Welcome to my celebration of Women's History Month! You can read more about this month and why I am writing about admirable Christian women here. For now, let's jump in!
The Forgiven Former Feminist's Female Christian Role Model of the Day is... Gabby Douglas!
Gabby Douglas is a truly remarkable young woman. Douglas is the first African-American gymnast and first woman of color to become the individual all-around champion in Olympic history and she did it at just 16 years old! Douglas is outspoken about her faith. She speaks to the press often about the integral part that her faith in Christ plays in her success as an Olympic athlete. Douglas also regularly tweets Bible verses and encouragement. If you would like to learn more about Gabby, check out her website here.
