About the Book
It is amazing how heightened one’s belief become when faced with a crisis. Locked inside that prison van, facing what would more than likely be the rest of my life behind bars, I felt more connected to God than at any other time in my life, believing with all my heart that the miracle I needed to save me from a life sentence would somehow be provided. For some inexplicable reason, I just felt that this was not the way God intended for my life to end, pining away in a prison cell and waiting to die.
Blessed and Highly Favored was written for the currently incarcerated, the formerly incarcerated, and the at-risk population in our communities. This inspirational book is also a must-read for anyone working or teaching in the fields of criminal justice, sociology, behavioral psychology, or substance-abuse counseling. Blessed and Highly Favored is Theo’s miraculous story of a seven-time felon who was given seven chances to get it right.
