Freedom From Within

Real talent is everywhere in Prison. Some have discovered theirs and others still searching.

This card was drawn to honor our 31st wedding anniversary last week. Thank you, guys! #freedomfromwithin

If we were allowed to take pictures inside the Stateville prison today, you would have seen 100's of men in blue shirts singing and worshiping the Lord during the Unspoken concert. Trust us, it was a beautiful sight to be seen.

Hope to see everyone tonight at 7 PM at the Promenade outdoor mall in Bolingbrook to hear a free concert by the band Unspoken sponsored by WBGL radio. #freedomfromwithin #WBGL #Unspoken

After more than two years, Freedom From Within has been approved to offer our Foundations For Life class in the Sheridan Correctional Center. Freedom From Within now invests in over 400 student inmates per week across the three northernmost prisons in Illinois.

Today was the first class. The guys are pumped and ready for real transformation in preparation for the good things God planned for them long ago (Eph 2:10). Please join us in prayer for these guys. To help offset the cost of this program, please consider partnering with us financially by going to www.freedomfromwithin.org #freedomfromwithin

Best quote from the GLS at the Danville Correctional Center was from a prisoner who said, "I am getting out next year and I am determined to 'Bend the Curve' to stay home with my family and make a difference in my community."

Thank you Second Church of Christ who sponsored the #GLS19 resulting in a transformational impact on life behind bars. #freedomfromwithin

Day 1 of the Global Leadership Summit (GLS) with 280 prisoners in the Danville Correctional Center attending. This is our 4th year here facilitating the breakout sessions. Each year we witness guys inspired and eager to share what they have learned and how it will help them with their family and future. So many great stories and it's just the first day. #freedomfromwithin #GLS19 ... See MoreSee Less

Launched 5 new classes this week at Dixon Correctional Center as part of our Transformational Rhythms program. So why would over 175 prisoners become students in our classes for the next 16 weeks? Here are some of their responses we collected the past couple of days when asked, "Why do you want to be part of this program?"

- To refresh my life over again
- Seeking major changes in my life and others said I will learn how to do it in this class
- Find who I am and how I can be productive in the free world
- Striving to be a better me through a new character and be a better man for my family
- I just don't know how to be better but I really wanna wanna learn how and apply it in my new life outside these walls.
- Plus 170 other students.

Thank you to all our supporters. Your belief in these men inspires stronger families leading to stronger communities everywhere. To partner with us, check out our website at www.freedomfromwithin.org #freedomfromwithin

Freedom From Within

Lately, we have been spending a lot of time in the Stateville Prison. Talking with hundreds of guys by walking cell to cell, pod to pod or in a formal classroom setting teaching our life skills classes.

Most guys don't have an "out date" and it seems most are around my age with grown children and a couple grandchildren. The regret of the past has long been reconciled but their desire to positively impact the world keeps getting stronger year after year.

This post is not about the huge topic of justice, but rather a reminder to live each day fully and grow outwardly with every opportunity that comes your way.

Many guys get released unexpectedly for many reasons. Freedom From Within prepares the prisoner for the time when the unexpected happens. We never know the day or the hour, but our Heavenly Father knows Mt 24:36. #freedomfromwithin

A good description of a common prisoner, "You can sound confident & have anxiety. You can look healthy but feel sick. You can look happy & be miserable inside. You can be good looking & feel ugly." So be kind and pray for others often, because every person is fighting a battle inside you know nothing about. God Only Knows, one of my favorite songs from King and Country www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5cPQg3oq-o ... #freedomfromwithin ... See MoreSee Less

Remembering our heroes this Memorial Day. The following picture is a slide used last week by one of our graduates from our Organizational Integrity class at the Dixon Correctional Center. This prisoner is a Veteran and presented The Elite Warriors Foundation during a mock "Shark Tank" event last Tuesday as part of his graduation requirements. Everyone in the audience was moved by his passion for the Veterans. He hopes to start this organization once released from prison. #freedomfromwithin ... See MoreSee Less

Graduated 126 prisoners this week across 4 class in our Transformational Rhythms program at the Dixon Prison.

So much to share, I will need several posts to get it all in. For now, know that our hearts are full of joy and our clear prison bags are now empty. We used these bags to carry our printed course work inside the prison for our students. Since January 2019, we carried in 100 reams of paper (50,000 sheets) that resulted in 126 transformed lives.

The quote below is from one of our students from the Dixon Correctional Center responding to our class feedback form I received yesterday.

"This is like no other class, course, or program I've ever taken in my 32 years of incarceration, PERIOD!!! This whole program is impacting lives beyond these walls in the most meaningful manner and beyond anyone's imagination. This isn't about "reformation," it's about TRANSFORMATION!" #freedomfromwithin

Awesome doesn't even begin to describe how you two answered the call, humbled yourself, followed and believed. Thank you for letting God work thru you!

Amazing work! Being at all four graduations and the shark tank was one of the most transformative experiences I have ever participated in! Your faithfulness is bearing much fruit in the prisoners and their families!!

"Now to him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us"

This is wonderful!!!

Great quote!!! Praise our Heavenly Father!!!

This has me in tears! So excited for the wonderful ways God is using you and your ministry!

Oh man! I don't have words for this.

Amazing♥️💗♥️

Thank you both for all you do 🙏
