Book Review: Life Without Limits, by Nick Vujicic


This is an incredible book about the triumphs and trials in the life of Nick Vujicic.  Nick was born with no arms and no legs which then created an interesting journey not only for him but also for his family.  From the beginning of the book till the end, you will read the most encouraging stories, meet an incredible array of encouraging people and realize the potential you may not even know you have!
If I needed to rate this book I would give it five brilliantly glowing stars!  Our family fell in love with Nick immediately!  He has a warm, funny and very caring way of communicating.  It is easy to feel the compassion that he has for people and the situations they are in, the passion that he has for life and the love he has for Almighty God!
We read this book out loud as a family.  I felt that this was a story that my children needed to hear…especially before the teen years hit.  Every person struggles in one way or another with acceptance and “fitting in,” some people just hide it better than others.  I wanted my boys to see what a real struggle with fitting in looks like.  By reading this book out loud to them, I wanted them to understand that no matter how bleak a situation can look…someone else may have a situation much bleaker than we do.
A great lesson learned from this book is to look beyond yourself.  When you stop trying to fulfill your own desires and try instead to meet the needs of others, not only can you change a life, but you will change yours in the process.  I recommend this book to everyone…literally.  For anyone with teens or pre-teens, please get this book and read it to your children, it could be one of the most powerful moments you could have as a family by reading this book together.

Hey,
Thanks for the info about Sam becoming Samantha. That's really funny. I agree with you about animals being cute when they poke out of anything. Cheers.
