Thomas Ford's new book embraces his journey to recovery and finding peace with God’s plan.

Sadly, I am the first member of my family who is not going to heaven when I die.

An estimated 17.6 million American adults meet standard diagnostic criteria for an alcohol use disorder, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Author Thomas John Ford recovered from being an alcoholic and now has found his place in Gods plan.

Ford’s first book ""Who Cares? ‘When the Saints Come Marching In’" reveals his own trials and tribulations in life as a recovering alcoholic, along with his strange upbringing.

"I come from a very poor family with substance abuse and domestic violence issues," Ford said. "I overcame extreme shyness and eventually was giving public lectures at high school assemblies, public forums, church conventions and AA meetings."

This book was written for those seeking the meaning behind verses in the Bible and God’s plan. He discusses different religions, his ideas on evolution, creation and nationalism. Ford uses questions, illustrations and humor to stimulate an honest search for his impression of the truth in Gods plan.

"Sadly, I am the first member of my family who is not going to heaven when I die," Ford said.
