Modest is Hottest

Dress & Appearance

Senior Prom
“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? . . . The temple of God is holy, which temple ye are” (1 Corinthians 3:16–17).

I proved the impossible I found the end of TWO rainbows
on my mission :)
 Trying to maintain modesty today is like trying to find the end of a rainbow. It may seem impossible, but it is not, I proved that on a preparation day in New York. When you serve a mission you get to pick a mission scripture for your plaque that hangs in your home chapel. The scripture I picked is found in the bible Luke 1:37 .
"For with God nothing shall be aimpossible."
I can honestly tell you that that is true! If we put ALL of our TRUST in GOD anything is possible, and if it be his will. When we trust him to bring us good looking young men to date if we dress modestly it is going to happen. If we choose to dress modestly to a School dance you can still be made Homecoming Queen. We always hear how people will judge us because of the way we dress. We have to remember though, that in the end, the only judgement that matters in the end is the final one in front of God.

Queen Kayla and Max Prom 2010 

“Maintain high standards of modesty for all occasions. Do not lower your standards to draw attention to your body or to seek approval from others. True disciples of Jesus Christ maintain the Lord’s standard regardless of current fashions or pressure from others” (True to the Faith, 107).

Converse all the way!!!
Someone I look to as an example is my younger brother Max who is serving a mission in Argentina. For his senior year he wanted to take a girl to prom. His biggest concern was if the girl was going to dress modestly or not. It was something he had considered before asking any girl out to a dance. It was not because the girl was going against his standards but because he wanted to keep himself out of the way of temptation. He ended up taking a girl to the prom who dressed modestly by her own choice. Like I said, even the modest girls can win, his date had won Prom Queen that night. He was so relieved that she had CHOSEN to dress modestly because they ended up being in a lot of pictures.

Remember your dress and appearance shows a great deal about you, its not what people think when they see you but it's what would God think if he saw me!?
It's okay to have personality but make sure it is one that would welcome at the feet of God.
