A Powerful Book of Hope and Faith!

!           "Everything is Possible" 
         By Jan Bricker with Sheryl Berk


Born without Legs, She Inspires Others to Overcome
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 beforeday 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.

My Thoughts: 

Whenever I feel like I just don't have the energy to do my daily activities, I will definitely think of Jen Bricker!! The words "I can't" are just not part of her vocabulary. Imagine yourself not having legs! Would it be easy getting around to do your everyday activities??? Definitely not!!  Yet, this woman lives her life to the fullest!! Does she find excuses ?? NO WAY!!  This book definitely teaches me to be thankful for what I have and can do, as well as making  me rethink what life is all about. If this individual can do the "impossible", what makes the rest of us think that we can make excuses??? Jen's determination and faith exemplifies her deep faith in God. He has made us in His image. Then, why do we think we can say, oh we are too tired, we ache today, can't possibly go out and work??!!  Jen is an inspiration and positive influence to every individual she meets!

Her story is truly motivational ! If she can do it, so can the rest of us!!! What a wonderful testimony Jen's life is! She claims God is her strength and then proves it. She has dealt with her adoption and her physical limitations in such a positive uplifting way. The use of her disability to gain believers is a great example to all of us!

 What a fantastic book!!!
