10 Days To Modest! 20 Great Modesty Resources


~ A Christian Guy - Age 20 ~

Let’s be honest. We’re men, and we’re responsible for ourselves. We’re responsible for our thoughts, for our lusts, for our character. We won’t be able to blame the girls when we’re called to give account for it in the judgment day. We won’t be able to say like Adam, “The woman you made…”
In fact, the Bible warns us that if our eyes are causing us to offend, it would be better to pluck it out than to allow it to lead us astray. Now you girls don’t want that to happen… Please?
We are responsible for bringing these senses into subordination to the will of God. We’re trying. And we get tested every day. That’s our job wherever we are, whether in the world or in church. But quite honestly, we’d rather do our battles with the world than with our sisters in Christ.

Congrats to the winner of the giveaway, but we are all winners here by learning a little bit more of what God expects of us! Thank you so much for placing this very important aspect of the Christian woman's walk in the forefronts of our minds these last 10 days. What a blessing its been...and thank you so much for the resources, great ones at that. Who doesn't just adore John Piper??

THANK YOU!!! I've never won a bloggy giveaway! I'm SOOOO excited! I'll email you soon. I am all about modesty and always encourage my daughters in modesty. I really enjoyed your discussion on this topic and love that you brought out the beauty of modesty. Thank you for your insight!

Of course. I'm honored.

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on modesty. Our Sunday School teacher approached Mama Hen and me yesterday and spoke with us about addressing modesty with the ladies in our Sunday School.

Another lady, who was dressed so super cute yesterday, said that she initially got dressed without her tank top, but realized that she needed a little more coverage.

All this talk has brought ladies to a new understanding of their dress.

Sarah Mae, you did a wonderful job with this series. I really looked forward to each post and I especially like this last one with all the links. The modesty fashion show was a great idea and I think it will leave a lasting impression. Great job!
