I was 12 years old when I had my first break out. I remember being in the 6th grade and learning how to apply concealer for the first time. I walked through the hallways wondering why I was the only girl with bumpy skin crusted over with foundation that I was too young to wear. I was thankful for it because at least it hid some of the redness.

No one ever tells you. It’s all balloons and storks, beautiful showers, and adorable little clothes. Swooning over baby head smell and little toes. Setting up the nursery and filling an overnight bag for the hospital with items you never would have thought of on your own. (Tennis balls to soothe back pain, anyone?) This one little baby is a life changer.
We’ve all been there….embarrassed to be seen because we were experiencing one of the many possible skin issues that girls experience. Acne is obviously the most common problem and statistics state that an estimated 80% of all guys and girls between the ages of 11 and 30 get acne breakouts at one time or another.

One day, someone spoke words to me that changed my life forever.

But yes, he was right. This was revelational, eye-opening, a complete paradigm shift to the way I had been seeing myself and living. This meant I was royalty. This meant I was His Princess. This meant I was born for royal purpose.
I’d like to say that I’m writing this having reached the goal I made for myself when I was a little girl in Sunday school after first hearing about how chastity pleases God. I wish I had made it to my wedding day a without any prior sexual encounters. But unfortunately, that’s not my story. […]
I competed at the 2010 Miss USA/Universe Pageant, representing the District of Columbia. I didn’t grow up a painted baby, meaning, I did not grow up competing in Toddlers and Tiaras pageant system. From the age of six on I was a competitive equestrian and highly decorated Junior Olympian in swimming. My time outside of […]
Resentment is written all over this story. The interesting thing about this story is that it is culturally relevant. The idea of a surrogate carrying your child is thought to be both chic and smart.
