“Mystique means guarding what is sacred,
protecting the essence of who we are from the inside out –
our heart, emotions, intimate thoughts, and physical body.
A woman with mystique delicately preserves the treasure of who she is,
keeping herself carefully set apart for one who proves he is worthy of such a gift.”
~ Lesley Ludy – Authentic Beauty ~
“We are called to be women.
The fact that I am a woman does not make me a different kind of Christian,
but the fact that I am a Christian does make me a different kind of woman.
For I have accepted God’s idea for me,
and my whole life is an offering back to Him of all that I am
and all that He wants me to be.”
~ Elisabeth Elliot ~
“It seems to be the fashion nowadays for a girl to behave as much like a man as possible.
Well, I won’t!
I’ll make the best of being a girl and be as nice as a specimen as I can:
sweet and modest, a dear, dainty thing with clothes smelling all sweet and violety,
a soft voice, and pretty, womanly ways.
Since I’m a girl, I prefer to be a real one!”
~ Mrs. George de Horne Vaizey ~
“When a woman veils her body in modest clothing, she is not hiding herself from men. On the contrary, she is revealing her dignity to them.”
