Limitless (Devotions for a Ridiculously Good Life) by Nick Vujicic

Have you ever heard of Nick Vujicic? You know the question, "If you could invite five people to dinner who would it be"? Well, Nick would be one of my picks. This is a young man we can all learn a great deal from. He can totally teach us how to live! I loved this devotional! It was so refreshing to read his story. He is an inspiration and a great encouragement to all. Nick was born without legs and arms. Can you imagine? I cannot even grasp this, but Nick not only was born this way, he grasped a hold of the Lord and is living his life for Jesus! Amen! That is something to shout about.

Nick could live an angry and bitter life, but he chooses to live in the moment. Once you read his story you understand that he isn't disabled at all. In fact, he is probably more able than most. He has shared his story in, "Life Without Limits", and Unstoppable". It was a blessing to be privileged to review his third book, "Limitless", which is a devotional. This small treasure contains fifty devotional type stories. They are short but powerful. Nick shares a scripture verse, a devotion that is brought out by his life lived limitless. Each devotion closes with, "Limitless Life", just a short quote of encouragement to live by.

A few of the devotions are titled, "Hope for the Impossible", "Triumph Over Tragedy", "Never Be Without Hope", "Full Surrender", "Don't Go It Alone", "A Passionate Pursuit", and many more.

Here are just a few of Nick's Limitless Life quotes:

"Even if you haven't always appreciated the ways you are different, thank God for His divine creation of you. Ask Him to show you how your uniqueness can be used to help others or to glorify Him."

"Your comeback, like mine, may come in small steps, day by day, over a period of weeks or months. I hope yours comes quickly, but there are benefits to a gradual revival. As the fog of despair lifts, be grateful for every ray of light that comes through."

"The next time something unforeseen happens to your plans, try not to view it as a disruption. Instead, look for the hidden gift-the opportunity that blesses you or someone around you. Be available to be used by God when He needs you."

This book is perfectly placed together with scripture, devotion and inspirational quotes by Nick. It is clear to see that Nick is being used of God for great missions. Nick is an example of a humble man, living out life with purpose and passion, giving glory to the God who created him just as he is. Beautiful beyond description.

This is one of those books that will bring life into perspective. We forget what is truly important and focus on things that really don't matter at all. Nick truly shows us how to live the limitless life that God created for us!

This book was a gift from WaterBrook Press for my review.

The One True Love of Alice-Ann by Eva Marie Everson

Oh, just where do I begin? This is the stuff in which great novels are made. I made my way through this richly beautiful novel turning page after page with such deep emotion and thought. I couldn't turn the pages quick enough, but I didn't want it to end to soon. It's one of those novels you could continue reading as long as there were pages. No page just made of fluff, words with no meaning on the page. Every single line in this novel created a story that will last in my heart forever. 
Ms. Everson, I am so happy stories of the war were shared with you. Oh, to have your Sunday school teacher share with you, "You can't choose who you fall in love with, but you can choose who you marry", is a blessing that has now enchanted your readers. What a story you have weaved together. History penned with such depth, detail, and a story that captures the heart. 
This lovely story begins in 1941. The war has started. Picture a family gathered around the Zenith to hear t…

The Illusionist's Apprentice by Kristy Cambron

I want to begin this review sharing two reviews I was blessed to do. The Butterfly and The Violinand A Sparrow in Terezin. For me these two novels were masterpieces. Works of such exquisite beauty. They showed that Kristy Cambron is gifted with the pen, a master storyteller. They remain two of my all-time top favorites. 
It was for this reason I was thrilled to be receiving a copy of The Illusionist's Apprentice. Once again Cambron shows us a masterpiece of bringing a story to readers that speaks of faith and our Lord. Although throughout the novel these aspects are not boldly proclaimed, but are masterfully weaved throughout the story. 
Magic and illusion are not the same. I love how she brings this truth. Love that the main character was an apprentice to the master of illusion. She takes the use of being an apprentice and walks that road with integrity and hope. When we choose to walk with Christ we are His apprentices. We are to walk as the main character, Wren Lockhart walked…

The" I Am" Makes Us Think About What "i am"

In Genesis 1:26-27 it shares something valuable to each of us about who we are in God. We are created in His image. What I love about this verse below is that is says, "make man in OUR image". What's OUR? The trinity, God, the Holy Spirit, and Christ Jesus. Ponder that. I mean really go deep. We are make in THEIR image. 
"Then God said, "Let US make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them."
We are His workmanship. He knew us before we were ever born. He weaved us together within the womb, but even before then He planned our life perfectly for us. That's so much to ponder isn't it? 
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared…

The Glassblower by Petra Durst-Benning

I came across this selection on Amazon. I had seen so many reviews that it intrigued me. I had never read anything from this German author. The cover caught my attention as did the description of this novel. 
It's a part of a trilogy. I am getting ready to open up book 2, The American Lady. I cannot wait to begin. I tell you this book marveled me. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. What a journey into another time and place. 
We travel to Germany where this novel is set. The year is 1890 and we find ourselves in Lauscha, Germany. The author did a fantastic job at the perfect description of not only the area, but circumstance, and heart of the characters. Her writing style flows so easily that the pages almost turn themselves. 
The characters are easy to love. Three sisters who are now wondering, after their father had passed from this earth,  how they will now provide for themselves. It isn't going to be easy, but these sisters show us how to prevail over challenges that…

Unexpected Blessings

The last words my dad spoke to me from his hospital bed were, "Rob, take care of your mom." Those are words I have never forgotten. I have not only honored them for my dad, but for my mom. I too am commanded by my Father to honor my mother and father.
"Honor your father and mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the Lord your God is giving you." Exodus 20:12
My mom gave her life in caring for me. On my first birthday, my very first Christmas, was spent in the ICU as I was very sick with pneumonia. A little later I would burn myself with spilled coffee. A few years later I would tumble down many stairs and once again spent time in the hospital. 
I remember all the times I was sick and could feel my mom's hand brush against my forehead as she checked for fever. All the times she must have stayed up all night as I was sick. 
When I was little she would pour me a bowl of Raisin Bran. I loved it. Only I didn't like the raisins. She would take t…
