According to Erica, there’s nothing wrong with being a woman of God and embracing your sexuality.

“This is about confidence and realizing that God made you and that you are beautiful just the way you are,” she explained. “I think that young girls shouldn’t only get sexy images from people who are not proclaiming Jesus. But I am. And I’m cute too.”
