Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone Talks Overcoming Fear: ‘Lord Has Transformed My Heart’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Olympic track and field gold medalist Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone reveals how God helped her overcome fear and anxiety in her upcoming book, “Far Beyond Gold.”

In a video posted on Instagram, she shared why she wrote the book.

“Hey guys! So, the release date of ‘Far Beyond Gold’ is quickly approaching,” she began. “January 30, it is out. And I just wanted to come on really quick and talk about why I wanted to write this book in the first place. I just turned 24 years old, and I felt like, ‘I don’t really feel like I have some amazing story to share in terms of long-lived life experience.’”

“But what I did feel like was relatable – I feel like everyone goes through some sort of fear. Goes through some sort of anxiety wanting to please people or perform to a certain standard or even just reach the personal goal we set for ourselves,” she continued. “The reality is that we all fall short. I think this book kind of just gives and inside look into how truly the Lord has transformed my heart in that.”

“I hope that it encourages others on their walk and faith and in their life,” she concluded. “It’s just a deeper dive into who Sydney is because I know social media gives some sort of a glimpse, track and field gives a little less of a glimpse, but I think this was definitely an opportunity to just be honest about me, about my life, about how I’ve gotten to where I am, and what the Lord has done. So, I hope this encourages you.”

McLaughlin-Levrone captioned the post, “We all have times of fear and doubt in life, Far Beyond Gold is my story of overcoming that in Christ! I pray it encourages you or someone you love! ✨🙏🏽🙌🏽 #FarBeyondGold.”

Through the book, the Olympian hopes to share with readers how to “Conquer your fears in Christ’s strength…Stand strong in your identity in him…Push past your perceived limits…[and] Overcome the challenges you’re facing.”

“I pray that Far Beyond Gold will encourage you to conquer your fears, stand firm in your faith, and see just how much freedom is truly possible with Christ at the center of your life,” she wrote on Instagram.

“You know that feeling of being held back by your fears? Or the desire to be perfect and constantly failing? I do. I actually know those feelings all too well,” McLaughlin-Levrone wrote…

“His overwhelming grace, love, and truth shattered my pursuit of perfection and people-pleasing,” the gold medalist added. “This is an intimate look into a side of my life that you haven’t seen before. Yes, I face hurdles off the track too!
