Hour 2 - The Importance of Focus
Olympic Gold medalist Gabby Douglas said something Chris really resonates with—a principle from gymnastics that makes a big difference in the Christian life.
Tricia McMillan, formerly Tricia Boyle, is the coordinating producer of Chris Fabry Live! She claims North Dakota as home, is a graduate of Moody Bible Institute and Moody Theological Seminary and has worked for Moody Radio since 2000. She and her husband, Nate, live in the Chicago area.
Gabrielle Douglas is a two-time Olympic gold medalist. At the 2012 Summer Olympics, she made history, becoming the first U.S. gymnast to take home a team and an individual gold medal in the same Olympics. Gabrielle began her training at age six, and became the Virginia State Champion only two years later. When she was fourteen, she left her family in Virginia Beach to train with coach Liang Chow in Des Moines, Iowa. Under Chow’s guidance, and with tremendous faith in God’s plan for her, Gabrielle competed in the Olympic Trials and walked away with the only guaranteed spot on the team. Since her Olympic triumph, Gabrielle has used her platform to inspire millions with a powerful message: With hard work and persistence, any dream is possible.
