Over the past six years or so, my perception about Modesty and what it really is has changed drastically. God has stretched me hard in this area. And lately, in a sense I feel like I've been stretched harder. I sometimes post modest clothing posts, which I do feel is very important in this day… Continue reading What is True Beauty? Musings about Modesty
When I walked towards the checkout line I noticed her. Her long hair was coiled into a bun at the nape of her neck, peaking out from underneath a wide band of fabric secured behind her ears. Her skirt nearly swept the floor, and a subdued tshirt sat underneath a satchel that hung from her… Continue reading Why Covering Our Body is Important
I'm wrapping up the modesty vlogs for now (but quite honestly, I will probably revisit this topic.) In this fourth installment, I briefly discuss why modesty is more than what we wear...it is truly so much more!

https://youtu.be/KSXG1mO6pwQ Hey guys! I recently took a few minutes to talk about the most important reason to dress modesty, which is that it glorifies God. If you have a minute, please feel free to take a look. Thank you so much for stopping by! Possibly linking to these awesome link parties.
Recently, I've had a few requests from ladies who would like to dress more modestly, but they haven't the slightest idea where to start. They've asked to take a peek into my closet. So I've obliged.

About one year ago I shared about why my family chooses to wear skirts and dresses almost exclusively. Those reasons were pretty much cultural, and not at all Biblically based. However, much like my sudden understanding of head covering, I feel like the Lord revealed something to me this past weekend which is a Biblical case… Continue reading Biblical Reasoning Behind Wearing Skirts and Dresses
Every once and awhile, someone asks me why I write about modesty. Or they might say, "Isn't there something else that you can write about that would better further the kingdom of God?"

I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works. Let a woman learn… Continue reading Why We MUST Consider Modesty
Earlier today, Stacey from Abiding Woman shared an excellent message by Paul Washer on the topic of recovering biblical womanhood. I watched it about an hour ago, and one of his main discussion points was discretion in dress. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kQ5v_tEAEw The Lord has worked on "recovering" modesty in my dress over the past three years, and… Continue reading Teaching Discretion to Our Daughters
Head coverings. While Paul spends a good bit of time discussing them, whenever I read the 11th chapter of 1 Corinthians, I usually walk away terribly confused.

I began wearing skirts almost exclusively over two years ago. At that point in time, my convictions and motives were strong.

Over the past few months however, my convictions and motives just haven't been as… Continue reading Rethinking Modesty and Skirts
Modesty and Jesus. These are two words that we normally do not use in the same sentence. Jesus really doesn't care about what we wear, right? Are outward appearances really that important? First a little background concerning who we are in Christ... Once we were totally lost in sin, without any hope. Now as Christian ladies, we… Continue reading Modesty and Jesus.
