God’s Redemption! Reoffenders Lack Relationships

God’s Redemption!

Transformation Matters | Reoffenders Lack Relationships

For the incarcerated residents that Blameless and Forever Free Ministries impacts, transformation occurs through God’s Great Love, coupled with connectedness, awareness and vulnerability.

⚓️ Connectedness is the relational anchor ⚓️

For our incarcerated to understand themselves and their actions, Blameless believes it requires understanding their history; and that includes generational familial dysfunction. After all, the “emotional residue of our past follows us.” -Dr. Bruce Perry

Until the wounds of our childhood traumas are healed, we will continue to bleed. The wounds will bleed through and stain our lives, whether it’s through drugs, alcohol, incarceration, etc.

It takes community/belonging to equip them with the courage to pull out the arrow, the deep wound, and begin to heal. That is what our workbook, “Suffering in Silence,” offers with God’s amazing grace.

With such a high demand, on this #GivingTuesday, Nov. 30, we pray that you will find it in your heart to support the distribution of our “Suffering in Silence” programming that is helping foster transformation through redemption and rehabilitation in our state prisons.

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…
