How To Find Your Personal Style Without Compromising Modesty

Have you ever felt torn between the desire to look beautiful and dress modestly? Maybe you've even been tempted to reject the concept of modesty all together because we shouldn't have to dress for men. It's okay, we've been there too. Join Lizzy Rich and I as we talk about the importance of modesty and discuss the difficult topics: leggings, swimsuits and more. Find more of Lizzy on social @justahandmaiden or online at https://justahandmaiden.com/. As always, you can find me @carolineroseowens.

4 Ways To Turn Your Dreams Into Reality

When we make plans and they don't work out, it's tough to trust that God has something better. However, He has given us crazy wild dreams and wants to see us pursue them while trusting He will provide in abundance. Throughout college I dreaded the question "What do you want to do with your life?" because it wasn't easy for me to package my dreams and passions into a single job. When I was tempted to believe my only option was to settle, Jesus would remind me that He had something better. My patience paid off and with the help of St. Jospeh I was able to land my dream job! Today I'm letting you in on this exciting new adventure and sharing how you too can land your dream job or internship. For additional details about where I'll be working and what I'll be doing, check out my instagram page @carolineroseowens!
