Unstoppable by Nick Vujicic

unstoppable-by-nick-vujicic

I love Nick Vujicic and find his story incredibly inspirational, so I was eager to read his new book, Unstoppable. I finally got the chance when it was released in paperback (I was given a complementary copy by Waterbrook Press in exchange for this honest review). In Unstoppable Nick addresses many issues of our day. The back cover of the book lists: “personal crises; relationship issues; career and job changes; health and disability concerns; self-destructive thoughts, emotions, and addictions; bullying, persecution, cruelty and intolerance; imbalance in body, mind, heart, and sprit; [and] feeling out of control.”

I’d advise readers to choose the chapters that they feel apply to their circumstances and read those first. I didn’t use this approach and found myself feeling bogged down in topics that didn’t pertain to me. When I got to the chapters that did address issues that I face, I was extremely moved by the wisdom and comfort found in Nick’s words. Many of the issues are unique to Nick’s target population (youth and young adults) but most of us would readily admit that we’ve faced one, if not many, of these issues regardless of our age.

Nick didn’t disappoint. I am humbled by his sage advice…wisdom beyond his years. He is a shining example of Romans 8:28. All things do work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose. Once again, Nick Vujicic, a man with no arms or legs, has proven that there is no disability too great, no obstacle too insurmountable, no challenge too big, to stop the Lord from accomplishing His purposes in us if we submit to His will for our lives.

Life Without Limits: Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life

(Cover) Life Without Limits

Life Without Limits:  Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life by Nick Vujicic is a good read for anyone facing a life-challenge.  Born without arms or legs, Nick shares stories and inspiration from his life, illustrating how he has triumphed over his limitations again and again. If you struggle with depression, disabilities,  low self-esteem,  lack of motivation or  any of the difficulties life throws at humans, you can be motivated by reading this book.

Easy to read, enjoyable and encouraging, the book covers a wide swath of ground topic-wise.  Not all sections of the book will address your situation.  Regardless, there is a great message to be gleaned from Nick Vujicic’s book.  KEEP TRYING.  NEVER GIVE UP.  Coming from someone who has clearly had a vast array of challenges… physical, emotional, social and spiritual… Nick’s words ring true for any adversity we can encounter.

Pick up Life Without Limits: Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life, take the encouragement to heart and start tomorrow with an attitude of gratitude and a vision of victory!

**Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes.**
