About Life Skills Prison Ministry
Life Skills Prison Ministry, a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization, believes justice-involved individuals, living transformed and productive lives, can lead their families to redemptive hope. And that through applied faith and life-skills education we equip and inspire individuals and their families to take control of their lives.
LSPM provides onsite (in prisons) formal classroom instruction, a mentorship program, and personal visits by ordained pastors to assist them in their transformation process.
Key materials provided are study bibles, books on Boundaries and Safe People by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend, a copy of all class materials, and certificates of completion.
The program focuses on providing justice involved individuals, education and guidance to assist them with solving/resolving wrongful behavior traits. It emphasizes the importance of developing and maintaining personal relationships through a strong self-image, positive attitudes, Strong Character and a Firm Foundation. Students are encouraged to practice personal introspection and review and strengthen the five main areas of life, Spiritual, Mental, Emotional, Physical, and Social. If we don’t know and understand how we got where are, how will we know how to change our future.
Dreaming and developing a vision of your future requires critical thinking, setting goals, planning and commitment. Often times it also requires a mentor or an accountability partner to help foster continued personal growth.
Building a House on a Rock (Jesus) vs on Sand
24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. 27 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.
