In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. - Matthew 5:16
I just adore this verse. It sums up perfectly how I want to live. I want to be that light that gives glory to God in all that I do... that includes the way I present myself to the world! So, how can I do that?
Today, I'm sharing my 3 simple ways:
Show God's Love Through Attitude and Actions.
Dress in a Way That Pleases God.
Don't worry, I'm not here to tell you you HAVE to wear skirts 24/7, can't cut your hair or wear a tank top... When it comes to modesty, there are a million different answers as to what should be considered modest and what should not... and you have to find that line for yourself. Personally, I prefer skirts for comfort, but wear them only 75% of the time. I wear thicker tank tops on occasions, but avoid spaghetti straps, halters or sleeveless clothes for the most part. Cleavage? Not for me. And if it's too short to allow me to get down on the floor and play with my kids? Not going to be appropriate. Again, your comfort levels may vary from my own and that's okay, but I encourage you to consider what your clothing portrays before choosing those pieces, and ask whether or not that is the image you want to portray as a light for Christ. (Candance Cameron Bure has some great thoughts on modesty in her book Dancing Through Life!)
Wear Your Faith.
The first two steps are a bit more subtle, but this one is all about displaying your faith proudly no matter where you go! Of course, there are many great t-shirts out there with great messages to shout to the world...but I'm not much for t-shirts myself. Instead, I love mixing my faith into my regular fall wardrobe with great accessories like jewelry! Perhaps the best thing about jewelry is that you can find styles to go with whatever your tastes are. There are simple pieces- elegant and delicate. But for me, I love BOLD! I love pieces that stand out and finish any outfit perfectly.
The new fall collection from Family Christian is perfect! Take a look:
I love that these pieces are beautiful, trendy and let me boldly display my faith, while keeping my own style! And for those that prefer a more subtle look, there are certainly options for you too! You can see it all and connect with Family Christian at the links below:
