Today, we have part one of a two-part series with our fabulous
guest, Trish Porter Topmiller. Trish is a 1988 U.S. Olympian in the
high jump, former world record holder for women ages 40-44 in the
high jump, and multiple times U.S. National and World Masters
Champion. Among other accomplishments, she is the author of two
books, titled King Here, and Rekindle Your Dreams.
Trish shares openly about the 2012 loss of her husband of 20 years (Pat Porter, who was a two-time U.S. Olympic team member) and 15-year old son Connor (a U.S. National Fencing medalist) in a plane accident as well as the more recent loss of her father to an addiction-induced suicide. In her book, King Here, she chronicles the life of her father and his journey to faith. For more information about Trish, you can visit: www.TrishPorterTopmiller.com.
In today's discussion, we focus on the determination, dedication, and decision to pursue a deeper faith, much like an athlete pursues an ambitious goal. I am amazed by Trish's athletic accomplishments as well as the evident faith that she shares with us. It is a faith that can only be achieved through truly clinging to the truths we find in God's word in the midst of trials.
