Life Without Limits

If anyone had an excuse to complain or just sit around and do nothing, it would be Nick Vujicic. He, however, has packed more into his life in a year than most people do in a lifetime! This internationally known motivational speaker is honest about the physical and emotional hardships, even thoughts of suicide, but this candid look at his life is filled with hope. His faith in God, sense of humor, determination, thrill-seeking tendencies, and longing to inspire others, combined with a family who loves him unconditionally have led him to "a ridiculously good life".

I had originally planned on making note of a few things he had to say and posting them as part of this review. The problem with that idea was that I could not narrow is down to just a couple. His thoughts on overcoming difficulties, fear of failure, faith in God, and compassion were were simple, yet profound. His struggle to rise above his situation has given him a wisdom beyond his years, and I truly admire his forthright way of sharing the lessons he has learned.

I was very touched with his interpretation of being the hands & feet of Christ in the face of his obvious lack: "I take it spiritually. I serve Him by touching as many lives as I can through my testimony and my example." There is no doubt that Nick Vujicic has gone over and beyond the limits to most of us restrict ourselves to and sees no boundaries to what he can accomplish through Christ. I highly recommend this book to everyone!!

This sounds like a marvelous book. We sometimes forget how much we have to be thankful for and take for granted.
