Belmont Abbey College student3“After arriving and becoming a part of the community, I fell in love and couldn’t imagine leaving. The spirit of the community, the classes, the people, and campus itself became my home away from home. My college experience continues to encourage me and push to grow and flourish academically and spiritually in ways that cannot be found anywhere else.”

Join us for a reception to greet Olympian and Catholic mother Rebecca Dussault at Belmont Abbey College on Friday, June 19. Rebecca has had a successful skiing career and now is a homeschool mom of four in Colorado.

 

Faithfully Fit for the Kingdom with Olympic Ski Racer Rebecca Dussault

 

2006 Olympic Cross Country Skier and 2010 Winter Triathlon World Champion, Rebecca Dussault (Do-so), will give us insight into being Faithfully Fit for the Kingdom. Having been an elite athlete most of her life, she knows well the rigors of becoming successful at something your passionate about without compromising.

 

For her that is Faith, Family, and Fitness. Through her unique story as a devoted daughter of the Church and world-class athlete, you’ll see how she ties it all together for His greater glory. She is a home schooling mother trying to make saints our of four young children, and she partners with her husband to run four small businesses. But, she still gets herself out the door to maintain her spiritual and physical health!

 

Her biography entitled Mass Start: Toeing the Line for Faith, Family, and Fitness is hot off the press and will be sold after her presentation. You may also visit www.MassStart.org, to learn more about her ministries.
