"I had seen other inmates with the Scripture-text Datebook and rebelled [against] it as religious psycho-babble propaganda. I was made to go to church as a youth, by parents who were non-attenders themselves. I had become disheartened with church and spent all of these years (42), feeling I could handle everything life threw at me. In January of this year, I was given a Datebook by my cellmate. Instead of rejecting it, and him interpreting it as my rejecting his kindness, I put on a show of reading it. I eventually used it to write down daily plans and deeds. I then started reading the daily Scriptures, and His light opened my eyes. My heart felt a great burden lifted as I opened it and my brain to His righteousness. I cannot do this time or my life alone. I need Him!" ~Geoffrey F.
