“Prison was the best thing that ever happened to me.”
Does that sound a little far-fetched … even laughable?
Believe it or not, we’ve lost count of how many prisoners and former prisoners have told us that. While prison may have first seemed like a place with no upside, the experience ended up being a real turning point in their lives, leading to a new way of thinking and a new purpose.
Prison Fellowship has created a unique guide for prisoners who want to make the most of their time behind bars. The Prison Survival Guide was written with input from many former prisoners, Prison Fellowship writers and editors, and experts in various fields.
We look forward with you to that day when the prison gate swings open and the officer shouts, “Don’t come back!”
We realize that some will never leave prison. For those who must remain, we hope this Prison Survival Guide will provide them with wisdom that will help them not only endure their situation but thrive in it.
The Prison Survival Guide offers suggestions in:
- How to eat right and stay fit.
- How to feed your mind.
- How to help your marriage stay in tact.
- How to parent your kids from behind bars.
- How to connect with the right kind of people inside.
- How to deal with anger and depression.
- How to guard against common prison diseases.
- How to tap into your spiritual side.
