*Gabrielle Douglas has been a shining star since making her Olympic debut this year.
The young gymnast, who isn’t old enough to vote, says her journey has been about faith.
Gabby is releasing a book, “Grace, Gold & Glory: My Leap of Faith.”
“I want people to be inspired by my book,” Gabrielle said in a video that promotes the prose now available at Amazon.com.
“My faith stands [as] definitely the most important [thing] in my gymnastics career. God has given me this amazing talent, and He’s woken me up everyday, and kept me safe in the gym so He’s played a big role in my life,” she said.
She says no matter where she is, even if on an “international assignment,” her Bible comes along, she told Sister 2 Sister.
“I just pray that God keep me humble and keep me grounded. I don’t want to be this on top diva. I want to be this role model,” she said. “I want to be that blessing on other people.”
