"When I was first introduced to IB, Roberta showed me such a wonderful friendship I had not seen in a long time. We meet people from all walks of life, but do we ever really SEE them? Roberta has a dream, a dream of showing the world how special and beautiful a woman's heart can and will be through Jesus. She sees more than the broken parts which we often force our focus and encourages us as women to use our voice, which is strengthened by the trials in our life, to uplift others. I have been honored by the women I've met and the new friendships which have been made through IB. We are not perfect, we were once broken vessels that have healed, maybe still healing, but we strive to show the world that Jesus still is in control and He will always be constant in the lives of those who want His help, love and mercy! IB is one of those special programs which not only inspires but also honors women who are still up for fighting for what is right and Christ like in this dying world. I'm very proud to know Roberta and participate in her dream of Integrity Beauty!"
