I was inspired by the last Feminine Friday outfit that featured a denim skirt and this cardigan. I decided to wear this chambray skirt as it fits better than my other denim skirts right now.

I’ve been thinking a lot about loveliness lately. The world around us sends a message that we should look sexy, or try to keep up with the Jones next door.

I long for loveliness, whether it is my house being neat and tidy (not necessarily expensive furniture, neat and tidy looks lovely to me!), my homeschool days flowing smoothly, my relationships with my husband and children flourishing and growing, and yes – lovely outfits that reflect the feminine woman I hope to be.

I don’t feel like it’s wrong to pursue loveliness, as the Bible talks about thinking on things that are lovely!

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things arehonest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8.

We just have to balance wanting to pursue loveliness with knowing that the Christian should not be surprised if trials and persecutions come.

 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; knowing this, that the trying of your faith worth patience.”  James 1:2-3

The Lord made so many lovely things. Think of the flowers, the beautiful sky, newborn babies…there are so many gorgeous things straight from creation!

I want to pass on the gift of loveliness to my children. One way is to teach them to be content in the little things. We are going to start this brand new study together called “A Content Heart, Finding Godly Contentment in a Me-First World.” It was just released and is almost 50% off, only through today!

A Content Heart

This study comes at the perfect time, so many children struggle being content as they walk through the stores this time of year! I’m really looking forward to doing this with my children!

  1. That study looks like such a beautiful thing! I love your heart to pass on both an appreciation for God’s creation and a longing to see more of it with a gratitude and contentment for what you already have. Your kids are lucky to have you as a mama! 🙂

  2. I love this post – i have started to wear more skirts and dresses in the last 2 years and i do wear pants twice a week and i do wear some lounge/pj/track pants around the house too. I started to wear more skirts/dresses as i have nerve damage and most pants that are “in” are not a good mix so i find leggings with skirts/dresses much better for pain and i also started to dress for me and not what is in too it took me a while but i now feel more myself and better mental health wise as i am not hurting myself by trying to be what i am not.

  3. Thank you for another great post. I really like you blog, because I get a lot of inspiration for modest outfits and living as a christian woman. I think it is quite hard to find modest outfits, but also people who have the same believes as I do. So thank you very much for this lovely blog full of ideas and inspiration and a place where I don’t feel awkward for my christian moral values. 🙂
