Life is a roller coaster for all of us. No matter where you are in life, no matter your age or your station, life has a way of throwing us curve balls. Sometimes, it seems like you are on top of the world, only to have events change suddenly so that you are struggling. Other times, you may be in dire circumstances with no hope, when suddenly, against all odds, a loophole changes your situation for the better. Loopholes is a journey through those times in my life when God showed up in a big way; those circumstances where I should have lost my freedom, or even lost my life because of the decisions I made, where suddenly I was delivered from the worst possible consequences. God’s grace is real. And while we all suffer the ups and downs of life, I hope these stories from my life can show you that God is always working behind the scenes as our Divine Counselor, finding those loop holes we didn’t even dare to hope for.

Peers Pencils & Pages

Sometimes, we need to be reminded that our past doesn’t define our future. Sometimes, we need someone who’ll just listen, or point us in the right direction for natural and community resources. Someone who’s been down the same hell hole as us …and made it out. Peers Pencils & Pages was first developed and successfully piloted as the Writing for the Soul Workshop™ Peer Support Program through a partnership with Texas ReEntry Services. Together, we offered the program as a realistic criminal justice strategy aimed at safely reducing the State’s costly reliance on incarceration– creating stronger families, less taxpayer waste, and safer communities. The Peers Pencils & Pages project empowered those willing to share their story to become a “credible messenger” helping to connect with a peer, connect the peer to recovery and so much more.
