“Restructuring starts with the Warden.  The Warden must be wise to under shepherd a strongly will flock of women and men who have been literally locked in pins. If a prison is having riots and significant chaos, and illegal activity, look first to the Warden and then his staff.”


“It is imperative that we teach forgiveness across the world. It is the cure to what ails us. What I have learned over the years is unforgiveness cannot live in a heart of compassion.”

“She is a daughter, a mother, a sister, a grandmother, He is a son, a father, a brother, a grandfather. Unless absolutely necessary for family safety, those relation-ships should never be inhibited, but should be preserved at all cost; as they will be needed inside and outside of prison.”

“God forgives a man and makes Him a new creature. What right do we have to hold a man hostage to his past when he has completed the process of renewal? Should he not be given the opportunity to live again without threat and deprivation of civil rights and liberties, after God has spared his life?  The scripture says, “Who the Son set free is free indeed.”


“One cannot reintegrate good without infusing and investing good. Church involvement is critical in positive transformation and reintegration.  We must reach people where they are not where we are; that will require that we get uncomfortable, that we get free from our traditional thoughts. The formerly incarcerated will need to be educated, trained for employment, and become Godly Entrepreneurs. That infusion takes money and ministry; and the result will be a Godly family leader, community leader,  national leader, and /or world leader.”


“Grace does not discriminate. There is enough grace for both the victims and the violators, for families and the felons. We the believer must be the conduit of God’s grace; which has proven to be sufficient for us all. “


“These are men and women not inmates in these prisons. We cannot dehumanize people in prison and expect them to return to their communities rehabilitated. Positive restructuring of prisons will yield positive results for reintegration into families and communities, and that is what reduces crime and eliminates intergenerational incarceration.”
