Have you ever been through a hard time in life? Ever wonder why bad things happen? Amber Neben has you covered in her latest book, When Shmack Happens. The two-time Olympic cyclist for Team USA knows a thing or two about "shmack" -- her word for describing adversity that comes our way in life. Follow Amber's journey as she overcomes major obstacles both on and off the bike -- and encourages you to join her in developing the perseverance, patience, perspective, and power that only Christ can give us.
Very few people may know or understand what road cycling is, but everyone knows what it means to be an Olympian. The champion road cyclist chronicles her disappointments and failures, as well as amazing comebacks and victories -- while thrilling readers along the way with gripping stories of faith and hope. After reading When Shmack Happens, you'll feel equipped and encouraged to face life's tough moments, and find yourself cheering for Amber to get back on the bike . . .one more time. Learn what it means to be a spiritual champion in God's eyes.
But it doesn't stop there. Amber has a vision for helping children, even those with disabilities, to realize that they too can live their dream. Through the Dare To Be Project she encourages them and helps them to understand that no dream is too big, or too high, or out of reach - least of all - that no dream is impossible.
Amber started The Dare To Be Project out of a passion to make a lasting impact on a child's life through a gift and a message, just as that baseball player did for her over 30 years ago. She wants to reach out to underserved kids with a bike and a message of encouragement. She wants to inspire them to keep fighting, to get up off the mat again, to work hard or even harder, and to Dare To Be whatever it is they dream to be.
The Dare To Be Project, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) charity founded by USA Olympic cyclist Amber Neben, aims to make lasting impacts on children in need through an unconditional gift and an inspirational message -- to Dare To Be a doctor, a teacher, the President . . . whoever or whatever it is they dream to be.
