Resources for Family & Friends


  • ARRESTED - What to Do When Your Loved One’s in Jail 
    Arrested is the only guide to supporting family members facing criminal charges. It explains how to make decisions that are in the best interests of the entire family—not just the defendant—and provides checklists of what things to do, and in what order. Form letters called “jail mail” are included to help readers quickly send important information to inmates.


  • Family Arrested: How to Survive the Incarceration of a Loved One 
    The author's life was devastated when her husband was arrested for a federal tax crime and given a fifteen-year sentence. During the six years he served, she learned about the prison system, which she tells about in this book. Edenfield reads the painful events of those years in a factual way, distancing herself from the emotional pain of being left to raise four young children on little income. This stoicism requires listeners to engage their imaginations to envision what her life must have been like.


  • Get Outta My Face! 
    Get Outta My Face! is written for Christian parents, teachers, and youth workers to help them reach angry, unmotivated and disinterested teens with biblical counsel.

This manual addresses that experience. This book is for anyone who is affected by the imprisonment, past or present, of a loved one and wants to do something to help.


  • Learning to Sing in a Strange Land 
    The author describes the experience of incarceration both from the family’s perspective and that of the inmate. His story of his daughter’s incarceration is deeply personal but also very informative and inspirational.
