Family Night with Olympic Bronze Medalists in Sun Valley on Ice This Weekend
This might be the closest you get to a U.S. Olympic star if you haven't been fortunate enough to meet Idaho's own, Kristen Armstrong. Sun Valley is hosting their Summer on Ice and you're invited to week three with the stars. This story melted my heart during the Olympics this year.
Husband and wife team Alexa and Chris Knierim took Bronze and Gold with our hearts during the 2018 Olympics in PyeongChang ⛸
Do you remember? Alexa was recovering from three surgeries she had back in 2016 that almost claimed her life due to this rare gastrointestinal illness. Everyone was keeping fingers crossed and hoping they pulled medals and that's exactly what they did.
There is an emotional video of their ride to the Olympics and taking Bronze that I believe would touch you. The quote that stood out to me and I wrote it down was about faith.
Faith is believing without seeing what's at the end of the road. - Alexa Knierim
It's hard to have faith unless you believe and that means holding on to this emotion when it doesn't work out. This woman is unbelievable and their story is super sweet. This is a couple that appreciates each fan and every opportunity. Alexa's mom actually took out a second mortgage on their home to pay for skating. I think a lot of parents can somewhat relate to how expensive your kid's sports can be. I can't imagine.
I couldn't attach the other file but take a quick look when you get a chance. Very moving video that should put a smile on your face. They won Bronze medals representing our country and we should thank them. They made us all very proud 🇺🇸
