Winning Balance – Shawn Johnson

Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book. I am asked to give my honest opinion about the book.

I'm not normally one to read these kinds of books. But I love gymnastics so I figured this would be a good read and something different that I knew I would enjoy. I loved Shawn in the 2008 Olympics so I was familiar with her story ....or so I though.

Shawn does a great job in this book of her life story so far, for only being 20 years old she sure has had alot of life experiences for someone her age. I really enjoyed reading of how hard it is for the gymnast to get to Olympic level. Sometimes when watching the games you forget the person is just as human as you or I.

Although she is young Shawn does a great job sharing her lessons in life and how a little bit of Faith and trust in God can go a long ways. Although Shawn will not be at the 2012 Games, I wish her the best in life post gymnastics. I can only imagine how hard it will be for her walking away from something that has taken up so much of her life. It will be like a whole new born again Shawn.
