Book review: Unstoppable: The Incredible Power of Faith in Action by Nick Vujicic

Unstoppable: the incredible power of faith in action  by Nick Vujicic.
It's incredible to read Nick Vujicic's story. Every person, especially those inclined to  complain about their life or the body God has given them needs to read about Nick, or watch his videos.
Having heard his story, I now feel utterly ashamed of any complaints I have expressed about my body! It sounds so futile when confessed in words that I have actually felt discontented about how God has created me. Yet I know many of us do- If it's not our bodies, than it's our circumstances or future or job or anything!
I blush when I recall all the complaints I've voiced or thought, as a self-conscious woman, concerning my legs. And there are people who have no legs!

Nick's faith is immense. He surprises people by announcing that he doesn't need arms or legs. Then he adds that all he needs is Jesus Christ. 

''I have come to realize that this 'disability' would actually heighten my ability to serve this purpose as a speaker and evangelist...God has used my lack of limbs to draw people to me, especially others with disabilities; so I can inspire and encourage them with my message of faith, hope, and love.''

Nick tells his own story, using it as he goes to encourage others.

I wasn't a fan of the portions on suicidal feelings, bullying...but it was thoughtful of Nick to include these helpful chapters.They just weren't relevant in my life right now. The chapters about abused women in India and like countries really touched my heart though.
