“Refusal of Persona Non Grata Status. Inside the Heart and Soul of a Convicted Felon: The Struggle to Retain Personhood This volume will take you inside not merely a physical prison, but the spiritual battle to stay focused as a valued human being. This work captures a personal experience to remain a person and not become a number. In this exertion, I reflect on the twelve stages of spiritual, physical, mental, and emotional warfare that I encountered daily. These skirmishes are not written in any manual, but they are real in the heart and soul of anyone who has been incarcerated. So many of those incarcerated become the victim of failure to the spiritual and psychological warfare that greets an individual upon the loss of freedom. Unbroken Anguish, Relentless Battles, Shaping Destiny or Impacting History, as well as Humility and Wisdom are among the twelve stages of warfare that must be fought and won in order to retain personhood. The Refusal of Persona Non Grata Status represents a vital key that will unlock the door of hope for a positive future. The Refusal of Persona Non Grata Status assures the individual that in spite of the opposing odds, giving up and succumbing to failure or a lower class designation is not an option, nor an alternative. Allow me to interject, all prisons are not constructed with concrete and steel. There are many emotional, financial, mental, and spiritual prisons that have higher numerical populations than all the global criminal justice systems combined. In this exertion, the foundation has been lain to help anyone through any dilemma that would threaten their personhood. This is a clarion call to anyone who may have felt victimized or demeaned in character. The Refusal of Persona Non Grata Status will help you to reach a victorious plateau over the twelve battle stages of spiritual warfare that seek to destroy your personhood.

About the Author:

At the close of the twentieth century and the beginning of the new millennium, Mark Carven Olds has evolved into a sage voice of leadership in the African American community and beyond. His emergence has been spurred by a unique and multifaceted experiences that have gained him respect and influence in the academic, faith, and political communities. He has earned a Master of Nonprofit Organizations degree from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio. He did post graduate studies at Case’s history department. He did doctoral studies in Interdisciplinary Studies with a Specialization in Public Policy/Health at the Union Institute & University in Cincinnati, Ohio. He is always striving for new plateaus to enhance the quality of life for all humanity. He has founded a number of nonprofit organizations that have had local and national impact. His latest endeavor, the Midwest Minority Think Tank for Public Policy, Leadership, and Service, LLC., (The Think Tank) holds the promise of transformation for a people and generations to come. He has taken the stand to set forth an institution with “A Solutions Strategy” impetus. The Think Tank will produce solutions. In addition, the solutions will come with a clearly defined strategy to move from idea to implementation. The goal is to have a reliable institution that clearly allows any member to set forth a solution that can help elevate a group of people; whereby, the whole of society will enjoy the fruitfulness of the effort. The Midwest Minority Think Tank for Public Policy, Leadership, and Service, LLC. will not make official statements on any issue, unless a transparent solution shall come attached. Public policy makers, leadership figures, and those who purport to serve will no longer find refuge behind mounds of political rhetoric or mountains of in-effective verbosity. By setting forth doable and workable solutions in a format easily comprehensible by the general population, The Think Tank shall make it impossible to say that there was no solution. Mark Carven Olds has recently developed the “SupportUpliftRestoreEnrich” (S.U.R.E.) Curriculum for individual, congregational, or community enlightenment. The S.U.R.E. Curriculum will bring to light an axis that Personal Transformation Equals Community Reformation. These eight volumes shall proffer examples of educational and spiritual tools to improve the quality of life for individual no matter their stand as a launch point.

Book Description CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 44 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.1in.REFUSAL of PERSONA NON GRATA STATUS (Inside the Heart and Soul of a Convicted Felon: The Struggle to Retain Personhood) I understand the passion, the allure to actively engage policy making as a full-fledged participant, shaping destiny or impacting history. As a Black-American male (Black slave heritage), my people have been historically denied access to the room of global policy makers. Presently, imprisonment has locked me out the room. Daily, I combat an onerous internal debate, How do I overcome collateral sanctions that a system has instituted to assign me permanent persona non grata status Mark Carven Olds, MCO, CNM, CPE an experienced author, clergyman, convicted felon, entrepreneur, flawed visionary, life coach, servant-leader, social theoretician, and theologian. Unbrokenly, the wretched anguish of incarceration had sought ways to sink the toxic claws of depression into my psyche. The goal presented by this intangible foe had been to release a negative emotional venom that would attack my mental stability. The daily battle (sometimes a skirmish, other times a war) had confronted me with passionate challenges. An elongated isolation phase (separation from family, friends, and society) will attempt to raise a wall of resistance against the inner peace that faith had delivered. In spite of the location, faith had led me to trust God for His perfect peace. I had taken solace in my faith, which did not serve as a crutch due to my imprisonment. If it were not for my faith, the wretched anguish would have possibly gained an in-road into my well-being. When you have been robbed of personal liberty, the reality of an unnatural environment can act as a host for relentless agony. I had chosen not to surrender my character to the emotional and mental pressures that accompany a lengthy prison designation. I had continuously implored my Creator for the courage, the desire, and the strength to redeem the time. By faith I confessed, my youth is renewed like an eagle. I had learned that each millisecond houses a creative thought too precious to escape unexplored. Upon this recognition, the battle had then intensified in each molecular structure of my emotional, physical, and spiritual makeup. No matter the depths of the isolationist attacks, I had to remain vigilant to: 1) place a guard on my lips, 2) bridle my tongue, and 3) turn my ears away from poisonous speech. In an intense concentration of characters, feelings, and personalities, I also had to retain a spiritual sensitivity to: 1) principalities, 2) powers of darkness, and 3) wickedness in high places. My spiritual sensitivity kept me alert to the always covert counter-productive activities. Under the pressure of adversity, it was my faith that revealed any dismay intended to distort my ability to function. Incarceration had prevented my interface capacity with people of like faith as well as societys decision-makers. This made me especially susceptible to the surfacing of subtle attacks of anger and frustration. It was only Gods peace that continually constrained my spirit and revealed the would-be agony as an attempt to cause me emotional andor spiritual discomfort. If I had fainted in the days of adversity, I would had acknowledged that my strength was at a minimal. Through faith, I had begun the transformation to become A Flawed Visionary, who would overwhelmingly conquer any situation present or future. Ostracized from people of faith and key decision-makers, I had to rapidly arrive at a place whereby I relied upon the Lords revelation knowledge. As a resident in a penal colony, Gods peace was a luxury that I could not afford to be without for even a moment. This item ships from La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781512209198
