Not just a "beauty pageant"!

National American we come!

Ashley and Aly were both selected to be finalists in our Iowa state National American Miss Pageant- in the Pre-Teen division. They are really excited! It is not an ordinary "beauty pageant." NAM focuses on "poise, self-confidence, and valuable communication skills." They also emphasize community service. Their mission is "dedicated to celebrating America’s greatness and encouraging its future leaders." Also, in their age division, make-up is not allowed. And, the only swimsuit needed will be the one to swim in the hotel pool!

Go here to learn more about this awesome program.

Both girls see this as an opportunity to share their faith and be "lights" shining for God. Ashley is planning to sing "In Christ Alone."

As part of the program, Ashely and Aly need to find donors to raise the individual sponsor fee. No donation is too small or too large! :) If you would like to help them, you may make a donation conveniently online- it only takes a minute! They have page here with more information.

The state finals are July 23 and 24 in Waterloo, IA. If you are free we'd love to see you!

We really appreciate your support. Prayer support is very much appreciated! Thanks so much!

Again, visit NAM for more details.
