Some wonder if their loved one will be released only to be jailed again, some children miss their imprisoned parents. This notebook is designed to be given to inmates to write their thoughts and feelings so they can read them later in life, write letters to their children, parents, family and loved ones. Write their plans, dreams or visions about the future, and prepare them to rejoin society no matter how much time they have spent while away. INSTRUCTIONS you can give to your incarcerated loved one: Behind bars? What's next? Reconnect with yourself and your loved ones through journaling. Journal about your dreams, your vision, future plans, letters to children, friends, and family, and anything you want to say to yourself or your loved ones.

Whether your loved one is behind bars because of addiction or anxiety related disorders, or they were wrongly imprisoned altogether, you can help them to stay in touch with themselves and others outside the confinement of the walls, by writing and journaling. Dissociative disorders together with Post Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD) and other depressive and manic disorders can be avoided simply by staying connected and bonding to others in a nonjudgmental relationship. Using this writing journal can be a form of personal cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). IMPORTANT: Some key things about sending books to friends and family behind bars... If you order this book and send it to yourself, then send it to them yourself in a box, they will most likely be rejected for security reasons. It is highly recommended that you order and send directly from a publisher or seller like amazon, and that you do not send more than three books in one shipping. Ordering books for an inmate through an online retailer is easy, you just have to make sure that you select ship by USPS and that you ship it to the inmate's mailing address. Put the inmate's first name and last name followed by the inmate's ID number in the name line of the shipping address (John Doe, 12345). Next line put the facility name and then the address, so if I were sending an inmate items to Ulster Correctional Facility it would look like this: Frank Doe, 12345 The Name of Correctional Facility P.O. Box 600 Napanoch, New York 17478-0890
When life is falling apart, God will carry you through. It has been said that everyone is either entering, in the midst of, or just exiting a trial. Popular author and pastor Max Lucado has discovered that at any given point, almost everyone is dealing with something. Whether the loss of a loved one, marriage issues, illness, job loss, or the stress of everyday life, people everywhere need the assurance that God will carry them through. Through decades of betrayal, abandonment, and false accusations, Joseph never gave up on God or His purpose. And Joseph continually trusted the sovereignty of God as Master-weaver of his life. InGod Will Carry You Through, Max invites readers to do the same—to let God’s message through Joseph guide His children through tough times today. Laced throughout Joseph’s story are personal testimonies by everyday people who discovered for themselves that “God had carried them through” as well as quotes and Scripture passages for meditation. This book is rich in hope for finding peace and reassurance through whatever challenge you face.

You’ll get through this. It won’t be painless. It won’t be quick. But God will use this mess for good. Don’t be foolish or naïve. But don’t despair either. With God’s help, you’ll get through this. You fear you won't make it through. We all do. We fear that the depression will never lift, the yelling will never stop, the pain will never leave. In the pits, surrounded by steep walls and aching reminders, we wonder: Will this gray sky ever brighten? This load ever lighten? In You'll Get Through This, pastor and New York Times best-selling author, Max Lucado offers sweet assurance. "Deliverance is to the Bible what jazz music is to Mardi Gras: bold, brassy, and everywhere." Max reminds readers God doesn't promise that getting through trials will be quick or painless. It wasn't for Joseph--tossed in a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned, forgotten and dismissed--but his Old Testament story is in the Bible for this reason: to teach us to trust God to trump evil. With the compassion of a pastor, the heart of a storyteller, and the joy of one who has seen what God can do, Max explores the story of Joseph and the truth of Genesis 50:20. What Satan intends for evil, God redeems for good.

Every one of us will experience suffering. Many of us are experiencing it now. As we have seen in recent years, evil is real in our world, present and close to each one of us. In such difficult times, suffering and evil beg questions about God--Why would an all-good and all-powerful God create a world full of evil and suffering? And then, how can there be a God if suffering and evil exist? These are ancient questions, but also modern ones as well. Atheists such as Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and even former believers like Bart Ehrman answer the question simply: The existence of suffering and evil proves there is no God. In this captivating new book, best-selling author Randy Alcorn challenges the logic of disbelief, and brings a fresh, realistic, and thoroughly biblical insight to the issues these important questions raise. Alcorn offers insights from his conversations with men and women whose lives have been torn apart by suffering, and yet whose faith in God burns brighter than ever. He reveals the big picture of who God is and what God is doing in the world–now and forever. And he equips you to share your faith more clearly and genuinely in this world of pain and fear. "As he did in his best-selling book, Heaven, Randy Alcorn delves deep into a profound subject, and through compelling stories, provocative questions and answers, and keen biblical understanding, he brings assurance and hope to all." -Publishers Weekly
