Host Jeremy C. Park talks with Lindsay Holloway, Founder and Executive Director of This is Living Ministries, who shares her personal story of being given a second chance after facing addiction and incarceration, then working in recovery and ministry and launching the nonprofit in 2018 with her husband. This is Living Ministries is a 12-month program to house, disciple, and train women who have dealt with addiction issues, incarceration, and trauma. During the interview, Lindsay highlights their efforts and program, the impact on the women served, and how the community can get involved across the state of Tennessee.

- Lived a life of addiction/ incarceration. Given a 2nd chance 12 years ago. Started working in recovery and ministry. Moved back to my hometown 2015. I got married in 2016.

- TILM is a 12-month program to house, disciple, & train women who have dealt with addiction issues, incarceration & trauma. 6 months of training with no cost to the students. Then at 6 months the ladies begin working and paying off debts. Save up money to get their own place, parenting plans to return their children to their custody.. We serve the whole state of TN. TDOC parole approved. Recovery program approved.
- We just started our capital campaign “The Jabez Fund” in order to build more homes to help more women in TN. We envision 30 acres, another home for mothers to be able to get help with their child still in their custody, a home for women on parole. We also wish to do permanent housing apartments for those in recovery.
