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.

If you place the Maidens for Modesty button on your blog, let us know and we'll add you to the list below!

I put the maidens for Modesty on my blog, Mayden Fair. I want to join. Sounds like fun, and inspiring!
YOu know, you should create a directory of maidens modestly dressing, so that other girls, can find fellowship in their area! I know how it is, to find girls, to fellowship with, who like to dress modestly!
Laura H

Anna S said...

Wonderful post! And yes, just like you stated, modesty isn't a long list of do's and don't's, but begins in our hearts, when we commit to purity and want it to show!

Allison said...

I too, placed the Maidens for Modesty on my blog. I love that picture; to me it is a great example of modesty. Have a wonderful week!

Cecilia Rose said...

I put the Maidens for Modesty on my blog, too! What a wonderful idea! I also like the idea of a directory. It's hard (especially going to a very liberal college) to find other girls who believe in modest dress, and it's so nice to know that there are people out there with the same values as me!
God Bless!

Anna Naomi said...

The directory is a good idea - I'd thought of doing it! Now that you've suggested it, I've added a listing of those with the button on their blog to the original post.

Ella said...

You girls can definitely put me on here. Modesty is greatly important to me, both externally and internally.

You know, ya'll sounded like the Rebultion a tiny bit in reference to modesty not being a set of legalistic rules. I like it!

Ella said...

Maybe someone can help me....I have tweaked this around, and I can't get it to either link or to show the picture up on my blog!

Anna said...

I am putting this on my blog if I can! (sometimes it doesn't work so well!)

Anna said...

Hmm. maybe someone has some suggestions! This absolutely will not show up! I've tried several times now. =) Great post, anyways!

Elijah Lofgren said...

I think the code got messed up when the post was edited. You can find the correct code here:

Anna Naomi said...

Sorry about that... Somehow when I edited the post to add the links, the code got messed up. It should be working now.

Anna said...

Thank you very much,,it's now working beautifully!

Laura H said...

You've been tagged. It is a middle name Meme. Look up http://countryrosebud.blogspot.com for more details!

Ella said...

Thank you Anna and Elijah. The link is now up and running on my blog!

Hannah said...

It's now on my blog as well. :) I love the idea of the directory...Thanks for making the Maidens for Modesty button! I've been wanting to add something like that to my blog for some time now, and I'm so glad it was you girls who did it. :D
God Bless!

puritanismtoday said...

Dear Maidens,

As I said before I am greatly encouraged to see young girls with the values you present on this site. However if I may I would like to make a few comments for you to think over. They are not really criticisms as much as suggestions.

On such a statement of modest values you may like to mention the necessity of discreetness of behaviour a little more. I am sure that you are discreet, and that you could teach a lot in this area. I say this because I fear that too often modesty is viewed as merely a matter of clothing. I have met girls who are modest in dress but indiscreet in behaviour especially speech. They thus lose that beautiful dignity and feminineness that should go with their clothes.

The other is more important. Although it is probably made clear on your site I worry about your message being too connected to the clothes worn in the picture. I love the clothes, indeed I would love to see a day when such clothes could be worn without it being regarded as terribly odd. I believe that Christians, especially girls, must be willing to be odd - though I dress a little differently from the average young man - but not more than is necessary. Of course to be feminine and modest that will be a good bit differently from the average. However, I fear some will allow the picture to prejudice them against your message - which is vital for the Church.

Anyway, A few comments or points about discretion and such like would, I believe, make an improvement. Regarding the second point a mere mention of the fact that the period clothing is not essential to modesty would be sufficient. I am certainly not saying to change the picture - especially as it shows your Biblically long hair. As I said, these points are probably mentioned sufficiently elsewhere on your site, but the problem is that they will not be read by all.

I trust I have not offended you.

G.M

Mandy Grace said...

What a wonderful idea! I will put the code on my blog too. I appreciate what you girls are doing here on your blog to stand for modesty. :-)

Anna Naomi said...

G.M., thanks for your suggestions! I have edited the post somewhat to add more on behavior, and to let them know that old-fashioned doesn't equal modesty!

I appreciate the input you all give!

puritanismtoday said...

Dear Anna Naomi,

Your humility in accepting suggestions is commendable. I hope that I am as ready to do so from a stranger. If you ever visit my site please feel totally free to offer any suggestions.

I wish all girls were convinced of the points in your 'Values'. I wonder how much professedly Christian girls who do not dress modestly understand of the effect they have on their brothers. Their fathers need to tell them; but surly they are at least a little aware? Is it the case that they dress that way because they know it attracts attention?

May God be pleased to bring a day when dressing immodestly will almost guarantee that a young professing Christian girl will stay single. Sadly we men - even those of us that profess Christ - often encourage such immodesty by our attention to the girls that dress in that way.

I heard a good statement recently: A man said to his daughter when she sought to go out in clothing that was less than modest, 'If you’re not for sale, don't advertise!'

I am glad I gave you no offence.

G.M

puritanismtoday said...

Dear Anna Naomi,

Sorry, I meant to say that I said, 'Biblically long hair' not because of the exact length, but because of the general ‘long-ness’.

G.M

Elizabeth Ellen Moore said...

This is wonderful. I love your emphasis on modest behavior and clothing. I am not much into putting buttons on my sidebar, but I wholeheartedly agree with your values. Keep up the good work!

BonnieBee said...

I've put the 'Maidens for Modesty' on my blog.
Great post!

Anna and Miriam said...

BonnieBee: You don't have a link to your blog in your profile; could you post a link to your blog, so that we can link to you in the post?

Sheila said...

I meant to comment before! Sorry! This is so great, girls! If it's okay, I would love to be part of 'Maidens for Modesty'! I will put the icon on my blog right now.

This is so important. Over the years, I've gained a better idea of what I want to see in myself in regards to modesty. I think this might be another post starter for my blog! :)

God bless,
Sheila

I just wanted to let you know that I put the 'Maidens for Modesty' link on my blog. I think that this blog is wonderfully inspiring for those of us who are aiming for modesty.

Coffee Catholic said...

I'm not a Maiden for Modesty - I'm a Matron for Modesty haha! I just wanted to say that I am so deeply moved by this revolution of modesty that is taking place in the world. I don't mean to make you sound like little kids, it's just that I am thrilled beyond belief to see so many modest young women with blogs like this one! GOD BLESS YOU! Keep up the good work passing the torch!

Your sister in Christ,
Michelle Therese

Lisa Marie said...

I just wanted to let you know that my site name changed. (You have it listd as Lisa's Little Corner, I recently changed it to "A Rose Amongst Thorns", the former name was more of a place holder until I could find something that fit what I was looking for). If you don't mind changing it that would be great (the address is the same). Thanks

Pamala said...

I put Maidens for Modesty on my blog, singlemomshelp.blogspot.com. This post is so very important in this age when the media and TV display women showing so much of their bodies with tight and revealing clothes. How are men to respect and honor us, as God intended, if we don't dress modestly? Thank you so much for this post. It's something that I've felt for a long time, but didn't know how many others felt the same.

AutiMama said...

I also added Maidens for Modesty on my blog and want to let you know how much it blesses my spirit to see such commitment to honor the Lord. Modesty internally and externally, you girls are beautiful and I will hold you and yours in my prayers.

May the Lord bless and keep guiding you down the narrow path.

Anna and Miriam said...

AutiMama, Thanks for the encouragement! May we have a link to your blog? Your profile can't be displayed.

åslaug said...

Hello, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your button and values. It is important. Not only for the way we display Christ through our lives, but also for the way we affect our christian brothers (no, not all christian girls are aware. I wasn't, until my cousin commented it, and even after that it's been a long way to understand what a garment reveales on a body compared to what it looks like hanging in the wardrobe). You have an important message, I wish somebody had told me before, so I'll try to make it up by telling others, and I'm glad you do so too =)
Greetings in Christ!

Yes, and by the way, I've added the button =)

~ Lindy ~ said...

Hi there....I'm in total agreement with your values. I dress modestly and also cover my hair.head in worship. But can I ask, why you chose to use a picture, as the one to include on other web sites, if you don't feel that picture is descriptive of your 'style'? Meaning....doesn't it send a message, from viewing this picture, that one HAS to dress with long skirts and long hair in order to be modest? I'd love to support your web site, but I'm not sure about the photo... is there an alternative photo or html code that I can use on my blog site? Thanks for your site. Do you post regular blogs?

Anna and Miriam said...

Lindy: We used the picture because it was pretty with the soft colors and I really liked how it looked with our heads down and away from the camera. No, we don't dress this way every day - though I certainly enjoy these kind of dresses and enjoy wearing them on special occasions. I don't think that modesty is equated with long hair and ankle-length skirts, as I stated before, but there's a certain beauty to such things, that I enjoyed using to represent this. The picture is reminiscent of by-gone eras, when there were more modest maidens.

I realize that everyone's style is different, and not everyone likes the old-fashioned look. If you wanted to just link to the post, feel free, but at this point we don't have another graphic. Yes, we do post blogs regularly, which you can view by going to http://maidensofworth.org. Thank you for your input.

Hello! I put your graphic on my blog "Maiden of Modesty"!

-M said...

Hello!

I have made a social network called "Modest Maidens". There are several "modest maiden" sites out there, including yours (maidens FOR modesty, maidens OF modesty, veiled glory, ect..) and I made the social network so that we all can come together and have our own profiles and connect. It's private and by invitation only. Please reply if you are interested.

Here's the site:
http://modestmaidens.ning.com/

(I'm still working on it!)

I've listed your site "Maidens for Modesty" as a link, I hope you don't mind. If you do, just tell me, I'll take it off.

buckynay17 said...

Hello, I am also going to add it to my blog, http://bsjonesjourney.blogspot.com/ . I am still on my journey to real modesty, but would love to know if you have the pattern to those dresses in the picture, and where I could get it. They are so pretty.

Lauren said...

Hello Maidens,

My sister-in-law, Abigail, posted your button on our joint blog www.pearlsanddiamonds.wordpress.com

I do agree with puritanismtoday that your picture might scare away the average reader--even one who is seeking to be modest. Especially in light of the recent pictures of polygamous Mormons in Texas making national headlines--wearing dresses of similar style.

That said, I myself like the picture and appreciate that it definitely sets a clear example of feminity and modesty--no question about that! Keep standing for biblical standards! :-) And keep loving Jesus most of all!

Blessings,
Lauren

Tammy said...

Berean Wife has added your Maidens For Modesty button to her Site.

My Daughter would blend right in. Everyone compliments her on how beautifully she dresses and her hair. She does nothing special. She has waist length hair and she dresses femininely and modestly. Most clothes come from the thrift store and she sews a few simple skirts.

Modesty is beautiful.

What a great blog! I can't wait to see upcoming posts. I also try to dress, act, and live modestly. It can be such a struggle in our culture today! I'm glad for support like this blog.

Thanks, and God Bless!!!!

I like your ideas, particularly because I feel similarly, living in a society where there is way to much "exposure". I also like how you think of it as an internal thing, as well as a physical thing and not as a list of rules.

For the first time in a very long time, I am finally working on my own blog (which I am having to rebuild from scratch). I have joyfully added you girls to my sidebar!

Also, I have been looking high and low for a women's colonial dress pattern like one's y'all wear so often (I love this pattern) but I can't find one anywhere local--and I honestly don't have alot of money to invest. Any suggestions???

In His Grace, maggie

By way of introduction, my name is Liat Bensimon, and I am from Miami, FL. In my quest to combine my desire to participate in athletic events and remain modest, I created a patent-pending Modest Exercise Skirt (i.e. EXERSKIRT). This skirt has "gym shorts" attached to it and allows for the full range of mobility, all while adhering to the laws of Modesty.

I feel that my skirt would be perfect for the modest women in the Modest community, for both exercise and for casual attire, since they care about modesty, yet are engaged in the every day world.

In the meantime, you can view more information on my website at www.miraclothes.com, or email me at liat@miraclothes.com

Thanks, and I look forward to speaking with you soon.

How blessed I am in finding your lovely blog! I am in my 50's and write The Salt Box. I am getting use to women having a difficult time with the modesty issue, and now I have a real Pic/link on my blog that they may 'see' and visit, without having to interact with me if they don't wish to. Great service to the Lord Jesus, girls! Praise be to His name!

Scarlett said...

I added this to my blog. I do think that modesty is a little different in every family. I do believe in braiding my hair, but do not do it for beauty, more that I have come to think that the beauty of my hair being down is a treat I only share with my beloved. I also have come to believe in a head covering. I love what Maidens for Modesty represents. It is fairly new to me, I have only been living modest for a year myself, but am so happy to find that I am not alone!

miss mary said...

Hi! i love what ou represent. I try to live as modestly as I can. I only wear dresses, I do not cut my hair and I cover my head(a recent conviction)I have just put your button on my site. God Bless and Hugs

Eliza said...

This is a great site! When did you start it? By the way, My family hoeschools to. Maybe I all ready said that.....

I agree with all of you about dressing modestly. Well, take my bathing suit. It's like a shirt with pants, connected, with a small skirt, and cute print. most of the time, people will say things like: "Is that a swimsuit?!?", but 2 weeks ago a girl said that my suit was REALLY CUTE. Maybe it was a dare, but, whatever. My point is KEEP GOING! Don't worry about what other people say. "Don't look side to side: Look up!"

Thanks!

What a lovely blog! I have used one of your quotes about "Like a ring in a pig's snout..." in my blog [yes, I have given you credit it was from your blog :-)] concerning the epidemic of piercings that young ladies and young men do and how our bodies are a temple, inside and out and how piercing it, is mutilating His creation.

Please place the name of my blog on your list. I have your link on my blog.

Blessings!

Excellent blog! I'm a Muslim girl in the U.S. and I also choose to be modest without being forced. I wear a veil that covers my hair and I wear baggy clothing that doesn't reveal my body. We Muslims totally support this movement! Keep it up!!

Laura said...

I am putting one of the buttons on my blogs! I have other ones that are not on Blogspot (I have one of those too, though) and I will be posting about it on them! Thank you for being a place where young women can be encouraged to be modest instead of told to dress inappropriately. :-)

May God bless you, and have a merry CHRISTmas!

Prairie Momma said...

Wow, thank you, thank you, thank you for putting up a blog like this!! I know that in this day and age, we, as Godly young women striving to be the way God meant us to be, can be difficult, as well as discouraging sometimes when there seems to be no one else out there that wants to do the same! This is so encouraging and I am going to definitely find a way to put your blog on my side bar!! Thank you for doing this!

Hello! I just found your blog, but have been encouraged by it! I'm so blessed to see other modestly dressed sisters in Christ! Praise the Lord! I'll put Maidens for Modesty on my blog too. Thank you!Plus, to go along with a comment Cecilia Rose said--it is hard to find modestly dressed girls while attending college and I so appreciate it!

Anonymous said...

Hi, I don't have a blog, but it's wonderful to find so many other young ladies with the same beliefs. Sometimes I feel very lonely in the stance I have taken. One thing I find encouraging is that the Christian young men I know really do appreciate our modesty.

Hi,
I just wanted to let y'all know that I am going to put the button on my blog. The Lord laid modest dressing on my heart a little under a year ago. As I started dressing modestly I began to realize that it wasn't just a matter of what clothes I wore, but also the way I presented myself.

I enjoy reading your blog it is very encouraging!!

God Bless,
Brea
