Today, the First Lady was asked to address the participants of Girls State 2011 at the state Capitol. The girls crowded into the basement auditorium to hear her speak and listened attentively as she shared her story. Mrs. Bentley spoke on the importance of God in her life and how He guides each step she takes. She took them through hardships on the campaign and told them the scriptures that helped encourage her through the process. She admitted that the road had been discouraging. She mentioned that friends tried to talk the Governor out of running and that the media was critical. However they pressed on and in the end, Dr. Robert Bentley was elected to lead the state of Alabama.
Mrs. Bentley stood by his side and relied on strength from God. She did not waver in her faith and did not give up on her husband no matter the circumstance. She believed in him and showed everyone across the state her true character. She is a woman of God and a woman of conviction. With God's help and alongside her husband, she will provide leadership to Alabama.
