Where Have True Ladies Gone? A Letter To Christian Young Women

On September 6, 1620 the Mayflower set sail for the new world. An important decision had come to these departing families as to whether or not women should make the long and difficult voyage. In the end, eighteen married women joined their husbands and children in the dangerous journey; three of whom were in their last trimester of pregnancy. Seventy – eight percent of these women would die that first winter.
Why did they go? It is because they were real women, strong women, and God fearing women- ladies of virtue. They loved their husbands, children, and Creator more than their own lives and sought His will above what was comfortable or safe. They made the journey so that while they may die, others might live and serve God Almighty without fear.

Family Pictures

My family rarely sits down and takes a family picture. Usually it's only once a year for our Christmas cards but our Nana told us all she wanted for her birthday was a picture of our family(we don't live near each other :(
It took us a few times to get it right but it was allot of fun! I love being apart of such an awesome family!

This was our best one! It's hard to take a picture of 7 people with a 3 year old.

Individuals...I like theses. We thought we would go ahead since we were out there.

Cutest little boy!
Handsome :D
She's so pretty. My best friend.
And me...

Seeking Modesty and Femininty Part Seven

Saturday, the last day I'll be posting pictures. I really enjoyed doing it and will continue to wear skirts often. I hope many of you will do this 7 day challenge and I'll be sure to look at all your pictures. Remember as theses summer months come to fear the Lord and be mindful of our dress as we seek to please and honor God rather than ourselves(man).

I got my skirt from My shirt was from Old Navy. What was really exciting about this shirt was I saw it at the beginning of last summer for over $20. Later that year I went shopping and found this one on a sale rack for $4! Taking the time to go through last years stuff is so worth it!

My hair doesn't curl well but I try. I wanted to try something new.

Seeking Modesty and Femininty Part Six


I worked as a secretary at our church again today. I tried to dress nicely but wore my hair up because I live in the south and it's REALLY hot here. It was fun and Mrs. Missy, the job is going great. I love it! Still I"m looking forward to next week being slower and just spending time with Mommy getting ready for vacation.

The skirt was from the Children's Gap store. The shirt is from Kohls. If you have not noticed I really like that store. The shoes are Old Navy.
