cmwinnerHalifax, Nova Scotia, CanadaAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5InspiringOctober 30, 2016cmwinnerHalifax, Nova Scotia, CanadaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Jen Bricker was born without legs and given up for adoption. Her adoptive parents raised her to never say that she couldn't do something. They taught her that anything was possible and Jen believed them. She played baseball, roller skated, power tumbling and spinning from silk fabric high up in the hair. Whatever she set her mind to do she did it.
In this book Jen tells her story of how she didn't let obstacles stand in her way. If she wanted to do something she did it. She does not consider her self to be handicapped in any sort of way. She talks about what she has learned in her life and how we can believe in the same things. She starts each chapter off with a scripture verse and ends it with a section entitled "Believe It!"
This book was very inspiring. Jen Bricker goes to prove that you can do anything you set your mind to. The lessons that she has learned throughout her life can so easily be applied to anyone's life.

Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Inspirational and ChallengingOctober 12, 2016Seasons of GraceAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As I read this book, I was truly inspired that in a society of people using all types of excuses not to be able to do things, Jen never says she can't. As a matter of fact, she is an over achiever.
Jen begins her book by sharing about her abandonment at birth and the blessing of being adopted into a Christian family. She shares how God's hand was in it all, placing her in the exact place she needed to be, with a family that was loving, supportive and encouraging in-spite of her handicaps. They never allowed that to become her "crutch". They taught her to become an independent, self-sufficient young lady and not to let what other people said about her bother her. Instead to be all she could be for the glory of God. She learned to be creative, use her talents, and discover her special gifts.
Her story is truly motivational and inspirational. If she can do it, so can I, is the feeling you get when you read this book! Although, there were times Jen got discouraged, she never let it keep her down. In some ways, Jen can seem bigger than life, but she is first to admit that she is human, has faults and problems too. She has a beautiful testimony and claims God as her strength in weakness. She is thankful for her disabilities because they have given her a greater opportunity to serve Him and be an encouragement to others. Through them, she has gained a platform for reaching people.
I was blessed with this book by the publisher and iconmedia bloggers group. A positive review was not required.

Written as a memoir, read like a journal, Everything Is Possible is Jen Brickers story of encouragement, strength, faith and life. Born without legs yet not letting that define her, Jen lives life to the fullest. Explaining that she is like a Polaroid picture that didnt fully develop, Jen lets nothing defeat her because she always tries. With encouragement from her parents and a strong faith in God, she believes everything happens for a purpose and as a result, everything is possible. Full of personal triumphs, humor, compassion and energy, Everything Is Possible shares more than just a story
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Not only well written but so full of vitality, I enjoyed meeting Jen Bricker within the pages of this book. Though her story could have turned out so differently, her outlook, fortitude, faith and perseverance in life make everything possible despite her disability. As an inspiration to so many others, I am glad her story has been shared; I believe God has big plans for her.
