Unfortunately, like many people who travel for any kind of entertainment or speaking engagements, there is a sacrifice being made to your home and family life. Graham was not present for the birth of his first child. He credits his wife in his autobiography stating: ““What I missed and what Ruth missed by not having me to help her. Whenever I did get home, I got a crash course in the agony and ecstasy of parenting.
