About The Book

When something that was once considered not worth saving suddenly finds worth again, we call it Reclaimed.

“I know all about reclaiming that which is lost. A common theme in my life — one established in poverty, that turned from education and opportunity into drugs, crime, and finally a life behind bars. But I also know firsthand of what it means to be called to a purpose...to turn everything around...and to have life and all its opportunities restored once again through God’s grace and favor.” —Jerry Blassingame

Jerry Blassingame was a child of poverty who witnessed the fall of friends and family before getting lured into a life of crime. Fast forward to today, and this man is the leader of a Community Development Center that houses, feeds, and trains men coming out of prison with skills to join the workforce. What does that transition look like?Reclaimed tells the story. This a story for all people — no matter your race or social status. Read it, listen, and most importantly, get involved.
