A Word from the Momma

WOW!  And YEA God!  Those are the thoughts I woke up with this morning.  I want to say thank you to the "regulars" who view my blog, as well as all the new friends who popped over from The Modest Mom and It's Almost Naptime via links.  260 people popped in yesterday  and almost all of those read my daughter's guest post.  We had visitors from Russia, Guatemala, Belgium, Canada, and even Australia!  102 people have already been by this morning.  WELCOME!  We are honored and humbled that you would take the time to read her thoughts.

  You have blessed her by your kind comments and this momma thanks you!

She asked several weeks ago about posting, but when she sent me the post this week she said she would understand if I did not use it since it might be controversial.  You see, we differ slightly in our dress.  While ALP wears only dresses and skirts, I do not. (And don't even get me started on her quest to make modest bathing suits! :) ) But I have learned from her and am challenged by her daily.  She is the one that I now think of and use as my measuring stick when I get dressed.  An 18 YEAR OLD...seriously!  It is easy for me to monitor my girls' dress- nope, you can't wear that- but in the name of fashion I tend to be more lenient on myself.  How sad is that?  I am working on it!

I want to leave ALP's post to stand on its own, but I do want to end with this...

I have told my girls often that there is more than one way to share your body with others...and what you choose wear is one of those ways.  We should not be surprised that men, young and old alike, gawk at our girls, even the bitty ones, when we allow them to wear immodest clothes.  In the name of "cuteness" or "fashion" does not dismiss it!  We are a work in progress like many of you, we mess up and occasionally have to start over, but we are seeking to please the Lord...thank you for joining us!


  1. ALP's post yesterday was great. As a Christian man I am challenged daily in my walk as I encounter immodestly dressed women. The last place I should worry about this is at church but it can be bad there, also. I send ALP's post to several teens and to others that I think would profit by it. Thank her for being willing to suffer criticism for telling us her beliefs.

  2. I hope you don't mind; I shared a link to your daughter's post on my blog. It was very well written and very needed.

  3. That is so awesome how God left that up there for all to read about God's standard of modesty. When my blog was published on Money Saving Mom I had about 15,000 people view my blog and the last thing I wrote was about God's wonderful plan of salvation. God's timing is so perfect!!


Thanks for commenting. I love hearing from you!
