Happy Sunday everyone! We were richly blessed at our church today and I hope you were too! I want to continue answering the questions that were left for me. So...
What helped you make the decision to forego department store clothes for you and your girls? Was it faith-based? Was it financially-driven, or perhaps for modesty reasons?
The answer- Yes, yes, and yes! A while ago I posted a very long note of facebook about the spirtiual reasons of What helped you make the decision to forego department store clothes for you and your girls? Was it faith-based? Was it financially-driven, or perhaps for modesty reasons?why I dress the way I do. It's a good read and I encourage everyone to read it. If those of you not on facebook would like to read it just leave me a comment and I'd be glad to post it on here. In my opinion, modesty goes right along with the spiritual reasons. And the financial blessing is an added bonus. :) But, trust me, it was an issue that the Lord and I wrestled with for a long time. It wasn't like I woke up one morning and decided to go out and dress totally different than everyone I knew! You'd better believe I felt a strong conviction!
My goal in life is to glorify God in ALL that I do. Even when it comes to my clothing. I don't want to bring attention to myself or be in the latest fashion. That brings praise to me...not the Lord. The dresses that I (and my girls) wear are modest, plain, and frugal. Allowing me and those around me to set their minds on the things above and not of this world.
Hope that answers your question! Again, I totally recommend reading the facebook note, it goes into a good bit of detail.
Thanks again for reading!
