Bree Boyce Marsh chooses JOY! My buddy and Miss South Carolina “sistah” made a decision several years ago that changed her life in a dramatic way.
It is Miss South Carolina week and in honor of this exciting event and the theme of my new book, “Rhinestones on My Flip-Flops,” I thought of Bree Boyce Marsh. Bree possesses many of the same qualities I highlight in a chapter in my book entitled, “Fearless and Fabulous Esther.” Like queen Esther, Bree is brave, bold and beautiful. But it did not start out that way.
Bree was 17 years old and weighed in at 234. She was unhappy and traveling down a road with an unhealthy end. She made a dramatic decision. Bree began an extensive fitness program that turned this young woman into a new person. She lost 114 lbs. and went from a size 18 to a size 4. You see, Bree chose a challenging path but her journey led to extravagant JOY.
With her weight loss, Bree set another goal—competing in the Miss South Carolina Pageant. Oh, yes! On July 2, 2011 Bree Boyce was crowned Miss South Carolina. Then she was off Las Vegas to compete for one of the most coveted titles of all, Miss America. Bree was honored to be named in the TOP TEN; an honor that very few women will achieve.

Here is the point that I share in my book,“Rhinestones on my Flip-Flops.”We all have choices in life; we can choose to be a flop, or flip our lives to find extravagant JOY! But it takes prayer, time and hard work. I love the drive and determination Bree lives and what compels others to challenge themselves to a higher purpose. You better believe that Bree is a fighter and no matter what path she chooses in life, she will find victory.
The most wonderful quality Bree possesses is that she is down-to-earth; her beauty is from the inside out. I had the privilege of watching her walk down another “runway/aisle” and gain a new title—Mrs. Andrew Marsh.
Just like Bree, you can CHOOSE Joy in the midst of life’s challenges and mess-up! Pass it on; you know who needs to read this!
