Host:Dr. James Dobson
Have you ever felt as though your prayers were bouncing off the ceiling? On today’s edition of Family Talk, Nick Vujicic (VOO-yi-chich), author of Life Without Limits, can totally relate! After he was born without arms or legs, he begged God for a miracle so he could look like every other boy. His depression led to a suicide attempt at age 10. But, as a teen, the Lord revealed to Nick through John 9:3, that he was born this way, "so that the works of God might be displayed in him." Indeed, the 38-year-old evangelist has led one million people to Christ since 2005!
Nick Vujicic is a Christian speaker, New York Times best-selling author, and founder of the non-profit ministry, Life without Limbs. He’s faced tremendous obstacles in life from living without limbs, to being bullied at school and fearful for his future with no purpose in sight. Without hope, his feelings of helplessness and isolation led him to attempt suicide. Nick persevered through his challenges and discovered key principles which enabled him to find his purpose and turn obstacles into opportunities. He has since been featured on several news programs and publications including BBC, 60 Minutes Australia, CBS Sunday Morning, USA Today, ABC News and The Glenn Beck Program. Nick and his wife, Kanae, have four children and reside in Southern California.
