The wearing of fabric head coverings in worship was universally the practice of Christian women until the twentieth century. What happened? Did we suddenly find some biblical truth to which the saints for thousands of years were blind? Or were our biblical views of women gradually eroded by the modern feminist movement that has infiltrated the Church...? - R.C. Sproul

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

Throughout my teenage years, I was a bit of a prodigal daughter. I lived for the world and looked for the world to make me happy. By God’s grace, I came back to Jesus when I was 19 years old and dedicated my life to Him when I was 20. I’m now a little more than one year into marriage and love the work God is doing in my life!

2) Where do you attend church? Tell us a little bit about it. Do others practice head covering there?

I attend a non-denominational church. To my knowledge, I am the only one who practices head covering there.

3) What led you to start covering?

I first heard about head covering through an Allen Parr YouTube video titled, “Do Christian Women Have to Wear Head Coverings Today?” I had never heard of Christian head covering before. Immediately after watching the video, I wanted to do a deeper dive into this topic. Within that day, I knew I felt called to it. I was amazed by the idea of a Christian wearing a head covering, and I was surprised that I had never heard 1 Corinthians 11 before. I Googled the subject, read many articles and blog posts, and watched multiple YouTube sermons.

I had a feeling from the Holy Spirit that this was something I wanted to look into for myself, rather than forming my opinion based on this one video. For me, the video was kind of just an introduction. Read more

Derek Prince on Head Covering (1 Corinthians 11:2-16)

In this video, world renown bible teacher Derek Prince (1915-2003) explains his beliefs about head covering with his wife Ruth Prince by his side.

How Head Covering Changed Me

I began covering in the Fall of 2012, and the journey has been amazing. Where I’m standing now isn’t the same place I started, as I can see when looking back on the past nine years. Head covering has taught me some important life lessons.

And right now, I bet I already know what you’re thinking: I’m about to say that head covering helped me learn to be a more submissive wife. Though that is certainly true (and I will be coming back to that in a moment), there are actually some other ways head covering changed me that aren’t as obvious.

The Less Obvious

To start with, I used to be a little afraid to be different. I didn’t want people to think ill of me. On the contrary, I wanted to impress them with how smart and how pretty I thought I was! I can see now that I was insecure and guided by vanity. Head covering changed all that.

As a result of head covering, I’ve given up on those things. I haven’t given up on trying to look pretty or be smart, but I’ve given up on caring about people thinking that I look pretty or that I’m smart.

I suspect they think I’m a little different, maybe even ignorant and unbalanced, and I’ve arrived at the point where I’m okay with that. I don’t need their approval and I don’t care what they think of me (okay, I actually do still care — just not as much as before). What freedom to let go of the need to live up to other people’s expectations, and to not worry about their opinion of me! Read more
