Lolo, Gabby, and Trashing Good Role Models

How many of you loved watching the Olympics?

I so enjoyed seeing the gymnasts fly through the air and the runners going at such amazing speed.

But what I didn’t like was seeing how those Christian Olympic athletes were treated.

Lolo Jones was criticized for admitting she was a virgin, and Gabby Douglas was criticized for thanking God for her gold medal, and even for her hair!?

Those girls should be looked up to in our culture, not ridiculed.  I want Piper to have strong female role models, and Lolo and Gabby are so much better in the spotlight than the anything-goes type of celebrities.

So, thank you, Lolo and Gabby for sticking up for your beliefs and giving God the glory!

Here’s a Bible verse for both of you!

“Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because great is your reward in heaven.” (Luke 6:23)

    Amen! Awesome role models for my daughters any day of the week. You, too, Bristol.

  • CarolS

    I agree with everything you said. But I have to add, YOU are the best role model she can have! ;)

  • Tiffany

    Amen Bristol! I agree completely. And I think these girls are AWESOME.

  • Connie Haviland

    it is wonderful to see young people, stand up for what they believe in, their faith and not let others tear them down or ruin what goodness they represent

  • Nicole

    Amen!!!!!! Thank you Bristol for being a strong and positive role model for young girls.
    God bless you!

  • Justine Stewart

    I hope there will still be role models like them (and you of course Bristol) when my 7 month old daughter is older!

  • Paulette Jones

    Agreed! My daughter is being taught to be a strong christian and I would love her to know she is not the only one! Another amazing post Bristol!

    Why is the left so fearful of God? He loves us.

    • Marcia

      Ian, many on the left love your Godd too. As for the rest of us, it’s not that we are fearful, we just don’t share your belief.
