The Walk A Journey Through Changes of the Heart With Grace, Truth, and Purpose! The book you now find yourself unable to put down, The Walk, is not by random accident. It's by DIVINE design, a precise moment that has been ordained since the beginning of all beginnings. You see-this book was written for you. It took 64 years to write, yet it will never truly be finished, because there will always be something, that personally calls out to you, to challenge, to question. In fact, we live in a world and at a time, where the status quo in virtually everything ought to be questioned, and where appropriate, changed. The Walk and your personal journey, begins with an understanding that, if you are to succeed in attaining your personal highest and best, of actually realizing and living your life purpose, you must first embrace a beginner's mind. This distinct state of being, virtually wipes the slate clean as to everything you think you know, the illusion of knowledge, and one of the greatest obstacles to you moving forward. In effect, you'll be required to get out of your own way. It is this, that will lead to you experiencing a dramatic transformation a virtual, no, literal, changing of your heart. There will surely be obstacles along the path, but know this - you will most assuredly be making progress and I'll be guiding you always. I will be giving you regular counsel as needed, and GRACE will always be present to empower us both, and that GRACE will lead to TRUTH and that TRUTH, will lead to PURPOSE. Grace! Now there s a word that I believe is grossly under appreciated and stunningly misunderstood, at least, when DIVINE GRACE is in mind. I have contended for years, that if we were able to fully grasp, the unfathomable depth of this attribute of THE CREATOR, and how it has always and everywhere impacted our lives, we would collapse to our knees in worship, and would dare not, no, could not, utter a word. As we witness our petty self-serving issues evaporate before our eyes, one by one, we will be enabled to see just how trivial they were. For the first time, our hearts would be in tune with HIS. What about Truth? Don't we always want to know the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth? So help us G-D! If everything you presently believe to be true, is a lie when would you want to know? This journey will reveal to you, perhaps for the very first time in your life TRUTH. Not the truth that is passed down from family members, nor the truth that emanates from wanting to be accepted by others and certainly not the truth that the entertainment media espouses but true TRUTH that is revealed to your change of heart - by THE AUTHOR OF TRUTH! Perhaps one of the most asked questions by all of human kind is this "What was I uniquely created for? What is my life Purpose? As we journey together, when merged with your change of heart, and coupled with the presence of bottomless GRACE, armed with clear and unmistakable TRUTH, you will know your purpose because you will sense a fire within, such like you have never known! Trust me when I tell you this you are going to be more than mildly surprised at what you discover. I was! What force could have changed the heart of a person that at one time, was a sworn enemy of the gay/lesbian community, convinced that they were a scourge upon the earth, a blight upon all that was Holy, a people condemned to eternal darkness, to one who is now a committed advocate, a person proudly proclaiming a message of equality and a level playing field? One word: GRACE. While reading The Walk - A Journey Through Changes of the Heart With Grace, Truth, and Purpose! you will have the courage to challenge what you believe to be true.

Alan Freedman has been a successful businessman and philanthropist both in Canada and the United States for over 45 years and is a lifelong student of life and life-change. He is a voracious reader and one who is constantly challenging and questioning the veracity of what he has held to be true as to any number of themes to that point in time.
Alan and his wife Fran have 6 children (one gay) and are avid animal lovers, having co-founded Morning Starr Animal Sanctuary in 2001. Alan is a passionate writer, humanitarian and environmentalist, committed to the safety and sustainability of the animal and natural treasures we've been entrusted with.Review:
Is there anyone of us who can honestly say we have not had to work through our ego issues? Thinking we "know it all" and waking up to the shocking realization that it s all made up, Alan Freedman shows us how humility and vulnerability, combined with finding God, brings us back to the truth...that Love is all there is. --Lori S. Rubenstein JD, Author of Forgiveness: Heal Your Past and Find the Peace You Deserve
The Walk by Alan Freedman is an unveiling of heart and soul from someone who has been through transformation. Alan has experienced religion in two different expressions, that both ended up in ritual and routine. He is now an advocate of relationships. Early in the book, Alan met God in a new depth, through Alan s failure as a husband. He came to realize that being a celebrity Christian was empty and without purpose. God showed Alan his own heart and began setting Alan free when he began to love his bride like Christ loves the Church. Alan s story echoes with many of us. It is a good thing, God did not show him too far into the future, or Alan may have turned away in fear and not found fulfillment.
The Walk is to be read like a thoughtful stroll, not a sprint. It will challenge you and if you let it...change you. --Lee Balinas. - M. Div., Ordained Baptist Minister
When the Berlin wall was taken down and both sides were exposed and free, it took a lot of courage and braun to accomplish such a thing. It was believed it was worth the risk. When a person is willing to take down their own walls and expose themselves in order to have freedom of the heart, mind and soul, that takes even more courage and an enormous inner strength. For Alan, it too was worth the risk.
Anyone willing to do such a thing and then to put it out there for the world to see, some to judge and many to learn from, it is worth taking the time to explore such a revelation.
This book should be read with an open heart and mind and a willingness to take the risk and the journey that Alan took to have his inner freedom and quite possibly your own! --Sheina Jacobson
