In 1977, Kelli McGonagill (Finglass) sold her entire Barbie collection at the annual Hide-a-Way Lake community garage sale commanding a whopping fifty cents per Barbie. When her mother, Cecile, found out Kelli sold her entire childhood collection, she cried. Cecile managed to protect one Barbie casualty by having a friend buy it and then return it to her – ‘Malibu Barbie’. Finglass’ love for Barbies, however, never really waned. After becoming director of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, she immediately pursued business opportunities that made sense. In 1993, she

Dear 7 year old Kat, You may not realize it now, but what you are going through is needed. I know you may be sad because you cannot live with mommy anymore but moving into Oma (grandma) and Papooh’s (grandpa) house will be the best thing that's ever happened to you. Mommy is working more jobs, so you can say, “YES!” to all the opportunities this world will throw your way. Don’t grow up too fast, slow down and have fun where you are. Oma and Papooh love raising

Dear Younger Self,   I hope that you wake up every day knowing just how amazing you are! No, seriously amazing! You will accomplish so much in a short period. Life will not always be kind, but you will persevere and conquer every obstacle that you encounter.

KayDianna, If you only knew the greatness inside of you. For you are fearfully and wonderfully made. Embrace who God created you to be. Do not be afraid to be 100% YOU!  Embrace your loud obnoxious laugh, your unique name, and those beautiful natural curls that He gave you. Don’t worry so much about what people say about you. What God has meant for you is for you, and no one can take that away. DCC KayDianna  

  Dear Little Tyra, I want you to know everything is going to be ok. Life is full of ups and downs, and we are on this roller coaster together sis. You are going to go through things in life where it feels like the world is collapsing around you and you feel like giving up, but just remember, the life you were given is so special and unique to you. God will never let you face a battle alone and He wouldn’t place a challenge in front of you

Dear Younger Chandi, I know times are uncertain right now and you feel like you are a small fish in a big pond but keep your head up. I know you have already had ups and downs in your life, but you will overcome everything that life throws at you. Soon, you will be proud of the strong, independent young woman you have become. Right now, you are a young girl in a very big world. You are in ballet, dancing your little heart out. It is your

Dear Ashlee, Who knew that your natural tendency to lead the group out for dance battles at recess, talent shows, and all things entertainment would be the first chapter? Who knew that you would be who I think about whenever I start to doubt myself and my abilities? Three year old Ashlee loved to be with the big kids, praise dancing down the Baptist church aisles, with so much conviction. Who knew that the same three year old would make the choice to confess Christ and be baptized? You

I asked Shannon what it was like cheering with Kelli and she responded that she was a wonderful leader and an excellent veteran to follow. She has a photo of Kelli napping on
