They make their home in Spokane, Washington, where Ward enjoys mountain biking, kayaking, fly-fishing, and his eight grandchildren.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Triumph Born of Ashes is the uplifting story of a brave life. Mike Buckingham fought, despite cataclysmic physical damage and pain and lifelong handicaps, to forgive and have a strong walk with God. From horror, he went on to make his voice heard across America, fiercely attacking driving after drinking, and alcoholism, and educating thousands about these terrible dangers. These arresting descriptions and details of his life, both personal and professional, will reach into your heart."

-Dr. David Clarke, Christian psychologist, speaker and author

"Laying out the story of Mike Buckingham in careful detail as only a brother could do, Ward Buckingham shares with us not just a family chronicle, but a clear narrative and commentary on the sovereignty of God. The old adage of “so you think you had it bad” pales in light of this realistic and transparent story of one man’s life of sacrifice and dedication to others, and, ultimately, to God."

-George Dakin, pastor, Wabash Presbyterian Church, Auburn, WA

"Faced with incredible adversity, Trooper Michael Buckingham chose to make this world a better and safer place. His conviction to educating young drivers to make great choices is unparalleled. For those of us who got to meet Mike and call him friend, our lives are better because of him. This book is a wonderful example of taking charge—getting passionate about what you believe in."

-Michael Weightman, road safety coordinator, Insurance Corporation of British Columbia

"Mike Buckingham truly impacted thousands of people with his life and his message. Having the honor and privilege of speaking alongside Mike on multiple occasions, I saw what Mike was able to see, as people—teenagers—listened to his story. They were glued to him, wrapped up in his words and his message. After the presentation, countless kids would come up just to stand near him, as if something of his life would rub off. To say that Mike Buckingham was an extraordinary individual falls short of capturing his spirit and passion for people. He was a living example of how God can take the worst of a situation and turn it to good."

-Pat Ellis, crisis intervention coordinator and chaplain for police and fire departments, Kent, WA
