Join Lucy Ann Moll as she welcomes Karen Watkins Hammons, the founder of the ministry and blogsite “The Offender’s Wife.”

The Offender's Wife is a Christ-centered ministry that reaches out to wives of accused or convicted sex offenders with encouragement and hope. Karen says that sex offenders are the modern day lepers of society.

She’s right on.

I know how I felt and what I thought when a registered sex offender moved in down the block. I told my kids to steer clear of his house even though it was unlikely he’d hurt them. I didn’t bother to befriend other members of the household.

My attitude is so unlike the way Jesus would think. Just as he reached out and touched a leper, I’m certain he’d knock on the door and “Welcome to the neighborhood.” Not me.

Karen and I will talk not only about her new ministry but also the feelings all Christian women feel at times: rejection, isolation misunderstanding and chaos.

Life’s tough but you’re gonna make it because God is with you.
