NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Ruth Graham knows firsthand how life can
be filled with heartache.
The third of evangelist Billy Graham's five children, she has dealt with a daughter's teen pregnancies, another's bulimia and a son's drug use.
She also struggled with suicidal thoughts after learning that her first husband had been unfaithful, a discovery that led to a second "rebound marriage" lasting only five weeks.
These low points eventually led her in 2004 to form a ministry, Ruth Graham and Friends.
Her ministry's "Get Growing" conferences address troubles such as addiction, depression, eating disorders, marital infidelity, anger, divorce, loneliness and pornography.
