Courage to Soar

I don’t know about you all, but I loved watching the Olympics this summer, and every four years.  I am always inspired by the gymnasts and their stories of how far they’ve come–their struggles and triumphs, their hopes and fears.  I love watching as they progress throughout the Games, and usually go on Dancing with the Stars and write a biography; I eat it up, as do many young girls.

This year’s champion, medalist, and author is Simone Biles.  My younger sister, her best friend, people everywhere in my community were talking about her, amazed and her accomplishments and helicopter turns on the balance beam.  Thus, when I saw the opportunity to get this book, I jumped at the chance.  My sister and her friend ate it up, and the life story of Biles became a common topic of conversation between them.  Biles’s story greatly inspired the two of them to pursue fitness and faith, and I loved seeing the joy that they received from Biles’s book.  I would highly recommend this to fans of Biles and gymnastics in general!
