Review: Swimming With Faith:The Missy Franklin Story by:Natalie Davis Miller
About the Book:
Missy Franklin is one of the most talented swimmers in the world. She is a four-time Olympic gold medalist and currently holds the world record in the 200-meter backstroke and American records in both the 100-meter and 200-meter backstroke. She was Swimming World’s World Swimmer of the Year and the American Swimmer of the Year in 2012. This story tells of her rise in fame and humbleness in the sport.
Kids these days just like they have done for years look up to different athletes and as time goes on they follow these individuals and basically idolize them. It is hard to find one that leads a Godly God fearing life as they should. So if your child finds one, that's a good thing. So Missy Franklin could be counted as one of the top athletes of her time that has a God centered focus. She is in no way ashamed of professing Christ and telling the world all about Him and her relationship with Him.
Even through all of her struggles she still has managed to become an Olympic gold medalist and achieve many world records and she also does a lot of charity work. She is a good role model and I enjoyed reading her story. I wish there were more like her!
