TRUTH BE TOLD
November 30, 2012

I was a happy middle class church lady, but fearful of those who had suffered hard lives. When I came to prison to teach women speaking skills, so they could help juveniles and other women not follow in their footprints, I experienced an entirely new level of community that changed my life. All women need tools of creativity to deal with emotions, so they don't get self-destructive or destructive to others ... and communication skills so others will be able to understand and hear them ... and community building skills so they can become safe for others who share their deeper values and choose others who will not play victim/persecutor/rescuer games with them when they are most vulnerable. Inmates or not, most of us have imprisoned ourselves or been imprisoned by unhealthy patterns from the past. I LOVE being a compassionate listener to their stories, their awakening and strengthening, and a respectful witness to this mostly invisible population of wounded women. Truth be Told is doing powerful and needed work.

EZIAMA GRACE SUPPORT NETWORK
June 1, 2010

Ele moved the Sanctuary church with her stories and experiences with the motherless babies home that is provided by her sister and brother-in-law in Nigeria. As a founding member of a non-profit working with women in prison (Truth-be-Told) I know the commitment required, and necessity to use every gift but continually surrender to God's will and provision in the face of difficulties. Nothing could be more important than giving infants a chance to grow up surrounded by God's love through human faces and hands and care. I honor this work with all my heart.

The Great!
