A Prison Ministry for Authors
A while back my friend Lorilyn Roberts invited me to donate some of my books to a Christian prison ministry in Florida that she is associated with. I thought is was a great idea, so I sent copies of my original Time and Again trilogy to her, and she got them into the hands of prisoners. I said a little prayer for the people who would read my books and thought that was the end of it.
Then today I received an email from Lorilyn with reviews one of the prisoners had written for the three books. His name is Bob L. and his words really touched my heart. I hadn’t actually thought that a criminal would find my stories interesting or pertinent, but he did. How grateful he sounded to get the books! I was struck anew with what a wonderful opportunity it is to make Christian fiction available for people who have lots of time on their hands. I’ll be sending Lorilyn copies of my next books from the Rewinding Time Series. They have an even stronger Gospel message than the original trilogy does.
Won’t you join me in praying for Bob L. and all the others who will pick up my books in the coming months and years?
Here are the reviews in Bob’s own handwriting.
