Covering Testimony: Syrina Fields

Name: Syrina Fields | Age: 29 | Location: Caputa, South Dakota | Date started covering: March, 2022


1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

My name is Syrina Fields. I am a follower of Christ, mom of two kids, wife, and farmer. I’m a lover of the outdoors, hunting, fishing, art, anything vintage, and a good ole cup of coffee.

I attend church at Harvest Time Freewill Baptist Church in Box Elder, SD. It’s similar to a Southern Baptist church. Freewill Baptist churches are very common where my husband grew up in the Ohio/Kentucky area. At first, I was the only one practicing head covering at church. However, the pastor’s fiancé and mother have both started covering, which has opened a lot of doors to conversations regarding head covering and the biblical meaning behind it.

2) What led you to start covering?

I originally thought that head covering was something specific to a different religion – not even part of Christianity – and mostly an issue of control.

In 2020 and 2021, I was feeling the need to start building a closer relationship with my Heavenly Father. I was questioning both my internal and external self. You could say I was feeling led as a wife, daughter, friend, and mother of a young lady to ensure I was showing my children what the true godly role was for a woman. At the same time, I was hearing a lot of political views about what a woman is, and my friends and family had their own opinions of the role of a woman in the household. Read more

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

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

Covering Testimony: Chachi Fabre

Name: Chachi Fabre | Age: Mid 50’s | Location: Tavares, Florida | Date started covering: 2012


1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

I grew up in South America and have known the Lord since I was a little girl, when I memorized Bible verses and loved to go to vacation Bible school. I have been happily married since 1992, and the Lord has provided for me the desires of my heart to have a beautiful, happy family with two children, now young adults. My husband and I are empty-nesters and we enjoy our time together like new honeymooners. I work as a Real Estate Professional and also enjoy my time at home.

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

Our home church is Grand Island Baptist Church. It’s only 12 minutes away by car from our home and is a great church that teaches straight from the Bible. It’s a Baptist church and I believe no one else uses a covering, other than me.

3) What led you to start covering?

For many years, I have been doing my reading and studying from the Bible and online Bible studies. One morning during my Bible study and prayer time, I had an enlightenment while reading 1st Corinthians 11. Something happened–it was like the eyes of my heart and my soul opened and it was more clear than clean water; I just had to obey and do it. There were NO questions; only understanding, only answers. Of course, I re-read it several times, and I cried and asked for forgiveness for my ignorance. I was excited and talked about it with everyone, my sister and my mother and of course I talked with my husband and asked him if it was fine with him about my decision of obedience to God. To my surprise, my husband was receptive to it and so were my children. As a side note, when this first happened, I had no head covering to wear, so I used to pray by myself covering my head with a pillow. I felt in concentration with God and isolated from all noises from around the house. Yeah! It may sound strange, but it really felt good and in harmony at my praying time. Read more
