I enjoyed this blog post on MODESTY, and wanted to share it.  When I read postings on the topic I try not to read it as a 30 year old woman, but as a young teenage girl.

I think this view on modesty is simple, direct, yet might actually cause a young girl/woman to think about it, instead of turning them off of the idea of modesty completely, especially those who have no strong religious or moral convictions.

Here's a tidbit. Please click on the link to read the whole article.

Modesty.  What is the first image that comes to mind when someone mentions modesty?  Do you have pictures of Amish women and nuns running through your head?  If so, I would like to show you a different definition of modesty, and why it is so very important for young girls and this generation.

Modesty isn’t solely about “how much skin do I have to cover”, it’s an outside and inside type of lifestyle.  The question shouldn’t be, “how much skin can I show without getting into trouble?”, it should be, “by wearing this, what am I trying to achieve or convey?”

  1. I agree--many young women especially have no idea what they're conveying by wearing skimpy, tight clothes that are "fashion." But fighting them on this may be a losing battle--particularly for mothers! Even if you back religion out of the equation, wearing those clothes sends a message these girls often don't intend.


Please keep it clean!!
