Tuesday Morning Kylie Bisutti, former Victoria Secret Model, was in New York City on Fox and Friends doing this.
And Tuesday evening she was in Ohio at a Starbucks, doing this!!!
Kylie graciously gave of her time, to share her story with me and my 2 friends – Diana and Clare (Peak 313).
We chatted for nearly 2 hours and I wish I could share every last detail with you – but it was not an interview (although my rapid fire questions may have felt like it was to her lol!!! This girl is fascinating!). It was truly just a casual meeting of sisters in Christ exchanging God stories!
Kylie has a new website at KylieBisutti.com where she has shared both her testimony and heart. She writes there:
“I Quit Being A Victoria’s Secret Model To Become a Proverbs 31 Wife
I started my modeling career at the very young age of 14. It was always my dream to become a super model and to be a Victoria’s Secret model was my ultimate goal in life. I felt like I was born to walk the runway and at the age of 19 I achieved that goal. I walked in my first Victoria’s Secret runway show…
I selfishly desired the attention that I was getting and I gave in to worldly ways… UNTIL I had a very gracious and convicting AWAKENING! The Lord knocked me off my feet and showed me where to find true happiness and self worth. How to be truly beautiful (which has NOTHING to do with external beauty) and most importantly how to truly live a life for Him and His glory and not my own. As I studied the word more, I desired to be more Christ like in the way that I was living. I wanted to be a better example to young women. I wanted to be the wife that God made me to be and the one my husband deserved. (we were recently married before the whole Victoria’s Secret thing happened) I wanted to be honoring to the Lord in all things. So, I stopped modeling lingerie, and skimpy bathing suits. I told myself I would never be on a men’s magazine again, and I decided to be more modest in the way that I dressed.” ~Source Link
OH ya – I like this girl! She has my heart!
And I have to wonder…is there something that God has been convicting you of? Maybe there is something you are doing that you love BUT you know God is not pleased with. Maybe it feels like the sacrifice would be too high to quit. Kylie had reached the epitome of modeling but when God convicted her, she obeyed her convictions, took a leap of faith and sacrificed it all. She did not know what God would have around the next corner for her but she trusted and went forward. And she testifies to the peace she has on the other side.
Her story inspires me to remember that all the world offers is empty and that we serve a worthy Savior! He is worthy of sacrificing all!
Clare just put up a more detailed post about our meeting with Kylie here: http://peak313.com/featured/my-meeting-with-ex-victoria-secret-model-kylie-bisutti/
