Gabby Douglas praises God for winning Olympic gold Print E-mail

According to the Christian Post, American Olympic gold medal winning gymnast Gabby Douglas praised God following her amazing win in the women's gymnastics all-around event in London on Thursday, August 2, 2012.

After winning, the 16-year-old gave an interview with NBC and celebrated the moment by praising God and offering her thanks for an amazing blessing. She definitely isn't afraid to display her faith.

Douglas testified in the interview: "It is everything I thought it would be; being the Olympic champion, it definitely is an amazing feeling. And I give all the glory to God. It's kind of a win-win situation. The glory goes up to Him and the blessings fall down on me."

What an interesting way to see it that way: a win-win situation.

Gabby also took to Twitter to continue her praise. She tweeted: "Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things He does for me."

Then she said, "I love my family, dogs and most importantly God :)"

Not only did Douglas praise God by giving Him the glory after her win, she says she also prays.

Studies show that it's "It’s cool to be kind…again" Print E-mail

We think that we know “cool” when we see it—but do we? Case in point: At the mall the other day, I happened to be standing near a group of high schoolers when a teenaged girl walked by, holding her kid brother's hand. We all heard her say, "Before we meet up with Mom, why don’t we surprise her and get her some of those flowers she likes?" Then one of the high schoolers turned to her friends and said, "Oh, wow! That's cool."

That was a surprise to me. When I was a teen, cigarettes and the Grateful Dead were cool. Before that, fast cars with fins and the bad-boy image of James Dean were cool. But buying flowers for your mom? That was so-o-o not cool. Except that now it really is, according to new research. Today, cool still lives—but it's no longer the same as the historical idea of coolness as a rebellious, tough, risk-taking, aloof youth.
