Mother's Day in Prison

TOGETHER.
WE CAN HELP SHAPE THE FUTURE of MOMs & KIDS

Friends, I received the following letter yesterday from a mom at the God of Hope faith dorm in Lockhart prison where I spoke in January.

Dear Hill Country Ministries,

My name is Mendy & I'm in prison at Lockhart, Tx. Mrs. Williams came to our Faith Based Dorm a few months back, and she had quite an impact on folks here, her book is real talk. I'm indigent here I have no family they all have died. I was adopted and don't know them either. What I would like to ask, is if you could send me that journal she wrote up. It will be for my kids to let them know that every day I thought about them, loved, & missed them very very much. So now I've been with the Lord almost 3 yrs. In this Faith Based Dorm and I just got a year before I get out. See I would just like to have something nice to give to them when I get out to reassure them of my love, & that I would never give up on them & that I would always be their mother and well I was just reading her book and was moved to write her. Williams book is & does help to guide & direct us just like we ask God to do, & He sent us her book.(Pray with Purpose, Live with Passion.)

I hope and pray I hear from you soon.

FRIENDS, needless to say, I'm zipping to the post office and putting Prayers of My Heart prayer journal in the mail to her!

But, her letter prompted me to realize that moms on the "outside" of prison have so many opportunities to read Christian parenting books. Those on the "inside" don't. So, I would love to send moms in the prison where I spoke The Plan A MOM in a Plan B World for MOTHER'S DAY.

This is short notice. But, I just received her letter and the nudging in my heart was so strong, I thought I'd see if we could pull this off.

Heavenly Father, 

Thank you for the opportunity to DO SOMETHING rather than just wring our hands at the state of our families. May each book IMPACT a mom for Christ. Then use her to IMPACT her children! In Jesus's name, Amen.
