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.
One of the most perplexing theological questions—Is it possible to reconcile God’s sovereignty with human choice?—is also one of the most personal. Bestselling author and theologian Randy Alcorn brings life-changing insight to the great debate between God’s power versus human choice in his new book, hand in Hand.

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.

Best-selling author Shaunti Feldhahn’s newest book, The Good News About Marriage: Debunking Discouraging Myths about Marriage and Divorce, was featured on CBN.com in an article entitled “Divorce Shocker: Most Marriages Do Make It.”
Writes reporter Paul Strand, “This Atlanta-based couple often quoted in their writings and at conferences what they thought was accurate research: that most marriages are unhappy and 50 percent of them end in divorce, even in the Church. ‘I didn’t know,’ Feldhahn told CBN News. ‘I’ve stood up on stage and said every one of these wrong statistics.’”
“‘First-time marriages: probably 20 to 25 percent have ended in divorce on average,’ Feldhahn revealed. ‘Now, okay, that’s still too high, but it’s a whole lot better than what people think it is.’ Shaunti and Jeff point out the 50 percent figure came from projections of what researchers thought the divorce rate would become as they watched the divorce numbers rising in the 1970s and early 1980s when states around the nation were passing no-fault divorce laws. ‘But the divorce rate has been dropping,’ Feldhahn said. ‘We’ve never hit those numbers. We’ve never gotten close.’ And it’s even lower among churchgoers, where a couple’s chance of divorcing is more likely in the single digits or teens.”
