Unstoppable by Nick Vujicic

This week I had the privilege of reading and reviewing "Unstoppable" by Nick Vujicic. As you may have noticed, Nick was born without any arms or legs. He does have one tiny foot that allows him to write, type and do a few other things on his own, but for everything else he relies on his caregiver.

Nick is truly an inspiration to all despite the fact that he deals with an array of challenges on a day-to-day basis. He has dealt with self doubt, suicidal thoughts, being bullied, and went through periods of time where he wondered if God truly loved him. Through all the difficulties he has faced, Nick has come to realize that his disabilities are not his downfall. He now rejoices in the fact that he was born with disabilities because he realized that those disabilities are what made him the man God created him to be. He can reach hundreds of thousands of people for God just because of them. He trusts God with each day he has been blessed with. As Nick said in chapter 3, "Just having faith is not enough. You must live your faith by putting it into action each and every day." When we have a crisis, it is sometimes hard to recover from emotionally. But if you look at your hard times as an opportunity for learning and growth, you will likely bounce back sooner and stronger.

Nick has also been an inspiration to people with similar disabilities and other hardships because he doesn't let his lack of limbs keep him from doing anything he wants to do. He still surfs, skateboards and travels all around the world!

Nick also shares the story of how he met his beautiful wife and how God got them together. I also learned that Nick's wife recently had a baby boy and he was born with all of his limbs!

This book is an uplifting inspirational story to all! I give it 5 stars!

I received this book free from Multnomah Waterbrook Publishing to give my honest unbiased opinion.
