Last month, I got to attend a one-day conference for teen girls and women. The keynote speaker for the day was Kylie Bisutti, a former Victoria’s Secret model. Kylie left the modeling world to honor both her faith and her husband. Now she travels the country sharing her story with young girls, encouraging them to make the right choices and put their faith first.
Kylie has an amazing testimony, and she’s put it all into her book, I’m No Angel: From Victoria’s Secret Model to Role Model. That book is free today on Amazon.
In December 2011, 21-year-old Victoria’s Secret model Kylie Bisutti stunned the fashion industry when she chose faith over fame and fortune and made the switch from supermodel to role model.
In I’m No Angel, Kylie shares her story–from her early years struggling to make it big in the cut-throat world of modeling, her “big break” winning the Victoria’s Secret Runway Angel competition, and the disillusionment and spiritual warfare that followed, to the moment she realized that she could no longer reconcile her career with her Christian beliefs, surrendered her life to God, said goodbye to the runway, and dedicated her life to preaching a message of modesty and inner beauty.
Along the way, Kylie talks about her personal struggles with inadequacy, low self-esteem, and her near-constant quest for approval in a world where you can never be thin enough, pretty enough, or sexy enough. She helps readers understand that true beauty lies within and that real fulfillment comes from knowing, loving, and serving Christ.
If you’re a mama of girls – or in a mentoring relationship with girls – this is a good read. The girls at the event really connected with what Kylie shared with them.
Remember, you don’t have to have a Kindle to read Kindle eBooks. You can read them on your computer, iPhone, BlackBerry, iPad, Droid, or Windows 7 phone.
Amazon changes prices quickly, so if you want this free book, be sure to grab it now. I haven’t read this book, so I’m not personally recommending it. I just wanted to let you know that it was available for free.
