    Shopping Tips For a Modest Wardrobe

    Summer is here! As temperatures rise, it seems the hemlines of all our favorite pieces are rising right along with them.
    Staying trendy but modest can feel like trying to get a camel to go through the eye of a needle. Especially since the clothing racks at all our favorite stores are now being filled with crop tops, barely there shorts, and skin-tight bodycons.
    Is it challenge? Yes
    Can it be done? Absolutely.
    Remember, we can do all things through Christ, Sis.

    You’ve probably been wondering how to slay at church while also avoiding these looks from Sister Charlene.
    Here are some shopping tips for a modest wardrobe.

     

    1.Shop in the Men’s section

    Admit it, you are completely guilty of stealing your dad’s or boyfriend’s shirt at least once or twice in your lifetime and passing it off as your own. Remember how soft and comfortable it felt?
    Since we are beholden to the ten commandments, perhaps instead of robbing your hubby or dad of his favorite button down, next time just head to your favorite store and check out what’s trending in the men’s section.
    Your personal style will play a factor in the pieces you’re drawn to but whether your style is street, preppy, classic, or hipster, there is something for everyone.
    By nature, garments made for the fellas have a looser, more relaxed fit. This is perfect for creating those effortless but contemporary looks. Not only will the clothes give you a more modest fit, but in general men clothing are less expensive and made from better material.
    Joggers, button downs, graphic tees, jeans, and slacks are among some of the things that you can snatch in the men’s sections. Assuming that you are not trying to achieve the tomboy look, you may want to add some accessories to add some feminine touches to your outfits. For example if you are wearing a men’s button down, try pairing it with a cute chain link clutch, some necklaces, and heels.

     

    2.Shop a Couple Sizes Too Big

    Maybe shopping in the men’s section is a bit too daring for you.  If you don’t feel comfortable shopping in areas where you might be the only one with two X chromosomes, that’s okay. Stick to the female section but shop sizes that are bigger than what you would normally wear.
    Let’s say you are a size small and you see this really cute dress that you really love but it’s too tight and short. Instead of just re-racking this dress in disappointment and defeat, look for the same dress two sizes up.
    This trick is my favorite modest hack. I am a medium and I love purchasing XL or sometimes even XXL items. If you are going to try this trick, be aware that this works best for shirts and dresses. Proceed with caution when buying oversized pants lest they fall off during an intense praise break.

    With this trick, you get to wear all of your favorite styles while still staying within modest boundaries. Plus, nothing screams effortlessly chic more than an oversized shirt paired with some simple jeans or even an oversized dressed. Talk about looking like you just came off a runway!
    When trying this remember that not all oversized clothes are created alike. Be particularly conscious of how the pieces fit around your arms and shoulder area in order to make sure you are not sacrificing style in the name of modesty. A good rule of thumbs is to stick to only two or three sizes too big. Anything bigger can make you look like you just wrapped yourself in some rags before walking out the door.

     

    3.Layering Is Your Friend.

    Every fashionista knows that layering is always a great way to spruce up any outfit with some added personality and dimension. Not only that, but layering also gives you a chance to redeem pieces that would otherwise have to be thrown in the lake of fire.
    Here’s a basic rule of thumbs to go by: if you are wearing something really tight, or borderline too short, layer it with an outer layer to diverge the attention. You can throw on a kimono, cardigan, blazer, shawl, or duster.
    If you are wearing something that is revealing too much skin, particularly in the chest and shoulder area, layer it with an inner layer to cover up some flesh. You can prime it with a basic tee underneath, a bell-sleeved blouse, a chic turtleneck, or a collared shirt among many other options.
    These are just a few tips and tricks to keep in mind when you are trying to honor the Lord with your clothes. It’s completely okay to love fashion and have a desire to wear cute clothes but let it end there. The clothes you wear should never be inspired to highlight or bring ungodly attention to your body and with these shopping tips for a modest wardrobe, you can avoid that.

  • “God, my God! Why would you abandon me now? Why do you remain distant, refusing to answer my tearful cries in the day and my desperate cries for your help in the night? I can’t stop sobbing. Where are you, my God? – Psalms 22: 1-2 For many of us, these word are more than […]

    My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?

    “God, my God!
    Why would you abandon me now?
    Why do you remain distant,
    refusing to answer my tearful cries in the day
    and my desperate cries for your help in the night?
    I can’t stop sobbing. Where are you, my God? – Psalms 22: 1-2

    For many of us, these word are more than just a verse in the bible- it is a line straight from our real life conversations with God.

    Maybe you’re going through a financial crisis where you’re at an all time low.

    The doctor’s reports keep getting progressively worse.

    You’re dealing with the lost of loved one.

    You’re marriage or relationship is falling apart

    Or you’re consumed with failure, disappointment, or fear …

    I don’t know what your specific situation is. I don’t know in what ways you feel like the Lord has turned a deaf ear to you as you cry out in agony.

    But Jesus does . . .

    And he can completely relate.

    Matter of fact, he moaned those very same words, My God, My God Why have you forsaken me?, while hanging on the cross.

    Yes, even the perfect son of God understands what it feels like to feel that the father has turned a blind eye to his pain. The craziest part is that Jesus was in the perfect and absolute will of the father yet he still suffered and endured pain..

    Therefore, don’t always think that your suffering is punishment for a mistake you’ve done and never count it as evidence of the absence of God. Rather, consider it evidence of your closeness to Christ.

    Romans 8:17 tells us that if we share in his sufferings, we may also share in his Glory. The pain and discomfort you feel now, is nothing compared to the blessings, power, and nearness to God that you’ll reap through this.

    Shortly after saying those words death overtook Jesus and He found himself in Hell… If he thought the cross was a bad place to be, he probably felt even worse there …

    Now, things may have gotten worse for him for a moment but because he continued on fighting and refused to give up, not only did he find victory in his darkest place, but God also resurrected Him from that situation.

    And God can do the same in your life.

    This is not to convince you that everything will magically become great tomorrow- I can’t know if that is true… What I do know though is that God is still with you, he has not abandoned you, and he remains close to his brokenhearted.

    Just as he was there fighting with Jesus in Hell as his situation grew worse, so is he there fighting for you in your situation.

    Just as he resurrected Jesus from the grave, so will he resurrect those dead things in your life where you feel like all hope is lost. . .

    We can’t judge Christ’s story from that one chapter in the bible where he was seemingly defeated. Likewise, don’t judge your story based on this one gloomy chapter in your life. This is only a mere part of the whole story and there will be many other chapters that will prove God’s glory in your life.

    Don’t believe the lying voice that is telling you that God has given up on you, changed his mind about you, got tired of you, or for some reason or another decided to walk away from you.

    Maybe other people in your past decided one day to just abandon you, or cut you off… but that is not the type of God we serve.

    “God is not human, that he should lie, nor a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?”- Numbers 23:19

    Surely God will finish and complete every good work that he has started in you. Just keep pushing as He fights for you beloved daughter of Christ!

    Reach Records Signs First Female Artist, Wande

    History is being made right before our eyes! During the Orlando stop of their Unashamed 2019 Tour, Lecrae and the all-man tribe of Reach Records, welcomed the first woman to be signed to Reach Records, Wande Isola.

     

    Though the signing marks a new season in the life of the 23- year old, Wande is no stranger to media or music. She started making Youtube videos when she was just in high school. During college she got an internship with the popular music platform Rapzilla where she had the opportunity to interview prominent Christian artist.

     

    From there, she landed another internship, this time at Reach Records. After falling in love with her value to the company, they offered her a job upon graduation as an A&R. Because she knew that if they found out she was a rapper, they wouldn’t hire her as an intern, she chose to withhold that information from them. “I decided to just let it casually come up in conversations,” She said.

     

    Being a servant where you know God called you to be a leader, wasn’t always easy. “It was a slap in the face when, as an A&R they told me to go look for a female artist,” She admitted in an interview with TRACKSTARZ.

    Courtesy of Wande’s Facebook.

     

    “I knew God told me He wanted me to be an artist. So much so that He told me that if you don’t do it, I will replace you and He showed me in a dream of me being replaced. From their I had to keep myself motivated.”

     

     

    Wande’s success story is a beautiful testimony of God’s faithfulness. It also serves to reminds us to be faithful in the seasons that He is calling us to, and in His perfect timing, He will open up the perfect doors.

    Wande’s first single as an artist with Reach is now available.

    Bethel’s Amanda Lindsey Cook Releases New Album ‘House on a Hills’

    After a long hiatus, Bethel Music’s Amanda Lindsey Cook’s has finally satiated the longing of faithful fans by releasing House On A Hill, available now.

    House On A Hill is the product of Cook withdrawing away for two months into a secluded house in the wooded hills of Nashville, Tennessee. If retreating into the hills was done to allow Amanda to connect and process her innermost emotions, while also connecting with the creator,  the unfeigned, and raw lyrics of the album’s track, makes it evident that it this was a success.

    Not only does the album tells the song of a gracefully broken and vulnerable Amanda, but listeners are able to hear the process of God renewing her mind and spirit. As listeners, we in turn are also able to find renewing in our minds and spirit as well.

    In summary,this album is the soundtrack of rest- Rest in the revelation of God’s anew mercies, and his unfailing, unrelenting love for us.

     

    “I think it’s really essential to create rhythms of rest. There are some things that only actually ever happen when we slow down long enough to be still and let everything catch up to us. It’s the wound in us that wants to be healed that’s trying to catch up,” said Cook. “This record, in particular, came at a really crucial moment. One of my producers basically said to me, ‘I think you need to write your way through it. I think you need to sing your way through it.'”

     

    Amanda sings on the title track House on a Hill:

    “Some things you can’t know till you’re still In the silence Let your spinning thoughts slow down In the stillness Things have a way of working out … Allow me to introduce Myself again I’m the Love you used to think could not exist I’m as sure as where you’re standing and as free as the wind You don’t have to reach for me, cause this is where I am.”

     

    These lyrics testify of just how potent the spirit of God is throughout this album. Listening to it is like breathing in a breath of fresh air, or rather, like receiving a fresh touch from God.

    House on a Hill is one of the top worship albums of the year. This is truly a great album and a moving and prayerful worship experience,” noted New Release Today.
