I finished reading this fabulous book that has truly convicted me about fashion…attire…clothing for women…for girls…for even men and boys!
This is my conclusion: I thought I knew and understood DRESSING WITH DIGNITY but this book convicted me to take it up a notch.
I discovered some amazing things about how the fashion industry has been influenced over the years. I learned the true evil that is underlined with intent to strip us women from our dignity….our true femininity. You may find my use of evil as strong but when I read things like:
“Religion does not fear the daggers point; but it can vanish under corruption. Let us not grow tired of corruption; we may use a pretext, such as sport, hygiene, health resorts. It is necessary to corrupt, that our boys and girls practice nudism in dress. To avoid too much reaction, one would have to progress in a methodical manner: first undress up to the elbow; then up to the knees; then arms and legs completely uncovered; later, the upper part of the chest, the shoulders, etc. etc.”
This was taken from a Freemason publication! I’m not lying! Colleen Hammond
has it quoted and referenced in her book.
Things we may not even think about….
And it further convicted me to continue to battle for my dynamic daughters virtue….her morality….
I will continue to build her armor. I will continue to help and guide her toward Godly choices, even if it may feel like she is swimming against the stream.

So as I head into holy week I will live this thought I posted on Facebook from a private group I am apart of called Fitness~Food~Faith:
I love this simple prayer from day one of the Made to Crave devotional!
This prayer is about more than food! It is about asking God to help you make changes in any and all areas of your life that need tweaking!
You know what is even greater?!
Be strong, courageous, and firm,
Fear not nor be in terror before them,
for it is the Lord, you God who goes with you;
HE WILL NOT FAIL YOU OR FORSAKE YOU!!! (ok I took liberty with the bold )
….but isn’t that perfect….when we are asking God to help us make changes…to help us be strong or bold….to do something that may be uncomfortable or even foreign to us…..HE is not saying we have to do it alone….HE IS SAYING TRUST HIM! HE IS THERE WITH US!
Let’s enter into Holy Week with boldness….with conviction….with change!
…change of heart,
…change of mind,
….change of spirit!
Please share with me your thoughts! I love to hear other points of views, insights, encouragement.
We are all in this big world together….as a tribe…as a family…and we need to help each other grow in our faith…whether it is growth in:
Okay so I enjoy using words that start with F….I can’t help it….FrickWrites is full of fun play on words!
Have a glorious day!
