Liao Zhi, whose legs were amputated below the knees surviving an earthquake in 2008, not only managed to keep dancing, but also inspirs others to experience a new life in Christ. 

There is a the question that can fascinating theories , such as "chicken soup for the soul" and "philosophy of life" lead to changes ?Liao zhi ,a Christian, dancer who lost her legs in 2008 Sichuan Earthquake, shares that the artificial theories do little to change life. The growth of life relays on the grace of creator.

All growth of the life relays on the grace of the creator, like the grass’s growth relays on sunshine moist, we should come to the lord with faith. Human cannot make life grow relying on man-made theories, like grass cannot create rainwater to support itself.

“Many of man-made theories cannot bear closer analysis. Some make simple to complex; some that looking like doing effort to growth of life is just a short copy function,” says Liao zhi,”Theories is useless to the growth of life which is just like mirage and barmecide feast.”

She adds that as the word of Jesus says,” I am the way, the truth and the life.” Jesus’ words and his life are the bread people need most. His grace and love can make his followers lack nothing.
