God Pleasing Modesty

| June 16, 2015

Sometimes I really hate reading modesty blog posts and the inevitable ensuing  fracas. No, most times I really hate reading them – and it frequently doesn’t matter which side of the issue is being argued. No matter how kind or how rude the original post, no matter if it is an urge to cover up […]

| February 2, 2015

“I don’t want men looking at me lustfully when I work here.” This is how a Muslim girl, cashier at Wal-Mart, replied to my wife’s question about the purpose of her head-covering, wrapped tightly around her head, covering everything except her face.

Fashion Design – Intelligent Design

| December 15, 2014

As she walks in the room, you pause your discussion, every attribute of her unique character diverting your attention.

Dear daughter, please believe me that you’re beautiful

| July 18, 2014

Dear Daughter, I hope you never notice the magazine rack at the supermarket. I hope you never see the billboards on the highway or the ads on the side of the city bus. I hope you never learn about Hollywood and the fashion industry. I hope you never listen to pop music. I hope you […]

Equally Valuable, Purposely Different

| April 25, 2014

By Bethany from GirlDefined The world says that Girls can’t. We know that girls can. We’ve proved to the world that girls can rock, girls can be strong, girls can rap, girls can be funny, girls can play the lead and girls can run the show. You just have to be courageous and challenge the […]

Be Rude

| March 10, 2014

As a young teen, Marie Antoinette came from the cozy family atmosphere of the court of her mother the Empress of Austria to marry the heir to the French throne. Morals were lax at the French court and Marie Antoinette’s higher standards made her plenty of enemies, especially when she snubbed Madame Du Barry, her […]

Don’t Be A Bathsheba

| February 21, 2014

  From Single, Young, Christian, Mom Don’t be the Bathsheba meaning don’t be a sexual temptation or a bad example of beauty for others. I’ve been thinking and praying a lot lately about how we as women deal with beauty.  Beauty is a battle in and of itself. Every woman longs deeply to have a beauty […]

| January 3, 2014

“Mention plastic surgery and the more judgmental among us immediately rattle off a list of traits its devotees probably share: vanity, frivolousness, narcissism, low self-esteem. We imagine shallow socialites or vain movie stars desperately trying to forestall the ravages of time. But in fact, cosmetic surgery is not an industry built on vanity alone, but […]

Columnist Ross Douthat has stirred up a hornet’s nest by commenting on a new study suggesting that being the parent of a girl may nudge people toward the Republican party.

Michelle Duggar on Teaching Her Daughters About Modest Dress

| October 20, 2013

When the girls are little, they’re jumping and playing and not even thinking about modesty. It’s good because that’s the way children should be. As a parent I would have to remind them, let’s not stand upside down on your head in that chair because you want to practice being ladylike. And they look at […]

Living out Biblical Principles: A Young Woman’s Prayer of Chastity

| September 6, 2013

From Stacy McDonald at Your Sacred Calling, I have made a covenant with my body to be discreet and chaste; why then should I flaunt myself before men? Does God not see my ways and count all my steps (Job 31:1,4)? Has He not said that marriage is honorable among all (Hebrews 13:4) and that […]
