A Remarkable Journey Of Faith

— On a cold April day, Ben Hylden tried on his suit coat for the upcoming school prom, then sped toward nearby Park River, ND, for an appointment. Running late and driving too fast, he lost control of his car on ice, flipped the car and was thrown out the passenger's door-plunging face first into an icy field. Ben's face and body were crushed, along with his dreams of being a basketball star. As his battered body lay in the field, Ben's life seemed to be coming to an end. However, it turned out to only be the beginning of a remarkable journey of faith that showed him glimpses of life beyond this world, and gave him a new perspective on what matters most. Valeria Teles interviews Ben Hylden — the author of “Finding Faith in the Field.” Ben Hylden grew up a dairy farm near Park River, ND where he went high school and played basketball, football, and track. However, on April 6, 2007 at the age of 16, everything changed. Ben was in a near-death car accident that left him with a 5% chance of survival through all of his injuries. Miraculously, Ben did survive and began on a journey of recovery and faith, where he was inspired to write a book, Finding Faith in the Field during his junior year in college and start a career in public speaking where he shares his story.
