Confessions of A Queen: What It Was Like When I Got To Miss USA

In Inspiration, She Speaks by Julia Dalton10 Comments

Ever since I can remember, I watched the Miss USA competition on live network television. I watched the women mesmerized by their confidence, intelligence, and beauty. They had no idea that they were changing a little girl’s life. That they changed my life. At around age seven, I established my dream of becoming Miss USA. I wanted to inspire young women …

Letting Go Of A Boy Who Didn’t Value Me

In Inspiration, Love by Rylee4 Comments

I remember the night like it was yesterday. I was laying naked and humiliated next to a boy that God had told me to let go of weeks earlier. Rewind to early January, I began “talking” (as our society calls it these days) to a boy that had been my high school crush. He has bought us tickets to go …

The Power of Asking

In Devotions, Inspiration by Kristen Dalton Wolfe0 Comments

I interviewed Jennifer Garner for her movie, Miracles From Heaven. On the red carpet, her publicist said there would be no time for us to take photos with her. When I had my one on one interview with her later in the press junket, I didn’t ask to take a photo. I didn’t want to be seen as aggressive or to be inappropriate. I felt a little jealous later when I saw several of the other journalists had been bold and gotten a photo with her.

How To Be Free From Anxiety and Panic Attacks

In Inspiration by Amanda Greer9 Comments

Panic attacks are not mild worries about a stressful event in the future. They aren’t the knots a bride gets in her stomach right before walking down the aisle. They are forceful assaults on your mind and body and don’t take no for an answer. The dictionary defines an attack as an aggressive and violent action against a person or …

One Thing That’s Better Than Being Liked

In Devotions, Inspiration by Kristen Dalton Wolfe1 Comment

That night, I ended up wearing a white V-neck vest trimmed in faux fur spruced with silver metallic. I know it sounds crazy. Looking back, I wouldn’t have let myself walk out the door like that. But at the time, I liked it. Probably because it sparkled. No, definitely because it sparkled.

How To Be Confidently Humble

In Devotions, Inspiration by Kristen Dalton Wolfe2 Comments

I used to think humility meant I couldn’t receive a compliment without pointing out the flaws they must have overlooked. I used to think it meant I couldn’t shine and be all I wanted to be because I might step on someone’s toes. After all, I wouldn’t want to do that, then I might make someone feel uncomfortable or small. I thought humility was staying small so other people could shine.
