Straightforward English Helps us Understand Headcovering (Truth at Home) “Last night, I watched Steven Anderson’s sermon “Head Coverings in Light of the Bible” for the first time. For several months I had been planning to view it, but hadn’t felt quite up to the agitation I suspected would result.”
Headcovering and Happiness (The Happy Housewife) “My veils make me so happy.
