Maidens for Modesty - Values

As Maidens for Modesty, what are our values?
  • We believe in dressing in modest apparel, as it says in 1 Timothy 2:8-9 - "I also want a women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God."
  • We believe in saving our bodies and not exposing them to others, but protecting what God has given us.
  • We believe in being modest in the way we act, talk, walk, and carry ourselves.
  • We know that true modesty begins in the heart, and is an attitude more than what we wear.
  • We believe in behaving discretely and with modesty.
  • However, our clothing usually displays our true self, and we believe in dressing modestly to be a witness to others.
  • We know that modesty isn't a legalistic set of rules, but rather guidelines to help determine what we should wear.
  • We believe in presenting discretion and dignity in what we wear and how we behave- "Like a gold ring in a pig's snout is a beautiful women who shows no discretion." ~ Proverbs 11:22
  • We believe in helping to protect men from the visual attack by dressing modestly as their sisters-in-Christ
  • We believe in dressing in a way that glorifies God, not our body.
  • We believe that modesty and purity are always in fashion!
  • We believe that modesty isn't old-fashioned - you don't have to wear colonial dresses (like the ones in the picture) or have waist-length hair to be modest!
  • We believe that fear of the Lord is the most beautiful thing -“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” ~ Proverbs 31:30
