'MY ONLY REASON for racing'

NOTHING CAN PREVENT you from expressing God and using the talents He gives to all His children. Not even a diagnosis of ill health. I'm grateful to have learned this through an active life of teaching swimming, dance, gymnastics, and other sports.

As a young child, I'd often been told that I was a "china doll," delicate and a bit frail. I didn't like thinking of myself this way, and had learned in Christian Science Sunday School that I didn't have to accept any limitations on my physical capabilities. I took comfort in Christ Jesus' words, "I can of mine own self do nothing" (John 5:30), which helped me see the need to rely on God. I also often thought about another passage in the Bible that highlighted this idea: "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me" (Phil. 4:13).
