What sort of man can win the heart of a supermodel? Earlier this year we published a story about model Kylie Bisutti. She had just announced her decision to leave Victoria’s Secret modeling out of respect for her husband and her faith. Later we sent Kylie some questions about her husband. Kylie was kind enough to answer our questions. We think her answers are really cool. Thanks so much, Kylie, for answering us and for your testimony!
Question: Kylie, you say that when you met your future husband it was love at first sight. But as you got to know him, what sort of things attracted you to him?
Kylie: His heart for the Lord and his heart for others. He was so caring, so humble, and he was so respectful of me!
Question: Tell me more about him. What does he do for a living?
Kylie: Mike works for a telecommunications and home services company.
Question: What was his background before you met him?
Kylie: Mike was raised Christian and he attended college in southern California. He is Italian and a wonderful cook as well as an athlete. He played and coached volleyball when he was younger!
Question: How did he win you over?
Kylie: I was won over the night I met him! His sweet heart and caring personality caught my eye.
Question: What sort of things did a girl like you look for in a good husband? Did you have anything in mind before you met him?
Kylie: Yes, the main thing I looked for was a christian guy who truly live his life in a biblical way for the Lord. Other than that I desired to find a man who was loyal and did not look at other women but only had a desire for me and I definitely found that guy 🙂
Question: You seem to have a very kind and loving personality. Do you find that telling him the good things you see in him helps him?
Kylie: I definitely do! As a wife I’m called to be his helpmate. His cheerleader. I’m supposed to build him up and telling him all of the great things about him makes him feel like he can conquer anything!
Question: Do you think he was sometimes overwhelmed by your success in the modeling world?
Kylie: I think he was saddened by the decisions I made to attain success. He just prayed for me though and it payed off! God answered his prayers 🙂
Question: Do you have any special things that you would recommend to girls who are looking for “Mr. Right”?
Kylie: Yes, wait on God! He knows who he has in mind for you, be prayerful about it. That he brings you the right guy.
Question: What qualities should they look for in a man?
Kylie: Look for someone who is a believer and who will love God more than anything or anyone.
Question: How can they send the right message about the type of guy they are looking for?
Kylie: Read the Bible and strive to be the kind of woman that the Bible speaks of. Dress modestly. Always be yourself. Do try to win over a man by wearing certain clothes or act a certain way. You want a man who loves you for your heart not your face.
Question: What sort of things do you do together as a couple? What sort of ways do you have fun?
Kylie: Mike and I do everything together! We read together, play boardgames and cards. We worship together and cook together.
Question: What ways do you share your faith?
Kylie: Mike and I talk about everything. We pray together daily and we always make sure we are accountable to each other!
Question: Do you have any plans for the future as a couple? Are you hoping to have children? Any idea how many you would like?
Kylie: I’m happy with whatever God has planned for me! If he wants me to have one child I’m fine with that an if he wants me to have 6 kids I’ll be fine with that as well 🙂
“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ loved the church and handed himself over for her…” (Ephesians 5: 25)
“When the Lord God brought the woman to the man, the man said, “This one at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. This one will be called ‘woman’ for out of ‘her man’ this one has been taken.” That is why a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife, and two of them become one body.” (Genesis 3: 22-24)
They answered, “Let us call the girl and see what she herself has to say about it.” So they called Rebekah and asked her, “Do you wish to go with this man?” She answered, “I do.” ….Then Isaac took Rebekah into his tent; he married her, and thus she became his wife. In his love for her Isaac found solace after the death of his mother Sarah. (Genesis 24: 57-58, 67)
When one finds a worthy wife, her value is beyond pearls. Her husband, entrusting his heart to her, has an unfailing prize. (Proverbs 31: 10-11)
God who created man out of love also calls him to love. (This is) the fundamental and innate vocation of every human being. For man is created in the image and likeness of God who is himself love. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1604)
Since God created them man and woman, their mutual love becomes an image of the absolute and unfailing love with which God loves man. It is good, very good, in the Creator’s eyes.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1604)
Holy Scripture affirms that man and woman were created for one another: “It is not good that the man should be alone.” The woman, “flesh of his flesh,” i.e., his counterpart, his equal, his nearest in all things, is given to him by God as a “helpmate”; she thus represents God from whom comes our help. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1605)
In his mercy God has not forsaken sinful man… After the fall, marriage helps to overcome self-absorption, egoism, pursuit of one’s own pleasure, and to open oneself to the other, to mutual aid and to self-giving. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 1609)
The Lord calls many people to marriage, in which a man and a woman, in becoming one flesh, find fulfillment in a profound life of communion. It is a project for true love which is daily renewed and deepened by sharing joys and sorrows, one marked by complete self-giving.
(Pope Benedict XVI, Vigil with young people, August 20, 2011)
Dear friends, build your own house on rock, just like the person who “dug deeply”. Try each day to follow Christ’s word. Listen to him as a true friend with whom you can share your path in life. With him at your side you will find courage and hope to face difficulties and problems…
(Pope Benedict XVI, Message for World Youth Day, August 2011)
