This is a post I wrote for For Every Mom a great site especially for Christian moms! You may be wondering: Is that me in a bathing suit. Uh. Um. Yes. It is. Was this easy for me to do? Uh, no. It was not.
But, here’s why I did it.
Although I don’t advocate for women to put swimsuit pictures of themselves online…like ever…my editor at For Every Mom thought it would be a tangible way to prove the point of my post–that we need to get over the pressure to look like a swimsuit model and enjoy the summer anyway. Jesus’ love for us doesn’t changed based on our clothing size. And, that’s where we need to derive our value, not from how great we look in a tankini.
Should you wear a swimsuit this summer???
I hope you’ll read the post below.
Every year, I experience a rude disruption to my enjoyment of the pleasant spring weather. In April and early May I relish the time outdoors. I enjoy the warm sun, the blooming flowers, the singing birds. . .
Then, all of a sudden, serenity is disrupted. With an obnoxious: Buzz. Buzz. Buzz. Memorial Day arrives to make this announcement:
Buzz. Buzz. Buzz. This is the Emergency Broadcast System. We interrupt your delightful Spring to bring you this important announcement. Swimsuit season is coming in quickly from the South. Please prepare yourself appropriately or take immediate cover in an air- conditioned location. This is not a test. . .
