Each month, WaterBrook Multnomah gives readers a sneak peek into an upcoming title. See below for our most recent peek.
Kanae Vujicic on the First Time She Saw Nick and Feeling “The Spark.”
“There was definitely a spark and a strong attraction from the first moments I locked eyes with Nick… Nick tells everyone that when he was speaking that day back in 2010, he looked out into the crowd, locked eyes with me, and had to force himself to look away.”
Kanae had experienced relationships based on superficial attraction, but she longed to find a mate with strong character and faith—a man who would be a godly husband and father. When Nick and Kanae met in the most amazing way, they realized that God—the ultimate Matchmaker– had used even their discouraging and painful experiences to prepare them for each other…for the love of their life.
Nick Vujicic shares about dating Kanae and how they each felt from his book Love Without Limits.
“Despite my optimism about other parts of life, I decided that love in this world had limits after all. I’d become convinced that no woman would want to marry such an obviously imperfect man as me….”
Later, when Nick realized that God had a purpose for him, his life took on new meaning. But after a long-term relationship ended in heartache, would he ever find someone to marry? In this excerpt from their new book, Love Without Limits, Nick shares how insecurities can make or break a relationship.
In This House We Will Giggle author Courtney DeFeo discusses practical tips to helping your children from being focused on selfies…to becoming unselfish…on ”Good Day Orlando.”
As wife and mother of two, DeFeo was inspired to write an idea-packed book for parents filled with motivating reflections, real-life stories and creative ways to help parents turn their kids’ hearts toward God.

It Doesn’t Take a Perfect Person to Find a Perfect Love
Even though he was born without arms or legs, Nick Vujicic created a “ridiculously good life.” But after dating disappointments and a failed relationship, he reached his mid-twenties worried that he would never find a woman to love him and share his life.
Then Nick met Kanae and everything changed. But even with undeniable chemistry, they would have to navigate twists and turns worthy of a romantic comedy before becoming “one” in marriage.
In Love Without Limits Nick and Kanae tell how they improbably found each other, fell in love, and then fought to overcome skepticism from others about their relationship. Filled with practical insights that will benefit any couple, this inspiring book describes a godly courtship and the early years of the Vujicics’ marriage and parenting journey.

Shaunti Feldhahn, author of The Surprising Secrets of Highly Happy Marriages and The Good News About Marriage , was featured in a Focus on the Family broadcast titled ‘Uncovering the Secrets to A Happy Marriage I-II‘. The two-part broadcast, airing on June 23rd and 24th, covers the tips and tricks in Feldhahn’s book The Surprising Secrets of Highly Happy Marriages: The Little Things That Make a Big Difference.
In the interview, Feldhahn explains, “It’s so easy for us to say, well, our goal shouldn’t be to be happy, it should be to be holy… The problem with that is we get to the idea that they’re mutually exclusive.” One of the main things couples can do to be happy, according to Feldhahn’s findings, is to “believe the best of your spouse’s intentions when you’re hurt.” Happy couples, she claims, have learned how to talk themselves out of being upset and mad, instead choosing a more positive perspective.
“It’s so easy to focus on our problems to try and fix them…but that means you’re only focusing on the problems,” Feldhahn explains. “Let’s look at what the happy marriages have to teach us and celebrate that and say it’s possible.”
