There are times that I have felt a love, appreciation, and thankfulness far greater than I have ever felt in church or in “Christian circles”.  I pray that this ministry breaks down barriers and attitudes of religiosity and judgmental spirits and is a true example of “carrying our cross”.-(SURRENDERED SHOWGIRL)


We are so very THANKFUL for this ministry that has been entrusted to us by the Lord! I’m thankful every day for the passionate & committed women who dedicate so much time and effort to The Lion’s Beauty Queens Ministry!! Without each of you, I could not be leading this ministry with Excellence. I’m so thankful for All 5 LBQ Teams serving throughout the “Heartland of the Midwest”. We ARE the “Heart of America”!!! As well so very gracious for my team in San Diego~you make my travels easy & prepare the way for me to do all that is needed there with confidence! I’m so very thankful for every Club door that has opened for our ministry in 10 cities: Kansas City, Olathe, Springhill, Bashor, Lawrence, Topeka, Warrensburg, Junction City, Salina, & Oceanside, California!! As well we are Blessed and Thankful for our chapter ministry of LBQManhattan & team there! Every month we stand amazed and in awe of all the incredible works that continually happen. We know we are just messengers and that it is ALL HIM! Thankful for the courage that was granted to step out on this journey 3 & 1/2 years ago and so blessed to see the priceless harvest. It is a privilege to have this unique opportunity to walk out the “Real Love” of God.
