"Imelda's story has written an indelible
footprint in my own soul. It is a footprint that
wants to venture to places where only the brave
would dare go... a footprint that carries the
mark of our friendship, that knows no bounds...
knows no distance.
I was a witness to her pain and agony. I praise
and thank God for gifting her an Easter experience...a
new life indeed! The Barefooted Soul is a living
testament of God's faithfulness and unfailing

"It has been my privilege to know Imelda
Roberts and to learn of her story. The Barefooted
Soul is an inspirational story of one soul's transformational
journey to realize the promise of her inward spirit.
It is the story of humanity's evolution in consciousness
to embrace those who, while appearing to be different
or apart, are the other parts of ourselves. She
writes compelling stories which help us to know
that we cannot be complete while making others
invisible and denying their full humanity. I am
uplifted by her message and her living example
of courage, faith, undying hope, undiminished
spirit, and compassion for others. Could it be
that "the barefooted" among us are leading
the planet to rediscover its collective soul?"

"Imelda has added her story to the archive
of memory-making of Filipinos in
the diaspora. Each of us seem to be drawn to the
recall and recovery of
cultural and personal memories that are now begging
to be rediscovered and
retold as we find that there is now space and place
to honor those stories.
Imelda has done her part...now do yours."
