Fashion Belle's Favorite Modesty Resources

Modesty resources for Seventh-Day Adventists

This website appears to be the most comprehensive hub of online resources available about feminine modesty from a Seventh-Day Adventist perspective.

Modest, book from a Christian perspective

Christian pastors R.W. Glenn and Tim Challies address modesty as an issue of the heart for both women and men in this 86-page booklet. Clothing rules are purposely avoided in favor of defining modesty as a spiritual virtue enabled by the grace of God that motivates outward choices of dress. Not all readers will agree with the authors' assertion that the acceptable level of modesty in clothing coverage varies according to culture, which they admit requires some exceptions in order to "object conscientiously to immodesty when we see it" (p. 49). This booklet would be useful to pastors preparing to speak to their congregations about modesty and for encouraging Christian women who dress and act on the liberal side of Western cultural standards toward more moderate choices.

Practical Helps for Modest Dressing by Mary Van Nattan Stephens

Mary Van Nattan Stephens writes, "We are trying to provide Bible-based helps and studies for home makers." Her conservative list of clothing guidelines presents unique suggestions for staying comfortable in various weather conditions, especially for staying warm in cold weather while wearing dresses. This is a quaint site, but it is one of Fashion Belle's favorites!
