Chris Pratt’s Brother is Helping Kids in a Big Way

Cully Pratt, a California police officer and artist, has teamed up with his brother, Hollywood megastar Chris Pratt, to help kids in tough neighborhoods that are plagued by gang activity and education barriers.

Billy Graham’s Grandson Breaks Down the Best Proof of God

Evangelist Will Graham, grandson of the late Rev. Billy Graham, believes that there’s some convincing proof of God — and it all centers on redemption.

We’ve been bought with a price and that price was the blood of Christ on the cross,” Graham told “The Pure Flix Podcast.” “And the proof of it is the resurrection. Christ [did] not just stay in the grace; he came out of the grace to show. ‘All the things I’ve said are true.’”
