Called to Change, more than a Prison Ministry

Comments

Hi Ladies! I wanted to share my big excitement this morning. My first novel is now a real thing! It is officially available for preorder through Amazon. A Firm Place to Stand is about forgiveness--giving it as well as allowing ourselves to receive it. And it is now in God's hands to use as He will. Please pray with me that it makes a difference to at least one person! #liveforgiven
I'm so excited to be adding a "splash of pink" to my professional profile on behalf of the "women in white"!

A Warrior Arises, giving thanks ... http://bit.ly/2KOrLep #fruit #laborisnotinvein So now, beloved ones, stand firm and secure. Live your lives with an unshakable confidence. We know that we prosper and excel in every season by serving the Lord, because we are assured that our union with the Lord makes our labor productive with fruit that endures. 1 Cor. 15:58
WHAT IS HOLINESS IN SIMPLE EXPLANATION. Holiness is the nature and character of God manifested to us through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Holiness. Holiness, or Sanctification is the process of God's grace sanctifying (making holy) a person who was justified and regenerated (1 Cor. 6:11; Titus 3:5). Holiness or Sanctification is God's perfect will for all Christians (Rom.12:1-2; 1Thes.4:1-7). God ordained His people to bear fruit, and this includes maturity through sanctification. Holiness is BOTH consecration to God and separation from the world and all sins, it is always a command by God to man (Titus 2:11-12; 1 Peter 1:15-16; Matthew 5:48; 2Cor.5:17). Without Holiness, no man shall see the Lord (Mat.5:8; Heb.12:14; Rev. 22:10-12). God requires Holiness better than spiritual gifts, and is actually the basis of God's moving in the life of a person or church (Joshua 3:5; Matthew 7:21-23). Holiness is both partaking of God's divine nature through the Holy Ghost (2 Peter 1:4), and the actual decision of man to submit to God's control (Rom.12:1). Therefore, a Christian is expected to leave sin and worldliness in pursuit of God's holiness. Separation from sin, wickedness, and worldliness is both a principle of Holiness and a command to obey (2 Cor.6:14-18; James 4:4; 1 John 2:15-16). If a Christian is truly living in the principles of the Bible concerning Holiness, then he will practically obey the standards of God's Word that pertains to holy, righteous, and godly living which includes moral standards, standards of godly clothing and adornment, and prohibition of worldly lifestyles and fashion. Holiness affects all areas and aspects of our lives, including our thoughts, words, actions, dress, lifestyles, relationships, and our outlook in life. In short, Holiness is both inward transformation toward Christ-like character and outward transformation that is different from the ways of the world and unbelievers. That's Holiness.
What do a cave, a whisper, and destiny have in common? They all scream, get some rest!
"It is both the series of circumstances and life events that wound our tender hearts. Is it any wonder they require a series of encounters with God to heal." - Coach Adams

Our mission is to inspire life transformation, encourage family restoration, and heal communities. We are all "called to change", that we might become the living testimony. 2 Cor. 3

Whether in the crux of change brought on by incarceration, hospitalization, marriage or separation, our goal is to serve as conduits for change through the expression of God’s unconditional love and acceptance, leading others to a future filled with hope. Our principles are based on II Cor. 3:18 CJB So all of us, with faces unveiled, see as in a mirror the glory of the Lord; and we are being changed into his very image, from one degree of glory to the next, by Adonai the Spirit.

Mission: OUR VISION - To see lives, families, and communities changed for the glory of God. OUR MISSION - To inspire life transformation, encourage family restoration, and build community through leadership, education, and living life by example.

Sometimes God presses words into my head when I'm least expecting them. Half way through the shampooing yesterday...

There is only one race—the human race. And there are saints and sinners in every shade. Not the color of my skin, but how I choose to wear it determines which one I am. Am I walking in grace and mercy, love and humility? The heart of a man is to be considered above all else.

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
-Martin Luther King Jr.
.
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” Heb 11:6

Falsely imprisoned for 37 years, Archie Williams is here and his voice is heard. His second chance begins on America's Got Talent this Tuesday 8/7c on NBC.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE AND YOUR SACRIFICE

For the greatest love of all is a love that sacrifices all.
And this great love is demonstrated
when a person sacrifices his life for his friends.
JOHN 15:13

May we never forget to give honor to whom honor is deserved.

Let faith arise ... before the need.
.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the assurance of what can’t be seen. Heb. 11:1
.
Yet we reach for faith when what we see opposes our hope. This should not be. Is it then possible that what we see is based on the measure of faith within?
.
If we don’t like what we see, it’s time for a renewal of Faith. It’s time to reflect on mission, and every time it was opposed and yet went forward in purpose. It’s time to remember the rescue, each one. Faith comes by hearing and hearing (with our own ears) by the Word (our own testimonies). Rom 10:17
.
Would you consider posting just one overcoming outcome as a comment to let Faith arise?

Thank you to all of our military spouses. Your personal sacrifice and solid support of family and soldier are unprecedented. Without you, they could not fulfill their mission, and our nation would not thrive. Thank you! God bless you and yours.

Texas Department of Criminal Justice

Restoring dignity through offering opportunities.

With an unprecedented need at hand, many look to how they can help. And that can prove challenging to someone in TDCJ.

But the women at the Hilltop Unit in Gatesville find a way.

Thousands of them.

Because He died ... we live!

For it is Christ’s love that fuels our passion and motivates us because we are absolutely convinced that he has given his life for all of us. This means all died with Him, so that those who live should no longer live self-absorbed lives but lives that are poured out for him — the one who died for us and now lives again.
2 Cor. 5:13-15

from our homes to yours,
Happy Resurrection Day!

I speak to you from the depths of your being. Hear me saying soothing words of Peace, assuring you of My Love. Do not listen to the voices of accusation, for they are not from me.

Be transformed by the truth that I live within you.
The light of my presence is shining upon you, in benedictions of peace. Let My light shine in you; don’t dim it with worries and fears.

In spite of much adversity (lockdowns to lodging challenges and even team members battling illness), we are excited to be returning to Marlin for the Captivating Follow Up. Why? Well, besides the obvious, living out our mission, we are gifted with the opportunity to influence and connect with women who are preparing to return to their homes and community very soon! In fact, 9 have already gone home since the January Captivating Experience! Can I get an Amen & Praise the Lord? Your prayers and support are vital for the mission, the ministry, our team of volunteers, and our sisters ... on both sides of the bars!
