Kim Hamilton was anything but a typical world-class gymnast. She wasn’t white, she didn’t come from a middle-class family, and she was tall for a gymnast. But facing those obstacles was nothing compared to the challenges she faced at home. There, she tumbled in a secret world filled with drugs, violence, and financial strain. She met Unfavorable Odds but found hope by persevering through the pain.  Here, Kim shares the techniques she learned to catapult herself from the past into the purpose God intended for her life.

"Kim's journey…will fill you with joy and hope, rooted in the certainty that perseverance is the greatest gift of all." Leslie Visser, Sportscaster
