Redemption That Transforms

Redemption That Transforms

Through Challenges and Adversity, We Build Strength!

Hi Friends, Blameless and Forever Free Ministries is excited to announce and introduce our new Women’s Director, Donna Sieverin, who will help lead our women incarcerated towards healing and wholeness at Folsom Women’s Facility. God was generous in blessing Blameless with Donna to help facilitate our programming, “Suffering in Silence,” to the many women behind bars at FWF.

When we let God have our lives, He can do far more with it than even we dare to imagine!

There are many of us that are willing to do great things for the Lord, but few of us are willing to do little things. -D.L. Moody

About Donna…

Donna understands generational dysfunction as well as how God sees endless potential for redemption. God pursues and His Love never relents!

Being adopted by parents who were doing their best as alcoholics to raise their children, along with masking over the pain delivered from the sting of abandonment and rejection, this slowly led Donna to find more comfort and dependency on her next fix; you know, getting high just to get by. This substance misuse led her spiraling down a highway to hell with absolutely no exit or offramp.

Several arrests later and a couple incarceration stays for numerous crimes devoted solely to satisfy her fix, Donna found Jesus in prison all due to an honorable judge in drug court who believed in a different approach.

Donna was blessed to have her record expunged, and her heart wants to lean into helping other women find peace and God’s Great Love in their lives so they can be a productive member of society and be accepted as our new neighbor.

All lives have value! We can’t forget, 95% of our incarcerated residents are going to be our neighbor some day; ready or not, here they come. Let’s embrace them with rehabilitative programming and BE READY!

When we let God have our lives, He can do far more with it than even we dare to imagine!

Help us welcome our beloved Donna and maybe even say hi to her on Blameless and Forever Free Ministries’ Facebook page.

Until next time…

Blameless and Forever Free Ministries, through Chaplain Tammy Ingram, wrote a 255-page rehabilitative workbook for our incarcerated residents to lead them towards redemption delivering transformation.

Our Presence and Purpose is Powerful!

Our Presence and Purpose is Powerful!

1 John 4:7

When we love one another, we remember we are not fighting for just ourselves, but we are fighting for humanity that the Word calls for in 1 John 4:7.

Did you know that, according to one Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report, which surveyed adults across the U.S. in late June of 2020, 31% of respondents reported some form of mental health care symptoms and are in need of proper mental health treatment?

And with the largest mental health institution in the United States being our prison system, the sobering number of unmet mental health needs is heartbreaking.

The beloveds that Blameless and Forever Free Ministries pours into may be imprisoned and/or recently released from state prison, but the connective tissue of true rehabilitation is in the transforming of one’s mind requiring relational community.

Every individual who has been incarcerated has a great need for appropriate mental health care treatment both during their incarceration and once released back into community.

Let’s face it, if you’ve committed a crime, there’s trauma behind it.

And to love one another, forgiveness is necessary (not negating the crime) along with meeting them right where they are at developmentally.

Building healthy individuals and families should be our number one priority so we have a fighting chance at safer communities and developing healthy generations.  

Future generations, meaning YOUR children and your children’s children, are being formed this very moment and what those little eyes see and hear now matters.

Until next time…
