I totally agree (100%) with the answer given. I just wanted to point out a couple of things. Yes, we should offer our bodies as a daily living sacrifice to Christ---in all we do. Which means every job, not just modeling. Personally, I have been a professional model for the last 15 years. I will admit that when I first started in NYC, I was swept up in some of the glamor. I know deep in my heart that our living God has put me in this industry. I literally have a couple hundred stories to prove it. He works in ALL things according to His will and purpose for His Glory! 

He has shown me so much growth through working in this industry. I have been ministered to, and have carried the gospel all across this nation as well as other countries. He comes first in my work and in my life. By the way, I never sought this work out in the first place (I wouldn't recommend). I was sought after. I was a believer when I decided to engage. I guess you could say that the Truth was with me. Did I make mistakes? Of course. I make them every day just sitting around the house. But, our faithful God is never done with us. His Spirit is always directing us to learn His righteous ways. Commit your ways to His ways, and your plans will succeed! Proverbs 16:3
In Christ's Love,
