  • Ruth Bell Graham, Sitting by My Laughing Fire (World Wide Publications, 1977)I picked this up at a library book sale for a quarter, not realizing that Ruth Bell Graham was the wife of Billy, the original televangelist and one of the most terrifying human beings ever to walk the planet. Once I realized that, and that “World Wide Publications” was essentially a Billy Graham vanity press, I dug into this with the express purpose of making fun of it.

  • I simply love Ruth Bell Graham's poems--much like the writings of Elisabeth Elliot, she captures real moments of our days, as though she were sitting with me, by the laughing fire. A tremendous woman of strength, wit, courage, and, most importantly, of God.


  • Precious book of honest poetry. The thoughts and moments shared by a mother and wife, but best of all, this book helped me see that though a woman fills those roles for a time or for a lifetime, she will always be a woman -- an individual -- experiencing life in many ways alone with her God.


  • I go back to this book of poems often. The pictures are lovely and the poems speak to daily life, doubts and hope. It is serenity itself to curl up with a cup of tea by the fireplace with these poems.


  • I absolutely love this book!!! It is one of my very favorites! Ruth Bell Graham write so beautifully and warmly. I could read her poems over and over again! This is one book I will definitely have to own someday! :)


  • A beautiful book of poems that reflect the life and faith of Ruth. Her poems warm my heart and nurture my love for Christ.


  • Great book of poems by a very inspiring woman. Keeping this book for my collection, but if even of my friends would like to borrow book, I will be glad to lend it out. :)



  • I so love this book! Checked it out from the library several times, received it as a gift this last birthday! Sensational poetry and faith building too!
