After winning Olympic silver, teen snowboarder Jake Taylor is struggling with sudden fame when he’s offered a gig he can’t refuse: becoming a spokesperson for a state-of-the-art athletic training facility. Training for its first competition, Jake relies on his faith to help him find ways to use his fame to help others . . . when athletes mysteriously start getting sabotaged one by one. Time is running out for Jake and his girlfriend, Sophie, to figure out what is going on before he is also sabotaged . . . or worse.
Helplessness washes over me. Sophie’s words about
there being one person who I can always count on come to
me. But I have been trying to put God first. Haven’t I? I’ve
been praying more and trying to use my gifts for good. What
else can I possibly do? What would Jesus do? That’s the saying
Mom said she likes to use when making decisions.
I’ve been trying so hard to do what I think is right and to
follow the advice of others, but I rarely stop and actually pray
about my choices. I’ve sure made some bad ones recently.
Maybe if I had prayed first, I wouldn’t have gotten mixed up
with Mr. McKenzie, or posed for that stupid calendar, or
agreed to spending time with Elle. Might as well try Mom’s
advice because winging it by myself certainly isn’t working so
great. Maybe she’s on to something.
Alright God. I’ll try to remember to pray before I leap. I’ll make
the choice to put you first in all I do. Now, how do we get out of this
