Gary Fox has been married to his high school sweetheart Sheree for 22 years. The Lord has blessed them with four children. Gary has been ministering to children in church for over 15 years and is currently the Children’s minister at Southside Baptist Church in Troy, Alabama. Gary always enjoys telling what he refers to as “modern day parables” for children. These earthly stories with heavenly meanings are fun stories with a Christian principle to be learned. Gary says there is no substitute for sharing stories straight from scripture and knows God’s word to be complete in its entirety.
Gary has always enjoyed drawing and painting. He has painted wall murals in nurseries, football stadiums, places of business, and anywhere someone will let him unleash his creative spirit. He is a guy that loves his sports, especially watching his children, but also receives enjoyment from working on a scrapbook, redecorating a room, or some other creative task. Gary hopes to have many more stories published.
