Taking Kids To See Franklin Graham

My kids are excited and ready to go, because tonight we're heading to Moody Memorial Church in Chicago to see Franklin Graham as he closes out this year's Founders Week for Moody Bible Institute.

Franklin, in case you don't know, is the eldest son of Billy Graham, who is one the most well know Christians of all time. Franklin is also founder and president of Samaritans Purse, a Christian relief organization.

My oldest son, Stephen Josiah, is a huge Billy Graham fan, and has been waiting for this day to come for some time now. This is a great opportunity for me and my four oldest children to get some time together and do something that will inspire and encourage them in their faith for years to come.

We'll be leaving early to pick up my Mom and several of my nieces and nephews as well.

If you're in the Chicagoland area, carve out a Friday night and join us up there. Doors open 6pm, with the event beginning at 7:15pm!
