Nick's life oozes the hand of God. Clearly Nick's strength, courage and wisdom come from God. How can I complain? No reason for anyone not to be more passionate about their own place in God's story. Nick's triumph over his disability and his triumph over some of the same things that all of us face- is tremendously inspiring. This book will have you seeing the blessings in your own life with greater clarity and the obstacles will start looking smaller.
A inspiring autobiography and motivational tale, a tale that will bring you to tears and make you laugh, a full range of emotions in one amazing book.
What a book! I was sorta surprised about how this book was more than a autobiography, not that it was a bad thing, not at all :) I loved reading about the many things that happened in Nick's life that made him who he is today, and I was so happy to learn that he had gotten married earlier this year, because his book talked a little about how that was one of thie things he used to bescared he'd miss out on, but he didn't! I loved reading about how Nick has overcome so many things so that he can live his life not as an ordinary guy, but as an extrordinary one, and he gives all the credit to God!
I absolutely loved the hilarious stories Nick told of his childhood, and how he liked to play pranks on people! Nick's story is one of inspiration and encouragement, and it really helped me to remember to not really sweat the small stuff, and to give it all to God.
I kind of found myself skipping forward to the stories, which were my favorite parts of the book, and i kinda wanted it to be more of a autobiography, but I like how he diverted the attention from himself to God. All in all a great read.
I received this book from the publisher in return for an honest review. Thanks!
Nick Vujici's book is one of the most inspiring I have ever read, to date. His utter determination and strength to rise above the trials of life are living proof that God is alive and well and at work in the world today. His story is wonderfully told in "Life Without Limits", allowing us a glimpse into Nick's past and the challenges he and his family have faced, but also allowing us to observe the incredible impact he has had on people around the world....and the fun he has had while doing it! Many times, I found myself laughing out loud, such as when he shares the story about convincing his caregiver to hide him in the overhead luggage department of an airplane - and then popping out to surprise one of the passengers!
Where most of us would have given up on living a "normal" life had we been born without arms and legs, Nick redefines normal, and in the process gives all glory to God. Yet I also appreciate that he doesn't gloss over the pain and darkness he's experienced, but is honest and open even about a period in his life when he wanted to give in to thoughts of suicide. I am sure that countless people struggling with similar thoughts, for whatever reason, would be greatly encouraged by Nick's honesty about his own struggles, and also about how he chose a different path and discovered that God had great plans in store for him. What a great reminder to us that, even when we are down in the valley of pain, God is still in control and is able to do more than we can even dream of.
"Life Without Limits" is a well-crafted, inspirational read, and I highly encourage readers to pick up a copy for themselves. You will not only be emotionally impacted by what you read, but will be moved to live a life of faith and adventure as well. The book even contains a personal action plan section that will help you make positive changes in practical, action-orientated steps.
I highly recommend this book and award it 5 out of 5 stars.
