Covering Testimony: Aliya Mathiesen

Name: Aliya Mathiesen | Age: 25 | Location: California | Date started covering: July 31, 2022


1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

I’m a young wife and mom who is passionate about reformed theology, conservative politics, and holistic living. In my free time, you can find me spending time with family, looking for a good restaurant to eat at, or listening to audiobooks.

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

I recently moved, but plan to attend a reformed church called Fountain Of Life Fellowship in Fountain Valley. When we visited, I noticed that I’m the only person who covers her head there, but I honestly don’t expect to see people doing it anyway.

3) What led you to start covering?

First, I should state that I grew up in a church that didn’t teach head covering, so my stance over the years had been that it was a cultural command to the Corinthians. I never thought twice about my stance since every pastor I respected (and every church I had been a part of) believed the same.

Then I was exposed to Christians who covered, both through the Head Covering Movement and in real life. I was still on the fence about their arguments, but they made some interesting points. Read more

Should I ALWAYS Obey My Husband?

Since biblical womanhood involves submission to my husband, it makes sense that as part of that, I will obey him. Throughout all the years we have been married, my husband has never asked me to do anything wrong, which has made it very doable for me to submit to him – but I know this is not the case for all marriages.

What if your husband asked you to do something wrong? Or what if you had a serious disagreement with him over something very important to you? Should you obey him?

In this one article, it would be impossible to cover the whole range of different scenarios that might occur! However, I believe we can uncover some general guidelines that could apply to almost any situation.  Read more

The Unexpected Blessings of Head Covering

When I first began to feel convicted to cover my head, I was a little confused. I had never known anyone who practiced this, and I wasn’t sure if I was understanding correctly. It was at a time in my life when I had been praying for change: for my home to be filled with more joy and peace, for direction, and for my husband to step more into his role as the spiritual leader of our home. I didn’t understand where head covering would fit in with this, but I began researching and trying to understand.

I read 1 Corinthians 11 and it became clear to me.

In fact, I have seen many unexpected blessings in my life since beginning to cover! Read more

Covering Testimony: Amy Ericson

Name: Amy Ericson | Age: 41 | Location: Phoenix, Arizona | Date started covering: 2018


1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

My husband and I, both followers of Jesus Christ, were married in 2003 at the age of 23. We lived in Indianapolis until God invited us to live in Abu Dhabi, UAE (United Arab Emirates) in 2008. Our time there ended in 2019 when we then moved to our current city of Phoenix, Arizona. We have three kids – ages 11, 9, and 6 – all of whom we homeschool.

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

We currently attend Grace Church of Peoria, in a suburb of Phoenix. It is four miles from my home and filled with awesome, faithful followers – many of whom are similar to us in how they live and run their homes. I am currently the only woman who wears a head covering at my church. I’ve had one young, single gal ask me about my head covering. I believe, with a little bit of encouragement, she will want to start wearing one as well.

Remarkably, I just found out last Sunday that a new friend at church is considering donning a head covering! She’s been convicted about it and now she’s just getting comfortable with the idea. She was inspired to see me wearing one when they first started attending our church a few months ago.

3) What led you to start covering?

I had not heard a good sermon on 1 Corinthians 11:2-16 before and thought that head covering was just something a certain, super-conservative denomination practiced. At first, I did not associate it with the authority structure that God has laid out in the Bible. Read more

Covering Testimony: Nevadah Martin

Name: Nevadah Martin | Age: 22 | Location: USA | Date started covering: 03/2021


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
