Women of Faith speaker supports husband at ‘DWTS’ premiere

DALLAS, TX (AP) – On Monday, September 24, Women of Faith speaker Pat Smith, will reenter the grand ballroom arena once again, to cheer on her husband Emmitt as he keeps his eye on the mirror ball prize.

The former NFL star will compete in the All-Star season of Dancing with the Stars, hoping for the first ever two-time champion title.

“I remember the first time Emmitt got the call to be on Dancing with the Stars,” said Pat Smith, former actress and beauty queen. “I thought they were calling for me but when I watched him I was amazed, thinking, this brother can dance! Look at my man go!”

In 2006, when Emmitt, along with dance partner Cheryl Burke, was named the Mirror Ball Trophy winner of the hit ABC reality show, Pat supported her husband each step of the way.

“I am so happy to be married to such a great man,” said Pat. “Despite our busy schedules, he always makes his family his priority, supporting our goals and dreams. I am thrilled that he has another opportunity to show the world what he is made of.”

Apart from supporting Emmitt and being a great mom to their five children, Pat Smith has a few accomplishments of her own. As founder of Treasure You, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting women in financial and emotional or spiritual need, Pat has also embraced her calling to minister to women by joining the 2012 Women of Faith Celebrate What Matters national tour. Sharing her story to thousands of women across the nation at Women of

Faith, Pat tells of losing her mother to breast cancer at twenty-two and the impact it has had on her life. She also confesses that she has struggled with living in the shadows of her sought after, legendary NFL pro-husband.

    He seems like a great guy; nice couple. I met Emmit Smith once while living in Orlando,FL. A friend and I attended an event in honor of the Orlando Magic and I spoke to him not knowing who he was. I was not sure it was him, so I started questioning him as if a cross-examination in court (I had alot of nerve in my younger days). Low and behold, a couple of weeks later, I was watching TV and saw him in an ad and if WAS him. I have to ask him to forgive after all these years. I hope you win DWTS!!!

  2. I just love Emmitt. I loved him the first time I saw him dance on DWS. I didn’t know about his football career, of course my husband did however. He yells, “that’s Emmitt Smith!” I said, “I don’t know who he is but he sure can dance”. I wish Pat had spoken at WAF in Denver so I could be even more amazed! I love the fact that you are all believers it really warms my heart and I will be looking forward to hearing Pat speak in the near future.
