SORT BY Relevancy
In this episode of Prison Wives United, I will introduce myself and explain why I chose to start this. I will discuss what I've been through, and future plans for this show. I plan to do this weekly, and each week I will feature a specific discussion in hopes of getting you all to participate. I will have a friend of mine who will close us in prayer. The show will be nothing without yall, so I hope you plan to listen and join in on the conversation. Check me out on Instagram @prisonwivesunited for daily inspiration, and uplifting posts. <3
Strength is contagious. Let's unite together.
Let's talk about how often we and our husbands write each other. How important is it to get that letter in your mailbox? What about him, does he crave to get a letter daily? We will also talk about how best to preserve and organize your letters, maybe one day you'll have a beautiful love story book or a worst relationship ever book when it's all said and done. So see you then to talk all about our prison letters.
3 Generations & Over 55 Years Of Imprisonment
Tai Zen is a 3rd generation prisoner in his family.
His family had to endure the pain of incarceration and suffering across 3 generations of men spanning 3 different countries across the globe.
Between his grandfather, father, older brother, and his self, they will have spent a total of over 55 years in prison and over 95% of that incarceration time was done by his older brother, “Chop” and himself.
However, the mental, physical, and spiritual suffering that they all endured regardless of the reason why they were thrown in prison are all the same.
Today’s Prisons Have No Bars, Walls, Gun Towers, & Razor Wire
His imprisonment gave him the unique insight to experience and truly understand the nature of human “imprisonment” and “freedom”.
The prison he was in was very obvious because it had nasty steel bars, vicious razor wires, relentless perimeter trucks, trigger happy armed guards, overbearing watch towers, invisible motion sensors, etc. to ensure he could not escape.
However, as he looked at the supposedly “free” world around him after his release from prison, he began to notice the horrors of the “invisible” shackles and chains that imprisoned everyone around him.
His movement is to create freedom from self imposed prisons.

The United States is the world's leader in incarceration with 2.2 million people currently in the nation's prisons or jails -- a 500% increase over the past thirty years.
More than 60% of the people in prison are now racial and ethnic minorities. For Black males in their thirties, 1 in every 10 is in prison or jail on any given day. These trends have been intensified by the disproportionate impact of the "war on drugs," in which two-thirds of all persons in prison for drug offenses are people of color.
Curtis and Nancy Petrey came to visit. They have been in ministry for decades. Obviously, they have lots of awesome testimonies to share. Curtis pulled a picture of Jesus out of his bible and began to share with me how he obtained it. He got it in prison. Here is his testimony.
I will start off by sharing my "prison" love story and then all the wives on the call can share theirs so that we can support each other around the holidays and for the closing of another year, which brings us closer to a homecoming. Whether you met on the inside or the outside you have a "prison" love story because it takes a lot of love to maintain a marriage while your husband is away. Let's talk ladies!
I have officially started "The Prison Wives Movement" to help all prison wives to come out of hiding and be proud of who they are and what they do.
The Mission Statement is: To empower and unite women that are ridiculed and put down for supporting their husband throughout incarceration.
I will talk about the purpose of this show as it relates to that movement. I will also talk about the new Prison Wives Store that I opened online at CafePress for NY, and eventually will have one for every state. There are very nice unique slogans just for prison wives, you can get t-shirts, bumper stickers and more. I do not make money from the store, so the prices are those set by CafePress and I am encouraging all wives to get something and use it so that we can get this movement going, one woman and one state at a time.
If you are not comfortable wearing your shirt in public, wear it on your visit, I am sure hubby will love it!
There are several other projects that The Prison Wives Movement will be embarking on in the future.
Currently, NY Prison Wives (a part of TPWM) is organizing periodic get together trips for wives to meet up and enjoy themselves. See home page announcement about the Nov. 6th, 2010 Casino Trip.
Hear about all the great things we can do in this movement and vow to help with my cause.
