A Look Behind the Walls

Front Cover
Inspiring Voices, Sep 24, 2012 - Religion - 62 pages

The father is incarcerated; the mother of his children is working two jobs to provide shelter, food, and clothing to the children. Partly as a result of his incarceration, she has grown as a person, due to the obstacles and choices she has had to make, while he has become less confident because of the lack of decisions he is allowed to make. Add to that situation children who have grown up without a father role model in their lives, who are angry and embarrassed over the situations they have been placed in. Throw in the standard judgment of free world people. He is there for a reason.

Do we even realize that the whole family is doing time together? The only catch is, the kids and wife are doing time for crimes they did not commit. Where is the hope in such situations?
