The annual Miss Universe pageant is one that truly never gets old. Worldwide, spectators follow the competition to see who will graduate from representing their country to representing the world.

Last year at the end of November, fans watched as Miss South Africa, Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, was crowned Miss Universe.

Fans watched as Miss Universe continued to grow into a role model for young women everywhere. Her fame grew even more so as Tim Tebow fans began to realize that the two public figures may be dating.

Tebow, being a private man, eventually confirmed this after extended rumors of the perfect romance that fans clearly loved.

“She is a really special girl and I am very lucky and blessed for her coming into my life,” Tebow said.

Growing more public with their relationship, it was also rumored that Tebow’s family was going to meet Nel-Peters’ family after dating for some time. This was also confirmed when Tebow’s parents decided to celebrate their 47th wedding anniversary by meeting Tebow’s girlfriend’s parents!

Recently, Nel-Peters, who met Tebow at his “Night to Shine” event that she attended because of her special needs sister, has grown into her own charity work and testament of faith.

Evidently, as Nel-Peters has shared through her Instagram page, she is not only Miss Universe but is also a God-fearing woman.

She’s expressed her views and beliefs through little posts, such as recognizing the true meaning of Easter:

But more recently, she has gotten involved in the charity organization God’s Love We Deliver, which is a non-profit organization that cooks and delivers nutritious food to people with illnesses in the Manhattan, New York, area.

Even more recently, just a few days ago, as viewers watched her final walk as Miss Universe. As the final three contestants were asked the final question, Miss Philippines’ answer was the one that solidified her victory, according to USA Today.

As Nel-Peters gave her crown over to Catriona Gray, Nel-Peters was able to take her final walk and give her final comments regarding her experience as Miss Universe.

“First, all glory goes to my Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ,” Nel-Peters said.

This God-fearing woman, in front of the entire world, credited her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for her experience and victories. What a strong testament to God’s provision and grace. What better way to use that platform than to glorify God to all watching!
