I have been sharing copies with inmates--what a blessing for them---a group of these guys all played on a winning little league team--from some challenging situations---even the coach is now serving time--and he's the first one that I shared it with and he was so blessed that I started sharing with the other guys--ithas reached them and has encouraged them in ways that only the Holy Spirit through the written word can. Thank you for having this unique piece available--it changes lives.
