Welcome to The Modest Mom Blog!
I’m living out my childhood dream of being a wife and a mother. It’s a full time responsibility – one that entails me daily surrendering 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 happily married since 2002, when I gave my heart over for life to my dearest husband Sean.
I was home schooled from K-12th grade. My sweet mother taught me during some of the most difficult years of her life (she was diagnosed with lupus when I was 11). I am her youngest child and I have precious memories of spending my high school years alone with her during the daytime. My mother went to be with her Lord in 2010, but she remains an inspiration as we now homeschool our own children.
When I was 9 my mother felt the Lord convicting her to dress more modestly. I was thrilled when she said that we were going to try wearing skirts and dresses as I loved to run around in play dresses! Once we started, we never really looked back and I’ve been wearing skirts ever since. I don’t feel like it makes me more spiritual to wear a skirt; rather, it simply makes me more feminine. In a culture that depreciates the value of gender differences, I want to set a good example before my children.
With modesty on my heart, when I saw a need for modest skirts it made sense to start Deborah & Co.. I am delighted to be a resource for ladies looking for modest clothing!
