    This is really great – Steve let me reblog his post about parents of young children on my site and i linked it with this immensely popular one from my friend Candi [who also went through postnatal depression] and they both encouraged and challenged a lot of people:

    Thanks again
    love brett fish

  2. Really interesting post on the swimwear video. I’m for some reason fascinated with the subject of modesty and religion — not because I believe in it for myself (though I dress modestly regardless, just what I’m comfortable with for myself), but just because the whole subject is so interesting and so bound up in women’s roles and feminism. I really liked that author’s response. I was thinking the same thing when I saw the video: Plenty of people who believe in modesty would have been offended by the speaker’s bare shoulders, ha.

    I’m wondering if I can get over the messy house & enjoy having people over this summer. It’s been awhile since we’ve entertained since it’s been a wreck for so long!

      Thanks for your input, Lauren! I have the same thoughts as you do with modesty, religion and female roles. I had a couple of Mormon Facebook friends say that they also didn’t like the over all message of the video, and feel that the Church puts dressing modestly on the girls’ shoulders, telling them “Who knows what the boys are thinking when you’re scantly clothed?!” I like the idea of dressing for confidence and teaching young women that they aren’t responsible for young men’s thoughts. (What the young men should be hearing in another discussion.)
      I, too, like the idea of hosting parties and being the popular house on the block, but as of now, I’m either too self conscious about how messy my house looks, or once it is clean, I don’t want my house to be constantly dirty from my guests. Those two things really stop me from being the hostess with the mostess. Maybe one day I’ll loosen up. :)
