The Beginning of a New Chapter



On January 7th, 2012 at 11:00 am, Kit and I got married in the same church that my parents and grandparents were married in. :-) We have been married for almost 5 weeks now and it has already been a learning and growing experience. I hope to blog more about the different issues I face as a new wife soon, though I feel that I could use advice more than giving advice in this area... so if anyone has any ideas or tips for me... they would be greatly appreciated. :-)

Anyway, here are a few pictures from the best day of my life. :-)

Getting ready for the big moment :-)


Dad walked me down the isle, Pastor Walker did the sermon and Dad did the vows... then Pastor Walker pronounced us husband and wife and...

Congratulations!
I would be greatly interested and encouraged to read about your "courtship" and what you have learned that might help me and others in the journey to glorify GOD. Thank you for your other thought provoking posts!

Congratulations! I hope God will bless you throughout your marriage. I will be looking forward to your post about marriage.
That being said leads me to my question. What is modesty? On my blog I am planning to do a series of post once a week showing what I wore that week and giving ideas on how to dress modestly and still look good. As I started thinking about it, I started to think about modesty; and the sad fact of it is. I don't really know what modesty is. I have asked my dad and mom and I plan to do major searching in the Bible.
I was wondering what you thought modesty was?
Since I didn't know I thought I would do an essay on modesty and post it that first week, so if you can find the time to answer this, would you mind if I posted your thought and linked you to the to the post?
Thank!
Rebekah
