Show Notes

Host Becky Hennesy invites Jay Dan Gumm to the podcast to break down the problems with today's prison systems in Texas and across America. From parole to sentencing to living conditions and more, it's clear that genuine REFORM is needed.

Jay Dan, a former felon himself, also unpacks the amazing ministry he launched in 2009 called Forgiven Felons, which is a transitional home for Dallas-based men on parole. But as we learn in this episode, Forgiven Felons is expanding to new levels of influence.

They also share how Becky was instrumental as a steady force of unconditional love in Jay Dan's life during his battle with alcoholism and run-ins with the law in the late 90s and early 2000s.

Jay Dan has his own podcast called Background Check, which they also discuss. He is a walking soundbyte and never met a microphone he didn't like, which makes for an incredible episode of Being Becky!
