Overview

Your faith will be renewed by reading this book. Author Gail McKenna weaves her personal experiences in ministry to inmates with the testimonies of those same inmates, to create a beautiful tapestry of faith in the life-changing grace of God.

Your heart will be uplifted as you read these stories of God's love conquering addiction and abuse, enabling these women to restart their lives with purpose and conviction. But be careful . . . you may be so inspired that you'll find yourself signing up to volunteer at your local detention center.

"Jesus told us to visit the imprisoned. Sixty years ago one of my first assignments was to serve the incarcerated in a federal prison near Washington, D.C. Gail McKenna's book would have been helpful to me then. Her message is timeless. Read this book and answer Jesus' call."
-Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., President Emeritus, University of Notre Dame

"We must extend our love to people who are alone and have hit rock bottom. These stories are about the women Gail McKenna visits at the county jail each week. She gives them hope and shows how we can all live the gospel message today."
-Sister Helen Prejean, Author of Dead Man Walking

"If you have ever wondered if there is hope for the hopeless, then this is the book for you. Here is a book so well-written and well-documented that it proves there is spiritual rehabilitation taking place behind bars. You will laugh and cry as you read some of the heartfelt stories the author weaves into her book."
-Rev. Calvin Bogaard, Baptist Chaplain, Volunteer in Prison Visitation Program, Houston, Texas.
