“Immodest clothing is any clothing that is tight, sheer, or revealing in any other manner.” – For the Strength of Youth

Today and for the next half a week, I, ____________________, will avoid clothing that allows more of my body to be seen than should be.

Who Did I Want to Be?
“An event some years ago changed my attitude toward modesty. As I got ready to go to a Mutual activity, I put on some short shorts; it never occurred to me that they were inappropriate. The activities planned for that Tuesday included having the missionaries give us some practical advice about missionary work. One of the last empty seats was next to me. For a brief moment the elders began to argue, as discreetly as they could, over who had to sit next to me. Though they never said so specifically, I understood they were uneasy because of the way I was dressed.

“At that moment, notwithstanding my embarrassment, I began to understand what it meant to be modest. I realized that I was making virtuous young men feel uncomfortable—and that I could also be making unvirtuous men feel too comfortable. I began to better understand what type of person I wanted to be with and, more important, what type of person I wanted to be. From that moment on, I was not only prepared for the changes I was about to make, but I looked forward to making them.” – Chelsea Anderson in Modesty Matters

Would I feel comfortable with my appearance if I were in the Lord’s presence?
