“Thank you Daddy!”
Had a ‘walk in’ client come in for a needs assessment for at OHPM When we were talking, I ask him if he had done Bedtime Stories in prison. He told me a story of how he was never there for any of his 6 kids lives, but when he got his act together the 7th year of his 8 year sentence… he did the Bedtime Stories for all 6 of his children! He really didn’t know if the stories he recorded with a personal message at the end would make it to his kids, until he finally got a hold of his 16-year-old daughter.
She told him “Thank you daddy, I loved that CD, and I listen to it every night before I go to bed.” I was so happy to hear this news that I cried. I told him that I was right now making C.D.’s to send with the books to the children.
So I realized that the Bedtime Stories… that I so love to do, has a real impact in the lives of many people. The ripple effect of Bedtime Stories is truly the start of restoring families. I am so thankful to God for allowing me this opportunity to be a part of this wonderful ministry. I have learned so much not only from my experiences but from all the clients that walk through these doors.
