Heroes of Faith

As most of you know Lisa and I have raised 6 kids of our own, and have had hundreds of young people come through our lives, some that lived with us for a season. We have always tried to point each one of them to seek out their own faith. Find your “God” and live your life fully alive! One of the most common themes we have seen with this entire generation watching them drowning in apathy and consumed by distraction. Everywhere you look you see people with their heads down and starring at a screen. It doesn’t take...

And so the journey continues…

Most of our lives have hundreds of different seasons to them. Seasons of joy, seasons of sorrow, successes and failures. Circumstances are as never as bad as they seem, and they are never as good as they seem – the hope is that we can embrace every season and let them teach us their lessons… Lisa and I have found that most of our “Learning” or “Wisdom” has come from seasons of pain, loss and failure – seasons of having to live by faith or die.

We have fought for our family, we have clung to our marriage, and we have fought for our faith. Through it all we have never stopped fighting for the next generation. Before we became “Gary and Lisa Black” we were called to reach the broken and hurting, and the day we committed our lives to each other, everything...

Re-Dig.

Re-Dig. If you did not have the chance to read my last blog, please do here. If you did, let’s get to work… As I mentioned in my last blog, life is hard. We have all been given a gift called “Hard Work” to make our own way – to find our own faith, and to learn from the mistakes of a generation before us has made, and to make things and people on this earth, better. We have no way to short-cut this, no way to get around it. The problem is that we have taught you to...
