Why You Don’t Need to Post Swimsuit or Lingerie Photos to be Body-Positive

There’s quite a body-positive movement on social media these days. Girls and women of all shapes, sizes and colors are posting swimsuit or lingerie photos of themselves and in the captions, sharing about their relationship with their body image in the name of body-positivity. It is a beautiful sight to see a woman accepting her figure, dimples and curves and often inspires me to do...

Peace in the Storm

By: Kendra McClelland Picture yourself getting ready for a formal event with all your best girl friends. You gather hours before you need to leave to allow for spontaneous dance parties, light snacking, and welcomed distractions. Once you’re ready to go, you step outside, and there’s violent gusts of wind tossing your hair like crashing waves. Suddenly, your perfectly curled hair looks like a tornado...

God Doesn’t Do Flaws

By: Alle Roley I started questioning for the first time why God made me the way He did when I was in sixth grade. I was one of the tallest girls in my class [I haven’t grown an inch since middle school] and I was also what a mild-mannered person might call a lil’ chunky. I didn’t see anything wrong with the way I was...

Identity Theft

By: Sara Barratt “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Imagine a world where roses were called skunks and skunks, roses. Can you? Yeah, neither can I. While I understand the point William Shakespeare was making in this oft-quoted line from “Romeo and Juliet”, a rose is synonymous for its beauty and sweet smell that we can’t imagine it being called anything...

Stop and Smell the Flowers

By: Tekoa Manning It finally happened last year– I went to look in the mirror and saw my mother. I thought about how swiftly life can zoom past while we are in the fast lane, but when we move over to the slow lane we get a glimpse of the rearview mirror. Flowers and quilts come to mind. The next time you pass a flower...

Because You Are Loved

By: Juliandra Durkin I first heard this poem at a Wonderfully Made event when I was in college. Sitting outside on the lawn, one of the girls at the end of the meeting asked if she could share a poem that meant a lot to her. I remember my eyes stinging a bit with tears because the words were meaningful and pressed on my heart....

Bikini Bod and Freedom

By: Charmaine Porter Y’all modesty is frustrating! This is the one TRUTH that everyone seems to skip over when they talk about how great modesty is and why we should strive for it. I work for a purity ministry and we believe in modesty because it’s important to God, but very rarely will anyone say this – modesty ain’t no joke! It’s tough! And it’s...

Growing with Purpose

By: Kate Rapier There is this tree right outside of my front window. A wall of trees actually. They are big, lush, green trees. Not evergreens, but in the spring and summer months they are big, vibrant, beauitiful trees. I apologize that I do not know the proper name for these guys, but botany has never been my strong suit. All I know is that...

5 Modesty Myths and Cute Summer Styles

By: Danielle Kingsley “I want women to be modest in their appearance. They should wear decent and appropriate clothing and not draw attention to themselves by the way they fix their hair or by wearing gold or pearls or expensive clothing. For women who claim to be devoted to God should make themselves attractive by the good things they do.” I Timothy 2:9-10 (NLT) I...

I Want to be Beautiful

By: Lauren Goderwis “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body,“ (1 Corinthians 6:19- 20). This verse popped up earlier this week. At first, I didn’t really think too much about what it...

Turtles and Tamar

By: Tekoa Manning Everything God created was designed with a covering. Trees have bark to protect their sap and spices. Many animals like lobsters, crabs, and turtles, are encased with their own suit of armor. We humans have our own casings as well. A turtle is designed with a shell that is attached to its spine and its rib cage. A turtle is naked even...

by Alyssa Bethke [Photo Credit] “We as women have the privilege of making things beautiful.” The sentence rolled off of my mentor’s lips. The world stopped around me. I let the words sink deep down into the very core of my heart. My mind started reeling, “Beauty. I get to make this world more beautiful. I get to be a apart of God’s redemption plan.” My...

As I age and learn more about life, I am able to genuinely enjoy and appreciate God’s amazing creativity and general ability. We walked through rooms and rooms of underwater creatures.
