Episode 50: Legacy Series—Facing Fear With an Eternal Perspective

June 8, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch

It’s easy to get anxious or fearful about what’s going on in culture—not only for ourselves but for our children. This happened to me recently, and then I listened to a few of my grandfather, Billy Graham’s, messages. Daddy Bill’s sermons reminded me of the importance of having a heavenly mindset, especially when it seems chaos is everywhere. So, I decided to do another installment of my Legacy series, in which I share some of the Christian life lessons I learned from my grandfather. And from my grandmother, Ruth Graham, too. This is the 50th episode and two year anniversary of Fearless, so I’ll also talk about how Fearless came about—or, actually, how it almost didn’t.

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.

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.

Episode 52: A World in Chaos – A Conversation with Franklin Graham

August 31, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch, Franklin Graham

Welcome back to Fearless! After a longer than anticipated summer break, I’m excited to continue sharing with you how we can engage the culture with a Fearless faith. Today my guest is my father, Franklin Graham. My family and I have been privileged for the last several years to serve alongside my father’s organization, Samaritan’s Purse, as they minister to military veterans and their spouses in Alaska through Operation Heal Our Patriots (OHOP). Through spiritual refreshment, physical renewal and marriage enrichment, we’ve seen miracles of the heart that only God could do with couples who are struggling in their marriages. I’m so incredibly thankful to be able to witness it and share some of it with you this week. The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association was even able to send police officer couples for two weeks as well, ministering to those who have been wounded serving on the frontlines of our communities’ every day. But this week is heavy. Violence and chaos have engulfed Afghanistan, once again putting the country in the hands of the evil Taliban regime, which provided sanctuary to Osama bin Laden as he and al-Qaeda planned the 9/11 attacks that occurred 20 years ago next month. There’s also the recent earthquake in Haiti and the coronavirus pandemic. When 9/11 happened, my grandfather Billy Graham spoke to the nation at the National Cathedral. As part of his message, he said, “We’ve seen so much that brings tears to our eyes and makes us all feel a sense of anger. But God can be trusted, even when life seems at its darkest.” Billy Graham's 9/11 Message from the Washington National Cathedral Please join with me in lifting our nation and the world up in prayer during this dark time.
