Blameless and Forever Free Ministries understands that by the time a crime has been committed and a victim is harmed, the root causes of that crime may have occurred long ago. D.A. Kevin Barton

I’m Ready To Heal My Childhood Trauma!

“By the time a crime is committed and a victim is harmed, the root causes of that crime may have occurred long ago.” – District Attorney Kevin Barton

Recognizing the truth from what numerous scientific studies have established, along with countless medical professionals, that children who experience neglect, abuse, socioeconomic disadvantages and other forms of trauma are more likely to suffer from challenges such as mental illness, substance-abuse disorders and even physical health consequences.

This is called adverse childhood experiences, better known as ACEs.

And when we look at the men and women who are incarcerated in the U.S., they have the highest levels of trauma and abuse in their lives, and we put them in a system that was never designed to work with that history???

Transforming our prisons through trauma-informed care is essential for healing and wholeness and restored lives for all affected by crime.

What these eyes see now matters. Every life matters! If we want safer communities, then it’s time we start changing the narrative and start investing in people, not prisons.

Blameless and Forever Free Ministries’ mission is to break the cycle of crime while restoring broken lives through God’s Great Love infused with restorative justice practices and trauma-informed care.

In order to decrease criminal recidivism, treatment intervention must focus on the effects of early life experiences.

Hurt people often Hurt others, but Healed people Heal!

Until next time…

The Practice Of Forgiveness Is Our Most Important Contribution To The Healing Of The World – Marianne Williamson

Oh, how I love short and meaningful posts that I can tuck into the folds of my heart to help keep me focused on what matters.

We’re all grieving a loss of some magnitude with COVID-19 running rampant through our lives, whether it’s financial, sickness. loss of employment, social distancing, time or abundancy.

Provision matters and when we’re robbed with many unknowns, we forget the blessings of just being, being present, with peace.

Without peace, we lose direction and self-control. All the hate and division in the world unravels and gives birth to chaos and crisis adding more trauma to innocent lives.

I pray we might search our hearts and find grace to let go of the hurts that are festering. We’re living in a world today that is full of volatile people. Hurts breed bitterness and hate; and hate stirs violence.

Hurt people hurt others, but healed people heal!

Forgiveness soothes our parched souls and pours out living waters that our Beautiful Jesus offers. Talk about contributing healing to those occupying space in our worlds.

If you look at the world, you’ll be distressed. If you look within, you’ll be depressed. If you look at God, you’ll be at rest – Corrie Ten Boom

The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.

If we want to help ourselves and society in bringing humankindness, all we have to do is practice forgiveness and receive the peace that surpasses all knowledge..

We all win!!!

Until next time…
