"I am not a homemaker because I had too little ambition or education to make anything else of myself. No—I am a homemaker because God has given me the infinite honour of being a wife, and I delight in employing every ability that He has equipped me with in this glad career. I LOVE BEING HOME."

A lost Virtue

Modesty is know these days as the lost and forgotten virtue. It  is an issue that has been on my mind quite a bit lately and I have been studying scriptures and doing a ton of reading, about modesty and the present obvious lack of it in our western world.  

One of the books that I am currently reading is 

A return to modesty: discovering the lost virtue

 By Wendy Shalit 
It is extremely thought provoking and covers so many areas of life where modesty should com into play.
I am half way through it and  so far I like it despite the cover (that I have been hiding with a cotton book cover).
 I might post a full review when I am done. Also when I get a moment  am going to post my full reading list in the sidebar.
