Yes. I'm hardened now. Tough. Street smart. Nobody messes with me because last week I spent a day behind bars.

Short version…..

…..prison pat downs are a whole lot different than TSA

…..people will kill for your hair extensions

…..I'm not sexy behind bars either

…..Crazy Eyes did not want me to be her wife

…..Prison uniforms could stand a little bling

…..we've all done things we're not proud of – nobody's perfect

  1. Wow. Wow. Wow. Kelly thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I just don't have any other words. Damn. A motivational speaker with no words. A first. 

  2. Yep. It pretty much left me without words too, Linda. You just should have been there. And FYI….I think this would make a nice story for a speech wouldn't it?

  3. More Mulletts?  Ha!  Not only was this a moving piece, but you crack me up with your little observations like thinking there would be more mullets!  So so funny.  Thank you though for this amazing journey.  And, I can attest to your prep as I was there in your room while you packed for this event!  So glad for you that you brought your best (as always) and left room for the magic to happen.  So many blessings Kelly!!!!!  Thank you for helping those women and their children.

  4. Your writing and insight is so moving, Kelly!  What a gift you were to those women both for your encouraging message and the laughter you brought!  Love, love, love this story!!!
