Meet Kelly Clark.

Shifting Points
Salt & Light Volume XI, Issue 4 by D. Scott Prindle

"Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men." (Ephesians 6:7)


Meet Kelly Clark
She is the winning-est athlete (men & women) in half-pipe history.

A four-time Olympian and two-time medalist in the women's snowboarding event (gold in 2002, bronze in 2010, ? Sochi in 2014), Kelly had achieved everything that was in her heart to do at eighteen years old.

She still felt empty. At an event in 2005 she witnessed another boarder console a competitor who had just failed to qualify by telling her, "It's all right. God still loves you."

With a Gideon Bible from her hotel room, she reached out to the other athlete for answers and eventually became a Christian. In her own words,

"That was a huge shifting point for me where my snowboarding became this amazing expression and fun thing, rather than this thing that I had to do. It became this thing that I was made to do and I could actually enjoy, and there was so much freedom in it because I wasn’t doing it to prove to people who I was."

"Through my relationship with God I learned who I was, and was comfortable in who I was. But I’ll tell you, I’ve never had more fun snowboarding, and I’ve never been more free."

Aside from her competitive efforts in snowboarding, Clark founded The Kelly Clark Foundation in 2010 to foster youth snowboarding.

The Foundation realizes that the key to success starts with the opportunity to follow your dreams and they aim to give every child the opportunity to make his or her dream a reality.

Life Is Ministry
Your job does not fully define you. You are more than your career. All of your life is ministry, just as Kelly Clark's young legacy is expressed through Snowboarding.

You have many gifts and God uses them all in the course of living your life each and every day.

If you catch Kelly soaring into the sky competing for her 3rd Olympic medal in Sochi, think of the high calling of your present life in Christ.

Are you being the person God made you to be and doing what He called you to do?
