What You Need to Know About Me:
Marion L. Jones is the author of “Poems from within Me, a Recovering Addict,” and a motivational speaker who shares his story of how he made it through his circumstances, highlighting to audiences that there is a way out. Although the book has been a work in progress since 1998, the book became a full-time reality in 2006, a gift he says was given to him by God.

Jones is a former drug user and has been clean and in recovery since October 19, 2005. It was then that he realized that he could help others with his testimonial poems of encouragement.

In retrospect, he knows he was messed up as a child, as a result of his father’s death. During those painful times, he had no clue of the way his life was going and stuffed all the pain and hurt deep inside himself with no one to talk to about what he was going through. For a long time, he didn't even know himself, but he could see now that God was preparing him. Now with such clarity, he sees himself in his son who is sort of doing what he use to do but at a much earlier stage in life. Jones knows that he had to get clean and straighten up to be a better example for his son in order to keep his son from going down that same path.

Don't Get it Twisted

Don’t Get it Twisted

By Marion Jones

We tend to get off thinking we can do whatever we want in life and not repent.

Taking from our church and Pastor, and

not giving your tithes and offering, it’s somewhere else spent.

We’ve been taught, we’ve been given the Word each week.

It’s God face we should seek.

We are getting it all Twisted

Don’t set up camp in the your valley, and don’t pitch your tent.

The same ones that… Continue
