Ky. minister, former model leads healthy seminars


LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — As a minister of the Monterey Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Owen County in northern Kentucky, Sarah Renfro preaches about the love of God.

As a former model, she also advocates against unrealistic expectations of women's bodies.

Renfro became a model after being spotted at a Lexington talent search.

She signed a contract with the Elite modeling agency and appeared in Seventeen magazine. She was a third runner-up in the Elite Look of the Year modeling contest.

By the time she was 21, Renfro decided to take her life in another direction. She returned home and earned degrees from the University of Kentucky and Lexington Theological Seminary.

Renfro offers body-image workshops, available for youth and women's groups.
