Modest Girl of the Week - Julieth

So this week a lovely beautiful lady shares a bit of her story with us. Enjoy!

Name: Julieth C

Age:   22

Dressing Modestly Since:

Since I can remember, but I went thru some darks days. My high school years were not my greatest, it wasn’t until my senior year (grade 12) that I made up my mind to be either hot or cold and not warm just like the bible says, I didn’t want to be spit out by God. So I can say that since 2007 was when I made up my mind to follow God completely and dress modestly and even though sometimes I struggle, I have a great support system! My hubby and my wonderful Mother. And what I mean by struggle is by constantly making sure that this shirt doesn’t show too much, or this skirt isn’t too short... and sometimes trying to make it all work can be a challenge but it’s possible... :)

Anything you want to share about modesty:

The other day I was looking at some pictures on my Facebook and I was just sadden/angry/annoyed/etc. (I don’t know if u can feel all those feelings at once) but I think it was mostly disappointment. I was disappointed because of the lack of Modesty I see in some Christian Girls, it’s either that they just don’t care about being modest OR the elders are not teaching it! Both things disappoint me. I know for some it’s a new concept or it’s simply a struggle because of lack of knowledge but there are others who know the importance of Modesty but they simply just don’t care. I encourage you to CARE! Modesty is essential in a girl/lady's life and speaks to others about the God we serve, it is important that all ladies understand that and that the elders (the older generation) keep teaching modesty and inspiring the younger generation to follow the modesty principles found in scripture. In every aspect, in the way we speak, walk, dress, act, etc... it’s a lifestyle... I know it is not always easy because it’s hard to find clothes that suits our modesty standards but is not impossible. We are the King’s daughters, that makes us princesses. If you look at how princesses in the world dress, they always have a certain level of modesty which they follow, even if they are not Christian but they do it because of who they represent, a Royal family. We represent the King above all Kings. Lets stand by what we believe and not let others tell us otherwise. Modesty Rocks!!!

Special Interests:

I enjoy crafting and good music. My hubby is a crazy musician so there’s music going on in my house all the time. Art and music are part of my life. Even our 3 month old baby enjoys our craziness... All for the glory of God!

Thanks Julieth for sharing your thoughts with us and for being an awesome follower!

How We Wore "TMWS" Skirts

Today I just wanted to share what my friend Becky and I wore to church over the weekend.

Both skirts we are wearing are from my shop. May I say, it’s such an privileged for me when I see the ladies wearing things from The Modesty Walk Shop! I’m honoured to serve them in this way. The skirt Becky is wearing was a short plain jean skirt and I customized it by adding those beautiful ruffles! This is actually something you could do yourself too with a little creativity to make those shorter skirts a little bit longer, or of course, if you don’t have the patience or time to deal with sewing, you could always bring them by the shop for me to do some alterations. I find it so fun to see the end results and so fun trying to figure out which fabric & sewing technique would look best. It’s great to let your mind go wild sometimes. Lol….The skirt that I am wearing I made out of some beautiful Knit material. I must admit, it was a challenge when I got 2 other orders for the same skirt, but I’m happy with the results and the customers were happy too!

Stop by the Facebook shop some time, I list a few new items every week, any suggestions you may have are welcome as well! New contest coming up soon too. : )

Modest Options for Fall Colours of 2012

As you may or may not have realized, it's almost Fall. And with the seasons changing and the leaves falling, so does, guess what? Yup you guessed it, Fashion changes. And I have some connections and got the 411 on the colours that are in and happening for this fall season. So, I got to work and started stalking  following some people on Polyvore to get ideas and find outfits that would match the colours for the season! I hope you enjoy and it helps you get ideas on how to create your wardrobe for this season! I'm sure your local stores will have these colours in stock, so here are just some ideas on how you can put things together. At the shop we are going to try and use some these colours too! So be sure to check our store out too. Oh and needless to say, if you are not wearing these colours this season, that doesn't mean, you don't look great, you create a style that suits who you are and one that you are happy with. : ) I in particular love wearing red in the fall and that colour is not listed here, but I shall continue to wear red anyway!!! This post is more, to help you get ideas and creative if you wish but not a determination of what YOU HAVE TO wear this season.

And without further ado, here are the colours for fall, according to the "experts!"......

And here are some of the creations I found and created on Polyvore that have these colours! Go to Polyvore to have a better view of the items.

You Are Not Alone

This post is for you, all the back to school ladies, or just ladies that sometimes feel pressured by the world to change your convictions or faith! Stand strong in what you believe, stand true to the convictions and revelations the Lord has brought upon you through prayer and the study of His word. Sometimes it can be hard, when others are so different than you and you can’t relate to anything they say or do, and you can start to feel lonely. However, you can overcome! You don’t need to change to be accepted. Stand true to your faith and to the modesty convictions God has place on you. You don’t need to dress, act or conduct yourself like the world to reach your goals, aspirations or even friends! Be yourself, be true to the God who dwells in you. You are not alone, beautiful one.

It may seem like you are alone when no one else around you believes in what you do and sometimes you might question is all this “BE THE LIGHT” stuff really worth it? I can say, YES and also, remind you as the Lord reminded Elijah, you are not alone. When everyone else bowed to Baal and it seemed like only Elijah had enough zeal to follow the One True God and His commandments, the Lord spoke words of encouragement to him.

“So it was, when Elijah heard it, that he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. Suddenly a voice came to him, and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?”And he said, “I have been very zealous for the LORD God of hosts; because the children of Israel have forsaken Your covenant, torn down Your altars, and killed Your prophets with the sword. I alone am left; and they seek to take my life. Then the LORD said to him: “Go, return on your way to the Wilderness of Damascus; ….. Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him.”1 Kings 19:13-15

Elijah felt alone, because He had concentrated on what he saw in front of him. What he didn’t see were those 7000 in Israel who had not bowed down to Baal and where Zealous of the Lord’s commandments as well! Aside from Jesus, who fills our loneliness, Elijah had brethren whom he did not see, but were also zealously serving the Lord and not Baal, He wasn’t alone! Let me remind you ladies, you are not alone. If you ever need encouragement to go on, find your brethren, mentors, counsellors in Christ and you will see you are not alone. Someone has already gone through what you are going through and the Lord let them go through it, to be an aid for your time of need.

Stand true to your faith, to your convictions, to modesty. Be the light, be different, spread the Gospel with everything you are. Represent the most High with honor and dignity and you will be rewarded in ways you could never repay.
