TIW Today’s International Woman

Stepping into theFuture

JULY 11-15, 2018 SPARTANBURG, SC


KATHY’S BOUTIQUE 18 N Broadway, Geneva, OH 44041 (440) 466-2661


Today’s International Woman is more than a pageant! We are women on a mission! We’re changing lives “one crown at a time”, serving God and people with honor and compassion. We’re about missions of kindness and community service to every man, women and child. We are what real beauty is all about; beauty that emanates from the heart with intelligency, empowerment, high standards, and love as our guide. We’re taking missions of commuity service within our pageant structure to people all across the globe. In doing so, we aim not only to spread awareness of injustice, disease, and poverty - but to empower all people groups affected by these tragedies with hope, courage and practical help.


The Prayer of Jabez Jebez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.� And God granted his request. 1 Chronicles 4:10, (INIV)


Director’s Welcome Dear Queens, Contestants, Staff, Family and Friends:

Welcome to our pageant week, celebrating seven amazing years! The number seven is one of the most significant Biblical Numbers, as it is the number of spiritual perfection. Seven is also the number stamped on every work of The Lord. Though we have had a few challenges along the way, together we have overcome and continue to soar like eagles, flying high above the rest! With that being said, I declare this is our Year-of-Redemption! Our queens and contestants have been out in their communities making a difference. From anti-bullying, to cancer awareness, to homelessness and addiction-help, to literacy and education advocacy, our queens’ hard-work and efforts are making positive changes in the lives of those they touch. Consequently, I am so proud to consider each of you a member of this rhinestone family! New this year: I am proud to announce that for the first time in TIW History, we are awarding two education scholarships to current students & those aspiring continue their education or pursue career advancement. Some amazing donors and sponsors have made these scholarship opportunities possible, and I thank each of you for your altruism! This week will consist of fun, family, FOOD (my favorite), and entertainment. We will be fellowshipping and (of course) engaging in friendly competition. The week will end in God’s House with the blessing of the 2018 Crowns & Titleholders, as always giving Him praise and honor for all His work in our daily lives! Please remember to visit the incredible vendors for last minute gifts and needs. They are here to make your visit to South Carolina more enjoyable by allowing you to take home goodies without venturing too far away. I want to personally thank each of you for your love and support. Without you, this week would not be possible! Royal Regards! Jera Lynn Anders, CEO & Founder Today’s International Woman Pageant

Stepping into the with Scholarships Future Today’s International Woman proudly presents our Educational Scholarship Program to Teens and Miss for their future college educational expenses. We have donors and sponsors that help make this happen. This year, Jaguar of Greenville is sponsoring one of our scholarships! We also give life scholarships to ladies that are out of college, and may have a career change or a life change going on. These are awarded immediately at the pageant. Each applicant has to complete an essay, combined with their GPA and pageant interview scores, to determine the winners for any of these scholarships. This is a great opportunity for ladies to learn how to formally tell their “story” and begin or continue helping others. We value all of our contestants, and hope one day we can award scholarships to ALL that apply!
