In this third and final installment of our series on Modesty, we take on two of the most common questions we've received on the topic:

  • “How women and men teach their daughters -and sons- about modesty?”
  • "How can we biblically deal with women and girls dressing immodestly at church?"
  • I you missed Parts 1 and 2, here they are:

    In Part Two of our three-part series on the topic of modesty, three questions you might be asking: Does biblical modesty come with "rules," like skirt height? How should moms and dads go about teaching modesty to their children? And what do you say in situations at your church where a sister in the Lord is not dressing modestly? Michelle and Amy seek the wisdom of Scripture to provide practical applications. Don't forge...

    When it comes to modesty and the Bible, we often want "rules" and easy steps to follow. While the world gives us catalogs and commercials and fashion magazines, the Bible gives us general principles about subjective issues that we must wisely apply in our cultural context as we seek to please Him.This is the first in our three-part series on Modesty.

    What is the difference between God's miracles and mysticism? Amy and Michelle discuss a growing trend in the church that borrows mystical elements from Buddhism and Hinduism and melds or syncretizes them into Christian practices. Mysticism in the church is as old as the church itself, and has been rightly called out over the centuries as unbiblical. But it is a trend in our time as many Christians are now bringing in these prac...

    Persecution is ugly. Canadian Pastor James Coates has been imprisoned for breaking the covid-19 "law," and has now been denied bail. His crime? Holding church services and being faithful to the Lord. The GraceLife Church pastor's trial will be in early May, and until then he will not be able to see his wife Erin or their young boys.  

    It's a heartbreaking story. Michelle and Amy asked our Facebook, Twitter, and In...

    Did you know that the nine "types" in the enneagram actually came from an occultist and his "spirit guide?" The popularity of the enneagram teachings in mainline and mega churches has exploded in the past year as more celebrity preachers are giving this unbiblical trend a green light.

    Amy and Michelle sat down with our special guest, Marcia Montenegro, co-author of the book, Richard Rohr and the Enneagram Secret. M...

    It hurts the entire Body of Christ when leaders fail. It can feel like a gut punch. The investigative report from Ravi Zacharias International Ministries has concluded, and it's worse than anyone could imagine.  Amy and Michelle discuss the lessons learned from evangelical news stories of leaders caught in sin. Much more than a cautionary "what not to do," these heartbreaking events can teach us about Scripture, about G...

    "You can be anything," says the world, whenever a woman breaks a perceived glass ceiling. Not only do people celebrate her bravery, they elevate her to a role model for other young girls. This happened when Vice President Kamala Harris was elected and took office.

    But for Christian women and girls, it takes a lot more than two X chromosomes and a fancy job title to qualify as a role model. Michelle and Amy discuss how toda...

    Think 2020 was a not-so-fun year, and 2021 is just more of the same? God's Word tells us that for Christians, persecution and trials are still to come. How in the world are we to endure? Some would say that we should prepare to bug out, head for the hills or start stockpiling food and weapons. But is that really what the Bible says we should be doing? No!

    Words stand for something, right? The words we use in our Christian faith used to be fairly clear cut, but over the last few years some definitions seem to have become somewhat murky: evangelism, preaching, and how Christian women biblically fit into that equation.

    The Bible is supernatural. It is complete in itself and needs no other books or commentaries to supplement it. But how do we study it? One of the kindnesses God has shown us as unique people made in His image is that He hasn’t said there’s only one “right way” to spend time with Him in His Word. There are lots of “right ways,” and we're going to share those "hows." Warning: there are a few wrong turns we want to help yo...

    How should a Christian relate to someone in their lives who is obviously living in sexual sin, without appearing to condone this marriage? Thankfully, God does not leave us without answers. As with every other issue in life, our thinking, our words, and our actions must be shaped by and in submission to the authority of Scripture. Not public opinion. Not political agendas. Not our own personal feelings, opinions, and experiences. S...
