(Fox News) At age 18, Kathy Ireland was a lonely up-and-coming model living in an old French apartment at the end of a dark hallway nicknamed “the dungeon” with her housemates.
But it was during this time that the now entrepreneur developed a new relationship with God.
“I was living in Paris and it was really a hard time,” the 58-year-old told Fox News. “I know it might sound glamorous, but I was alone modeling. It wasn’t my plan, but I recognized it as an opportunity. I could save money for college or start a business. I just barely finished high school and I had no technology or distractions.”
During one night in 1981, the former cover girl was going through her suitcase when she discovered that her mom had secretly packed a Bible for her.
