Covering Testimony: Deborah F.

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

Hello! My name is Deborah, I am a stay at home wife and home-schooling mother of three (ages 11, 9, and 5), who resides in central Virginia. When school is done for the day, I sporadically work from home on graphic design and websites as co-owner of silvermaplemedia.com. I also enjoy digitally designing religiously-themed word art in my spare time. When I am not on the computer, I fancy playing the piano, which is a fulfillment of a life long dream. (I began learning at the same time my oldest child started lessons 6 years ago.) I occasionally have opportunity to sculpt with fondant for special occasion cakes as well, which is loads of fun!

2) Where do you attend church? Tell us a little bit about it.

I attend a Reformed Baptist Church in Central VA, which adheres to the 1689 London Baptist Confession of faith. We are a small rural church of only 30 members. As such, we are like one big family. Only one other wife practices head covering in our church and her family just moved here in 2014. The Lord used her as the catalyst to my conviction. Read more

Covering The Web

Shining a spotlight on the head covering discussion happening worldwide.

    • Why I Don’t Wear a Headcovering (Yet) (Calico Sisters)
      Our take on this topic can be found here. There’s also a unexpected twist at the end: “In my mind I already had a conclusion for this post all set – I will start covering my head when I get married – simple and easy…”
    • The Practice of Head Coverings in the Church (Disciples Perspective)
      “Looking back from the middle of the first century up until the late 19th century, the practice of women wearing head coverings was in effect… in the blink of an eye, suddenly this practice became almost obsolete. What happened?”
    • Testimony of my spiritual transformation (Part 2) (Little maiden’s journey with Jesus)
      “Spiritual transformation is a gradual process which every believer has passed through in his/her faith journey. I must say, however, that nothing caused me to go this way so fast but the practice of headcovering. It is like an accelerating voltage!”
    • Accepting the Head Covering as a Creation Order Biblical Mandate (The Creation Order Mandate)
      A one-page defense of head covering: “Finding other blogs and websites published by women who cover has been absolutely essential to my journey! I hope this blog leaves you…with the same uplifted spirit!”
    • My Headcoverings (A Glimpse into my Heart) (Truth at Home)
      “The other day, we took a look at my closet. Today, I’d like to show you my headcoverings.”
