Meant to be Modest: A Call for Women to Return to Modesty

meanttobemodestcover

If you read my blog on a regular basis, you probably know that I have a huge heart for modesty.  Almost six years ago I had a tremendous heart change about the topic, and I realized that dressing modestly both is a form of holiness and is pleasing to my Savior.

I decided to compile several of my old blog posts along with completely new material to make a short book about modesty.  It is called Meant to be Modest: A Call for Women to Return to ModestyI hope to release it on June 14, 2016 in both ebook and paperback format.

The Lord has intended for us to clothe ourselves in modesty for not only the sake of others, but for our own holiness.  Our worth is found in Christ alone, and not in our outward appearance, like the world would like for us to so desperately believe.  We mean so much to Him!  Modesty is also a form of protection, and without it, our society has wandered down the ugly road of pornography, sex trafficking, and more.

While our culture needs a total overhaul, I believe we can make a statement by returning to modesty.  We can make a difference.

This is something I believe wholeheartedly that both young and old women need to embrace of as they seek to serve their Savior.  After He has so graciously saved us, our hearts should turn to Him…our hearts should long for His holiness.

15 Thoughts on “Meant to be Modest: A Call for Women to Return to Modesty

  1. I am a huge fan of modesty. I wrote a post a while back on being modest. I think we got out of hand with our dress and need to take it down a bit.

  2. Beautiful feminine picture in your post! I preordered the book on Amazon and I’m always happy to find like minded views on modesty! Following from Lovelylittlelives.com

  3. Interesting! I may just have to check it out!

    Greetings! I’m new to your site. I am looking forward to watching the many-part series in your modesty post, too.

    However, one question I would ask is, what does the front of your young lady dressed in white look like? If she was photographed from the front view would you say she is modestly covered? Is this modest attire from the back view?

    Thank you for encouraging women to really consider the seriousness of modesty and how pleasing it is to our Bridegroom, Jesus Christ. If it’s in the heart of women, it shows. The Word says they’ll know we are Christians not by our clothes but by our love. I want my modesty in word and deed to esteem other brothers and sisters and my neighbor, and ultimately glorify Jesus Christ to Whom I am set apart and distinct. To please Him.

    Blessings,

      Hi Kelley! This is a stock photo, and so I’m not sure what the front of the model’s dress looks like, and the cover image is modest by our family’s standards. I do not personally see a problem with shoulders being exposed. Thanks so much for stopping by.

    This looks like a good read! I love that we can be modest without dressing like our grandmothers.

  6. Sounds wonderful! This is an important topic to me as well. Seems like so many Christians today don’t like being told to be modest. Definitely a difficult subject. I’m interested in what you say about the head covering thing. My family was just talking about this the other day, and I’ve often wondered if women, including myself, are being disobedient in this area. Blessing on your much needed book!
