I’d like to thank you for coming to our website to find out more about “Blessings from the Heart” A Woman’s Legacy. In our brief moments together, I’d like to share with you a little of my background and what led me to encourage others in this legacy ministry.
My Passion: The first thing I’d like for you to know is that I’m the proud father of seven children. Nothing I have ever done or will ever do compares with the joys of being called Daddy and Father to these precious ones. I’m passionate about only a few things in life and being a good father is at the top of my list.
My Background: Having spent 30 years in the Christian film business, the Lord has allowed me to produce and distribute hundreds of films and videos. We have received just about every major educational award that can be won through our In Search of the Heroes collection (www.graceproducts.com), including two television Emmys. During these many years, my company, Grace Products, has worked directly with over 85,000 churches and 40,000 public schools and libraries.
How did Blessings from the Heart come about? Six years ago I lost my father to Alzheimer’s. Shortly after his death, I found myself alone in my garage staring at his old rusty fishing equipment that I had somehow inherited. At that moment, I was overcome with feelings of anger and hurt. Angry at my father, at God, and myself, I found myself asking the questions that many of you may have asked, “Why couldn’t my father tell me he loved me? Why couldn’t we have been closer? Why couldn’t you have given me a father like _______?” I was saddened by the fact that I did not possess even a signature from my father.
At that moment, a haunting question came to my mind and it went something like this: “Greg, if you were to die today, what would your kids hold in their hands tomorrow that would let them know that they were the treasures of your life? As I pondered that piercing question, I had to sadly answer…NOTHING, just like my father left me NOTHING.
Shortly after this garage event, I called twelve of my closest friends and asked them to go with me on a journey I was calling Letters from Dad. It was during our months together that God revealed a marvelous plan whereby we could leave a legacy of faith, hope and love through the lost art of letter writing. Upon completion of our time together every one of these Godly men told me that it was one of the most significant events of their lives.
These twelve men were so excited about what had happened in their families, they invited their closest friends to a dinner and asked me to come and share the vision. To my amazement over 120 men came to this dinner and during the next few months I led this group through the Letters from Dad process. Upon completion of that semester the men again held a big dinner but this time over 250 men showed up. At the third dinner we had over 750 men present. It was after the third semester that we knew God was doing something that needed to be shared with the rest of the country. To date over 15,000 men have been through the Letters from Dad adventure.
Shortly after Letters from Dad became national we began receiving requests for a ladies version. Actually it was more like a demand, women everywhere were sensing the need to go on this journey of a lifetime. I am glad to announce that it is finally here and “Blessings from the Heart” A Women’s Legacy is spectacular! It will reach to the very soul of what it means to be used by God and bless the world around you. Come, join with thousands of other women across the country, and experience the power of BLESSING!
Blessings to YOU,
Founder and President
