Your Name Is Worth More Than You Think

One reason St. John Paul II was greatly loved is because he made the extra effort to remember the name of each person he met and little things about them.  He remembered the names of Swiss guards, seminarians, and other people he randomly met throughout his life, even years later.  He could even remember all the 2000+ bishops individually by name!  WOW!

He had the power to help others feel loved just by remembering and using their name.  How?  What is so special about remembering someone’s name? Continue reading “Your Name Is Worth More Than You Think”

Why is Modesty Important?

Modesty is hard.  I admit it, staying modestly dressed takes commitment and struggle in this day and age.  I love fashion and really enjoy shopping, but when I put that and modesty together in this culture I’m faced with a challenge.  If it’s high in the front it’s low in the back.  If it’s modest on top it’s short on the bottom.  But I have always been taught to be modest by my parents, at retreats, and by the church.  Whatever I wear gets the “yes” or “no” of my parents and I just go with that.  I have always been told what to do…but why?  Why do I have to spend an extra few hours shopping to get that shirt with a neckline 3in higher or that bathing suit that gives more coverage?  What is the point?

I would like to share with you 5 reasons why being modest is so important.  Hopefully you can take these reasons to heart and strive to be more modest because of them. Continue reading “Why is Modesty Important?”
