Thanks Kathryn, your story is powerful testimony to the power of the story of Jesus. Thanks for sharing this. Blessings to you and your ministry.

I followed your message when I presented this reading in a maximum security prison 2 weeks ago. I thought the men could relate to being thought of as "dogs". They were so impressed with all the abuse this woman was willing to take for the sake of her daughter and how she thought outside of the box in which society had placed her. They realized that they need to act outside the box in which society has placed them and to spread the word and action of God among their fellow inmates. They said that her great faith saved her daughter and they need to have great faith that God will help them also even in their sad and sometimes desperate condition.
