Dear Users of NewLife Behavior Curriculum:

A few years ago we started seriously looking at producing our courses in what we call "bound workbooks" with attractive fronts in full-color. Our two-fold goal: (A) Create a professional appearance to "sell" chaplains/wardens on approving NLB classes and, (B) Conserve all of us time. Energy and money.

First, we sat down to add up our actual cost of using a copier to print all 13 lessons (front and back), collate and staple them. Each lesson contains 12 letter-size pages. Our final number ended up being $10.40 per set.

Second, we realized that everyone does not use the best paper quality and some copiers produce smudged, crooked, creased, and often hard-to-read copies. This does not make a good impression for the ministry or NLBM. Inside prisons, all "loose paper" is viewed as "clutter" in a "lock-down" and, therefore, discarded. A student's bound workbook is rarely lost. We also like for students to have access to all 13 lessons on the first day in case he or she is transferred or released.

So, NLBM has spent money to begin producing our courses in bound workbook fashion - one at a time (based on frequency of use) - until all 14 are available in this format. To further reduce costs, we produce thousands and make them available to our "ministry partners" for $6 each, plus shipping. This saves ministries using them and puts some back for us to reprint them when necessary. We now have four courses ready for use:

Next on schedule is Course III: "Parenting Matters."

Let us know if we can supply you with these. In some instances, we can ship workbooks directly to a facility (via the chaplain) in time for your new class to start. As you know, 25-35 workbooks is not easily taken inside by volunteers. It is similar to copying the lessons - you CAN do it but - there is a better way. You can call us (361-855-3372), fax us (361-855-7469), email us (nlbcasa@yahoo.com), or order through our website (www.nlbm.org).

We want to help. We want you to make the most favorable impression for yourself as well as NewLife Behavior Ministries. We want to save you time, energy and money. Thank God for what you are doing to glorify Him and reach the lost.
