Why I Make the Choice

'A wise man once appraised the value of modesty. He declared, “When virtue and modesty enlighten her charms, the luster of a beautiful woman is brighter than the stars of heaven, and the influence of her power it is in vain to resist.”

'The weight that modesty carries is absolutely incredible, but to live modestly is a lot more than just dressing appropriately; it is a living, breathing, principle that demands nurturing and constant attention. That nurturing comes by the way you live your life; what you say and do, and how you treat others in the world around you. Modesty shows a person’s love and respect for their God, themselves, and the people they are around. Although the price of living modestly is difficult to pay, I wouldn’t choose to live any other way.'
