Embracing Modesty, No. 51

Embracing Modesty, No. 51

I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I started this series.  I intended to simply share what we wore each week, but it turned into so much more than that.  You all showed up and started leaving comments that blessed us and we got excited to share.  The girls would say, “Hey Mom, let’s be sure to take a picture of Grace today….she looks so cute!” or I would grab a shot of myself on my way out the door and think of sharing it with you each Friday.  Your daughters emailed me to say how much they look forward to seeing what we are wearing and then….unexpectedly, I started on an amazing weight loss journey.

I really never thought I would be able to lose the weight and I am still only about halfway to my goal.  But that naturally became part of this series as I started to look different and had to get new clothes.  Here’s a picture of me in the first post of 2013 next to the last one I shared….

Our summer swimsuit modesty edition was our most popular post in the series.

And when we shared what we wear for exercise

We have all of the posts from the whole series here in our gallery.

I will be starting a new series next year, but I will keep posting modesty pictures once or twice a month.  Y’all said you still want to see them, plus I will have all new clothes this year, so there will still be something new to show you occasionally.

Thanks so much for blessing us with your comments and encouragement this past year.  We have enjoyed spending this time with you.  See ya in 2014!



  1. I love it! What a wonderful way to end the year – so much thinner. I think you’ll need to dress up that trash can by your back door “Lisa” style for you pictures!

  2. I so loved this series – it was an inspiration and a blessing to my sweet girl and I! I’m glad you’re continuing! You look amazing!

  3. So awesome how you have showed real persistence in your weightloss journey! Congrats!
