Rethinking Modesty: Another Great Link

I have been studying and meditating quite a lot lately on our recent subject of modesty. I even completed my inductive Bible study on our passage, which is eye-opening and heart-changing, but I don't have time this morning to post it. Really quickly, I want to share with you a post (from a blogger I don't know) that I just happened to run across from a Facebook link this morning. Well-written and with all the feisty indignation that I appreciate, from a mom whose is set to fight the forces that want children to be tiny adults. The blog post is not specifically about modesty, but then again, IT IS. So much of our spiritual battle within this world is about modesty...or at least it begins with modesty. Versus a lack thereof.

Get fired up. This is important.

Back with the actual inductive Bible study later...I hope you'll join in!

Okay, I first read this post earlier this week, and I have also forwarded it to many friends. It has gotten me so fired up!

Ugh, I could go on forever about how I feel in response, but I'll just say that I'm so glad that somebody is being outspoken about it all and bringing further awareness to the situation!

Good - I'm glad you're sharing it, too! I think it's SO important for all of us to encourage each other about things like this. Makes a world of difference.

As a mother of a grown woman now, I look back at the seemingly insurmountable "everyone else is doing it" instances, and I can sympathize with this mother. Today, I see the children of my friends' daughters and the "friend instead of mother" relationships, and I cringe. Thanks for linking to this blog, Kristen, and I look forward to your Bible study later.

As someone who grew up in the Judy Blume era I whole heartedly agree with what Clover Lane wrote.

I am ever so thankful that my own daughter was able to grow up much as I did as we were living in Crete and Germany where children are allowed and even encouraged to be children.

Preach on!

I loved the Clover Lane article. We do need to take back modesty.

Thank you SO very much for your prayers my friend.
