What Does the Bible Say about Modesty?
It is okay for us to remind ourselves that God’s way is still the right and best way to live. God’s ideas about beauty, body image, aging, and modesty are not antiquated and irrelevant, as some people believe. We should not feel ashamed for displaying our God-given gender identity through a modest, discreet, and feminine appearance.
Mirror Image: Beautiful in God’s Sight uses biblical principles, history, and logic to explain why we ladies do not cut our hair and why we wear skirts and dresses instead of pants.
[Mirror Image] emphasizes the importance of breaking free from the pressure to conform to America’s unrealistic beauty ideal.
It emphasizes the importance of breaking free from the pressure to conform to America’s unrealistic beauty ideal. It details how the media plays a huge role in defining for us our concept of beauty, and why we should replace the world’s values with God’s values.
Just because some people challenge biblical values, redefine the roles of men and women, aggressively promote feminist ideology, erase the lines of gender distinction, and normalize gender confusion does not mean we have to do the same. God’s idea of beauty is not the world’s idea! As we fully embrace God’s idea of beauty, we discover that aging is a beautiful, natural process and modesty is God’s design. Never should we feel second-rate or unacceptable.
Mirror Image: Beautiful in God’s Sight helps Apostolic ladies identify and embrace their natural, unique, God-given beauty. By the time readers turn the last page of Mirror Image, they should be able to look into their mirrors without fixating on their flaws or feeling inferior because they do not look like someone else. They will be able to confidently say, “I am beautiful in God’s sight!”
