Will change you: My review of "Everything is Possible" by Jen Bricker
about the book....
When Jen Bricker was born without legs, her shocked biological parents were uncertain they could care for her and 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, including roller-skating, volleyball, power tumbling, and spinning from silk fabric thirty feet in the air.
Everything Is Possible is her incredible story--a story of God working out his plan for her life frombefore day one. Let Jenshow you what youcan accomplish when you remove the wordscoincidence and can't from your vocabulary.
For those of us who have lost sight of our dreams and feel like it's easier to not even try anymore, Jen Bricker's life story shows that dreams are always worth dreaming, no matter what circumstance you may find yourself in! In a world that seems saturated by negativity, her book serves as a breath of fresh air, offering a dose of courage and purpose to us all. I was truly captivated by this book, finding it to be well-written and engaging in every way, as we readers are allowed into the world that is Jen Bricker, someone who has not let her lack of legs lessen her life purpose in any way. And I think what I especially like about this book is, that as heroic and courageous as Jen is, she doesn't pretend to be perfect. As such, anyone reading this book will be able to relate to her, and realise that they can pursue the kind of life that she leads. Her story is written with humility and grace, and her humour shines through the stories that are so wonderfully shared with us. Every single page seems to point to the goodness of God, and Jen's beautiful faith shines through each chapter, faith that God can do even more than we can ask or imagine, that he can bring good from the most difficult moments.
If there is one book you read this year, let it be this one. You will walk away challenged in your beliefs, and striving to embrace the high calling God has on your life. Both adults and youth will love this book! I award this book a rating of 5 out of 5 stars.
