“7 Principles God Taught Me in Prison”
by Jennifer Leigh Allison

 

Prison behind razor wireEvery time I step out of my comfort zone and follow God’s calling, I get to witness Him do miraculous things. In the audio message above, I share 7 life principles that God taught me as I was speaking with inmates. I can honestly say that I’ve learned more about His power, merci, grace and forgiveness while talking to addicts, murderers and thieves, than I ever did sitting in a pew. He is truly awesome!

Laughter really is the best medicine and it doesn’t even have any bad side effects…unless, of course, you have an annoying snort when you chuckle that forces milk out of your nostrils while you’re trying to enjoy a good meal with friends.
