Dress and Appearance
It was Braxton's turn to do Family Home Evening on Monday night. He wasn't too thrilled about it, but he gave a fabulous lesson. He chose to speak on dress and appearance from the Strength for Youth packet. I always thought of dress and appearance being more of a topic for girls. When I hear the word "modest" I think of girls and short shorts and short skirts and tight everything and see-through everything and low-cut fronts and backs of everything, etc. I work on a college campus, after all. We see it ALL! But, Braxton really made it meaningful for the boys. He talked about the importance of cleanliness, appropriate church dress, especially when they are passing/blessing the Sacrament. He talked about low-hanging pants and inappropriate shirts. Then, we talked about the importance of supporting girls their age who are modest, who choose to dress with dignity. I was so proud of this boy!
