We are a Non-Denominational Christian Ministry that provides Hope & Encouragement for people passing through some difficult times in their life. We also provide (through our Helps Centers), support for Women and their Children that have a Husband or Father incarcerated in prisons.

Most people do not realize it but when a Husband is set off to prison, the women and children left behind are left in a prison of their own. Not one behind bars, but one of the World. Ther are times they loose their homes, cars, jobs and all personal belongings. We are here to help them when and where we can. Currently we have a presence in Arizona and Texas. Our goal is to open Helps Centers in Major Cities all across the United States. More information on What a Helps Center is and What it provides can be found on our Website at http://www.FreshStartFellowship.com

If you think a Helps Center is needed in your area, please tell us. If you are a spouse of someone in prison and if things get really tough and you need someone to talk to or just a shoulder to cry on, we want you to be able to use ours.

Ladies, if you are going through this and would like to share to others going through the same, please leave comments on how you are making it day by day.

Thank you and Blessings to you all.

How about if the guy in prison never married her?
How about if the guy has thirty or forty "wives" he never married and hundreds of children?
How about if the guy in prison suddenly "remembers" a few more wives and children every six months or a year?
Then how about if he writes and says he was only kidding about some of these "wives"?

The Majority of the time a woman left behind by an incarcerated husband is left behing with her children in a prison of their own. Not one behind bars, but one of the World.

We want to help them. Will You Help us Help those left behind?

Nope. A donation would be nice, either generous or $1 per day and we DO take them, but that is not what we are posting for. We are posting so that the Women who have lost everything or struggling in their finaces that have been left behind by a Husband in prison, will find us so we can help them when and where we can.

We want them to know we are here for them if needed.

Blessings,

I think there is a great need for one of this types of Helps Centers in the Tulsa area. Keep up the good work your services are very much needed.

Does your ministry address the struggle of Christian wives whose incarcerated husbands think the Bible begins at 'wives submit' and pretty much want to control everything in their wives lives from their cell?

My husband is in prison for somethings he did not do; we live in an area where they want it quick even if it's not right. Our lawyer gave his client away, he even talked agaist him; but you know his last statement didn't show up in the transcript. We can't find legal help anywhere. Small town new sheriff, lawyer friends with the other side; wanted case closed quickly, my life changed and my heart has been broken for 3years while an innocence man is behind bars.

We have seen this happen more than once. Some but not attorneys have deals with the other side. It is sad to say but we have experienced it first hand. Know that we are out here praying for you and your husband during this storm that you are passing through in your life.

Dear Princess in Temecula, Ca.

Hang in there. We will be out here praying for you, your husband and children. These storms are hard and difficult to get through, but if you will keep your eyes on God, He will help you through it. If you and your husband both will spend this time soaking in His word your marriage will be even better once he is back at home. If things get tough, here is a small littler prayer you can say each morning as you begin your day. Take your Bible and left it into the air and pray this.

"Lord this is my Bible, words from You. If I let my Eyes see it, my Ears hear it, my Mouth speak it and if I believe what I See, Hear and Speak is true and from You, then my life and situations will change, in Jesus name. Amen!"

What that means is that if you let your Eyes see it (Read what God's word says daily), your Ears hear it (Attend Church service and hear God's word taught), your Mouth speak it (Speak out loud what God's word says about you and your situation) and if you believe it, you will start seeing change take place.

Try it for 30 days and see what happens.

Blessings,
Pastor Bill

If he is who God has for you then don't let Satan take that from you too. He needs your prayer and every chance you get pray with him. Love has no bars. I didn't let Satan take that away from me, I loved him before and I love him now. God bless and may God smile on you.

My husband is in prison for sexual assualt, he will get 10-25 years. I know the woman that accused him was a willing party, they were drinking all day and her husband goes to bed, but it is what it is. I am confused because we have a 2 year old son and I don't know how to move forward.

MRSC:
It can be very tough and difficult at times for you with a husband behind bars. Don't let anybody tell you that your husband is the only one doing time. Prison Wives and Children are left behind in a prison of their own. Not one behind bars, but one of the world. You said you know about reading the Bible and attending church. However, it sounds like you really dont believe that. I am not here to preach to anyone, as we are here to help those passing through their difficult storms. However, He is the only way to get through the difficult times. Once you decide that and accept it then give it all to Him God). I mean give it ALL. He will be there to help you and give you the strength you need and if you husband will do the same while on the inside, once he gets back home you guys will experience a marriage like you have never dreamed. We all know what we need to do most of the time, but doing it is another story. It is up to you.
We are here if there is every anything we can do to help or if at times you just need a shoulder to cry on or someone to talk too. Also if you do not have a local church or feel comfortable in attending one, we provide a basic Internet Church Service every Sunday at 11am & 7pm (CST). Just go to http://www.FreshStartFellowship.com during those times and click on Listen Now. You will find at the begining about 30-40 mins of awesome praise & worship music, followed by about 15 mins of an inspirational message of Hope and Encouragement.
Be Blessed,
Pastor Bill
