In the fall of 1937, she enrolled at Wheaton College, outside Chicago, Illinois, and three years later was introduced to Preacher, the nickname other students gave the strapping Billy Graham from Charlotte, North Carolina. The couple began courting, and so also began a struggle in Ruth between what she thought was her calling to the mission field and her blossoming love for the driven young evangelist. In late April 1941 after much struggling in prayer, Ruth realized her lifes mission was to be bound up in Billys passion for evangelism. Shortly after their graduation from Wheaton, the two were married in Montreat on August 13, 1943.
Ruths ministry flourished in the mountains of western North Carolina, where she built the family homestead and raised five children: Virginia (Gigi), Anne, Ruth, Franklin, and Nelson Edman (Ned). Ruth treasured her role as the strong woman behind Americas Pastor and was Billys closest confidant, most trusted adviser, and dearest friend. She loved to move behind the scenes, away from the spotlight, and helped him craft and research sermons and even books.
A gifted poet and writer herself, Ruth authored or coauthored 14 books, including Sitting by My Laughing Fire, Legacy of a Pack Rat, Prodigals and Those Who Love Them, and One Wintry Night.
