Modesty

Modesty has been on my mind a lot lately. Working in the schools, I see so many 12 and 13 year old girls (and 6 and 7 year old girls) wearing things that were designed for ages 20+ specifically to draw attention to certain aspects of their figure. I've also been increasingly troubled by the immodesty of some of the members at our church. While I believe firmly that men must take responsibility for their own lust issues, we are certainly not making it easy on them.

Mrs. Parunak over at Pursuing Titus 2 has written a beautiful blog entry that hits at the heart of this issue. I suggest you read it: The Top 10 Reasons Modesty Gets a Yawn. She regularly writes enlightening posts about modesty. While some of her ideas are still rolling around in my head for consideration, she writes eloquently and backs up her claims with research. Check it out!

Amen and AMEN!! What an AWESOME article. I've forwarded it to several people, including my mom who can share it with my teenage and pre teen sisters at her discretion. GREAT advice and encouragement. Thank God for women who are bold enough to address this very real problem in the Church.

I agree. I learned so much from her research/thoughts. She's awesome. I'm trying to figure out what to take from it and apply to my own life.

I have been giving modesty a lot of thought lately too.

You have a really cute layout on your blog. :)
