My name is Linda O'Dell, I live in Oklahoma I am very passionate about
prison ministry, which I have done for 20 years now serving female offenders.
I started prison ministry as a teen doing correspondence by letters but in 1998
I began visiting prison when a relative was wrongly convicted. Visiting her each week
and meeting some of the other women in the visitation room, and wondering what about
all the other women behind the wire that never get a visit...long story short I stopped
being just a visitor and became a DOC volunteer and over these 20 years I have met and
mentored 1000s of women. They have changed my life for the better.
I am thankful for all the women I have come to know.
I have published 4 books so far hope you enjoy them as all sales benefits the
1. Captive Thoughts
2. On My Mind poetry reflections
3. Pondering In The Word
4. Captive Thoughts Vol. 2
