If Christ is not introduced early in life as a personal Savior, anything can happen. Life Lessons Learned in the Backseat of a Ford is the story of a boy turned teen turned anti-establishmentarian turned Christ-follower. It is one person's story, but it is the story of many who choose to search for life in self-destruction and self-pity. The answer is the same answer it has been for over 2000 years - a relationship with a God who actually cares, searches for and discovers a person who needs to know there is a God who loves him or her. From living in an old car to sharing the love of Christ in the streets and churches of North Africa, Scotland and America, this is the story of how God can transform one of the most selfish of individuals into one whom God can use for His Kingdom.
