Kerri Walsh Jennings is a gold medal mom.

Not only has she taken home the top award for women’s beach volleyball in the last three Summer Olympics, but she also works hard to be fully present in her three children’s lives.

“I’m in love with them,” Walsh Jennings tells PEOPLE. “They have made my life more beautiful and more meaningful than I ever thought possible.”

“I think the scale is always slightly lopsided, but that’s part of the balancing act: accepting things as they are, working really hard to control what I can control and have faith and let go,” Walsh Jennings, 35, says. “We signed up for this, and we knew it was going to be crazy and hard. But it’s the most beautiful challenge, for sure.”
