Ross Graham is married to Mitch (Mirjana). They have retired to a bush block to enjoy and be reminded of God’s greatness through His amazing creation.
Early in their marriage they were privileged to come under inspired biblical preaching and by God’s Holy Spirit were led to understand the grace of God in salvation through faith alone, in Christ alone, as a free gift of God.
They have spent the rest of their lives trying to mine the depths of these precious truths and live their lives in thankful, grateful response to them, while raising their family and seeking fellowship with and encouraging others within the family of God.
