Recommended Links And Resources

What are my favorite links and resources I use for elegance? Here are some, just to name a few.

Daily Devotional

I find it helpful to read a short inspirational page to help me get through the day.

I subscribe to this devotional by my church and everyday, an encouraging devotional arrives at my inbox.

I enjoy reading it during my morning coffee. I hope you would too!

P.s. there are occasions where I use Scriptural references in my articles. Please note that I respect all faiths, and I'm only writing about my faith. Do read a reply I wrote some time back ...

When asked about why I refer to Jesus or God in my website, I replied...

I only write what I know

This is not a Christian website. However, my faith does influence my thoughts and I've added some bits in for greater clarity.

P.s. This is going to be a long post because I would love to explain myself. It helps me get this issue off my chest. It kind of is a secret, but out of respect that this is not a christian website and out in the public sphere, I've been writing with restraint. If you have no time to read it, the comment title says it all. Thanks! :) -----

Thank you Meg for your email. I try to be as sensitive as I can about the issue of faith.

This is not a christian website. I'm focusing on elegance and womanhood.

On the issue of catering to all faiths, I can only write what I know. I can't speak for everyone. I try to add 'your own spirituality' in some of the pages and you'll definitely see them.

For me, it is just easier and more natural to write 'God'. I suppose God has many names and trust that my readers will personalize all articles to themselves anyway.

Why do I include "God and Jesus" in little bits here and there? Actually I only include them in pages where I talk about having a good heart. That's because I believe a good heart is the greatest foundation of elegance. (Next would be education and thinking).

I've tried prevent myself infusing my faith into my articles but I've long realized - I cannot be honest that way. Personally, I just cannot seem to get better at elegance without having faith.

To be downright honest, I can't seem to be gracious, elegant, kind, compassionate without a mix of daily bible reading or devotional or a spiritual book, prayer, serving and attending church. To be even bolder to say so on a personal level, I feel that I cannot do ANYTHING (literally) without Jesus. But that's just me. I only know what works the best for me.

The minute I'm getting cranky, impatient or having moody thoughts (which will reflect a subtle frown on my face), I know I haven't been spending time reading or praying (casual talking to God), or attending church. The longer I stay away from church, serving others, the more inward, self-focused I get. I become self-conscious, negative, discouraged ... far from being elegant and gracious and hopeful!

If I don't spend time with Jesus...I've got nothing to give. I depend on divine inspiration for this website!

So there, my 'secret' is out.

I also understand there will always be a few naysayers and a couple of people who disagree with how I do things. The Christians would want to see more 'God' in it and the non-Christians would want me to stay on neutral ground. In essence, I can't please anyone and this is a private website anyway, I just wrote this because it is my great interest and passion. :)

Thank you for reading this and I most sincerely hope you will understand and respect our very minor differences.
