"One of the sweetest possessions Debra Kelley owns is the key to her front door.

I pay rent, light bill, water bill, cable. All the things a normal person would pay. I cant tell you how good it feels, she said with a wide grin on her face. I actually look forward to getting my bills.

A key, mail, going to work simple things equal freedom for her. After being in prison more than 20 years, DK, as her friends call her, didnt think she would ever be free again.

Kelley said good things started happening when the Rev. Tamika Robertson, pastor of Dixon Memorial United Methodist Church in Nashville and a chaplain at the Tennessee Prison for Women, started a chapel service at the prison."
