    I am so glad Dr. Jill went to visit someone she knows in San Quentin. We have a family member there we visit also. It’s not what we want to do, but I think it is the right thing to do. Kudos to her for doing what I believe the bible tells us to do.

    Hebrews 13:3New International Version (NIV)
    3 Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.
    Matthew 25:36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

      While I do not have a relative in prison; the son of Carol Kent (writer and speaker) is in a Florida prison. His name is Jason Paul Kent (JP). He incarcerated for life w/o parile. You can see his story on Datleine NBC archives. Because of prison rules, and because I am not a relative, it is not possible to visit him. I however, send birthday cards, Christmas cards, Easter cards. His story really broke my heart. Carol wrote “When I Lay My Isaac Down” tells the story of what they’ve had to endure and how faith is carrying them through all their pain and sorrow. Find and inmate’s address and prayer needs through Prison Fellowship Ministries and make that your ‘generous’ outreach for 2016.

    Happy to see that this 11 year old girl has been listening to the show very impressed. She may some day become a counsoler or will be one that can counsol other adults and children. I think listening to the show has given her good male role models. I know that it has helped me listen to safe men. I have struggled with men because I have been around unsafe males all my life.

    An 11 year old is too young to be listening to this program; or calling in. Sometimes the questions and issues are of ‘adult content’ This child needs a good Christian counselor who specializes in children’s issues. Steve and the other counselors are more patient and gracious, but it’s not something to cover on a short call in radio program.
