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.
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.

FaithfulReader.com featured Hillary Manton Lodge’s A Table by the Window in the April eNewsletter. Reviewer Evelyn Bence wrote, “When I read Christian fiction, I often feel as if writers are trying too hard — to relay their faith, teach a lesson, show (never tell) an emotion, overblow a plotline, take a literary tack…or maybe it’s that they’re not trying hard enough. So what a pleasant surprise to find this novel that didn’t once make me sigh with irritation.” Go here to read the full review.
