The LORD is MY Agent...And, HE Only Takes 10%
The Lord is My Agent...and He Only Takes 10%...is an inspirational, biographical account of former top model agent Tyron Barrington's journey as a Christian working in the 'scissor cutting' fashion industry for some of the world's leading fashion models. From the daily grind to the temptations and excess in Paris, Milan, London and New York, we see a different side of fashion from someone who has lived it. All the while, Tyron kept his eyes focused on God, even when he ran off course, while keeping his faith...and keeping the Lord as his agent.
The book details Tyron's rise to the top of the model agent world by following the precepts of the 23rd Psalm, which guided him at every step. The one constant: his faith in and service to the Lord, whom he credits with everything he accomplished.
The Lord is My Agent, and He Only Takes 10% is a memoir of the optimism and faith that helped a young dreamer find a home in a cutthroat business...and inspire others along the way.
