Synopsis: Lines in the Gravel is an engaging, oftenhumorous, series of snapshots about Al Ainsworth's experiences growing up in Star, Mississippi. It is one story--told by a collection ofstories--of family and faith that transcends his own experience toconnect with others who seek to perpetuate their own values through thestories they tell and re-tell.
Lines in the Gravel willnot only remind you of your own childhood stories but will also remindyou of the importance of being intentional about establishing your ownfamily legacy through the stories that your family repeats time and timeagain.
Praise for Lines in the Gravel:
"Growing up in the South Mississippi family that I did, sports and stories wereconstant companions. The sport or the level at which it was being played didn't matter. Much of what it took for me to have success in the NFLcan be traced back to games all over South Mississippi and theconversations that happened in the Favre household afterward. Lines in the Gravel reminds us of the value of our stories to shape who we are and who we aspire to be."
Three-Time National Football League MVP
"The places of our childhood may have been different, but I recognized a common thread between Al Ainsworth's stories in Lines in the Gravel and those from my own childhood. The same values of faith andfamily that I learned growing up in rural Mississippi continue to be thevalues that guide me as the leader of my own home and as the leader ofyoung men today. Al reminds us all to express our values of faith andfamily through the stories that we tell."
