Are you aging? Or do you prefer to call it maturing like I do?
Maturing happens to us all. I have chosen to embrace it and do what I can instead of wringing my hands and crying. Frankly, when I stopped coloring my prematurely gray hair, it was a compelling force in my life. It’s been incredibly freeing to be who I really am….

While summer is an appreciated and welcomed relief from the blustery cold of winter, it does bring a different kind of difficulty. The summer months draw attention to our universal struggle with biblical sexuality, and the modesty debates take a prominent role in our conversations.
Our dear friend Johanna coined a phrase that has stuck with us (we love it!), and now we think of our plus size friends as ‘elegantly curved’! We have many beautiful, elegantly-curved friends created by God, each wonderfully and fearfully made.
As I get older and undergo the inevitable changes in my body and shape, I find it is harder to find beautifully-fitting, classy, but modest clothes for less. Still, I desire to make modesty and femininity attractive instead of frumpy, so I persevere. At whatever age we are, we must still discover for ourselves what it means to represent the Lord as His ambassadors to the world….
Wearing something feminine to the store may not the norm anymore, but I’ve had more doors held open for me and am given more respect than if I was wearing jeans and a tee. (PS, I do wear jeans, too).
Please be patient with me as I update this series… it is a work in progress!
