Mrs. Plus America Brings Crown, Message of Hope to New Mexico June 5 – 9
HOUSTON (June 2, 2014) – Both her smile and her crown will be shining bright when the reigning Mrs. Plus America Constance Zehner heads to New Mexico for a multi-city tour. From June 5 – 9 Queen Constance will be visiting hospitals, schools, and community and cultural centers.
“I look forward to making many new friends and sharing my message of hope and encouragement,” Zehner said. “I truly believe, no matter how long it takes, no matter what the circumstances may look like, you can fulfill your destiny and you can triumph over adversity. It is my hope I can encourage other women to aspire to and achieve the dreams they hold precious in their heart.”
During her visit Zehner plans to meet with the citizens of New Mexico and share the story of her personal path to happiness, and perhaps a few trade secrets to making an evening gown look fantastic.
Zehner believes that although we all have pressures and limitations in life, success is measured by how you overcome adversity. Zehner is committed to sharing her philosophy of “SELAH! A 5 Points to Peace” – a divinely inspired strategy which has guided her for the past several years and helped her to achieve a dream she held since she was a young girl – competing in and winning a beauty pageant. In 2013, she obtained the title of Mrs. Plus America 2013 and with that achievement knew she could accomplish anything with the right attitude in place.
The Miss Plus America™ Pageant is an exclusive pageant system for women and teens sizes 14 and up. The Pageant is an organization devoted to celebrating the essence of the full-figured woman and giving her an avenue in which to pursue recognition for those causes. Beyond her external loveliness, to become a queen, the contestant must be a woman with uncompromising morals, a desire to serve her community through volunteerism, and a perfect representation of poise and grace. Contestants in the category of Mrs. Plus America must be at least 20 years old and married.

At 50+ years old and very full figured, Constance Zehner didn’t think that being in a pageant, much less winning a national title was ever going to happen. But she found the Miss Plus America pageant system and her dream of being in a beauty pageant was fulfilled. Competing as Mrs. Fort Bend County in the 2010 Miss Texas Plus America pageant, she placed first runner up Mrs. Texas Plus America. That did it! She was hooked!
Her new found love of pageantry motivated her to continue competing in the Miss Plus America system, winning the titles of Mrs. New Mexico Plus America 2011 and 2013. She also shared her expertise with aspiring young women desiring to be in pageantry by directing the Miss Houston and Miss Southwest Houston Texas Plus America pageants in 2012. Today, she wears the Mrs. Plus America 2013 crown.
Constance believes that although we all have pressures and limitations in life, success is measured by how you overcome them. It is her desire, passion and commitment to share with women all across America, SELAH! A Woman’s Guide to Overcoming Limitations in Life – the divinely inspired strategy that has guided her for the last three years. She is living proof that no matter how long it takes, no matter what the circumstances may look like, YOU can fulfill your destiny, YOU can be an over comer in life.
A woman of many facets and accomplishments, Constance is President of Sword & Crown Properties, Inc., a real estate investment firm and owner of Sword & Crown Productions, a special event business specializing in weddings, pageantry and educational training. Constance also founded and is Chairman of the Board of EXODUS FORCE INITIATIVE, a non-profit organization whose mission is to bring hope to the hopeless and promise to the land.
