Simone Biles is a gymnast from God: she's got talent, passion, dedication and His blessing to be one of the greatest ones at what she does. Today, she's a pro athlete, a 4-time Olympic triumphant and a humble, caring, loving person. Overall, she's got as much as 19 (!) medals, and that's something to be proud of and to strive for.
At the same time, Simone is about so much more than just sports. Hard work is something she's been used to ever since she was a little girl, and her family and her strong faith helped her overcome all of her fears, break through all the barriers and become a legendary athlete. Her loved ones taught her to always focus on the positive and have fun, no matter what she does.
Courage to Soar is her autobiographical story, a look into her diary and a revealingly open dialogue with the readers. The girl takes the fans through the multiple challenges and trials, all those life tests that made her stronger and more confident. Very few people know that she's a foster kid, but that's exactly what makes her a great gymnast and a modern-day role model for countless young ladies who are going through the same difficulties as she was back in the day.
So, if you love inspiring success stories and want to experience it all "first-hand", Courage to Soar would be a wonderful pick for the holiday. This is a deeply intimate story, filled with everyday's hard work, courage, bravery, strong will and God's guidance. Simone Biles shows us that nothing's impossible as long as you believe in yourself and are ready to go for the biggest price - a shiny golden medal that you see only on the TV screen.
