1. MY FAITH
Accepting Jesus into my heart has been the biggest blessing of my life because without that, nothing else would have happened.
2. MY CHILDREN
They ground me. They give me selfless purpose. Being a celebrity, you can become so self-centered. Everyone's doing things for you. But as a mom, you serve your children.
3. MY HUSBAND
I would be completely and utterly lost without Jay. He's so smart, successful, accomplished and fun. And he's an amazing dancer!
4. MY STEP-CHILDREN
I see them in exactly the same light as my own children. When we have my three children and Jay's four all together, it's incredible. All seven are our children, and we are a family.
5. MY FRIENDS
They're just an incredible group of ladies. I want to do a Real Housewives of Birmingham! But we would love each other and not fight.
I love to play tennis, softball, basketball, volleyball, speed walking-anything I can do to move my body and to compete, I love it. I am so grateful for good health so I can do all those things.
It is such a stress reliever. I love to cook for the people I love. The kitchen is definitely the center of our house.
