[Book Review & Giveaway] Believe, Belong, Become

I was recently given a few books written by the life warrior without arms and legs, Mr Nick Vujicic. He's an inspiration! In spite of his physical limitations, he's lived a life demonstrating what our limitless heavenly Father can do through him.

Today, I will share my thoughts about his new book that's targeted at children, "Believe, Belong, Become". In this latest edition of the "Give Me a Hug" series involves 8 lessons where Nick engages his reader in a spiritual conversation; he describes how he went from feeling weak as a young child to starting to gain strength through God at the age of fifteen.
As I turned the pages of this book (even though it was meant for children), I wished I had read this book when I was still a student. I could certainly use his encouragement to live a life with purpose and the will power to pursue my dreams. I could identify with Nick in his story during his growing up years, the experience of labeled as different, not able to blend in, being teased and bullied.
In this book, Believe, Belong, Become, Nick Vujicic, offered practical advice for realizing a life of happiness and sense of purpose by waiting upon the Lord as he persist and trust God for the journey. He encouraged the reader by showing how he learned to accept what he could not control and focus instead on what he could. All these could only be done because of his faith in God who's been his central source of strength.
It was great that I could sit with my children to do read this book aloud with them. The opportunity to share and discuss with them the life lessons Nick has gone through was immeasurable. They have learned with perseverance and faith, they will be able to pursue and fulfil their dreams. Growing up can be a scary process especially when one don't feel the acceptance and sense of belonging, I am thankful for the sharing by Nick through this book which I could use to guide my children as they face similar challenges in school or even life in general for the examples illustrated in the book was rather easy for the kids to identify with.
"You must learn to wait. In the process, you will encounter difficulties, restlessness, doubts, fear, etc. People who are determined can feel the strength from God and move forward bravely like eagles flying against the wind. Those who lack confidence blame and complain; their weakness is the cause of their failure to spread their wings. Please don't rush, remember while you wait, do your best and God will do the rest. God will surely reward those who are willing to wait for Him with strength, peace, happiness, and the salvation of eternal life." ~ Nick Vujicic, Believe, Belong, Become
