About the book

Strength in Belief

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 from before day one. Let Jen show you what you can accomplish when you remove the words coincidence and can't from your 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.

My Thoughts

It is always nice to read an uplifting book every once in a while.  The story of Jen Bricker is not exception.  It makes you realize that there is no point whatsoever in always thinking negatively while living your life.  When you see a person like Jen and think that she might not have any hope in her future, always remember that God can use that person in ways you cannot imagine yourself.  

Jen was born without legs but this did not stop her in have big aspirations and wanting to try anything.  Early on she was a very determine little girl who only desired to try out everything she found fascinating – even gymnastic.  She did not stop there and she continue to dream big and follow whatever opened up to her.    She has been blessed beyond measure with the family who adopted her despite the fact that she did not had legs.  She was covered with love not only by her immediate family but by many people who came in contact with her as she grew to become the young woman she is today.   As you read through the book and learn more about her journey you can sense that she feels sorry for the people who judge her or compare their own kids to herself.

I suspect not everyone would have been able to become successful in life like she did despite the challenges.   It takes a lot of strong will and dedication for someone with a disability to rise above their peers.   But dedication and enthusiasm are definitely two things that Jen had in her heart and bad comments did not slowed her down a minute.

The book also contains numerous photos of her growing up and how she uses her skills in life.   It is breathtaking to see her doing her signature pose in various places around the world or see how she never hesitate to expand her experiences in life.   

This book is a great autobiography to read if you are interested in knowing how someone born with no legs can become an amazing aerialist and motivational speaker.   It is her true story that is worth discovering because it is packed with great wisdom, honesty and joy.
