Life without Limits {book review}?

How often have you heard the term, "outward appearance doesn't define you?" It sounds all well and good--but what if your life actually revolved around that statement? What if your "outward appearance" was so drastically different from everyone you knew, that you couldn't help but be effected?

Welcome to the world of Nick Vujicic: Australian-born thirty-something-year-old, swimmer, surfer, world-renowned speaker...and posesser of neither arms or legs. In his heartfelt and touching book, "Life without Limits," he discusses his hard and unusual childhood--his struggles, his victories, his supportive and strong Chrisitan family, and most of all, his limb-less, yet limitless life.

Nick writes with humor, joking about his condition as much as he covers the more serious aspects of his life. He describes how he gets a drink of water and flushes the toilet, and he covers his near suicidal attempt as a child. He encourages readers to look beyond "road blocks," and live life to the fullest--with God as Guide. I enjoyed reading this book immensly, and would recommend it to anyone seeking encouragement or simply a good, uplifting, God-honoring read..and with Nick's story in mind, all of the petty trials of life will seem like nothing.

*DISCLAIMER* I recieved this book for free to review from Waterbrook Multnolmah Books. All opinions are my own. 


  1. wow, i'd heard of that book, but now you've made me want to read it!! :D

  2. Good review, Lucia! I had the privilege to see Nick in person a few years ago, and he is just as inspirational as I imagine his book to be. After he spoke, he sat on a table and "hugged" anyone who wanted to - it was so neat! :)

  3. I've never actually read that book, but I did get to hear Nick Vujicic talk once. It was extremely interesting!

    Very good review!

  4. Wow, it sounds like Nick has a powerful testimony. :)

    Beautiful review, Lucia!

    <3 in Christ,

  5. Oh wow, I've seen him on youtube!
    Such an amazing person! God has awesome plans!
    I will definitely buy the book. Thanks for the review!

    And he can surf! Surfing is hard for me, and I have all my limbs! So cool!

    You have a lovely blog!

  6. Great review! I'd love to read that book. I've heard about Nick. He has such a powerful testimony.

  7. I saw a short-film with him in it (I can't remember the title, but it was something about a butterfly circus), and I really liked his role in the film. He's an awesome guy.


Aw! Thanks so much for leaving a comment! They make me smile. :)
