Praise for “Unlacing the Heart”

“A powerful and deeply moving work. Freeman leads us to understand that everyone is special and wisdom can come from anywhere. This book is an inspiration for anyone who has a servant’s heart, and a desire to make a difference in the world.” Larry C. Spears

Author-editor, Insights on Leadership, The Spirit of Servant-Leadership

“Precious, heart-stretching, truthful, abrasive, and deep life encounters with men and women from the highest echelons of society to the homeless and alienated of the streets. The feelings are poignant, deep, and true. I have read this book twice and love every page. Truly wonderful writing.” Sue Mostellar, CSJ

The Henri Nouwen Society

“Via poignant autobiographical vignettes, he reminds us that the fine art of fundraising begins with listening… permitting donors to unlace their hearts and share their own sacred stories. This book will be a transformational read for fundraisers, development officers, and philanthropists!” William G. Enright Ph.D.
