So here you go guys and I'm sure most of you guessed the other day who our mystery athlete was going to be and so here's the teaser for Chanelle Price’s Story @cpricerun, the middle-distance runner who represents the U.S.A 🇺🇸and specializes in the 800 meters. In 2014 She won Gold 🥇at the World Indoor Championships and has also enjoyed numerous other successes throughout her career.
————————————————————By the age of 17 Chanelle had won the highly respected Gatorade award for the best athlete across all sports in the US. and that’s when the pressure really began to tell. Chanelle admits after building her whole identity on winning, she just couldn’t cope with not running well, to the point were when things didn’t go her way, she would literally have the darkest thoughts about how life was no longer worth living.
It was at one of the darkest points in her journey that Chanelle, after one particularly painful defeat, made a decision that she said changed her life and that you’ll hear more about when we share her story.
So we’re all looking forward to that being here for you all hopefully early next week and so for now we hope you enjoy her little teaser and have a great rest of the weekend and hopefully you’ll choose to join with us in sharing in our ‘Fight for the Fatherless’ family prayer tomorrow, which we’d all love for you to do. 🙂
I understand the tendency of parents who want to lock their little girls away, I've heard the jokes about needing to buy a rifle, especially from parents who have survived abuse.
I empathize because, even I have moments clouded by fear. It is in these moments that I feel the need to control every aspect of everything in my life and my children's. .
But thats not, the mother I want to be or choose to be. It is my desire to raise my kids with freedom that allows respect and dignity to flourish. The autonomy to be adventurous and make mistakes and the wisdom to learn not only from their own mistakes but of others around them. And the knowledge that mommy will always love you.
This is 10yr old Ocean,
May she always be strong, resilient and free to be her truest self.
