Inmate’s transformation ends drug use, unifies family. Thank you, Chaplain Lydia! [Video]

The simple sharing with inmates of how God loves each and every one of them can begin a transformation of character — one that helped the man in Chaplain Lydia’s story overcome his drug use and eventually reunite with family. A new understanding of God showed him he’s not doomed to be a “sinner.” Thank you, Lydia!

We hope you will tell others about Christian Science work in the institutions by sharing this video and inviting them to visit

    Thank you, chaplain Lydia, we need more people to remain firm in the Truth that God sees everyone of His Creation with Love, not everybody believes that, probably based on what they were taught when they grew up.

    I loved hearing your story of how he prayed not only for himself but others. I think transformation is inevitable when you turn to God with your whole heart. And this is what he did. Thank you for sharing, Lydia!
