One young lady’s journey of the heart toward modesty. Heartfelt, genuine, and humble!
Jennifer touches on a number of thoughts that I think we all go through…rebellion, “brother’s keeper”, gossip and judging others for what they wear, as well as the most important issue—having a modest heart and soul. Kudos to Jennifer for her heartfelt wisdom!
In the midst of all this can come a judgment in the hearts of women looking at each other. “Can you believe so and so showed up in jeans today?” “How legalistic to think you shouldn’t wear shorts on a hot day like … Read the rest...read more

If your child’s outfit looks like it could have been worn on America’s Next Top Model, you have big problems, my friend. Our kids should look like children, not women.
