A Renewed Commitment to the Work

Although Campbell didn’t advance beyond the finals, she is deeply grateful for the experience and connecting with 112 other Remarkable Women! She remains driven by her commitment to fulfill God’s will, as inspired by Proverb 31.

“What drives me is God’s command in Proverbs 31:8-9 to ‘speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute’,” said Campbell. “When you give so much you become depleted – CW 39 and Nexstar’s “Remarkable Woman” award and recognition provides fuel for people like me and help us continue the work to help others.”
