Practical reasons for tithing

Practical reasons for tithing

Last year in this blog I discussed the theological aspects of tithing (read them here and here if you missed). As those discussions went viral a small number of visitors expressed their feedback in favor of the practice while others charged me with falsehood.  Nevertheless, the truth must be taught and defended at all costs.

Modeling modesty at the beach

Modeling modesty at the beach

I have a passion for promoting modesty—so much so that I wrote a book on the topic. That may not sound strange, except that my career choice seems like an oxymoron in light of my passion. I am an international professional model, and have been in the fashion industry for 20 years. I must admit, I am a proverbial clotheshorse, but I don’t let today’s styles dictate my convictions. 1 Timothy 2:9-10 states, “I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety (a regard for spiritual things) …appropriate for women who profess to worship God.”
