‘Winning Balance’ is the memoirs of the American Gold-Medal Gymnast – Shawn Johnson.
The life of an Olympic gymnast has both highs and lows. Reflecting on the past 20 years, Shawn writes her personal story about the incredible highs of winning a Gold Medal and the crushing blows of her career-ending knee injury. Read about:
• How her love for Gymnastics blossomed
• The day she received her fist fan mail
• Shawn’s first day at the Karoyli Ranch
• The Olympic experience
• Coping with the Media
• The relationship with God that grounded her throughout her career
At the end of each chapter are short sections called ‘Lesson’s I’ve Learnt’, keeping the focus of her book clear – to inspire you through her mistakes, achievements and learnt wisdom. More of a journal than an autobiography, this inspirational book will help fans, wannabe Olympians, and young girls discover the winning attitude to achieve their dreams and the God who will lead, sustain and propel them.
“Sometimes the real victory comes from simply not giving up. Just remember: God is big enough to handle every challenge, and he is loving enough to calm every fear.” – Shawn Johnson, from her book ‘Winning Balance’.
“As long as you’ve done your best, making mistakes doesn’t matter. You and I are human; we will mess up. What counts is learning from your mistakes and getting back up when life has knocked you down.” – Shawn Johnson, from her book ‘Winning Balance’.
Winning Balance by Shawn Johnson, Nancy French was published by Tyndale House in April 2013 and is our 60115th best seller. The ISBN for Winning Balance is 9781414380926.
