015: Softball, Glory, and God’s Story with Leah Amico

Some of the greatest lessons in life are taught through sports–teamwork, endurance, grit, perseverance, sacrifice, the mental game, facing fears, trust, and patience. 

In this episode, I sit with three-time Olympic softball gold medalist Leah Amico as she shares her humble story of perseverance, sacrifice, faith, and victory. She was on the cover of Sports Illustrated, featured on a cereal box and in several sports-related books.  She is also a motivational speaker who travels all over the world teaching others leadership, mental mindset, and goal setting.
