I'm so happy for the sisters. Missionary clothing shopping is going to be so much easier for them than it was for me!
In regards to the changes in dress for the sisters, President Thomas S. Monson said, "You can dress attractively without being immodest. Within the Lord’s guidelines, there is room for you to be lively, vibrant, and beautiful both in your dress and in your actions."
I love this statement, and I think it is wise counsel for all women, LDS or not. God wants us to show our beauty, but he wants us to show respect to our bodies. We do not dress modestly because our bodies are bad, but we dress modestly because our bodies are gorgeous and wonderful. I also love that he implies that we can be modest in our actions. We do not need to seek attention or the world's approval, whether it be in person or on social media.
I have been a happier, more confident person since I committed as a young woman to dress modestly, and I have been able to feel the Spirit more abundantly. I am grateful for a living prophet who helps us to understand how God wants us to live in these troubled times and how to avoid the temptations of the world.
How has dressing modestly blessed your life?
