Modesty: More than a fashion statement

  So often in our society modesty is made something that our parents force on us (and they do it just to irritate us. They don't really care, and besides, what do they know about fashion, etc. Can you relate?)  The truth is they want to protect us and sometimes they don't want their little girl to grow up. To get that first pair of heels, put on makeup for the first time, to have that first date, to go off and have their happily ever after. It is because of LOVE that they want us to be modest. It is because of LOVE that they shield us from "fitting in", and if you think about it, fitting in doesn't always mean looking pretty in the first place.

   The world has a twisted view of beauty. It's our job to untwist it. It's our job to show the world that beauty does not need to be flaunted or paraded like a toy. It should be cherished and nurtured. Does that mean that you have to join a convent and never go outside again? No. God tells us to be a light to the world. We are to be in the world but not of the world.
    Talk to your girl friends, do some research. As a famous someone from some movie once said, "It's easy; just hard."
    Don't be discouraged. Do it for the guys around you. You will be rewarded.

    God Bless, and Good luck!



  1. Emily,

    This is a great post and so true! It's not easy being different but it's so worth it! This world of immodesty frustrates me as it's everywhere, but we are called to be different and the rewards are great! Keep on keeping on for the Lord!

  2. Great post, Emily! :) It is absolutely possible to be fashionable and modest. That video was good. It's good to re-assess how you dress and act every once in a while. :)

    God bless,
    Joy :)
