The Raise of Modest Fashion in Russia
Moscow with its penchant for grand statements might not be one’s first choice for modest fashion, but it is precisely this global cultural phenomenon that designer Aishat Kadyrova of the Firdaws fashion house explored in her Fall/Winter 2017-18 runway show which concluded Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Russia

With the Holiday season, often comes, ample opportunities to heal once and for all, or injure wounds that were never properly rehabilitated.

4 Things To Remember When You Question God
One of the worst feelings for me is when I have a very important question that goes unanswered. It is an overwhelming feeling of being unfinished or incomplete.

There will come a time in our spiritual journey when the Lord will disrupt our plans. When He is trying to guide us in a new way. His preference is that we would sense His leading, fully cooperate and move in the new direction.
Why I wear Skirts
Hi! I’m honored that you are here on my blog! I know your time is precious, and you want to read the 3 reasons why I wear skirts all the time. Before you read this post, please keep an open mind and know that I love all my sisters in Christ, whether you wear a skirt or not! There are far more important topics that are of eternal value. But sometimes the little things have to be discussed as well. We need to dive deep into these smaller topics, so we can build a strong foundation, and...
Modesty. The “M” word in our Christian circles. I have written a lot about it from the heart of modesty to what men really think about modesty. Inevitably, people always make a comment about how destructive this concept of modesty is on a girl’s psyche as if somehow covering our bodies oppresses and demeans women.
Let’s Start Thinking Right About Modesty: 4 Reasons To Put Some Clothes On
Let’s go ahead and get the necessary caveats out of the way: I don’t have a right to tell you how to dress (but God does); it isn’t a sin to be pretty/handsome; I am ultimately responsible for my own thoughts of lust and will answer before the Lord in Judgment; the line between being modest and immodest isn’t always black and white; modesty isn’t just about dress; modesty isn’t just for women; yada, yada, yada.
Why Modesty Is Attractive
Women, yes, we are designed to display the glory and beauty of the Lord. But the beauty for God is far different from what the world has made it about. In the Bible, Sarah was obviously beautiful and yet she is commended for her submission to her husband and to the Lord. Jesus was greatly loved by the people because of His ministry and service, but was said to have been unremarkable in his physique. What God thinks is precious isn’t a pair of blue eyes, an attractive body, a beautiful face,...
Why I' Ditching My Fast Fashion Habit
I plan to write more at least 7 more style-enhancing tutorial posts, like the posts you loved in my Style 101 series. I plan to collaborate more with other modest fashion bloggers (so you’ll see less of my mug and more of theirs). I even plan to enter the (slightly frightening) world of Youtube. Once I narrowed down my list, I quickly realized that these goals are perhaps the most important:
Making Friends as a Christian Women
As a child it is fairly easy to make friends, right? We just share a toy or snack, or even just jump right in playing with someone new. Maybe those friendships don’t last, maybe they do. But kids don’t worry about saying something awkward, or appearing too eager to make friends, do they?
As someone who has overcome nearly 40 procedures in twenty-seven years for a rare birth defect called Artereovenous Malformation, this is just one example of how challenging it has been to find my place in a society where beauty is so closely connected to worth, particularly for women. Among other complications, during puberty, the abnormally connected arteries and veins throughout the inside of my right jaw, tongue, and chin caused my face to grow and become distorted. I have had to redefine...
Looking Back at youth Congress
Nearly 34,000 students will attend the North American Youth Congress (NAYC) at the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium, July 26-28. NAYC is one of the largest religious youth gatherings in North America.

We Are Influencers
Anthropologically speaking, women are the primary agents of enculturation in most societies. Enculturation is the process whereby culture is transmitted from one generation to the next and individuals become members of their society.
