Sylvia St. Cyr is excited for the launch of her first book, Love vs. Fear.

The Niverville native has held many titles: journalist, publishing consultant, blogger, singer, wife, and mother. Now she can add author to the list.

"It was incredible," St. Cyr says about the first moments of holding the actual physical copy of her book for the first time. "Years of work went into it. A lot of joy, and a lot of tears, and then getting to actually hold it is so surreal."

The book is written around 1 John 4:18. The verse talks about fear and she based it off that because we all deal with fear.

"What does [living without fear] actually look like?" said St. Cyr. "That's the essence of my book." 

It's a book meant to encourage readers with the reality of God's love for them. Knowing that is something that St. Cyr says transformed her own life. 

"When you remember who you are, and that is a child of God and that will never change, then anything and everything else I do can dispel fear," she said.

St. Cyr is launching her book on Saturday, September 16 at McNally Robinson Booksellers at the Grant Shopping Centre in Winnipeg. 

The night begins at 7:30 p.m.
