Title: Everything is Possible
Author: Jen Bricker with Sheryl Berk and forward by Nick Vujicic
Jen Bricker was born without legs. Shocked and uncertain they could care for her, her biological parents gave her up for adoption. In her loving adoptive home, there was just one simple rule: “Never say ‘can’t.'” And pretty soon, there was nothing this small but mighty powerhouse set her sights on that she couldn’t conquer: roller-skating, volleyball, power tumbling, and spinning from silk ribbons thirty feet in the air.
Everything Is Possible is her incredible story–a story of God working out his plan for her life from before day one. Readers follow Jen from the challenges of growing up different to holding captive audiences numbering in the tens of thousands. Everything Is Possible shows readers what they can accomplish when they remove the words coincidence and limitation from their vocabulary. Filled with heart and spirit, as well as Jen’s wit, wisdom, and no-holds-barred honesty, this inspiring true story points the way to purpose and joy. Foreword by Nick Vujicic.
This is an inspiring and very interesting book. I learned a lot of things about people who are “different” though the words of Jen Bricker. I learned about what it really would be like to walk on your hands or deal with people who don’t understand and really have no desire to try to understand you. I loved her positivity and how she was completely honest about the times when she was far from positive. I loved reading about all the different experiences she has had and all the wonderful people who have helped shaper her into who she is today. Her faith in God is so strong and is so refreshing to read.
The one thing I really didn’t like about this book is that it didn’t seem to be laid out real well. We would jump around in the different times of her life with each chapter. I understand that each chapter focused on a different aspect of that time but it got confusing. She would talk about her childhood and then moving to Orlando and LA but then in subsequent chapters we might start out at any of these times and you had to try to remember what years she moved to each place so that you could figure out if this was a new move or if we just went back to before she moved.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an inspiring read.
