So, you know how I'm practically famous because I know people that are famous? (I like to pretend sometimes.)
Anyway, it totally worked in my favor last night! I asked the current Miss Idaho, Elise Davis, to come and speak to our Young Women. She did an AMAZING job. She talked about the pageant, and the reality show leading up to that. She went through the Young Women values and talked about how each one helped her in her experiences at Miss America.
She told us how Clinton Kelly, from TLC's What Not to Wear, came up to her after the evening gown competition, and told her she looked like Grace Kelly! (Now I'm only two degrees away from Clinton Kelly!) She talked about how when you're modest, people see you, not what you shouldn't be showing. Elise mentioned how faith and divine nature helped her realize that she was enough, and that it didn't matter what the judges thought about her, but what she thought about herself.
Elise did such an awesome job, and the girls and I loved having her for the night. She sang her competition piece for us, she answered the craziest questions, and she even let us wear her crown and take pictures.
Thanks a million billion, Elise!
