Ruth Graham is the author of many books including the best-selling In Every Pew Sits a Broken Heart and the award-winning Step into the Bible. Her passion is to motivate people by God’s grace and loving acceptance from a place of woundedness to a place of wholeness in Christ. Ruth Graham Ministries seeks to create safe places where people can begin their journey to wholeness in Christ.
As the third child of Ruth and Billy Graham she has her own unique voice addressing critical issues of the 21st Century: the struggle of forgiveness, the value of doubt, loneliness, being single in a couple’s world…
No stranger to heartache, she provides a Biblical perspective as she shares her journey of faith. She points to the faithfulness of God in her own life’s heartache. She is authentic and transparent as she talks about experiencing her spouse’s infidelities, her divorces, her teenage daughter’s pregnancies, another daughter’s struggles with bulimia, and her son’s battle with drugs. She shares the on-going struggle of having a special needs grandchild and the life-threatening disease of her youngest daughter.
She is an experienced conference speaker and Bible teacher. She has appeared on “Good Morning America”, “Fox and Friends” and been interviewed on “Moody Radio” and “Focus on the Family” among others. She contributed to the series, “Divorce Care” and hosted Living Free’s video series on life-controlling issues.
Ruth went back to college at the age of 50 and graduated cum laude in 2000. She spent a year as Major Gifts Officer for her college. For five years she served as the donor relations coordinator for Samaritan Purse and for thirteen years worked in the publishing industry as an acquisitions editor. She has an honorary doctorate of Humane Letters from Eastern University and is ordained by the Cooperative Baptist Church.
Ruth has 3 grown children and 9 grandchildren. She lives in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
Windsor Dienert-Bauders made the choice for life three times. She is a mother of four and knows the issues, hurts and questions surrounding an unplanned pregnancy.
She found herself pregnant at 16. That child, a daughter, was released for adoption. She found herself pregnant again 7 months later and decided to parent that child, a son, though the father was no longer part of the picture. She knows the struggle of single-parenting.
Much later, after being married, she had a little girl. And later found herself pregnant again and was told by her physician that the baby she was carrying would not be “normal”. She was asked if she wanted to carry the baby to term. She chose life. That child, a little boy, still has significant health challenges but is a joy to those who know him.
These perspectives help her identify with a larger audience both young and old. Her message is open and real about her life. She speaks candidly about her two teenage pregnancies while being related to the most famous Protestant religious leader in the world.
While the subject is serious she brings fresh insights and humor, never losing sight of God’s master plan.
She has an associates degree in General Studies from Delaware County Community College with honors and has a license in Real Estate and Insurance.
She contributed to two books with her mother, Ruth Graham, and Sara Dormon: I’m Pregnant, Now What? and So you want to Adopt, Now What?
She is active with her church community, volunteers at crisis pregnancy centers and has offered her home to young girls who are pregnant. Currently, she is a student at Liberty University online while working for her husband’s photography business as office manager.
Windsor and her husband, Todd Bauders, a professional photographer, live in the Philadelphia area. She is the granddaughter of Evangelist Billy and Ruth Bell Graham.
She has experience speaking locally and internationally and has appeared on Good Morning America.
