Inspiring

Really inspiring, I enjoyed it very much. Excellent message.
Especially coming on the heels of two books I happened to read this past week (The Magic Touch and Outside/inside, both by Gila Manolson), it is a very timely message and I, as a women, found it inspiring.

Love it

This song is so refreshing . I am 62 and I dance in the car to this. I saw this on Facebook and sent it to my grandchildren. It was gone before they could watch it. So happy I found it again.

awesome!!

This is awesome!! After all the garbage I have seen come out of the music industry so far this year I am thrilled to see some of the youth of our future put things into perspective for each other! Way to lead men!!!

What modesty is not

Modesty is not a question of how much skin shows. If it were, Muslim women wearing burkas would all be more modest than non-Muslim women (and men) who don't wear them.

John T. Malloy wrote a book called Dress for Success. The thrust of the book is to dress in a way that gets you favorable attention from your boss, customers, girlfriend, etc. I followed the advice and it helped me get a better job. Was I dressing modestly? NO WAY! I was dressing to be favorably noticed. So even though a button-up shirt covered slightly more skin than a tee shirt, it was less modest.



Is a person more modest in January because he wears a coat and gloves than he is in July wearing a short sleeved shirt? Is a motorcyclist wearing a leather jacket more modest than a pedestrian wearing a cotton shirt?



Something(s) to think about . . .
