Nick Vujicic-Life Without Limbs
Transcript of Nick Vujicic-Life Without Limbs
Born with a Disability
Can you imagine getting through your busy day without your arms and legs? That's exactly what Nick Vujicic has been doing for his entire life! Nick was born without any limbs- well one if you include his "chicken drumstick", what he likes to call his foot with two toes!
As a Child
When he was younger, he was often made fun of by his peers. He wondered about the purpose of his life-or if there even was one. At one point, he even attempted to end his life. Today, he gives full credit to his success in life to God.
Inspiration to Others
Nick loves to speak publicly about his life and about God's plan for us. He says, "If God can use a man without arms or legs to be his hands and feet, he can certainly use any willing heart!"
For a long time, Nick doubted if he would ever be accepted or wanted by anyone. He saw other couples and decided that because he looked different, girls would overlook him for normality. But when Nick met Kanae Miyahara, he was convinced otherwise. They were married in 2012 and have a son named Kiyoshi James.
Even something as simple as eating or brushing your teeth is very difficult for Nick to do on his own, so he has constant care from his wife and others so he can live comfortably.

Despite overcoming obvious physical challenges, Nick also had to face mental and emotional setbacks. He had to be emotionally strong to realize that his life was important despite what his peers and the world were telling him. It also took a lot of mental strength and determination to keep trying and to never give up on his dreams.
