WHAT YOU WILL HEAR

My guest for The Happy Hour 416 is Lolo Jones. Lolo Jones is an Olympic athlete in Bobsledding and Track & Field. She is currently training for the 2022 Winter Olympics which will take place in Beijing! Lolo also recently released a book called Over It which is loaded with encouragement, overcoming failure and pursuing thankfulness.

Fun fact about Lolo: She is 1 of 11 athletes to compete in both winter and summer Olympics! What an amazing accomplishment! In today’s episode, Lolo shares about her childhood that led to her Olympic journey – from running personal bests in 2008 Beijing to losing the gold medal after hitting the 9th hurdle in the race. She also shares about social media and the press having a huge impact on her mental health, and how easy it was for her thankfulness to be ripped away. But I love how much she relied on her faith, she says “So many things in life will try to break you. But try. And you’re still here.” We could truly write a whole book just on the concept of “we’re still here.” I’m so inspired by Lolo’s perseverance and the way she honors Christ through her effort. Make sure to grab a copy of her book Over It!
