Remembering Modesty

I will dress modestly to show respect for Heavenly Father and myself (My Gospel Standards).

When you dress modestly you are showing Heavenly Father that you respect and care for the body He has given you. Whether you are a boy or a girl, take a minute to look in the mirror when you get dressed every day. Ask yourself, “If I were with Jesus Christ, would I feel comfortable with how I look?” Here are some modesty reminders. You can find these standards and more in the For the Strength of Youth booklet.

Clean, neat hair

No earrings for boys

Covered stomach

Shorts a modest length

No sloppy or torn clothes to fit in with a style

Covered shoulders

No rude or offensive sayings

Dresses or skirts a modest length
