In this seventeenth episode of the Detention to Redemption podcast, I interview Dove Morgan Schmidt, from Bristow, Oklahoma. Dove shares with us her love for the incarcerated and how that through her marriage to an incarcerated man her eyes was opened to the trials these men and women face when they are released. She shares about the journey and conversion of her late husband Richard “Bear” Morgan. Bear’s story of change is one of God’s grace and love for all, even those who chose to work against Him. Dove shares the struggles that her late husband faced of being institutionalized. Dove not only encourages us to engage in prison ministry but also offers words of wisdom and encouragement to the families of the incarcerated. Through much struggle Bear and Dove were able to make it and wrote two books about their journey. You will be blessed by Doves love and compassion for the incarcerated.
