A Q&A With Author Nick Vujicic

You came to Christ at a young age; have you ever felt despondent enough (as a Christian) to consider taking your own life?

I gave my life to Jesus at age fifteen when I read in the Bible that Jesus knew that the works of God would be displayed through the blind man in John 9. However, before having faith in Jesus, I was angry at God and blamed Him for my lack of limbs and the fact He didn't seem to care. I thought He’d forgotten me or wasn't real at all was because He didn't answer me when I asked with much faith for limbs miraculously. Neither did He answer me when I asked why He had done this. Because of being bullied at school, experiencing a lot of negative attention, feeling like I was a burden to my parents, and not seeing a right future, I attempted to commit suicide by drowning myself in a bath tub. As I was in the process, the thought of leaving my parents with much grief helped me to not go through with the suicide. It was by God's grace that I am still here, and I can hear the words ring true in Jeremiah 29: 11-14.

What advice can you offer to other people who are mentally or physically disabled, and feel like their life is "over" and worthless?

Any negative lies and thoughts that come in are not from God if the statements are not in-sync with the Word, the heart of God. Every day, we must pray that the Lord guards our hearts and minds as we battle with principalities and powers of darkness. We have the truth. Remind yourself of the truth of your identity, purpose and destiny in Christ. Put on the full armor of God. Ask God for the gift of faith to believe every loving word of the Bible and the discipline to have time in worship or prayer or reading of the Scriptures to further the growth of your faith. Take one day at a time. We all have a fear of being lonely. Some have been abandoned, but Jesus is with you. Trust Him, and if you don't know Him, seek Him.

Describe an average day for Nick? How long it takes to get ready in the mornings?

As a teenager, I wanted to prove to myself that I could be independent, and it would take me an hour to get ready, brush my teeth, go to the restroom, shower and dress myself. These days I like to focus on what gives me more joy and save my energy for the things that are truly rewarding after proving to myself that I could be independent. So, I have caregivers who take care of me and get me ready especially when traveling.

How did you meet your wife?

My wife Kanae and I fell in love at the top of a Bell Tower in McKinney, Texas at the "Adriatica.” The fully story is in my book, but it was at a night where I only spoke to 16 people, and we watched the Butterfly Circus. I shared about the ministry's goals and heart in reaching the world. Fireworks were in our minds and hearts when our eyes connected that night... and for the rest of the story, get the book.

What qualities or characteristics attracted you to her? Do you plan to have children soon?

She is my best friend, and I adore her. She has unimaginable grace, love, patience and meekness. She is such a focused and gentle giver. We are hoping to have children in a few years, but you never know what the Lord wants.

Where do you live/attend church?

With living in Southern California but traveling quite a lot over the years, it has been difficult to find a home church that we truly see our children growing up in long term. But we genuinely enjoy the fellowship of the Apostolic Christian Church in Pasadena and love their hearts in valuing the family-style congregation.

You minister around the world to children, churches and businessmen. What message is on your heart at the moment?

In such a world and generation, there is so much information and entertainment and vicious pressure to be someone you're not yet or to get something you don't have yet. The message to preach is the truth. To know our true worth, knowing that we are all loved, and we are here for a greater purpose.

Tell us about your book - what inspired you to write it, what do you hope it will achieve, who is it for?

Before writing Unstoppable, I personally went through two major life-changing experiences that I learnt so much in and through. I went through a personal crisis in December 2010. Then I met my wife and started courting her at the end of 2010. That's why I wrote Unstoppable. I love how God lets us go through difficult challenges to help each other and encourage one another. That's what family is for. I also speak, write, sing on YouTube "Something More" and act in the short film "Butterfly Circus." I want to communicate a message of hope and love that continues to evolve as I walk closer to Jesus.

Unstoppable: The Incredible Power of Faith in Action by Nick Vujicic is an inspirational story if there ever was one.

You've surely seen a video by Mr. Vijicic. If you are like me, I imagine it held your attention. He's a Christian and an advocate for folks with disability to live life to the fullest, to reject the stereotypes that disabled individuals often face, and live beyond discouragement.

This is his second book, here published by Waterbrook Press, that follows up his very successful first volume Life Without Limits. The cover gives you an idea of what you might be in for with this book and Mr. Vujicic. The subtitle"The Incredible Power of faith in Action" accurately defines the ground he covers.

The book begins with him telling you how successful and busy he has been. If that were to hit you wrongly, he will quickly mute it when he tells you the emotional crisis he has gone through the last few years. He relates that although the first book and speaking ministry have been successful, his company almost crashed at the low point of our economy. This shortly after he had expanded the company, hired new people, and let his parents pull up stakes to move here from Australia to help. His Dad is an accountant and a classic believer in fiscal responsibility! He fell into deep depression and really spares none of the gory details when he tells the story. What he learned and how he dealt with it is worthy reading. He relates to a secret suicide attempt in childhood because of the sadness of what he imagined his life would be. He encourages us in showing how he, a motivational speaker, had to relearn a lesson he should have known well. I can relate to the relearning thing for sure.

In another story he tells about the highs and lows of the journey of God bringing his wonderful wife to him. It is as gripping as a novel, except he draws out real life lessons from the ordeal.

Nick is at it again. This book is a book of hope. It reminds people that they have a life purpose and meaning.

"I've found that when I'm most confused about God's plan for me, when I'm seriously struggling to figure out what I should do to serve His purpose, He will place someone in my path or create a situation to reveal that purpose or to test whether I walk the talk" (19).

I like that Nick was real about his own struggles and wanting to help others get back on track. "If you feel yourself sliding into despair, drained of energy, and depleted of faith, ask yourself, 'What matters most to me? What gives me joy? What drives me and gives my life meaning? How can I get that back" (46)?

"When God calls you to do something, you may not understand or be enthusiastic at first. But you should always be passionate about Him, which means you will do anything for Him" (80).

I really liked reading about how Nick met his wife in chapter three. He shared his own insecurities about finding true love and it is so beautiful to read about how God planned it all out for him and Kanae.

I am thankful for the testimony Nick Vujicic continues to share through his ministries and books.

Unstoppable by Nick Vujicic © 2012 written by Jackie Paulson (BOOK #2)
This is the second book Nick has published. I want to thank Blogging for books for a free copy for my review. Vujicic is pronounced Voo~yi~chich). His disability did not stop him from enjoying adventures, fulfilling and meaningful career, and loving relationships. His goal is to share with you the unstoppable power of faith in action that has helped him create his own good life.
Nick wrote this book as he was so inspired by people who asked him for advice and guidance in dealing with challenges in their own lives. The chapters cover topics that were asked of him the most and include:
* Personal crises
* Relationship issues
* Career and job challenges
* Health and disability concerns
* Self destructive thoughts, emotions and addictions
* Bullying, persecution, cruelty, and intolerance
* Dealing with matters beyond our control
* How to reach out and serve others
* Finding balance in body, mind, heart and spirit

Nicks desire is to help you and inspire you to overcome whatever challenges you face.
I love the photos from years ago until now in the middle of the book too. What a personal touch!
Thank you blogging for books for my free copy for my honest review.

Format: Hardcover
Initially I wanted to read the book, because I was really interested in Nick's life. I was so inspired by the impact of his life and conferences around the globe. Last september he was in Mexico and his speech was broadcasted in TV.

The main topic of the book is about the "power of faith in action", going beyond our limits, physical or mental. And put into action our words or our beliefs. Nick's faith is well presented on each chapter, you can easily feel how he honors God in everything he does, and writes. His own life is an extreme example of the topic, and I'm sure it's not only inspiring to those with physical disabilities.

Unfortunately there were many things I didn't like about the book. First the long chapter about love and relationships, where Nick shares his love story of how he met his wife Kanae, and his advices on the subject. I'm not sure if it's only me but I found the chapter obviously personal, maybe too much actually. And there's a point where Nick shares his view about his past relationships, which according to him were allowed by God to learn. Let me say I'm not agree with that thought. We were given free will to take our own decisions, good or bad they'll have consequences and only by God's grace we learn from those bad decisions in the future.

The other thing is that half of the book, or more, is filled with personal experiences from other people: tv stars, students, ministry people, etc. They're awesome testimonies about putting faith into action, they're good examples of faith and courage, but then the book itself seems to be more a "collection of" inspiring testimonies than a book written by only one author.
