  • Why I Started Covering My Head (This Passionate Pursuit)
    “The interest I’ve had in head coverings over the course of my life sparked inside of me again. Though I had studied the subject for myself many times in the past, I began searching for more answers. Then one day, a few weeks ago, I came across a website called The Head Covering Movement.”
  • 1 Corinthians 11 – Headcovering (Dudley Gospel Hall)
    “I recently read an article on the subject of the Christian headcovering Paul talks about in his first letter to the Corinthians. The article in question was written by a fellow believer in the Lord Jesus Christ and it took me back a couple of years to when my wife was deciding whether it was right for her to have her head covered in church meetings.”
  • Homemade Headcoverings For 18-Inch Dolls (Frugal Abundance)

  • Black & White ~ Hard Question of Headcovering (A Blossoming Homestead)

  • A Modern Woman and the Headcovering (A Wordy Woman)
    “I heard preaching that warned of excluding pieces of the bible that seemed inconvenient to a certain agenda or doctrine. The claim was made, if you see anything that you don’t find in accordance to God’s word, you’d be our friend to show us. I soon learned that friendship extended to just about every bible passage except the first half of 1 Corinthians 11- the head covering.”
  • Grief over head coverings (Reformed Christian Theology)
    “Whenever the issue comes up, I feel that all it causes me is grief. The non-believer is not the one who takes issue, he finds Christianity strange to begin with. It is the believer who takes issue.”
  • Hats of the past (Northeast Arkansas Town Crier)
    “While we do not know the exact date of the first hat, it was most likely when man sought protection from the elements. We know that women began wearing hats during the Middle Ages when the Church decreed that their hair must be covered.”
  • Headcovering & Cringing (Frugal Abundance)
    “When I started wearing a headcovering, I did a lot of cringing. In public, I looked weird. I wasn’t exactly comfortable with wearing it yet….After 10 years, I don’t even give it a second thought. A headcovering is simply part of my way of life.”

  • Why I Cover (The Brown Bank)
    “I grew up Mennonite, but that is not why I cover my head.  In fact, I did not grow up wearing a head covering.  I was raised in the modern Mennonite church.  We had cars, video games, movies, fashionable clothes…all the “normal” aspects of modern life.”
  • This Man Loves His Wife (Always Learning)
    A man praising his wife publicly. One of the things he mentions is this: “My wife wears a dress and a head covering to church.  Maybe it is sinful pride, but I feel honored at church to have a wife that is one of the few wearing a dress and the only one wearing a head covering/scarf.”
  • Why I Wear a Head-Covering (Not My Own)
    “I am on the phone with a friend that went to a church where there was a woman teaching pastor. I asked her: “How can you choose to go to a church where a woman is teaching men when the bible clearly teaches that shouldn’t happen?” (1 tim. 2:12) Her response: ‘I’ll give you the same reason that you aren’t wearing a head covering, it’s cultural.’ Oops.”
  • 1 Corinthians 11: Principle versus Practice (Missional Leadership)
    “While I may not mandate that all womenfolk attending church services to have some kind of head-covering, nevertheless, I think it’s a good practice “for the sake of the angels” as I don’t see any other alternative expression of this symbol nowadays.”

  • Do Christian women cover their head? (Loving Head Covering)

  • Head Covering, Part 2: My fear of legalism cannot steal the joy of obedience (Separate & Together)
    “I know, I have felt, and I believe in the freedom and grace of the gospel of Christ, but how do I wrestle with a conviction that seems so…stringent…strict…restrictive… odd? Am I allowing my fear of legalism to steal the joy out of my obedience?”
  • Diversity in the church of Christ (YouTube)
    This guy is inspired when he sees a woman wearing a head covering. “Without constitutions and written creeds, the members of the church have the freedom to follow the scripture they read such as this young lady in front of me who worships with a head covering. Could this be her sincere effort to follow Paul’s instructions on head coverings in 1 Corinthians 11. I love the freedom to follow the Word!”
  • Head Covering – My Testimony (The Journey of a Lifetime)
    “I’ve had a few girls ask me where I stand on the issue of head covering, one of whom asked for me to share how I came to start wearing them, and my convictions on this issue.”

  • The Headcovering – It’s Not Just An Assembly Thing (Digital Sojourner)

  • On my Heart, About my Head. (Home with the Boys)
    “This posed a ridiculous dilemma for me. Church…I’m not really sure where the fear came from…I was concerned that I would be a bit of an oddity as the church wasn’t preaching this and I could only see one lady who I suspect covers (though in a fashionable manner). I’m happy to say that no one teased me or has made any comment since I’ve started attending service covered.”
