Heather Avis, author of The Lucky Few: Finding God's Best in the Most Unlikely Places, was kind enough to take time away from her busy schedule (including three adorable kids!) to chat with the Milk & Honey Magazine.
What's the book about, you ask? Heather explains it perfectly:
If you think class-act men of faith and character don't exist - let me prove you wrong. Sam Eaton, the founder of Recklessly Alive, once struggled with depression but soon handed his life over to Christ. Since, he's become a beacon of light for young people around the world, encouraging them to live fully alive knowing each day is a gift. He's turned a mess into a message, and he encourages others to share their stories, too!
Let me present to you, Sam Eaton!
Former Victorias Secret and Maxim model Nicole Weider traded in her lifestyle in the modeling world for the VictORIOUS Secret of Jesus Christ. Having started her full-time modeling career at a mere 16, she was engulfed in the fashion world for years. Having met countless celebrities and mingled with Hollywood's A-list, she knew there was something off... something missing. As she was shooting a campaign one afternoon for Maxim, it hit her: this life of "glamour" was all merely smoke and mirrors.
Most of us wouldn’t consider chatting with Tyra Banks, Christina Ricci, Chad Michael Murray, or Isabela Moner to be “work”, but for Molly Argue, it comes with the job description. As a TV host for Young Hollywood, Molly can have as many as three celebrity interviews a day — and she’s definitely not complaining. This bright, passionate, and curious gal loves what she does, and her enthusiasm for her work is just as evident offscreen as it is on. Chances are, you’ll never see her without a smile on her face and a question on her lips.
There are few things in this world that can put a smile on a little girls face like meeting a princess. Kylee Lauren, New York City based founder of A Moment of Magic (formerly known as the Princess Project), knew she could do just that.
This program equips young women to volunteer at children’s hospitals and schools dressed as some of the world's most popular princesses.
It was a warm, sunny afternoon in Malibu, California. I was sitting at Alumni Park, the fairytale-esque "front yard" of Pepperdine University, close enough to the Pacific Ocean that you could feel the cool breeze of the waves. It was the annual Wonderfully Made Pepperdine conference, and I was sitting on a checkered blanket with a few of my girlfriends as we listened to inspiring women share their life stories on the stage.
I vividly remember driving to Case High School every morning as a budding freshman, my mom in the drivers seat and my then-6th grade brother playing his handheld video game in the backseat. High school is an unpredictable time for a 14-year-old; a time of overcoming insecurity, finding yourself, and wondering if that cute boy from math class will finally ask you to homecoming. One thing was stable, however, and that was my drive to school. I'd eat my banana, finish my makeup, and listen to my favorite radio show on 103.7 KISS FM, based in Milwaukee.
There's no question whether the legendary opera singer Kara Smoot is beautiful - she's stunning. Her voice, if you can believe it, is even more glorious. Kara has her bachelors from Pepperdine University and her masters from the University of Santa Barbara, both prestigious schools in the music realm. Kara now works as a professional opera singer all over the world. If you're interested in the opera scene, you are so welcome for this lovely interview. Meet Kara Smoot!
22-year-old Torunn Lee Stuen is the founder of the Beyoutiful Blog, an online fashion platform! Torunn, known among her friends as Tori or T, is drop dead gorgeous, but her appeal doesn't stop there. She is also extremely smart (a full-time student living in Atlanta studying Biomedical Engineering) and a Christian!
Milk and Honey Magazine was lucky enough to chat with the angelic Tori. Enjoy!
I met Abbey Holden on the first day of fourth grade, and even then, I knew there was something special about her. She’s gorgeous, kind, personable, and, as evidenced by the pics below, uber talented. Even as a kid, Abbey had a clear gift for art, so it should come as no surprise to learn that she studied it further in college and became a print designer for Lilly Pulitzer (!!!) after graduating.
