You guys loved Monday’s Post: Why I Hate Talking About Modesty (And Why I Do It Anyway).
We are all very messed up. :)
To help fix that, I’ve made the following resource available on a “pay what you will” scale (what it’s worth to you and what you can afford).
[ ORDER HERE ]
While you may think of modesty as a pattern for behavior and dress, it’s actually a virtue grown in a God-shaped heart. Modesty isn’t so much about sex and shame as it is about gentleness and selflessness.
This resource will help you reframe the way you understand and talk about modesty.
What you won’t find here are articles about who’s to blame for our culture’s problems or exactly what people should and shouldn’t wear. What you will find is a helpful definition of modesty that reflects God’s priorities and a way to teach modesty that mirrors God’s methods.
We will discuss clothing, but only as it relates to and reflects the state of our hearts. This discussion will encourage personal introspection and application.
What you’ll find in the bundle:
Four brand new essays (1000-1500 words):
- What Modesty Is (And What It Isn’t)
- How to Cultivate A Modest Heart
- I Don’t Want To Be Submissive
- Why Getting Dressed Is So Hard (Hint: It Has To Do With Your Heart)
Two brand new long-form essays (~5000 words):
- Why We Wear Clothes
- Branded (a reflection on clothing, modesty, and idolatry)
Five to ten of my previously published articles and essays on modesty-related topics from magazines and other venues (all currently unavailable online)
A link to an interview about my 365 day experiment in radical modesty, including a new follow-up discussion of how the project has shaped me two years later
A podcast interview between my husband Justin Gerhardt and I on the topic
An annotated bibliography of modesty-related sources
An outline for those interested in teaching modesty via an inside-out approach:
- I’ll include a single session outline, a 3-session outline, and a syllabus and helps for teaching a 13 week course.
All material will be helpful for men and women although some discussions may be more relevant to women.
