“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.” ~Anonymous~
I am a 23 year old young lady who is redeemed and saved from my sin only by the grace of God. A bibliophile at heart with a love of history who desires to see the Word of God practically applied to all aspects of our daily lives -- in our homes, in the grocery store, in the political realm. I strive to put my jumbled, chaotic thoughts down onto paper -- reducing them into black and white rows, letters, sentences. Into some semblance of sanity. And I share them here with all of you, where I can challenge you, make you think, and cause you to ask questions. I am the oldest of eleven children living the country life in the deep south.
