Don't just take my word for it, read what others are saying!

"Inspiring! Couldn't put it down! I read this book in one sitting! It was an emotional and inspiring read. It helped to open my eyes about the prison system, and to be more present in the lives of loved ones who are incarcerated. It also encouraged me to push forward with the gifts God has given me." - Aaliyah Carter

"If you’re looking for an amazing, inspirational read, THIS IS IT! I literally sat and read the entire book in a matter of a few hours because I couldn’t put it down! This book is based on real life events and had me smiling, crying, convicted, motivated and inspired." - Mary Boyd

"Adjusting to prison life was difficult for me. The people, the language, and the mentalities were foreign. Prison culture and the "outside" society are two different worlds. What worked in my professional life on the "outside" caused me to be ostracized, ridiculed, bullied and isolated inside prison. Trudi helped me to adjust to my new environment by encouraging me to look for opportunities to grow spiritually, mentally and emotionally. She directed my attention to focus on my true purpose - God's assignment for my life. She blessed me beyond measure." - Michelle Mallard

"I recommend everything about this book! I could not put it down! I recommend it to anyone who wants a good book to read. It deserves 5 STARS" - Deborah (Amazon)

The author did an AMAZING job on this book!  - Pauline L

"This book is a "must read" for all. You think it could never happen to you or your children, so did Trudi. Study for yourself – know for yourself.  I Highly recommend Ms. Batiste as a speaker at your church's next family conference." - Amazon Reviewer

"Trudi, you did an exceptional job with this book. I can't wait to read your other work and hear you speak again." - Amazon Reviewer

"Meeting you has unlocked something in me, and your guidance in helping me to share my own story was another level of healing for my life. Thank you! Your experiences have impacted my life forever." - Simene' Walden
