on the dress code debate

 Modesty, modesty. Can topics get much more controversial than this? 😹😬So of course I’m jumping in the debate... to help y’all as you lead youth... with a pretty Printable! 👩🏻‍🎨 

Whenever there is a church event like a dance, youth conference, or girls camp, there’s always the big Modesty Question. Will we have a dress code, 🤔 and what will it look like? 


I’m not going to lie & say I’ve never struggled with the narratives and ideas about modesty. 💁🏻‍♀️ I’m a YW, this is how I feel and how my peers— in this time of our lives in high school just trying to fit in— can feel too. The culture we live in is hostile to objective truth and religion— chastity and modesty wayyy even more so! 🤦🏻‍♀️ 


But when we get down to it, the commandments of God are always liberating. 🙏 His ways are higher than ours. That’s why I want to support my leaders as they do their best to apply them in their policies... with designs, where I come in!!!👩🏻‍💻 


As I was creating it, I felt prompted to create a resource from a YW who gets it to help others struggling with understanding modesty or those trying to help them. It takes all the worldly myths on modesty and shatters them from a gospel and friendly perspective. 😇



Because of the nature of the controversy of the subject, I only want people who want to read it to do so. 👌 Here’s the link, click on the “request access” button if you’re interested, and I hope it helps. 


The resource also gives insights into why I chose to make the printable the way I did— nothing crazy. Just a scripture & excerpts from FSY! 📚 Depending on your views, a dress code like this or a dress code at all may seem not ok to you! 🙊



That’s where the editability comes in! ✍️Make a copy and you can add your ward info— and, yes, alter the intensity of the dress code as desired! 😂


🤷🏻‍♀️ I’m a centrist in general and I think that describes this dress code. 🤓But where I do go all out is in design! This supercute dress code printable is totally gorgeous, totally free & totally yours!! 


Ready for the link? Before I sign off, I just want to make sure you know this is NOT the only resource I have to make your life easier as a Latter-Day Saint. 💛 Follow me on Pinterest 📌 + check out tons of printable goodies! Now for the promised Google doc. I hope it helps you! THANK YOU for all you do to lead the youth!!
