Millions around the world recognize the smiling face and inspirational message of Nick Vujicic. Despite being born without arms or legs, Nicks challenges have not kept him from enjoying great adventures, a fulfilling and meaningful career, and loving relationships. Nick has overcome trials and hardships by focusing on the promises that he was created for a unique and specific purpose, that his life has value and is a gift to others, and that no matter the despair and hard times in life, God is always present. Nick credits his success in life to the power that is unleashed when faith takes action.
But how does that happen? In Unstoppable Nick addresses adversity and difficult circumstances that many people face today, including:
· Personal crises
· Relationship issues
· Career and job challenges
· Health and disability concerns
· Self-destructive thoughts, emotions, and addictions
· Bullying, persecution, cruelty, and intolerance
· Balance in body, mind, heart, and spirit
· Service to others
Through stories from his own life and the experiences of many others, Nick explains how anyone wanting a "ridiculously good life" can respond to these issues and more to become unstoppable. Whats standing in your way? Are you ready to become unstoppable?
Vanillin and InkLouisville, KYAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Where Faith Meets ActionMay 19, 2014Vanillin and InkLouisville, KYAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Nick Vujicic is a man of unique and unlikely circumstances, who is made rarer by his ability to touch so many different people so quickly and with such deep impact. His writing, while not ground-breaking, is honest and open and speaks loudly to people of many walks of life. It's hard to hear or read his story without being inspired. How many times have I said I "can't" do something while Nick is on a skateboard? It tends to put things in perspective of what we can all accomplish with a little faith and elbow grease.
The true message of it all is that, no matter what should happen, what your situation may be or what obstacles you may face, you have to believe in yourself and your own power to exact change in your life. Without that, you have nothing but hopes in a jar. In his book he says:
"Whether you are a Christian or not, you must never think that simply believing in something is enough. You can believe in your dreams, but you have to take action to make them happen. You can believe in your talents and have faith in your abilities, but if you don't develop them and put them to use, what good are they? You can believe that you are a good and caring person, but if you don't treat others with goodness and care, where is the proof?
You have a choice. You can believe or not believe. But if you believe - whatever you believe - you must act upon it."
So many times I think we get into a comfortable position of leaning heavily on our "strengths" without trying to grow as people. We should always be pushing and learning and grabbing for the next highest bar, and Nick practices exactly what he preaches.
Blogging for Books provided this book to me for free in exchange for an honest review.

rejoiceAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5InspiringMarch 22, 2014rejoiceAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Throughout the book, Nick, who was born without limbs, gives us this tremendous message. You must put your faith into action. Believe God and act upon it!
One of the key components to putting our faith into action is surrender to our all powerful God.
Nick's definition of surrender is intriguing. Surrender means letting go and believing in God's power to do what we cannot. In a play on word, he says, put the word GO in front of DISABLED and you have the phrase GOD IS ABLED.
Though we have limitations. God has none. Read this book and prepare to be inspired!
SquarelySarahAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5February 20, 2014SquarelySarahAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5There is just so much crammed into this small-ish paperback I could never completely cover it all so I'll just touch on a few things.
The term "faith in action" sums up the beautiful lesson in the first section of the book. It's a resounding theme to the end as well. "Why me?" Come on, you know you've said that before. I know I have! My disability isn't seen on the outside. You wouldn't know if I didn't tell you but it's crippled my life at times. Those are the times I have cried out to God, asking "why me?". Why NOT me? What good has it done for my life? How can I put that ability into it and use it, allow God to show me the purpose? Man, I'm just so excited about the new revelations that have come to me through obedience last Sunday and now, reading this book.
Debbie MWisconsinAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Another great book by NickFebruary 17, 2014Debbie MWisconsinAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is the second book by Nick Vujicic that I have read. I have really enjoyed both books. This book picks up where the last book left off, and deals with many hot topics for today, bullying, relationship issues, self-destructive thoughts and emotions, personal crises, career and job challenges, health and disability concerns, imbalances we may have in our bodies, etc., as well as feeling out of control.
He tells stories from both his own life, as well as stories from people that he has met. I loved hearing the story how he met his beautiful wife, and their love story, their ups and their downs in their relationship. In the center of the book are pictures of Nick and various places of ministry, people he has ministered to, as well as a wedding picture of Nick and Kanae.
He is very honest in his struggles, and his feelings, and it makes him more relatable. He also shares insights, and shows how to handle various problems that we may encounter.
I received this book for free from Blogging for Books for this review. The opinions are all my own. :)
