what’s happening in Afghanistan and around the world, there is hope. Despite the chaos of this world, God is sovereign and none of this took him by surprise. Those listening can call the Billy Graham Prayer Line at 888-388-2683, and someone will pray with you about anything going on in your life.
