Dignified by Grace

Hi! My name is Lizzy and I am a freshman at the Catholic University of America. I’m starting My Yes for a couple reasons. Firstly, because when I was in high school women’s talks infuriated me. I was told to dress modestly for men, to protect their honor, and not for myself. I hated the word modesty, and its current definition. But then I was taught something that changed my life. I’m not dressing for men; I’m dressing as a daughter of the King of the Universe and with that comes a worth of unimaginable beauty. I’m not dressing modestly, but I am dressing with beauty and dignity. I’m dressing as a temple of God and disrespecting myself meant disrespecting Him. Secondly, when I was told to dress and live modestly I was never actually shown how. I saw all of these beautiful women, and I had these amazing examples of how to live modestly, but they felt untouchable, perfect. I couldn’t figure out how to even get close to what they were doing. I want this blog to be a place where you can see women living out their faith in a real and authentic way. A place where you can see how women practically live out their dignity as women and daughters of Christ. I’m not here to preach or tell you how to live your life. I just want to show you what I, and a bunch of other women, are doing in our lives and hope that you can take something good from it.

This blog reflects my daily yes to God working in my life. Every Monday there will be a post with a piece of my story, a favorite outfit of the week, and my 3 favorite songs of that week. Then, on Fridays I will feature different Godly women who have inspired me in my faith and I hope will inspire you too. If my fashion sense doesn’t fit yours then I hope one of the women I feature will and if it does I hope you stay around to see what this blog has to offer. If you have any questions feel free to contact me and please, please leave any prayer requests in the contact section. More important than any fashion advice I could give is the community of prayer that I want to surround this blog. I have no idea how this blog is going to work out, but I know that God is going to do something beautiful with it. So here is… My Yes.

Songs of the Week:
Maybe IDK – Jon Bellion
