Nick Vujicic is a remarkable man. I was drawn to him at first because of his physical disability; he was born with no arms and no legs. But, what makes Nick even more remarkable is his wonderful outlook on life and his powerful message of faith in God. In his latest quick-read booklet, The Power of Unstoppable Faith: Your Keys to a Fulfilled Life, Nick tells his story of wanting to give up because he felt his life had no purpose, but with the Lord’s help, he found it.
He puts forth a challenge to the reader by saying. “You and I were put on this earth to serve something greater than our narrow interests. When our focus becomes self-centered, we lose our greatest source of power. Our God-given talents are meant to benefit others. When we use them for that greater purpose, we put faith into action to fulfill His plans for us. We make a difference in this word that helps prepare us for the next.” Nick’s encouragement is needed today in an age where the need is great and we can help bring hope by serving others, thus finding fulfillment.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review and wasn’t required to give a positive review, but I loved Nick’s encouraging words and highly recommend it. 🙂
If you have never heard of Nick or seen his videos, I’d recommend you watch them [videos] on you tube. I show one of his videos to my junior high class because his words of loving yourself and others is life-giving and powerful. I have included the video link below in my comments box.
Lisa, which video do you show your students?

Nick is my hero! 🙂
