“Modesty Week” on Covenant Eyes Radio – Episode 119


How can fathers in the church encourage modesty in their daughters? How can men in the church play a dynamic role in shaping the hearts of young women to desire modesty?

In our roundtable discussion we have four special guests to help us unpack this topic:

  • Rachel Lee Carter and her husband Daryl – Rachel has been a professional model for more than 20 years, represented by top-tier modeling agencies worldwide. She is also the president of Modeling Christ, a ministry addressing the issues of modesty and purity in a culture influenced by the fashion industry.
  • Alyssa Shull and her husband Matt – Alyssa is the founder of The Pink Lid, a weekend program specifically for teenage girls that addresses the subject of beauty, fashion, purity, and modesty.

Listen to the other episodes: Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3

Music for today’s podcast is “Teach Me Your Ways” by Ish.

      Hi Luke,

      I believe it’s always the men who should regulate on what their girls wear, in love of course. Women could ‘try’ to do it, but it isn’t her place. When i was a teen in the mid 70s, this was the time when everyone was going around BRALESS–my dad wouldn’t LET me go around like that, and he wasn’t a Christian at the time. to this day, i would not go around like that. MEN, YOU HAVE TO STEP UP ON THIS —as i’m speaking out today, 53% of ALL AMERICAN WOMEN are having children OUT OF WEDLOCK!! think about this: those children will be having babies young and destroying out ECONOMY even faster I was talking to a middle-class lady, she took her 13 yo niece to school and saw that 3 children in her nieces 13 yo class ARE PREGNANT!. No one, no matter how educated will ever find decent work UNTIL this problem is controlled.

      What i mean by controlled: keep families together and strengthen relationships, know where your kids are and who they’re with, etc….you know….DONT BE A BOOR
