This book was not what I thought it was going to be. Well part of it was in that...it is written by a man with disabilities who shares his testimonies...that part I was right on about. The rest? Oh my goodness! There is FAR MORE in this book then what I hoped and dreamed.
You see I started to read this book and was into the 3rd chapter when I KNEW I had to go back and start doing some underlining and highlighting so as not to lose the tidbits of wisdom which are literally EVERYWHERE on the pages of this book.
I can tell you that the author, Nick Vujicic, was anointed to write this book and I believe many more to come. It was as if it was written just for me!
I am not sure how the author does it, but he makes it seem as if he knows you, knows your struggles and challenges and then he hands out this seasoned advice. Yet, he's not that old! I kept asking myself, “How can this be? How can he know this much already?”
Because the Lord has given it to him is why!
There are pictures in the middle of the book of Nick when he was younger. These are quite endearing to me being a mother and grandmother myself.
I feel I need to address the author:
Nick, I feel as though I know you. You have helped me with all you shared. You can't possibly know what I am facing with my calling in the Lord Jesus Christ...but yet you have given me such sound and seasoned advice that I KNOW comes from the Lord. I feel as though I've had time with you. Reading what you have written has helped me to see that I must not be sitting around “waiting” for what I know I am called to do to just appear but that I must take some steps towards it. That I must not waste my time with frivolous things but only do what is in alignment with where I am going. You write in such a way that it is easy to digest. Not all that intellectual mumbo jumbo that some are in the habit of doing but yet it is evident that you are quite intelligent and knowledgable. Thank you so much! Here's a hug for you...(((((((NICK))))))) God bless you and keep it up!!!! I know there are challenges yet that lie ahead for you but you can rise to those challenges in Christ Jesus! I am glad I read your book and will suggest it to others as well. In the love of Christ!!!! Jean
Do I need to say that I wholly recommend this book? IF so....I RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!
