Olympic Gymnast Leans On God After Miscarriage

In 2008, gymnast Shawn Johnson wowed the world with her incredible Olympic performance that won her a gold medal. She thought she would feel on top of the world and that she had finally found her purpose, but as she stood on that podium, Shawn felt completely purposeless. That’s when she turned to God and truly grew in her faith.

After the Olympics and retiring from gymnastics, Shawn went on to marry her husband, Andrew East.  Watch as Shawn and Andrew walk us through the ups and downs of their hectic careers, early years of marriage, and even the heartbreak of miscarriage - to discover time and time again, that their ultimate hope is in God.  This Christian couple leaned on God throughout and Shawn said it best when he said, “There’s no more encouraging words, there’s nothing that can really help you through a hard time than knowing the Scripture.”
