Mike Wilson, paralyzed by a drunk driver as a teenager, shares wisdom about overcoming challenges and facing difficult or tragic situations
— Mike Wilson has published a brand new book which tells his remarkable, inspiring story of recovery from a drunk driving accident that left him paralyzed as a teenager. The book reveals how faith, courage and determination can inspire people to deal with tragedy and difficulty in their lives.
“I made a single mistake as a teenager, and it resulted in me spending the rest of my life in a wheelchair,” said Wilson, whose injuries were caused by the drunk driver of a car he decided to get into. “But this wheelchair is not the end of my story. Rather, it is the beginning. With God’s help, we can turn tragedy into triumph.” Wilson’s book is aimed at an audience of teens and young adults, who may benefit from hearing his message of strength and faith in the face of adversity.
As the book describes, turning tragedy into triumph was not easy for Wilson. He had many health problems as the result of his injuries as well as many periods of emotional lows that he had to overcome. That is part of the book’s message: This can be hard, but it is possible, if one is armed with a positive attitude of gratitude, a friendly spirit and sense of humor. Wilson, who was a fine athlete in his youth, persevered and met every challenge he had to face.
Wilson’s Pastor, Dr. James Wright of the Maranatha Fellowship Church, shared his thoughts on the book, saying, “I watched him struggle, but not give up on life nor his divine destiny. He pressed on and became a man who has a heart to help encourage others. He is a man who loves Jesus with all his heart. His book was written to help all who struggle in any area of their lives – physically, emotionally, and most of all, spiritually.”
