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.

Outstanding! A wonderfully written book that really hits home the fact that you should always believe in yourself. Jen Bricker is an amazing woman, one that you can truly look up to and remind you to always strive to do your best irregardless of the situation. Her situation was so sad, being given up as an infant because of her special needs. Her family didn’t want her and I could not imagine knowing how that feels. Her story is heartbreaking but only for that short moment, then her life turned around.
She was adopted by a wonderful couple in Illinois, whom loved her from the moment they found out about her. Already being parents of three boys they longed for a little girl and Jen was their soon to be baby! She was so lucky to have been able to be adopted by such an awesome family. Right from the get-go her new parents and siblings accepted her as she was. They were there for her when others weren’t, they supported her in everything that she did.
This is truly a story of overcoming odds, living for herself and believing in an awesome God. She is an inspiration, she overcame a disability that could have left her hating on life and feeling sorry for herself. But she did it, she pushed herself and found that she can do anything. She travels the world to inspire others, she became a gymnast and much more. She has done things that most of us just dream about and she didn’t let anything stand in her way. Sure she has had her ups and downs, but honestly who doesn’t.
Loved this book! It was a great reminder to always strive to be better and to do better, to believe in God and to never let anything stand in your way. I recieved this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. I will be recommending!!
