A Riveting and Powerful Memoir of the transformation and metamorphosis of a young girl living the “glamorous life” of a model and a stripper, whose life de-railed and de-escalated to a rapid halt! It is the story of a Divine Appointment and a Divine Rescue from the Sex Industry. Walking in True Freedom, only found in God, she returned and Founded The Lion’s Beauty Queens, Inc., a ministry reaching out to women in the Sex Industry.

As a child Dana endured the death of a parent, father in prison, dysfunctional environment of alcoholism and drugs, poverty, abuse, neglect, and was sexually abused by age 8. A troubled teenage rebellion followed.

As Dana pursued high hopes in a modeling career, she was trafficked through a local tanning salon, into exotic dancing in strip clubs at age 17. Her first marriage to a male stripper/drug dealer ended with him at the gates of a prison. Living in lies, a world of illusion, in pain, struggling, and single parenting became her personal hell.

In January of 1994 she felt the words “Love has taken over me – I have been set FREE”! She then graduated college with her BSN and RN Degree, married a youth Pastor of 14 years, and birthed her ministry and nonprofit, The Lion’s Beauty Queens, Inc. Currently LBQ is reaching out to 19 strip clubs monthly throughout Kansas City, MO, KS and California.

Surrendered Showgirl…from Stripper to Saint reveals how for some people life can be a set up, creating the perfect victim. It is an absorbing journey through overwhelming circumstances, the darkness of the sex industry, and resulting in the marvelous revelation of how God redeems and restores. It shows the way of escape, how to become “New” again, be made whole and live in total freedom!


This is a passionate story of turmoil and tragedy and a relentless pursuit of HIS Glory and Grace!

Statement of Faith

We believe that the Holy Bible is the Infallible Word of God, Truth, and written by Divine Inspiration. We believe that God has revealed Himself to man throughout the Scriptures. The Bible is a book of Divine instruction.
We believe that there is Only One true and living God. He exists and is revealed as One in Three persons, The Holy Trinity being the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
He is Fatherly in character toward all men. He is All-Powerful, All- Knowing, Omnipresent, Omnipotent, and Sovereign.
Jesus Christ is the Eternal Son of God. We believe He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He was crucified, willingly shedding His blood for man’s redemption and for the forgiveness of sins to all who receive the sacrifice and accept Him as personal Lord and Savior. He was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day He rose from the dead with a glorified body, appeared to His disciples, ascended to heaven, and is now exalted and seated at the right hand of God the Father where He is the One Mediator, bridging reconciliation between God and man-kind. He will return in power, authority and glory to judge the world and to complete His redemptive mission. We believe in the rapture of the church. He now dwells in all believers as the living and ever-present Lord.
We believe that man was created and formed in the image of God by a unique act of God Himself. Man was created pure and innocent, with a free choice. By man’s choice, sin entered the human race. Thus, the fall came by choosing to follow the temptation of Satan. The redemption of man comes through receiving Christ as a free gift and believing in one’s heart that Jesus died for sins through shedding of His own blood, and receiving and accepting the free gift of Salvation offered to all – “whosoever will”.
We believe in the new birth as a work of God’s grace whereby believers become new creations in Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart transformed by the Holy Spirit through conviction of sin, to which the sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The Church is the united Body of Christ in covenant. It consists of all true believers who are associated together by their faith and fellowship of the gospel. The various local churches are smaller entities of the universal body of true believers. The church operates under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and He raises up Pastors, and Leadership. The Pastors are the shepherds of the individual flocks.
We believe in the Lord’s Supper as a symbolic act of obedience whereby believers in the Body of Christ remember the death of Christ by partaking of bread and fruit of the vine.
We believe that believers should give a tithe, or a tenth, of their total income to the local Church, Body of Christ of which they are a part.
