Book Review: Life Without Limits by Nick Vujicic

Life Without Limits is filled with an abundance of inspiration to help motivate people to use the purposes God has planted inside of themselves to reach out to other people and make their lives a little or a lot easier.  Nick Vujicic, a man who was born without arms and legs, describes what life was like for him and his family when he was a child, when he became older, when he wanted to give up on life before God’s purposes for his life were revealed, some of his evangelism efforts which have touched many people throughout the world, and also some of his experiences with acting in a film. Nick explains how God has used him even though he has physical limitations and encourages readers to not let their limitations put a block on allowing God to unleash his purposes in their lives, far beyond what they can comprehend or dream on their own.

What was very motivating for me in this book was to read that when we are hurting it is helpful to find people who are also hurting and take action with finding something to do to help them. Small acts of kindness are very meaningful to a lot of people, and kindness is contagious and in some cases it will have a ripple effect. Nick showed me, through both serious and humorous tones, that disabilities do not put limits on the purposes that God intends for people with disabilities. I also think I might have felt a gentle push while reading this book, towards people without any known disabilities or invisible disabilities who are not already putting God’s purposes for their lives into action, to use what God has gifted them with to bless others.

***The book I reviewed didn't have the personal action plan that the book cover from the photo I attached states. My copy did have a great resource list at the end though, to help find people in need.

I received “Life Without Limits” free from Waterbrook  Multnomah for this review. I was not required to write a review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
