“I want people to be inspired by my book,” Gabrielle said in a video that promotes the prose now available at

“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.”
