We’ve heard it said that those who hold to head covering are “simple” and unskilled in Biblical exposition. The fact is, many of the brightest biblical scholars with prestigious degrees believe in this doctrine too.
Shining a spotlight on the head covering discussion happening worldwide.
Why the “Small” Matter of Headcovering is NOT a Small Matter (Truth at Home) “…headcovering isn’t just about a piece of cloth. It isn’t just about appearances. What it’s really about is how we interpret the word of God: Do we interpret the Bible at face value, or do we interpret it based on assumptions?”
31 How To Make Your Hair Grow Faster Tips (OLWomen) “Long, healthy and gorgeous looking locks are the most desirable…[the following] are some of the easiest techniques to make your hair grow faster and long utterly beautiful.” Submitted to us by Velma Gray. No idea if any of these work but thought it would be of interest to our readers because of 1 Cor 11:15
Christian Woman Wearing a Hijab- What Was It Like? (Healthy Life = Happy Wife) “I experimented with this topic and I decided to wear a Hijab everyday for two weeks. My results were very unexpected…On a spiritual level, I felt so close to God….It made me not want to take it off.”
Our Head Covering Applications (Another Radical Reformation) “The head covering is a good example of a Biblical command that Anabaptists have added applications to. I have my own preferences for my wife and daughters in regards to our application of this command…And if I insist that everyone must do exactly as I do or I can not consider them to be a true brother/sister in Christ, something is wrong.”
When Going Out Without a Hat Was Grounds for Scandal (Atlas Obscura) “I think part of it had to do with women not wanting to be told what to do, darnit—not being told whether you have to be respectable, have to do this, do that,” says Conti. “It’s like the statement with burning bras: get rid of a hat, you’re free! Like being on the front bow of the Titanic and the wind blowing in your hair—it was a freedom.”

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.
Hello everyone. My name is Marie. After meeting and marrying the love of my life at our Assembly of God undergraduate college, I followed my husband on his journey to reformed Christianity during his years in seminary. A few months after he graduated, with a newborn in tow, we moved hundreds of miles from family and friends to a church that called Angelo to be their pastor in Alexandria, Pennsylvania. We’ve been in Alexandria for almost three years now and have since added another baby to the mix. I’m a stay-at-home mom to Jonathan (3) and Eliana (almost 1), along with all the responsibilities that come with being the pastor’s wife in a small county church. I love to cook & bake, especially with my son, tickle my daughter and watch lame superhero shows with my husband. Read more
Our sister Angela Dekker did a good job representing evangelical Christianity in the documentary “I’m a Non-Muslim and I Wear a Hijab” which was made by Ahlulbayt TV. It highlights non-Muslim women who also cover their heads and their rationale for it. We posted the trailer last week but today we have the full documentary for you to watch. We watched it and enjoyed it. It was really well done. We hope you’ll check out the whole thing but if you were just wanting to hear Angela watch the first 13 minutes and then check these timestamps: 18:57, 20:57, 22:46, 24:16, 26:09, 29:08, 31:34.
In case you missed it, you can read Angela’s headcovering testimony which we conducted with her here.
