Why I read this book:
I chose to read this book because I absolutely love inspirational stories and people. While this is the first book I’ve read by Vujicic, I was familiar with his story already. (My father-in-law shared it with us.) After finishing this book, Nick Vujicic could quite possibly be at the top of my list of people who inspire me.
About the Book/My Thoughts:
This book was such a treasure to read! It is comprised of 50 short devotions (about 3-4 pages each) which include scriptures, stories, advice, and comments that teach us how to live a better life by applying God’s word into our daily lives. Although there are many books on this subject, this book just stands apart from all the rest. Vujicic has carefully woven together the formula for living an amazing life in such a way that you can’t help but be captivated by the possibilities that God has for your life. Throughout this book, Vujicic shares his personal struggles and experiences to illustrate how the meaning of life goes well beyond circumstances and obstacles. People are destined for so much more in life. This book explains how we can achieve that level of living.
Many people have far more physical advantages than Vujicic, yet his outlook and attitude toward life is especially compelling. While he has faced struggles learning how to live life without arms or legs, he has also faced the same struggles that plague many of us in our daily lives. Although he’s different on the outside, he’s exactly the same on the inside….only better. Vujicic’s life is filled with remarkable purpose. He has dedicated his life to share the love of God with people from all over the world in ways that only he could. The amount of hope and love that has been shared by this single individual has changed the world for many, many people.
While this book is a quick and easy read, the amount of useful insight in this book is truly life-changing. After reading this book, I plan to try my best to follow all of his advice and aspire to live a ridiculously good life. And I really believe that if I am able to follow his advice, the wisdom and insight in this book is more than enough to make that happen.
5 bright shiny stars.
I recommend this book to everyone. Literally every adult out there should read this book. It is so easy to complain about the smallest inconveniences. I think most of us could use an attitude adjustment when it comes to appreciation for life and the opportunities that God has for us.
