Through My Father s Eyes

Through My Father s Eyes

“Ruth and I have said goodbye many times in our life together,” my father wrote. ... 1 It may seem a little strange, then, to say that as a boy I lived many exciting moments through my father's eyes, since he was gone so much.

USA Today Bestseller List. Many have written about Billy Graham, the evangelist. This is the first book about Billy Graham, the father, written from the perspective of a son who knew him best. As a beloved evangelist and a respected man of God, Billy Graham’s stated purpose in life never wavered: to help people find a personal relationship with God through a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. This was a calling that only increased over time, and Billy embraced it fully throughout his active ministry and beyond. Yet Billy pursued his life’s work, as many men do, amid a similarly significant calling to be a loving husband and father. While most people knew Billy Graham as America’s pastor, Franklin Graham knew him in a different way, as a dad. And while present and future generations will come to their own conclusions about Billy Graham and the legacy that his commitment to Christ has left behind, no one can speak more insightfully or authoritatively on that subject than a son who grew up in the shadow of his father’s life and the examples of his father’s love. This vulnerable book is a look at both Billy Graham the evangelist and Billy Graham the father, and the impact he had on a son who walked in his father’s steps while also becoming his own man, leading ministries around the world, all of it based on the foundational lessons his father taught him. “My father left behind a testimony to God,” says Franklin, “a legacy not buried in a grave but still pointing people to a heaven-bound destiny. The Lord will say to my father, and to all who served Him obediently, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant’ [Matthew 25:21].”

Time and the way we use it are central to the story and cast of characters in Through My Father's Eyes. Will two weeks be enough time to influence the mind and spirit of a writer who could spend the rest of his life on San Francisco's skid row? Evan Howard is a hard-working alcoholic journalist who has destroyed every connection he has with the human race, and whose career is now collapsing. His addiction has left him deaf and blind to the reality of his family history, particularly to understanding the legacy of his deceased mother. A collision and its crippling aftermath conspire with Evan's friends to teach Evan the greatest lesson of his life. But will this give him inner peace and will he discover how to love again in the process? Time alone will tell the tale as Evan is challenged to heal and become the person others knew he could be. Author Linda Meyerholz is a licensed mental health counselor in Florida. Each character in her book is a composite of people she has known, worked with or observed during 27 years of monitoring recovery programs. She is already working on the sequel to this novel and is eager to discover how writer Evan Howard will behave as he begins life anew, this time sober.

She becomes reliant on the media for any information regarding his mission. Her visions and dreams of war become so entangled with her daily life that she is not sure where the boundaries of reality lie. When Osi returns, his experiences in Iraq confirm to Pip that her dreams and visions are a spiritual gift. His return is short lived. Throughout her journal Pip uses songs and poetry to entwine her dreams with stories of her life in the Borders, travel, visits with her old friend Milton and Jacquie who has cancer.
