My Joseph Journey

In this series, Phil reflects on his two years as a Christian in prison and how it influenced his faith and marriage. As a devoted follower of Christ before, during, and after his prison experience, Phil often finds his experience compared with the classic story of Joseph in the book of Genesis. Here, he relates various aspects of the experience, from the food to the church and how each affected his walk.
