    • Is Headcovering Divisive? (Truth at Home)
      “Headcovering, though it can be divisive, doesn’t have to be. Among mature Christians, it can be a wonderful, beautiful opportunity to encourage each other in our walk with God. Those who have already started to cover, or who have been covering now for awhile, can testify to the fact that headcovering has so many benefits in the Christian woman’s life! In that case, how can we not want to tell other ladies about it!”
    • The church in the funeral home – and veiled women (Kathryn Judson)
      “Following is an excerpt from Decidedly Not Official pulled out specifically for my friends in the head covering resurgence.

However, we have to remember who it is that we are serving.”
    • Why Do You Wear A Headcovering? (Radical Femininty)
      “For many years I wore the headcovering because my mother did, the ladies in our fellowship did, and the ladies in the community (ex-Amish/Mennonite) did. Positive peer pressure! But as I grew older, it was time to make a personal decision and answer the question for myself …”

    • Should women wear head coverings? (Dominic Bnonn)

    • Swing And A Miss (The Voice of One Crying Out In Suburbia)
