Wow! is the first word that comes to my mind about this book. I was full of inspiration from the first page. I continued to be inspired throughout the entire book.
Nick Vujicic, born without arms or legs, tells the story of his life. Raised in a Christian home, he had a lot of doubts in God throughout his childhood, but he never gave up. Today, as a devout Christian, he spends his life traveling the world giving motivational speeches.
His goal in writing this book is to encourage everyone to live their life to the fullest, and to find their purpose in life. He is living proof that no matter what your circumstances or physical ailments, you do have a purpose!
I found myself to be very encouraged in reading through this book. I've felt in the past that the little things that I do for others don't mean much....Nick tells us differently. Once I thought about it, I know he is right. The little things do add up. And, if we all do little things to help others, that makes for HUGE things.
The middle of the book is 8 pages of photos. They span his life from 6 months old on up. One photo shares Bethany Hamilton teaching him how to surf. I thought it was really cool that just after reading that section of the book and seeing the photo, I started seeing the previews for the movie Soul Surfer. Soul Surfer is the life story of Bethany Hamilton, continuing on, and even surfing, after a shark ate her arm off. Nick raves on what a great inspiration she is as well.
In fact, Nick shares a lot of stories of others who have turned bad situations into good for themselves and those around them.
The back of the book has a resources section. This is a listing of different websites you can go to to donate, volunteer, etc to help others. The information is there if you would so choose to help out that way.
I highly recommend this book to everyone! It sure gets 5 stars in my book. I feel blessed that I had the opportunity to read it.
