If anyone has any Christian/Inspirational fiction they’d like to donate, we have a need for them. The girls at IYC Warrenville would love to receive them. They can be used but in good condition and MUST be soft cover. All genres accepted. They can be either for teens or adults as long as there good clean stories/Christian based.

I've been told that the girls just LOVE it when they are given a new book. You have no idea what this means to them. If you’d like to donate, please contact me at,

For all of you that may not know, Louisiana (Angola) State Penitentiary in Angola Louisiana has a magazine, The Angolite. The inmates write all the articles, edit them, take all the photographs, do all the interviews. Basically do everything put have it printed.

Those of you that haven’t heard of Angola, it’s a prison with an amazing story. I highly suggest reading the book, Cain’s Redemption, by Dennis Shere. I spent eight days there and it was truly life changing. One could not walk into the facility and not feel God’s presence working in the lives of the men there.

I love to receive my copy of, The Angolite. There’s writing from inmates, along with information on the prison system, past history of Angola, and news about those that have visited there.

If you’d like to receive a subscription to their magazine, you can either go onto their website at,, and click on, Angolite. Or write to them at, The Angolite, c/o Cashier’s Office, Louisiana State Penitentiary, Angola, LA 70712.

It’s a great way to get connected with a prison, and to show your support for what they do.
