How exactly did an average Joe turn a bankrupt company into a 30-branch business that
earns over $300 million in revenue and gives 10 percent of its profits to ministries across the world?
Wieland has asked himself that question hundreds of times—and in the end, he wrote a book to figure it
His conclusion? Success is an intricate and beautiful tapestry woven from the uncommon
threads of business, family, and faith.
Unlike many books that discuss faith, Wieland never preaches perfection. In fact,
it’s his honesty about his own struggles — between worship and human instinct, between
sacrifice and indulgence, between sharing his love of God with others and appreciating people right
where they are — that makes Uncommon Thread so unique. Wieland uses the lens of his own life to
examine important topics such as hypocrisy, racism, parenting, and religion. He even tackles what
happens when you take someone into your home only to later find out that he shot a lady in the head and
left her for dead.
His is the story of a life well spent. Uncommon Threads offers both self-deprecating
stories of his foibles and failures as well as inspirational tales of luck and leadership—a gripping
combination that makes this book a must-read.
