Back in that #badgelife

Took me almost ten years after college but I have finally jumped into the deep end of a career.

I’ve dipped my toes and taken a few swims but I’m ready to develop, learn, grow, and make a name for myself in my career field. I may just be in the first few steps but believe me: I will make a difference.

Lesson: CHASE YOUR MF DREAMS. Success and happiness is different for everyone. DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY.

Remember Alesha and Sean from earlier in the week? Well, this EMS family closed on their new construction home today!

They were a referral from other Heroes. Thank you Alesha and Sean for trusting me with not only the sale of your home but also letting me help guide you along in the new build buying process. It is so rewarding when I get help assist on both sides for amazing heroes.

Thank you to Karen Trevino and Rockin TLK for all your amazing-ness!

I put myself through a lot in this life. I put my family through even more.


I’m sure my mother never imagined her son would serve nearly a decade incarcerated in TDCJ. And I’m sure my father never imagined all his hard labor under the sun would bear this fruit. And my brother, as proud and tough as he may seem, I’m sure wished had his brother home throughout his childhood.

Without my family’s support, I just don’t know if my transformation is possible. The prayers, visits, phone calls, worry, financial burden. They suffered with me. Endlessly I will be thankful. I ask God Almighty to bestow blessings on them today and forever. I love you all so so much.

Double heroes closing! Both Denilson and Judy Flores work for TDCJ.

It's so great when I can help a fellow TDCJ work family member! They were referred to me by awesome Hero clients/friends. I am so excited to have helped them in the purchase of their FIRST home. I just know there are great memories to come for them. ❤

Shout out to Tracy at Rockin TLK for the amazing gift set and Karen Treviño - Canopy Mortgage for always making things happen.

I am finally off Parole 🤠👏🏼.
I recieved a 3 year sentence and made my first parole.

I served 10 months on a 3 year sentence. After Bexar County Jail my first trip was to Garza West Unit for intake and processing for about 3 weeks, then Willacy Unit down in Raymondville, and my last 6 months was at Joe Ney Unit in Hondo.
When I was sent to Willacy Unit, I was so far from San Antonio. I thought I was never going to get a visit. Then I was sent to Hondo which is not to far from S.A. My first visit was with my mom and daughter. My mom had stage 4 terminal cancer and by this time she was in a wheel chair. I was so happy to finally see her and my little girl. My wife and daughter would come visit every weekend, which made time go by fast, I would look forward to seeingy wife and daughter every weekend.
It a great feeling to know I am finally off paper. No more U.A's, no more meetings, and no more P.O. 👍. Thank you יהוה for being there with me the whole time.
Love you mom R.I.P 🙏.

Sometimes selling a home can hold bittersweet moments.

For Sean and Alesha, this is the house that their kids know as HOME, so it's emotional. On the other hand, this EMS family will be closing on their new construction house on Friday. It was such a gift getting to know this family, and I know once they are are settled and memories start to be made, that house will become their HOME. The Simmonds family was referred to me by some of my amazing clients and i just want to say THANK YOU FOR TRUSTING ME WITH YOUR FRIENDS. ❤

Thank you to Tracy at Rockin TLK for the beautiful closing gift basket and to Christie Herrin over at
Texas Title - Conroe for knocking it out of the park once again.

Most recruits starting their first day at the training academy have no idea what working inside a prison is like.

However, most understand that it’s a whole different world from anything they are used to.

For Officer Jeremy Mola, one quality that the academy emphasized beyond any other prepared him to maintain the safety of inmates, officers, and the public: confidence.

Congratulations to the 10th graduating class of the Strength Through Restoration, Independence, Vision and Empowerment (STRIVE) program at the Mountain View Unit!



These 16 graduates earned their certifications in various fields through the reentry program, which was created to help inmates develop important skills they can later use in the work force once released.

Skills that are emphasized include business communication, computer skills, OSHA training, and other training that is crucial to a modern work environment.

The program is a partnership between four TDCJ divisions, @windhamschooldistrict , and volunteer groups.

Since 2016, Robbie Lane has volunteered his time with the Kyle Correctional Center inmates as the unit’s pastor, providing pastoral counseling to them twice monthly.



As a Certified Volunteer Chaplain’s Assistant (CVCA), Robbie leads the weekly Inside/Out Dad program where he mentors incarcerated fathers on being positive role models to their family and community when released.

During the pandemic, Robbie’s willingness to help never wavered. His commitment to #Serving4Change and the impact he has on the inmates he mentors is what keeps him motivated.

Hi my name is Cordero Stevenson #1873901.

I’ve been locked up almost 10 years for a bad choice I made in the past which is exactly that, my past. I have no more than three more years. I am 35 years young from Houston, Texas. My birthday is July 10th, which makes me a Cancer. Some people feel my heart is bigger than my body its self, I am big on treating others how you want to be treated. I have a ‘try it’ type of spirit, meaning I like to try new things. I’m 6 1”, 220. I work out a lot because health is next to wealth, so if I sound like somebody thats worth your time, try me out I could be that friend you’re missing.
