Details

Twenty-year-old American gymnast Shawn Johnson is a four-time Olympic gold and silver medalist and a national- and world-champion athlete. But she's no stranger to hard work and adversity - her loss of the major gymnastics prize everyone expected her to win in Beijing, the all-around Olympic gold medal, was the loss of a dream she'd worked for since childhood.

When Shawn suffered a potentially career-ending injury in a skiing accident, she found her life forced to a halt and had to rethink what was really important. She wasn't sure who she was anymore. She wasn't sure what her goals were. And she wasn't sure she was satisfied with where she was with her faith and God. Could she still find the right kind of success in life - the kind that doesn't involve medals or trophies, but peace, love and lasting joy?

Winning Balance: What I've Learned So Far about Love, Faith, and Living Your Dreams is the amazing true journey of how a young woman who won an Olympic gold medal on the balance beam became even more balanced.

I am such a big fan of Shawn Johnson. I have not read this book yet, but I am pretty confident about it. I wanted it for my birthday and was pretty sad that it was not there. :) I hope you enjoy!

In lue of the upcoming Olympics, I recently read "Winning Balance", the story of Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson. In this book, Shawn shares her story about her quest for the gold in gymnastics. Through her journey she learned about life, disappointment, and faith. This book is a great read and helps put everything into perspective. As a teenager, Shawn has done and seen more than some of us see in a lifetime! Very inspiring.
