I got this amazing movie right before Christmas. It is now one of my new favorite movies. My boyfriend and I watched it "together" (long-distance, y'know) and he loved it despite the fact he thought it would be a "typical chick flick", but it was far from it! I loaned it to my youth group teacher and she loved it too. :)
Old-Fashioned is a must see for couples, individuals who are just dating or people about to dating! In today's hook-up society, it's really a breath of fresh air to find a movie like this. Old-fashioned courtship in contemporary America, is that possible? Watch this movie if you want to see a refreshing love story without all the "friends with benefits" stuff. This is a true love story.

I met Chelsea Musick when she came around Christmas time to perform at my local Catholic youth group, where I volunteer. She's an AMAZING person and a great singer! Enjoy this awesome song, "Keep Your Pants On".
My youth group and RCIA teacher gave me this AMAZING book for Christmas How to Find Your Soulmate (without Losing Your Soul) by Jason and Crystalina Evert, authors of Pure Manhood and Pure Womanhood. I'm currently on page 133, it's a great book and can almost not put it down, but I wanted to make a post before I forgot completely!. Modesty plays such an important part, because I want a man to cherish me for my heart and mind, not my body. I want him to lead me closer to God, not just respect my faith but, come with me as I grow closer to God and Mother Mary. I am so happy to say my current and first ever boyfriend, matches all the good things in this book. :) And I am so glad I haven't gotten together with any of those other guys after reading this. Girls, get this book before you enter a relationship or if you're already in one. There are so many good tips for analyzing your relationship and to find out if it is worth keeping or not.

If you've ever tried to talk to a young girl about purity and chastity, especially one who's just entering high school, you know how difficult it can be.

What if you could give her something to read that she'd enjoy — and believe? Now you can. "Pure Womanhood" focuses on the concerns and difficulties faced specifically by girls.

For a lot of people the word ‘modesty’ is automatically associated with clothing and appearance. Most girls think of being told not to wear short skirts or low-cut tops… and our thoughts generally go no further. In stopping on the outside of our bodies, we stop on the outside of the concept. By neglecting the heart, we don’t pierce the reality of what it is to be truly modest. In fact, that’s the essence of the way in which we’ve become too caught up in the physical implications and drifted away from the true meaning of modesty.
Modesty is not synonymous with oppression.
It’s not a concept intended to hold women or hide women away under folds of fabric so they can’t be seen or heard. In fact, it’s entirely the opposite. Modesty is NOT just a matter of the hemline, but a matter of the heart. It’s not restricting, but freeing.
The word itself is defined as ‘the quality or state of being unassuming in one’s own abilities.’Where does that definition mention the body? The point is that the applicability to the body is merely a consequence of the applicability to the heart. Instead of using our femininity to achieve, we should acknowledge the reality that it is not by our own strength, but by God’s, that all things come about – ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’(Philippians 4:13). THAT is true modesty.
