Between prepping for the week ahead, getting last-minute chores done, your job and your kids’ sports schedules, keeping a true day of rest every week can be hard. And how important is it, really?

The Bible says it’s very important to set aside one day a week for resting and honoring the Lord. Culture, on the other hand, has redefined what a day of rest should look like.

On this episode I talk about some of the rea...

We warn our kids to always be careful about what they’re looking at, what they do, and how they behave. But how do we as parents navigate that when it comes to our own screen time – not only what we’re watching but how much time we’re spending watching it?

As screens have become present everywhere in our culture, it’s important to remember that time is a precious gift from God. It’s our responsibility to use our time in s...

When culture denies reality, chaos and confusion are at large. And that’s what we are seeing today with the transgender ideology that’s getting pushed into all aspects of society—from drag queen story time, to spokespeople for major brands, to the havoc it’s wreaking in athletics. It’s an agenda that’s affecting our children and families, and even permeating into decisions and guidance from government and medical professionals.

Is seeking a therapist a new fad? There are seasons in life where we need to seek godly counsel to help us navigate through the trauma and challenges of life. However, I’ve seen a trend of people seeking therapy with no end goal; and sometimes even treating their therapist as a paid-for best friend.

On this new episode of #Fearless, I’ve invited some dear friends who helped me in a difficult season of life and through iss...

 Love has become the greatest stumbling block to many Christians, because we have used “love our neighbors as ourselves” as an excuse not to share the Gospel. This applies particularly towards the LGBT community.

We all know and love someone in the LGBT community – someone with whom we don’t think we can be honest and share the Truth with. But we as Christians need to remember that we can stand in truth and love at the sa...

The topic of race has escalated in the last few years and seems to have permeated every aspect of our society. Race and racial reconciliation is a topic some like to discuss and a topic some would like to ignore—but we in the church cannot ignore it. 

We need to ask how should we as the church be talking about racism and racial reconciliation? I’ve brought in Monique Duson, co-founder of the Biblical Center for Unity, who has spent ...

Do you ever feel inadequate for the task God has put before you? Today, on the first new Fearless episode of 2023, I’m sharing struggles I’ve faced and I want to remind you what's important: It's not who you are, but it's who you belong to.

I belong to God. And when you belong to God that changes everything.

Your calling isn’t about whether you are able, but it's rather, are you available?

If you’ve been following me on social media, you may have seen that I posted a video about losing a bet and getting pregnant. As Paul Harvey famously said, “and here’s the rest of the story.”

I didn’t tell the world my struggle: I battled anxiety and depression throughout my pregnancy.

On this episode of Fearless, I share about my recent challenges and about a God who pierces darkness with light. While I have con...

Growing up, Santa was never a debate in my family.  

On this episode, I talk about why we chose to “believe” in Santa—and why we still do.

Cohabitation has become the new normal--even inside the church. Think about it, how many people do you know that out of convenience or any other reason have lived together before marriage? We’ve become so desensitized that we may not even recognize it as an issue at first. How harmful can it be to stay in the same room over the holidays or on a weekend trip? 

On this episode of “The Elephant in the Room” series, I’m discussing how c...

Politics can be a divisive subject. Out of fear, some pastors completely avoid the topic from their pulpits.  

On this episode of “The Elephant in the Room” series, I discuss how a church can find a healthy balance of discussing political issues without forsaking the Gospel. I have a conversation with Gary Hamrick, pastor of Cornerstone Chapel in Leesburg, Virginia, who found himself in the middle of the cultural and political battl...

Today, I’m talking about the topic I usually get the most pushback from on social media – Halloween. Although Halloween typically brings around candy and costumes, it can raise many questions for Christians.

Should we allow our kids to dress up? Should we hand out candy? 

On this episode of Fearless, I share my family’s perspective—and what my grandmother, Ruth Bell Graham, thought about the holiday.

Is drinking alcohol beneficial or is it a stumbling block to the believer? In recent years, there’s been a greater acceptance of drinking within the church.

As we continue the “Elephant in the Room” series, I talk about this controversial topic and share my own experience.

I hope this episode encourages you to seek God’s wisdom on difficult issues.

My family and I have called Fort Myers home for more than a decade. Although we evacuated ahead of Hurricane Ian, the devastating effects from the storm are very personal to us, as many of our friends, neighbors and family have suffered damage and loss. Today on Fearless, I am sharing a bit of the personal side of what I have experienced first-hand after Hurricane Ian and how Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Rapid Response Te...

I have noticed many red flags in a number of churches today. What should the church actually look like? 

During the first episode of our fall series, “The Elephant in the Room,” I identify some of the issues I’ve seen inside churches today and what I believe to be the church’s greatest stumbling block.

Fearless is back from its summer break, and in this new episode I share with you something that God continually laid on my heart throughout the summer. 

While serving with Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, I was reminded of one thing—the importance of keeping our eyes focused on the cross—especially as we face opposition in our culture or challenges in life.  

I’m also excited to tell you a little bit a...

Welcome back to the ‘Summer Encore’ series of Fearless! This week we’re returning to an episode with someone who is one of the greatest influences in my life, someone 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...

The ‘Summer Encore’ series of Fearless returns with another one of my favorite episodes – 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 i...

For the second episode of the Fearless ‘Summer Encore’ series, I wanted to feature one of my favorite guests who I get to serve  with while I’m in Alaska with Samaritan’s Purse. 

“Nerves of steel.” That’s how many people described Tammie Jo Shults in 2018 after she landed a Southwest Airlines plane that had lost an engine. But even before that fateful day, Tammie Jo had a fearless faith that took her from a farm in Texas to being on...
