Founder and President of Ruth Graham Ministries
Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Billy Graham
Ruth Graham is the author of Fear Not Tomorrow, God is Already There, and the award-winning title, In Every Pew Sits a Broken Heart. She is also the author of Step into the Bible: 100 Bible Stories for Family Devotions. Ruth Graham has a heart for those who face life’s difficult challenges and seeks to minister God’s grace and restoration to those who feel marginalized within the church. She equips others to reach out to the wounded with the love of Christ.
No stranger to heartache, she provides a Biblical perspective as she shares her journey of faith. Warm and articulate, Ruth connects with her audiences by speaking openly about her own pilgrimage through her husband’s infidelities, her divorces, her teenage daughter’s two unplanned pregnancies, her other daughter’s bulimia and her son’s battle with drugs.
Ruth is an experienced conference speaker and Bible teacher. She has appeared on Good Morning America, The Hour of Power, Focus on the Family and Moody Broadcasting.
In 2005 Ruth released Legacy of Love: Things I Learned from My Mother, and in 2006, Legacy of Faith: Things I Learned from My Father, both published by Zondervan.
Ruth is the third child of Ruth and Billy Graham. She graduated cum laude in 2000, and worked in publishing for 13 years as an acquisitions editor and for five years was the Donor Relations Coordinator for Samaritan’s Purse. She spent one year as Major Gifts Officer at Mary Baldwin College. She has an honorary doctorate of Humane Letters from Eastern University.
Ruth has 3 grown children and 8 grandchildren. She lives in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.

“I agree your stories fits perfectly with our vision and aims. The way you tied the right to life until natural death by talking about your dad and Windsor talking about her children was seamless and natural. I thought you were both even more compelling than when I first heard you speak together. Apparently everyone was moved. I can't believe how many first-time donors we picked up. And among our regulars, so many gave gifts greater than any single donation they had ever given."
-Michael Ciccocioppo, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation
"Ruth was delightfully wonderful to work with….she brought our theme for the conference alive….and we were sold out to her messages and wisdom. Our audience held her in the highest of esteem. They felt they had connected with a “Sister in Christ.” It was a genuine connection!"
-Sue Rogers, Lincoln Christian University, Women's Conference
"Ruth and Windsor were WONDERFUL! I cannot say enough good things about the evening and their testimony. They are both remarkable women with a natural gift of transparent, real-life communication. There is not one pretentious bone in either one!!! And I have only heard positive feedback from the community!"
-Life Choces of Central Louisiana
