Something on My Heart

Before you read this post any further I need to warn you that what I write in this post may be sensitive to some readers. Consider yourself warned.

I'm deeply concerned about the level of immodesty I'm seeing in young women, teen girls and even little girls.

Sunday at church there was a little girl about 7 or 8 years of age dressed in an outfit you would normally see on a teen girl. Why are clothing designers trying to make our little girls, some who are still playing with baby dolls look sexy?

I know I have failed many times in the area of modesty when it comes to my own daughters. I want to please the Lord and to be honest I think it would be so much easier if I had been raised in a plain church. Of course that is probably an excuse because I know people who are not attending a plain church but they still have a standard for modesty.

I love the way Conservative Mennonite cape dresses look and they are so comfortable to wear. They probably are old fashioned and frumpy looking to most people but I really don't care. They don't make one look "holier than thou" but of course there are some people who believe that is the case.

What kind of message are we sending when we get dressed in the morning?
I really had much more to say (Remember the warning in the beginning of this post?) but I decided it was just too sensitive for my younger readers.


  1. Sister Regina, you have expressed my precise sentiments. The sad thing is that if you asked their parents if what they were wearing was wrong they would say no. "it's cute" They need to read 1 Timothy 2:9

  2. Sister Regina -

    I agree with you completely!!!! When I see the outfits that are for sale for young girls I keep thinking to myself that if we ever have a daughter, I'm going to have to make her clothes for her.

  3. Hello Regina,

    I have been reading back in your posts and after reading this one I thought you might like a link to a page that is a modest clothing directory of places that sell modest clothing. I looked at some of the stores and found some things I really like.

    Here is the link: http://puremodestyinfo.blogspot.com/p/clothing.html

    The blog is no longer being written on but the page of links is working.

    Thanks for your blog! Bless you!
