Also, it's a good resource for anyone who is struggling
and looking for answers. The author is honest and real
about pain but hopeful about it not ending there.
I recommend this book to anyone who might be considering ending
their own life or seriously struggling with having purpose.
I am amazed at what this guy has done - and can do. He rides a surf board, swims, goes scuba diving, and other things that most people with arms and legs don't do.
Scattered throughout the pages of the book are also stories of people he met who had either disabilities or bad circumstances, yet overcame them. He is a motivational speaker, and gives a lot of advice on how to rise avove your circumstances. He is a Christian, an ordained evangelist, so he talks a lot in the book about depending on God and how God has helped him, and does help him.
I found myself to be encouraged, inspired, and convicted by reading this book. It is so easy to get overwhelmed with life, but after reading Nick's story, I realize all too often we give into our circumstances, and lose the battle.
I usually give my "read-in-one-sitting" status to a suspense type book, but this book was so interesting that I read it in one evening, and so I will bestow that status on it. I really recommend reading it.

Nick Vujicic has an incredible testimony-he was born with no arms and no legs, and he wholeheartedly believes God has a purpose for the way he was made. I was excited to read this book, because I wanted to hear Nick's story-to walk with him through his childhood, into his adolescent years, and up to his present life as a world-traveling speaker.
Unfortunately, Nick's story was told thematically, and it was intermixed with large portions of reader-directed inspirational speaking. After a few chapters, I felt pretty frustrated by this-I just wanted Nick's story, which on its own would have provided me with boatloads of inspiration. I enjoy biographies of amazing men like Nick, and I assumed that's what I was going to get. Instead, I mostly got Nick's message, illustrated with Nick's story.
Nick's message is extremely positive. Yet, I often found myself wonderful how much of it was derived from God's Word and how much of it came from other motivational speakers that Nick has heard or befriended. Along with Nick, I believe God has made him perfectly for the purpose he has for him, and I believe Nick will continue to impact folks for as long as he lives. However, from the book I sensed a message that is still in the focusing stages-it seemed at times to jump from place to place, at times to cover ground I've heard other motivational speakers cover, and at times to repeat points made in various other places in the book.
I have a hard time saying any of that, because I love Nick Vujicic!Read more ›
I've seen him via Youtube on Facebook, but when his book became available, I had to read it! What a powerhouse of a book! Nick Vujicic (Voy-a-chich) shares with us his many years of experience (27 years) and wisdom as he worked through his childhood, teens and early adulthood without arms and legs. For such a young man, he has much to teach us through his trials and his reliance on the Lord.
Some of the attributes he knew he needed include:
A powerful sense of purpose
Hope so strong that it cannot be diminished
Faith in God and the infinite possibilities
Love and self-acceptance
Attitude with altitude
A courageous spirit
Willingness to change
A trusting heart
Hunger for opportunities
The ability to assess risks and to laugh at life
A mission to serve others first
That's one tall order, and, no, he didn't always succeed instantly in each situation, but with the grace of God and loving, Christian parents and family, he continued on. Nick's book, Life Without Limits, will encourage you to overcome the obstacles in your own life and come out on top. He's convinced "that for every disability you have, you are blessed with more than enough ability to overcome your challenges.Read more ›
