THE BACHELOR’s Madison Prewett Shares the Message God Laid on Her Heart

By Movieguide® Contributor

THE BACHELOR star Madison Prewett’s new book, “Made For This Moment,” addresses how we can find confidence in ourselves.

Prewett knows all about trying to stay confident in tough situations. 

“I was able to be on a show with 30 beautiful girls who had everything going for them,” Prewett said of time on THE BACHELOR. “I mean the best of the best, right? And I was able to stay so true to myself and be so confident because I knew who I was and it wasn’t about, ‘Oh, they have this and I don’t have this’ or anything like that. It was ‘This is who God’s called me to be. Therefore, I want the light in me to be what people see. I want God’s spirit in me to be what attracts them and draws them in.’”

She continued, “For me, my confidence is truly dependent on you knowing what God has put inside of me, and what I know I have to give. I’ve noticed that the most confident people in the entire world are those who realize that this life is so much bigger than them. It’s not about them, but what they give back to those around them. And for me, the moments that I’ve been the most confident, are when I’ve been the closest to Jesus, and when I’ve made a difference for someone around me.”

While Prewett makes it sound easy, the reality star admits that she has also struggled with feeling confident, and has had her moments of doubt. However, when she has these moments, Prewett said she reminds herself of God’s plan for her. 

“The message God laid on my heart is not that you were made for the moment of tomorrow, or you were made for the moment of yesterday, or you were made for the who you hope to be, or who you used to be, or you know you were made for her moment, or his moment,” she explained. “You were made for your moment. The moment that you were in right now is the moment you were made for, and God has intentionally created you and knit you together intentionally. You have all that He’s called you to be.”

Movieguide® has previously reported on Prewett’s time on THE BACHELOR: 

Madison Prewett shared that her time on the reality TV show THE BACHELOR tested her faith and ultimately gave her more understanding of her spiritual journey.

The 24-year-old was Peter Weber’s runner-up on Season 24 of the ABC dating show. After Weber broke off his engagement to Hannah Ann Sluss, he confessed his love for Prewett on the “After the Final Rose” special.

Unfortunately, Weber’s family did not endorse the relationship, and the couple parted ways.

Prewett said that her time on the reality TV show showed her the importance of a solid foundation and encouraged her to have confidence in her identity in Christ.

“I would say that two of the biggest things that I learned from my time on the show is just how to stay true to yourself, no matter what environment or situation that you’re in,” Prewett said. “I think we live in a world where a lot of people if you don’t know who you are, others will try and tell you who you are. It’s really important for you to be rooted and grounded and stay true no matter what’s thrown your way. I had that tested to the highest degree [on the show].”

Prewett added: “And secondly, I’m a part of something bigger than myself. This life isn’t just about me and what I can get and what I can take from it, but rather what can I give and how can I make a difference and how can I add value? [The Bachelor] changed a lot for me and really brought a lot of things into perspective.”

“Faith isn’t so much predicated on feeling or on circumstance… I think when we choose to believe in something bigger than ourselves, we’re choosing to believe that component of life right through the highs and lows of life,” Prewett told Fox News while promoting her participation in the World Vision Gift catalog.

“For me, even the low moments, it doesn’t shake that foundation,” Prewett said. “It just inspires me more. And so for me, during [the pandemic], it’s really brought a lot into perspective… the things that matter, the things that I want to be spending my time on.”
