Remembering Ruth

She was a remarkable Christian woman. The daughter of missionaries. A preacher's wife (make that the preacher's wife). The mother of prodigals. The author or co-author of 14 books. A guest of national leaders. A recipient with her husband, Billy, of a Congressional Gold Medal. A woman of outspoken humility and unshakable faith.

Ruth Bell Graham died at her home in North Carolina yesterday, surrounded by her husband of 63 years and their five children. She was 87. Today's Christian Woman ran a cover interview with Ruth in our November/December 1991 issue. And we similarly featured her daughter Anne Graham Lotz in 2003.

Ruth's husband, Billy Graham, founded TCW sister publication Christianity Today. Don't miss their coverage of this inspiring woman of faith.

But mostly, we'd like to hear your stories about Ruth Graham. Through her books, her words, her life, how did she inspire you? Share with us as we grieve with the Grahams and celebrate the home-going of this remarkable woman of God.
