Maidens for Modesty - Values

As Maidens for Modesty, what are our values?
  • We believe in dressing in modest apparel, as it says in 1 Timothy 2:8-9 - "I also want a women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God."
  • We believe in saving our bodies and not exposing them to others, but protecting what God has given us.
  • We believe in being modest in the way we act, talk, walk, and carry ourselves.
  • We know that true modesty begins in the heart, and is an attitude more than what we wear.
  • We believe in behaving discretely and with modesty.
  • However, our clothing usually displays our true self, and we believe in dressing modestly to be a witness to others.
  • We know that modesty isn't a legalistic set of rules, but rather guidelines to help determine what we should wear.
  • We believe in presenting discretion and dignity in what we wear and how we behave- "Like a gold ring in a pig's snout is a beautiful women who shows no discretion." ~ Proverbs 11:22
  • We believe in helping to protect men from the visual attack by dressing modestly as their sisters-in-Christ
  • We believe in dressing in a way that glorifies God, not our body.
  • We believe that modesty and purity are always in fashion!
  • We believe that modesty isn't old-fashioned - you don't have to wear colonial dresses (like the ones in the picture) or have waist-length hair to be modest!
  • We believe that fear of the Lord is the most beautiful thing - “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” ~ Proverbs 31:30
Will you join us in being a Maiden for Modesty? One way to do this (if you enjoy putting graphics and things on your sidebar) is to copy and paste the code below into your blog's sidebar. The picture will then show up on your sidebar, and will link back to this post, letting others know that you believe in modesty!

Now there are two pictures you can choose from! The code for each picture is in the box directly below it.




Read more about the new picture below, added in August 2008 by clicking here.




We are not perfect and we don't have modesty all figured out. However, we believe that we should honor God in the way we dress. We are committed to living a life of modesty.

The colored dresses were made using Simplicity's costume pattern #5041, for those wondering.

Sharon said...

Thank you very much for the time and care you have put into this blog, what an inspiration! I have added your button to the sidebars of two of my blogs...www.ozarkmountainfamily.blogspot.com and www.sheshallbecalledwoman.blogspot.com
I am very glad to be able to help others find your blog through mine!

Joy said...

How wonderful. I was not able to put this on my blog but I could not agree more. I showed this to my mother and sisters and they agree, as well. My mother was so glad to see this, to see that there ARE people in the world with the same beliefs and such as our family. (We are a homeschool family with semi-conservative values.)
In Him,
Joy Caroline W.

Ilene said...

Hello, Maidens! I'd very much like to be a "Maiden for Modesty," too. I've included the image and link on my new blog. Please add me to your directory at your convenience. Thank you & God bless!

Tina said...

Looks like no one has commented for a while. I just wanted to let you know, someone's still taking notice of your blog, and I'm sure I'm not the only one! Thanks for taking such a stand for modesty in a culture who prefers otherwise. Feel free to check out my blog as well if you'd like. God bless all of you!

-Tina

I put you as a widget on my blog. Awesome! I'm so happy to see all these modest women here in one place!

Carla said...

I am adding you to modest (as in tiny!) blog at callingmother.blogspot.com. It's actually a blog about answering the call to be a mother.

Aubree Ward said...

Hi,
I just found your blog!
I was wondering How old are you girls! Do you have an email?
Are you LDS or just Christian?
This is a wonderful blog!!
I love to blog!!
I am LDS, so I want to be Modest, plus I hate it when girls walk around SO immodest...It hurts me :(


Thanks,
~Aubree

Anna Naomi said...

Aubree: This blog is no longer active (hasn't been for a few years) as we're now both 22, Anna's married and Miriam's engaged, in new seasons of life. We are Christian. Glad this has encouraged you!

As far as the other posts where links didn't work, it looks like the info has been taken offline. Sorry about that!
