The Modest Movement was founded in the summer of 2015. I kept feeling these promptings from the Holy Spirit telling me, "Modesty is beauty." I had no idea what it meant. I believed it, as I was raised to be modest...but I didn't know it would become something bigger than my own experience. I was sitting alone in my room one night, during a very difficult separation in my previous marriage, and as I grabbed my notebook God began to download into my heart this ministry. I wrote down everything that came to mind, looked it over in amazement, and turned that page for almost two years. I knew I wasn't ready.
This ministry is more than clothing choices, it's about the core of the woman, where her heart is, and what she believes about God and herself. I suffered many years with low self-esteem and body image issues due to the lack of parental connection growing up and media influences. Through my studies and counseling, I have learned how much interpersonal relationships during the most intimate time of our lives can shape adult decisions. My hope is to introduce Jesus Christ to broken and hurting women, He is the Source and Healer of our scars.
To help combat the body image and low self-esteem epidemic, I became a Certified Christian Body Image & Self-Esteem Coach through The Character and Self-Esteem Institute; an internationally accredited training program. Please visit my socials to learn more about me!
