Inspirational speaker and Life Without Limbs author Nick Vujicic was spotted on the beach in Hawaii recently, enjoying the sun with his new wife Kanae Miyahara.
Just before he left on his honeymoon, he tweeted a message of praise to God, saying, "Here we go –WOO HOO! God is AWESOME!"
The two were married a few days before Valentine's Day at an undisclosed location in California after being engaged in August.
Vujicic, who was born with no arms or legs, was said to have placed the wedding band on his wife's finger himself while she in turn placed a ring-bearing necklace around his neck.
Committed to being a devoted husband, the 29-year-old preacher hoped to do all he could to be a blessing to Miyahara, who he believes is the greatest gift "after life, salvation, and a relationship with God."
Days before the wedding, he asked on his Twitter page, "anyone wanna offer some advice for me to help me be the best husband I can be?"
Thousands of people from all over the world who have read his book, heard him speak, or know about his story of faith have flooded his Facebook page with congratulations.
"I'm happy to see you happy, my hero," Smile Pepear wrote. "Wish you all happiness in your married life!"
Loretta Burn commented, "I met you last year at Nortland and have been a big fan for years. All I can say is, she's one lucky girl to have captured the heart of such a great guy like you!"
"You are a miracle in motion and an example to all what the power of love, faith and belief in yourself and your dreams can do," Darshan Gabriel Shanti added. "God bless you and your entire family and all your followers and the people you have yet to touch."
"If you've achieved all you have so far alone, looking forward to seeing how much more you achieve now there's two of you," Rob Wright said.
Born with Tetra-amelia syndrome, a rare disorder characterized by the absence of all four limbs, Vujicic does not let his disability overtake his life, having learned how to write, use the computer, play tennis, drive, beat a drum, pen an autobiography, start his own nonprofit foundation, and even surf.
At every speaking engagement, he has been vocal about God's vital role in shaping and renewing his life, which was once full of depression and bitterness.
"I found the purpose of my existence and also the purpose of my circumstance," he revealed. "There's a purpose for why you're in the fire."
Through his faith in God, whom he credits for turning his life around and giving him hope, Vujicic has touched millions of lives with his testimony, encouraging those who are broken and weak to trust in the Lord for provision and freedom.
"It's not about the outside. It is about being complete on the inside," he shared at a previous Harvest event in Seattle. "Because I have seen so many people complete on the outside but who don't know the truth. It is the truth that sets you free and who the son sets free is free indeed."
Vujicic's next speaking engagement will take place at Calvary Community on April 13.
Until then, he continues to enjoy his short time off celebrating a new chapter in his life with his bride. He also hopes to have children in the future, which is in fact, medically possible for him.
"I can't wait to be a father," he shared on "60 Minutes" previously. "We're going to be able to hug and play you know but I think it's just going to be a crazy day walking my daughter down the aisle."
