The Modest Is Hottest Fashion Show

This is a big week. Friday night is the 2nd annual Modest is Hottest Fashion Show at Hickory Grove Baptist Christian School being held at Hickory Grove Baptist Church, Main Campus, in Charlotte, NC. I am telling you about this event because you won't be hearing from me after today until this event is over!

It was almost 2 years ago when I felt the leading of God telling me to do an event for girls and teens about Modesty. The first time I did it is a blur and I'm hoping it is for the church I did it at as well cause I'm sure it wasn't very good. But with each event, this thing has gotten bigger to where I now do about 15 to 20 of these per year. The reason the one this week is stressing me out is that I run the whole thing, even down to the logistics, publicity, you name it. I am soooooo not a logical person....I don't do numbers very well and I certainly don't put on huge events. Except that my son goes to this school and since there was no budget for it, I pretty much do it from start to finish. Cause I'm tryin' to get the girls that go to his school to dress modestly...nothing in it for me...noooooo! Except this event has gotten way bigger than I planned. But then, God is like that. As of today, we have sold over 500 tickets....yikes!!!!!!

Our local dept. store, Dillards is providing the clothes and have made arrangements for every early bird ticket holder to receive a FREE gift from Clinique! Today ends early bird, but I know more will show up at the door...they always do....cause God is like that. Our local radio station called me and asked to sponsor it....cause God is like that. Remember, I had no budget. All that said, I am excited, nervous, scared and know this is God's way of touching our youth and I get to be a small part of that....thru fashion, which is so cool, really. So I ask you, please pray that God speaks thru me, that girls and their moms hearts are touched, and that the models don't fall off the runway! And pray that I don't get all hung up on "me" and that God just does His thing....cause He is soooo like that! I am coveting your prayers this week. If you live anywhere near Charlotte, I'd love to see you there as I believe it will be a powerful event for our young girls. Beautiful Blessings today and this week......Shari

Oh Shari..
How exciting the way God works and has worked in this fashion show! I wish I could be there,I'd love to see it!
I will lift you up today and this week that everything goes smoothly..from the lights, to the models to the words coming out of your mouth. I pray that God reveals himself to lots of girls this weekend.

Hey girl. Let me know if you need a hand with anything! My baby girl isn't quite old enough so I won't be there as a "guest" but I'd LOVE to swing by and lend you a hand. Give me a shout! I've heard so many people talking about it and people who were at BOH telling others they just HAD to come because you are so great! I'm sooooo excited. I'll look forward to hearing from you!
