Would I Wear this to Seminary?

Amanda R., Maryland, USA

We face a lot of things in the world that could keep us from living gospel standards. But certain things can help. For example, when I think about what to wear each day, I ask myself if I would wear the outfit to seminary. It may seem like a silly question, but it makes sense. If I don’t think it would be appropriate to wear to seminary, why would I wear it anywhere? If I realize I shouldn’t wear it, why keep it? If I don’t have it in my closet, I can’t be tempted to wear it.

Those questions have helped me stay modest and will help me in the future. Plus, dressing modestly today means I won’t have to change my wardrobe when I enter the temple.
