Welcome

This site is a collection of blogs written by inmates.

It serves as a platform which allows them to share their individual stories, opinions, talents, and their inner thoughts.

You can lock up a man, but you can’t lock up their mind.

We support, understand, and believe that writing can be a great source of rehabilitation, growth, and healing.

  1. Thanks for the follow. It came because of the poem “The dark side” I wrote. I might need your help to write about a character I only knew because his children were in the school I worked for. Would you like to be part of my book about counseling in the Oregon Cascades? I think you would be a great resource! Let me know.

  2. Thank you for stopping by my page and following me. I am in the process of beginning to volunteer with one of the local prisons in Denver, CO. I am glad to hear about this initiative of posting entries that inmates write and that their voices are heard.

  3. I am inspired by your vision, and congratulate you on turning it into a reality! You have done this because you can see beyound your prison walls! In fact your vision has reached us here in Thailand! It is clear that in doing what you are called to do, you undoubtedly help others find the way too. Clearly, you are a champion in God’s kingdom. Keep up the good work and thanks for following our blog!

  4. Thanks for following The Well-Dressed Branch. You may have noticed that it doesn’t contain much horticulture information in the usual sense, but derives its title from Yeshua’s statement, “I am the vine, you are the branches.”

    Once you get into the Branch’s content you will soon discover a subtle irreverence toward church as we know it today; what we call, “church,” is is often the product of people very much like ourselves, spinning their traditions, commandments, rules and other requirements into a rock-solid dogma that displays little of Yeshua’s love, grace and mercy.

    Make no mistake; I love God’s church, meaning the brethren who have responded to our Savior’s sacrificial love by giving themselves freely to him as he did to us, with the result that they have passionately set themselves apart from the corrupt, world system, with its vain-pride-motivated, lust, greed, cruelty, ambition and oneupmanship,

    I hope The Well-Dressed Branch will encourage you and others to seek the sanctified life for which he created you.

    In Christ Jesus’ Love,
    MTJames

  6. I have just discovered this site thanks to Stephen Jennings, who has become a Follower of my own blog (blindfaithblindfolly.wordpress.com). I introduced myself to him by referring to the title of my self-published book “From Illusions to Illumination. The Itinerary of a Franciscan Priest from Catholicism to Atheism” and my favorite quotation : “The truth will make you free”. I did not tell him that I spent a couple of months myself in a prison. It was my first appointment, in fact, after being ordained a Franciscan priest, an educator in our Boys’ “Home” (!) near Melbourne, Australia, back in the early sixties. A militant atheist for the last forty years, I look forward to being enriched by the reflections of inmates who find meaning and a certain fulfillment in contributing, as I do, to a blog.
