One thing I have found to be true is the misconception some have about people who are locked-up. That is unless you have a loved one or yourself who has been behind bars. For those of you who are not in either category here's a secret...they are human beings just like you. They love, laugh and live. They get sad, mad and have issues just like the rest of the world.
I work with the ladies who are currently or have been in the Plus Program (Purposeful Living Units Serve). PLUS is a faith and character-based re-entry initiative. The focus is on strengthening spiritual, moral, and character development as well as life skills. This program is voluntary and shows (for most) they are ready for a positive change.

Its been well over a year now since the Lord has allowed me to mentor ladies at the prison. I stand in awe at the way He orchestrates each situation, conversation and actions of all who are involved. I don't know whats in the hearts and minds of these ladies when they come to me, but He does. I find that its important to them that you are committed to come on a regular basis. In doing so you build trust which is the first step of getting to the real issues they are dealing with.
