My Prison Became a Palace

A Book by John Alarid, Lead Pastor

This is the story of one man's journey from heroin addiction, crime, and prison to productive member of society, family man, community activist and pastor. After a spiritual awakening in a solitary confinement prison cell in Santa Fe, New Mexico, John completed advanced degrees in higher education with the support of a loving community. John came out of darkness into light. His story is an encouragement for anyone struggling with addiction or those who know someone that is addicted. A beautiful story of redemption and hope.
