The following Stories From The Field editions will be a series of letters written by incarcerated men in the United States. These letters were penned as a response to FREEDOM FROM WITHIN, Foundations For Life – Unleash The Masterpiece, a program developed by CCWM Missionaries Cliff and Sue Parrish to teach how to live Godly principles in such a way that brings contagious life transformation, even within the walls of a prison. Cliff and Sue are taking Freedom From Within to the prisons of the United States and possibly to a church near you. This article was originally published by Cup of Cold Water Ministries.
A simple, short phrase yet with profound significance beyond what those five little words alone could reveal. “Live it to give it!”
A simple, short phrase yet with profound significance beyond what those five little words alone could reveal. That short phrase, uttered by a man I’ve come to admire, Cliff Parrish, during our first encounter as he instructed a class that would catapult me, and my entire life into a journey I couldn’t have envisioned beforehand.
Before I go any further you should know I’ve spent the last 17 years in prison.
I only mention that because it’s an integral part of this journey that’s brought me to this point where I’m writing the foreword for a book about influential leadership.
The book is called, Foundations For Life, a book that has infinitely transformed my life in a most deep-seated manner and it can and will do the same for you and for anyone who applies what’s learned. Thank you for letting me share my transformation with you.
