Our Olympic Hopeful

Thanks to a good friend's post at the 4Real forum, we have found our Olympic athlete to cheer for when the Winter Olympics start in February.

Rebecca Dussault is a cross-country skier from Colorado. She's a faith-on-your-sleeve, in-your-face kind of Catholic and proud of it. She's chosen as her patron Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati -- a young Ctholic leader who loved skiing. She's been homeschooled and plans to homeschool her hoped-for large family (at this point, she only has one boy and he's 3).

She's the kind of woman I want my daughters to look to for inspiration. She's the kind of athlete I want my boys to look to for guidance. Check out her website -- it's amazing what she is willing to say and do!

Go Rebecca!

The British aren't exactly champion cross country skiers, so we'll cheer for her too!
