Summer Book Study!

Hello ladies!

It’s been a while, I know! I’ve been down a computer or the last several weeks and am hoping to buy a new one soon!

Anywho…

I have some SUPER DUPER exciting news!

You remember the eBook that I wrote and published earlier this year?

Well, I am going to be hosting a book study on it this summer and I want YOU–yes beautiful girl, you, the one reading this right now–to join us!

Here is the poster with the information! Please feel free to share it with your friends and invite them to join us!

Summer Book Study

Here’s the thing, I know that summer is all about fun and you don’t necessarily want to be stuck for hours and hours reading a book. Well, I have news for you! Each chapter in the ‘Unfading Beauty: Becoming Women of Biblical Beauty’ eBook is short and the perfect kind of summer study! 

Each chapter has some questions at the end, but rather than doing all of them, two or three key questions from each chapter will be selected to discuss so that we can gain the absolute most from each chapter/topic in the book! 

I am also SO excited for the beautiful community that we get to build through it through the group set up on Facebook!

So, download your FREE copy of the eBook, request to be pat of our Facebook Group and then tell your friends and lets all get ready and excited (I already am!) to grow in our relationships with Jesus together!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

Four!

Four. That’s how many years Unfading Beauty Ministries has been operating! FOUR!

Yep, today is Unfading Beauty Ministries’ birthday, and I am so excited about it! 

Last year, on our third birthday, I gave you the back story of Unfading Beauty Ministries. This year, I’m going to reflect on this past year-more specifically, the last 10 months.

As many of you know, I went to Montana for an internship this last summer. One of the big things that God was speaking into my life about is about taking Faith-Steps. 

So, in September, I decided to take that faith-step I had been getting nudged about. I changed the name from Unfading Beauty to Unfading Beauty Ministries and then upgraded the blog address and started to become more serious about everything. I created an Instagram account, Facebook account and YouTube channel for the ministry.

I then embarked upon writing the Unfading Beauty Book and started planning the Heart of Modesty project (more to come on that within the net month!)

In my personal life, I’ve been getting ready to head to college in the Autumn-which is both exciting and a little scary! 

All in all, I can’t believe it’s been four years

This ministry started as such a little thing-and I truly never thought it would grow to what it has! 

As I write, there is a Bible verse that comes to mind:

“If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones…” Luke 16:10

So, as we celebrate this milestone, I would like to encourage all of you, no matter how little the task God has given you seems, do well in it. Give it your all! If you aren’t a faithful steward of the little bit God has given you, how can you be faithful in the much?

Finally, to celebrate, let me know how Unfading Beauty Ministries has touched your life!

God’s Faithfulness. Presenting: A New Light on Modesty

I am so continually in awe of God’s goodness and faithfulness! To be honest, I never ever thought that the dreams I had for Unfading Beauty Ministries would ever actually come true, but here I am planning a HUGE project that is literally changing the way I think and look at things. Not only in the knowledge I’m gaining from all of my reading and research of the Bible, but also how much my trust in God has grown. He is providing one thing after the other for this project and it is coming together so perfectly!

One of the verses that I have continually prayed over Unfading Beauty Ministries is Proverbs 16:3 “Commit your actions to the LORD, and your plans will succeed.” 

I remember the very first day Unfading Beauty Ministries was set up. A good friend set everything up for me, and everything was ready for me to write my little heart out.

But, before I even wrote my first article, I knew that I needed to dedicate this new endeavor to God and to his Kingdom Building. That he would have his will and way through this new Unfading Beauty blog.

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t fully committed to writing on here at first. In fact, it wasn’t until May of 2016 (approximately three years into this blog) that I realized that God had given me something that I needed to be a better steward of.

One of the dreams that I’ve always had, is that I would be able to partner with other bloggers, companies and ministries to reach an even wider demographic of young women. 

Several months ago, I was approached by a company that wanted to do a collaboration with Unfading Beauty Ministries-something that I’ve been dreaming about doing for a very long time. However, when I went onto the website to find out what their beliefs the company was founded upon, I was met with a long paragraph telling me a lot of stuff that goes directly against what I believe-and the beliefs this ministry was founded upon. 

Then, I found out that a Christian friend of mine was doing a collaboration with them. This caused a lot of wrestling within me as to whether I should or shouldn’t. I kept having thoughts like “If she’s okay with doing it, then it should be okay for me…but it just goes against what I believe to be right…”

After much prayer, I had to decline the offer, knowing that I couldn’t in good conscience support-and advertise my love for a company that goes completely against my fundamental beliefs. 

So, I started praying, Lord, if it’s your will for me to collaborate with other companies, lead me to ones that believe your truth…I surrender this dream to you.”

God has been so faithful in everything and I am far beyond excited to announce to you that I have partnered with several different companies and ministries to bring you a project about modesty!

a-new-light-on-modesty

Before you start thinking, “Modesty? Yeah, I’ve heard it a million times. Don’t dress like this, and do dress like that…” 

Well, let me tell you, this project, while it will talk about how we dress ourselves physically, I am also going to be talking about other kinds of modesty. I’ll just leave it at that and you’ll have to tune in to find out what other kinds of modesty there are! 

*Wink, Wink*

I want to say a special thank you to all the companies and Ministries that I am partnering with to bring this project to you!

  • Dainty Jewells Here’s a little bit about their company from their “About Us” Page:

“Dainty Jewell’s is about more than just selling beautiful clothing. We are on a mission to provide every woman and girl the opportunity to choose timeless fashions that stay true to her sense of modesty. We believe that having access to affordable, modest, and beautiful pieces allows all women’s true beauty to shine through.”

“NeeSee’s Dresses are vintage inspired, exclusive designs for women who love to wear beautiful clothes but who won’t sacrifice comfort or modesty. Each dress is feminine, flattering, and fashionable. When you wear one of our dresses, you feel confident because your best features are emphasized. Comfortable. Modest. Beautiful.”

Kosher Casual is a company that is in Israel and is dedicated to modest fashion. Their clothing is modest, beautiful and versatile! 

And Finally, I am getting to partner with Pure Freedom Ministries to do an absolutely fabulous End-Of-Series Giveaway!!

I want you to know that I truly, absolutely LOVE and support each and every one of these companies/ministries! 

I am so excited to see everything God is going to do through this awesome project! Within the next month or so I’ll be taking part in a photo shoot of some different outfits that have been graciously provided by the above companies as well as getting the rest of the exciting articles, print outs and other materials put together for all of you! As well as a vlog for each part of the series!

One last thing, I want to encourage all of you, if you have any questions or thoughts about modesty, please don’t be afraid to contact me! I am very excited to answer questions and interact with you!

Before you take off take a few moments to go check each one of them out! You won’t regret it!

Stay tuned for more details to come!

Until next time!
