Having been born and raised in the most impoverished region of Arkansas - the Deltas - Larry D. Freeman miraculously managed to emerge with a heart for humanity, a mind to maintain, a passion for prosperity and a sense to sustain in life…all to the glory of God. He is the son of a carpenter and homemaker-turned-teacher, plus a sibling of five (two brothers and three sisters).
Throughout high school, college and license of the gospel, Larry has been endeavoring through God’s guidance with success in the forgotten and neglected mission fields of the Arts and Entertainment Industry. He has written and produced many commercials with sometimes serving as spokesperson for such companies as Arkansas Department of Health (Stamp Out Smoking), Car-Mart®, Century 21®, FaceLifters®, U.S. Remodelers®, Four Seasons® Sunrooms, DPI Teleconnect® and AOL® Time Warner cable systems. He has had small but meaningful appearances in films featuring the following: Ben Affleck, Antonio Banderas, Andy Griffith, Ashley Judd, Kelly Preston, Billy Bob Thornton and Randy Travis. His professional works of 20 years span the Internet, film, print, radio, television and theater along with feature writing, editing, formatting and graphically designing numerous newsletters, newspapers, brochures and magazines for churches, non-profit organizations and various companies.
Larry has served two consecutive terms with due diligence for the State of Arkansas on the Governor's Advisory Council as member of the Emergency Medical Services Advisory Council. He has been named to the Outstanding Young Men of America, Cambridge/Empire Who's Who Among Empowering Executives & Professionals, Marquis Who's Who in America and The National Registry of Who's Who. Larry was awarded the 2007 Congressional Order of Merit by the National Republican Congressional Committee.

"I am truly blessed to be able to pull valuable insight from my many oh-now-I-get-it experiences in such a way that I can give easy-to-follow-and-understand, sound and necessary instruction to truly endow people to help themselves. I desire to empower people and prohibit dream abandonment. After all and as I have heard, there is no true success without a successor. As long as there is knowledge, wisdom, understanding and spiritual insight to impart coupled with a willing vessel to exchange ideas and put them to good use, I am there."
Personal, Professional & Publishing Commitment:
I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O Lord: that I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works. Psalm 26:6-7 (KJV)
