The topic of modesty usually seems to be a negative topic. With this video presentation, I had the goal of presenting it as something positive. I hope you feel that way when you see it!
As I prepared the video, I had a couple of things in mind that I was looking for (other than, of course, modest clothing). Because my group of listeners were teens, I was careful to only choose young models. I also wanted to include all types of dress (from casual to church, banquet to wedding) and many different styles and colors to appeal to a variety of tastes.
Of course, since we are missionaries in Ukraine, the presentation was prepared in Russian. The last song you will hear is only in Russian as far as I know, but the song is just beautiful and the message was right on target for what I was looking for... "How Great You Are." God is great and worthy of everything... including our decisions on how we dress!
And, here is a translation of the verses in the video:
