A Triumph of the Spirit
Author Norma Joyce Dougherty shares how God led a poor, young farm girl from Prince Edward Island, Canada to live out a real-life fairy tale on the world stage. “I became a world traveller and overnight success as Miss Dominion of Canada and contestant in the Miss World, Miss Universe, Queen of the Pacific and semi-finalist in Miss International. I found fame and fortune,” she explains, “but I lost my home, my self and a sense of belonging. It took many years to find ‘me’ again.” Women of every age, every stage and every face will relate with her “identity crisis” ~ a crisis that is all too common in this post-modern era as women search for authentic validation. Teen girls will be particularly inspired by her struggle to live by the motto: “Beauty is as beauty does.”
Norma Joyce recounts her story in a lively “fairy-tale” theme as she shares her long journey from a world where lies and deception prevail to one where the truth of Jesus Christ is her power source, her light, her radiance, her beauty, her peace, her joy and her triumph.
