If you are interested in donating to a prison ministry, I can highly recommend this one. Linda’s book would make a great Christmas gift and you’d be giving twice. There ya go! 😉
Hello my friends, my name is Linda O’Dell, and I am honored to share on this blog. I am very passionate about prison ministry, as I have volunteered at a women’s prison in Oklahoma for 16 years.
Through my Letters For The Lord Prison Ministry, I also correspond nationwide with prisoners and their families. I started prison work in 1998 when a family member was wrongly convicted. Then, the Lord started calling me into the prison to minister to as many women as possible. They have changed my life.
It is so rewarding. For the mail part of the ministry, I started that back in the ’70s and I am always looking for volunteers to help. If interested, contact me.
The work I do at the women’s prison is with a bigger group of volunteers and we have a weekly mentoring program ongoing for 14 years now. We do many special projects also throughout the year and always need help with funding.
I am so happy to have my first book out, Captive Thoughts, which was published on my birthday. What a special gift the Lord gave me!
Captive Thoughts reads like a book of meditations or proverbs. There are 365 ‘captive thoughts,’ one you can meditate on each day. This book of captive thoughts illuminates different perspectives on captivity, whether in a literal cage or the prisons of our thoughts. Often in the meditations, the keys to escape are easy to find. Other times, we must ponder the precepts to find the key.
All proceeds from my book directly benefit the prison ministry.
So, it is a wonderful way for you to support the ministry as well as get a nice read. It is available on Amazon in paperback as well as Kindle.
I am honored to have this dream of publishing a book come true and I am looking forward to writing more in the future.
