As an established model in Chicago, Amy Joob traveled around the United States and Canada as a team captain for Porsche Cars North America and as a fitness model and product specialist for MET-Rx. She also did an array of jobs in print, runway, bridal, informal modeling, and trade shows.
As she pursued her modeling career, Amy quickly learned that some people didn’t believe that model and Christian belonged in the same sentence. She says, “I had to let go of my people-pleasing habits when I became a model, because a couple of Christian friends actively disapproved of my career choice. They wrote to me and told me that I was making a big mistake. They warned me not to go into modeling or acting, because it might ruin my life and marriage. I might fall away from God completely.
“What they didn’t understand was that my underlying purpose in entering the industry was to be Christ’s ambassador. I had become a pioneer, and together with God, I was blazing a trail in the modeling world. When I stepped into uncharted territory, He met me there every time. And with each step of faith, He honored me with new opportunities.”
Model Behavior is Amy’s testament of faith that where God leads, He goes before. She encourages her readers with three main points: First, as you step into the purpose God has for you, you don’t have to be perfect—He will prepare you. Second, you don’t have to fear being poor or going into poverty—He will provide for you. And third, you don’t have to fear pain or harm as you follow your destiny—He will protect you.
Amy’s hope is that Model Behavior will inspire others to think outside the box and to boldly use the unique gifts God has given them, even when those gifts lead to unconventional careers.
