Episode 13: Modesty as an Act of Charity
We had such a beautiful conversation with blogger, Susan Husband. Raising seven boys can’t be an easy task, but forming boys to have dignity and respect for women in today’s hyper sexualized culture brings another set of opportunities. Let’s use the word opportunities instead of challenges cause we gotta start seeing the positive beauty of who we are again. Susan speaks to the beauty to which women are drawn to and their role to share that beauty to the world. Rightly ordered beauty and appreciation of beauty is a wonderful gift to be cherished. We’d love to hear how you have found ways to walk in modesty as a woman, to encourage your girls to be modest, and to teach your boys to uphold and fight for the dignity of women.

Saint Quote –
“When a man loves a woman, he has to become worthy of her. The higher her virtue, the more noble her character, the more devoted she is to truth, justice, goodness, the more a man has to aspire to be worthy of her. The history of civilization could actually be written in terms of the level of its women.” – Ven. Archbishop Fulton Sheen
