Letter from a Former Inmate
Hello, my name is Desiree. I don't know that you remember me but I cannot forget you. I started doing your Ten Life Choices Correspondence Course in the County jail. In the first lesson, I opened up and let go of a lot of pain. When you wrote back you did not judge me. You let me know that everyone has a past and it is okay. You made me realize I could overcome my past, rise above it and choose life. Eventually I was sentenced to a drug program and sent to the penitentiary. I was not allowed to take your book with me but I did not forget it's contents or your encouraging words.
I was released from prison on February 23, 2015. My book was returned to me and I sit here now reviewing the lessons and realize that I still have a decision to make, I still need to choose lifeâ€¦ everyday. I am choosing to live â€¦ to live in the presentâ€¦ to live day by day, not in my past and because of Jesus, I can. The words that God gave you to share with people everywhere have given me much encouragement.
I know you are a busy man and I want you to know that I appreciate you taking the time to read my lessons and write words of truth to me. God bless.
