Q&A with Billy Graham Adapted from the Foreword to Treasured Moments with Mother Graham

Mothers have a profound influence on their children, including those children who impact their world profoundly as Billy Graham has done. Now readers can see inside the dynamic faith of Billy Graham’s mother, Morrow Coffey Graham, known as “Mother Graham,” in a new devotional book.

“The influence of a mother upon the lives of her children cannot be measured,” writes Billy Graham. “They know and absorb her example and attitudes when it comes to questions of honesty, temperance, kindness, and industry.”

For the last two years of Mother Graham’s life, Rose Adams was the daily caregiver for Mother Graham, providing physical care and companionship. But Adams never dreamt the profound impact Mother Graham would have on her spiritually. Writes Adams in the preface:

“When I arrived at the Graham home in September 1979, Mother Graham welcomed me as a friend, not a caregiver. I embraced her not as an invalid (for she was still mobile), but a mother and a teacher. Whenever she had visitors and prayed for them, she ended her prayers by saying, ‘Precious Father, may all those who enter our home be blessed.’ I certainly was.”

Adams decades later would visit Billy Graham, telling him stories and memories of Mother Graham and how every conversation would lead back to God and the Bible. Billy Graham asked Rose Adams to put these recollections together in a book, knowing many readers would draw comfort and strength by seeing how one younger woman learned so much from an older one. This devotional is perfect for anyone who is a mother, a caregiver or who is facing the last days of life.
