Kylie Bisutti, a Victoria's Secret lingerie model, recently quit that job because it conflicted with her hardcore Christian beliefs, and to save her body for her husband.

She will still model, but only in ways that honor the Lord.

Bisutti, 21, appeared on Good Morning America on Thursday to discuss her decision, why she decided to quit, and how her husband Mike Bisutti feels about it ...

"Growing in my relationship with the Lord and my faith… I just became so convicted about wanting to honor my husband with my body and wanting to be a role model for younger women out there that look up to me," Kylie explained.

In 2009, then-19-year-old and newly married Kylie beat out 10,000 other hopefuls in a Victoria's Secret model search saying: "I have a very sweet personality, but don't let that exterior fool you. I want this, and I'll do what it takes to get it."

But Kylie said she had an epiphany one day, and not a good one.

With her 8-year-old cousin admiring her physique, she recalls, "I was doing my makeup in the mirror one day and she was watching me… She just looked at me and she was like, 'I think I want to stop eating so I can look like you.'"

"And it just broke my heart, because she looks up to me."

"I didn't want to be that type of person that she thought she had to do that. Thousands of girls that think beauty is an outer issue, and really it's a heart issue."

How did her husband feel about this career move?

"He was so, so supportive of me and I'm just so thankful that he let me grow and let me come to this decision on my own," she said, noting that he's very happy.

"I'm definitely going to pursue modeling," she said. "I just want to be more wholesome and the jobs that I choose are always going to be honoring the Lord."

Guys everywhere just lost out big time, but you gotta respect the girl for putting her convictions ahead of superficiality, money and fame, right?

What do you think of Kylie's decision?
