A journey with God

Life doesn’t always happen according to our expectations. Sometimes, we have to put our dreams in God’s hands and believe that whatever happens, God knows what’s best.

That is the story behind Joanne Dow, a 44-year-old female racewalker from New Hampshire. Despite several hardships, injuries and disappointments, Dow’s faith never faltered, even after the loss of her father.

An article in Parable Magazine, published by the Diocese of Manchester, highlights the faith journey of the mother of two who just qualified for the 2008 Olympics in Bejing, China. 

In the article, she explains how, even at times when things seemed pointless, she always believed that God had a plan for her. Dow also tells of several conversations she had with God in which she is reminded that her athleticism is a gift to be shared.
