Mary Lou Retton's Gateways to Happiness
Celebrated gymnast Mary Lou Retton shares the inspiring philosophies behind her success--and offers seven practical gateways to finding true happiness in your own life. Who can forget Mary Lou Retton's perfect vault and winning smile? Fifteen years after her Olympic triumph, Mary Lou is no longer the little girl on the Wheaties box--she's a dynamic, accomplished mother of two who has become one of America's most sought-after motivational speakers and inspiration to people everywhere. Now, in Mary Lou Retton's Gateways to Happiness, she shares her secrets for achieving a balanced, fulfilling career and life and presents seven gateways that can help you cultivate lasting happiness every day. Based on her remarkable experiences as an Olympic athlete, professional speaker and spokesperson, Christian, wife, and mother, Mary Lou Retton's Gateways to Happiness shows that, even with life's challenges and obstacles, true happiness is always within our reach. The seven gateways she presents--Family, Faith, Relationships, Attitude, Discipline, Health, and Laughter--are the tools we can use to improve our sense of contentment and well-being, as we follow our true dreams and ambitions, take care of our bodies, devote more time to the special people in our lives, and make our relationship with God an integral part of every day. For each gateway, Mary Lou provides concrete suggestions, action plans, and even recipes to help you embrace its principles and make it work for you. From communication exercises, to time management, to spiritual disciplines, Mary Lou's warm hearted prescriptions and advice will help you discover your deepest needs, reduce stress, and open the door to a life filledwith peace and joy. Flavored with inspiring stories from renowned athletes and celebrities, and brimming with the trademark enthusiasm and energy that have made her such a beloved American figure, Mary Lou Retton's Gateways to Happiness is a fresh and engaging collection of wisdom that will enable you to realize your true, God-given potential. The next time you look in the mirror that winning smile will belong to you! From Mary Lou Retton's introduction. On August 3, 1984, I stopped being just Mary Lou Retton from Fairmont, West Virginia, and discovered that overnight I'd become "America's Sweetheart." Without the unfaltering support of my family, and without the strength I received from my faith in the Lord, I never would have made it through this difficult period. They helped me understand that this overwhelming transformation in my life was not something to run away from, but rather to be embraced. I came to realize that it was just one part of the larger journey I was on--what Dr. Billy Graham calls our "journey toward happiness." Even with all my preparation and training for success in the Olympics, I was never aware that I was also preparing for something else. Something which would last for the rest of my life, long after I was able to mount a balance beam or stick a perfect landing. I was training for happiness. True joy and happiness are within reach for all of us no matter how bad our circumstances may seem, I believe that our happiness depends on how we respond to certain basic opportunities, or gateways, that God has opened to each and every one of us--Family, Faith, Relationships, Attitude, Discipline, Health, and Laughter--gateways that will take us onestep further down the road to true happiness.

Courage to Soar (with Bonus Content)
This eBook contains the full text of Courage to Soar, plus an exclusive bonus story that is not found in the hardcover! Simone Biles’ entrance into the world of gymnastics may have started on a daycare field trip in her hometown of Spring, Texas, but her God-given talent, passion, and perseverance have made her one of the top gymnasts in the world, as well as a four-time winner of Olympic gold in Rio de Janeiro. But there is more to Simone than the nineteen medals—fourteen of them gold—and the Olympic successes. Through years of hard work and determination, she has relied on her faith and family to stay focused and positive, while having fun competing at the highest level and doing what she loves. Here, in her own words, Simone takes you through the events, challenges, and trials that carried her from an early childhood in foster care to a coveted spot on the 2016 Olympic team. Along the way, Simone shares the details of her inspiring personal story—one filled with the kinds of daily acts of courage that led her, and can lead you, to even the most unlikely of dreams.
