Swimming For Freedom By Tera Bradham

Swimming For Freedom By Tera Bradham

Tera Bradham was born to prove people wrong. The fastest swimmer her age in the United States by age ten, many believed ''Tera the Terror'' was destined for the Olympics.

Her fiercely competitive spirit and unmatched intensity knew no limits until Tera suffered a sudden, devastating shoulder injury that derailed her promising career. Although she trusted in God, she also wrestled with doubts of his goodness throughout subsequent years of misdiagnoses, chronic pain, and crippling disappointment. Her injury finally forced her to fully surrender to God.

Then her miracle came, or so she thought. Her shoulder was successfully reconstructed, and after two more years of grueling recovery, Tera found the courage to swim again and pursue her dreams with renewed faith. 

Swimming for Freedom tells the story of Tera's unconventional comeback and shows that through God, all things are possible. What started as an Olympic dream ended in her true miracle: the freedom of a life in Christ. Tera's story will inspire you to rise up, dream again, and fight for his calling on your life.

My Thoughts:
Swimming for Freedom, by Tera Bradham  is a positive story, that with God all things are possible. I loved this book and could not put it down. It was such an inspiration to read, especially during a difficult time in our history. 
I finally felt like I was reading some good news for a change. This book inspired me personally to fight for what God has called me to do. I felt very challenged by this book and was just in awe of Tera's faith. This book had me in tears, but also had me cheering for Tera. Lots of mixed emotions when reading Swimming for Freedom, but in a great way! 

This book is for everyone, you don't have to be an avid lover of swimming. I pray this book gets great media attention, but the author is incredible! I loved every second of this book.
