Tough to Read? Good advice/counsel:

I can’t even imagine doing time and not knowing how to read. The four years I spent locked up were tough in many ways; but would have been incredibly more difficult if I was not able to read…

But many inmates are functionally illiterate…at best…Thankfully many prisons have programs to help (sadly, many offenders don’t take advantage of any of the educational stuff available because that is “cooperating with the man”).

Certainly it is not just prisoners who have reading difficulties.

Here is some great advice and ideas to help…it can be read or listened to…highly recommended: CLICK HERE

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
