Spread the love.

Mike here, another letter from fellow inmate and friend of Noah’s.

A friend of mine just asked me, “Why are you writing about your life?”

“Is it so you can say, look what happened to me?”

It made me think, and I responded to him that, “I write in the hope that I can help another person before they go down the road of bad choices, or maybe I can help a person find a way out of the darkness of life.”

I want people to see and know that it is never too late to stop what they are doing and turn their life around for the better.

I also want our legal system to know that we are capable of making positive change in our lives and that locking us up and throwing away the key is not the solution, it just adds to the problem.

My children are growing up without a father and believing that this is acceptable in life. But I know it is because I have started a cycle and they are now having children of their own, and these fathers are also absent from their lives.

It is time for me to break this unacceptable cycle I have brought my children into.

I want them to know that they are loved and that I am becoming the father that they have always wanted and deserved.

I want to share my loving relationship with God with them. In doing so, I hope they will want to have a relationship with God as well.

I no longer want to be a part of the problem. I want to be part of the solution.

In order for that to happen, my life has to be an open book to all those who will listen. I have shared some of my childhood experiences with you, and I want you to know before I share more, that what happened to me as a child is no excuse for the choices I have made in life and for the pain I have caused my children and family. 

I hope as I share my life with all of you, you can see no matter what has happened to me or what I have done in life, that God has never stopped loving me and is willing to turn all that is bad in my life into good.

I am now an instrument of God’s will.

Thanks for listening,
