Source: Received to Review
Book Description: It was a crisp winter day when six-year-old Kacey McCallister lost both of his legs, forever altering the course of his life. This unthinkable trial could have broken him, but from that day forward he chose to rise above his circumstances and learn to live without limits.
For those struggling to find hope in the depths of physical, spiritual, or emotional trials, this incredible story of one man’s unbreakable courage will inspire and motivate readers to not only survive but thrive amidst life’s challenges.
A true testament to the power of the human spirit, When Life Gets You Down, Rise Up! demonstrates the refining power that can be found in the midst of overwhelming odds, a power available to all who will take hold of it and rise.
My thoughts: Wow! This man is an inspiration. He knows what it means to "Rise Up!".
When Kacey was six he was in a horrible accident that took both of his legs. Instead of wallowing in self-pity, he has figured out how to do the things that he wanted to do. He doesn't give up, he just thinks outside the box.
I am truly amazed at the story that Kacey has to share. At the moment I am recovering from surgery that has me down for longer than I would like. Reading his story has taken me from my own misery and reminded me that life is good and that perseverance, grit, determination, etc make difficult circumstances doable. This man doesn't just go through life, he lives a quality life due to his own attitude and fortitude.
This book inspires to do and be better. One man can make a difference in helping others discover their better selves. I highly recommend this book to everyone, whether or not you are struggling.
This book does contain religious elements. It is not the main subject of the book, he shares how his faith helped him through difficult times.
