Hand-holding, Flowers & Nice Gestures

“A common misconception about strong women
is that we don’t need
the hand-holding, the flowers, and the nice gestures,
and what I’ve found to be true
is that it’s the strong women who want it the most.”

Facing My Part, My Fault

Sex So Early

“I know the kind of drama that being sexually active brings to your life.
I felt that if it was good for me to take a break, it might be good for other young girls, too.
You see, I think I would be a whole different person if I hadn’t had sex so early.
Everybody was saying, ‘Do it!’ but nobody ever said, ‘You don’t have to do it’.
I think hearing that would have made a huge difference in my life.”

Television Personality, Model, Social Activist,
Journalist & Spokesperson

by the water of the flood, neither shall there again be a flood to destroy the earth.”
God said, “This is the sign of the covenant which I am making between Me and you
and every living creature that is with you, for all successive generations;
I set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant
between Me and the earth. It shall come about, when I bring a cloud over the earth,
that the bow will be seen in the cloud, and I will remember My covenant,
which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh;
and never again shall the water become a flood to destroy all flesh.
When the bow is in the cloud, then I will look upon it, to remember
the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh
that is on the earth.”
~ Genesis 9:11-16,

He Gives Us Parables

“Jesus kinda fools around and gives you parables.
He doesn’t oftentimes say exactly what He means.
But, in Matthew 25, He’s very, very clear.
And He delineates what it takes to get into the Kingdom of Heaven
very, very clearly. And He says how you treat the least among us,
the least of our brothers, that’s how you treat Him.”

Her Greatest Beauty Secret

“My greatest beauty secret is being happy with myself.
I don’t use special creams or treatments – I’ll use a little bit of everything.

is to do with how you feel about yourself and your life.
Happiness is the greatest beauty secret.”

A Big Reason for My Life

“People in love look into each other’s souls,
and it is that feeling that I try to capture when I sing.

‘Thank you.’ I thank them. It’s a marriage.”
