Welcome to The Modest Mom Blog!
I’m living out my childhood dream-being a wife and mama. It is a full time responsibility, one that entails me daily surrounding my wants and expectations for the task at hand-loving and training five little children and being a helpmeet to my husband.
I’ve been in wedded bliss since 2002, when I gave my heart over for life to my dearest husband Sean. We were blessed to go through a godly, sweet courtship-even if it didn’t follow all the normal guidelines.
Growing up I was home schooled from K-12th grade. My sweet mother home schooled me during some of the most difficult years of her life as she was diagnosed with Lupus when I was 11. I am the last child and I have very sweet memories of spending my high school years alone with my mom during the days. My Mom went to be with her Lord in 2010, and I cherish those memories. We now homeschool our own children, using a mixture of Christian Light Education wordbooks and a Charlotte Mason approach.
When I was 9 my mom felt the Lord convicting her to start dressing more modestly. I was thrilled when she said that we were going to try wearing skirts and dresses all the time, as I already loved to run around in play dresses all day long! Once we started, we really never looked back, and I’ve been wearing skirts ever since. I don’t feel like it makes me more holy or spiritual to wear a skirt, rather it simply makes me more feminine. In a culture that is fast losing all gender differences, I want my children to clearly see the differences between men and women.
With modesty on my heart it made sense to start Deborah & Co. when I saw a need for modest skirts. I have been delighted to be a resource for so many ladies looking for modest clothing!
