UNITED + TRU
UNITED+TRU is a movement of women and girls who are redefining beauty. We are about every size, age, background and culture living out their God-given beauty and potential to walk confidently in who they were made to be. We believe every woman is wired to display the unique beauty of God. With all of the pressures out there to be perfect, it’s time to redefine what beauty really is.
We come together for a life-changing night of empowering panel speakers, shopping with local artists/vendors, valuable giveaways and a designer fashion show. It gets better- UNITED + TRU is committed to giving a portion of our ticket and sponsor proceeds away to help human trafficking victims around the world. We have teamed up with organizations such as A21/norfolk and Safe House Project to help rescue and restore those who are victims of human trafficking.
A Quote from the Fashion Show
“I love what UNITED +TRU stands for. It’s all about embracing who God created us to be as women-no matter what shape or size, no matter the color of our skin or our hair color, no matter our talents or IQ. We are all worthy because we are His. God made each one of us perfectly in His image and we are truly free when we embrace that truth. That’s the experience of U+TRU, incredible women of faith gathering as One community to celebrate our unique differences and our similarities. It’s praying with our sisters and cheering them on, celebrating one another and embracing who God created us to be. All the proceeds from this fashion event go towards fighting the war on human trafficking. It was a very special event and I was honored to be a role model in the show and support U+TRU and their mission to celebrate women!”

Fear: The Ultimate Solution
I used to have nightly panic attacks. In the shadows, small worries became giant monsters. When I joined Jesus, He fought for me… and He taught me how to fight for myself and others. I’ve yet to master fear’s ultimate solution (fearing God)… but I’m getting closer. Because fearing God leaves no room to fear anything else. Read More…
To be real here, I am not the best at walking “gracefully”. So, when I was asked to be a role model for the Girls United + Free Fashion show, my first reaction was, “YES! I would love to be a part of that!” Quickly followed by my second reaction of, “why in the world did I sign up for this, I can barely walk in flats let alone heels?!?” Read More…
What Is Beauty & How Do You Get It?
