This course is designed for our creative children who have a Flair for Fashion. We will define what Fashion means as a Christian and below is an example of what our first class will touch on. The goal is to develop self confidence, implement effective leadership skills, identify your passion & build a creative portfolio that will be effective for whatever your personal goals are for yourself. Class #1 What is fashion and what is our role as Christians in this industry? Psalm 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. What it means: You are created in the image of God, and God doesn’t make junk! Like a snowflake, every person is unique. No two are the same. God sees you as a masterpiece; and when you look in the mirror, He wants you to “know that full well.” Try this beauty tip: Every morning when you look in the mirror, say Psalm 139:14 and smile. You might even tape the verse on your mirror as a reminder! 1 Peter 3:3-4 Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

What it means: This does not mean it’s wrong to braid your hair or wear nice clothes and jewelry. The verse was written to warn women not to follow the customs of some of the Egyptian women who, during that time period, spent hours and hours working on their hair, makeup, and finding the perfect outfit. God would rather see women work on becoming beautiful on the inside — the kind of beauty that lasts forever. 1 Timothy 4:8 Physical exercise has some value, but spiritual exercise is much more important, for it promises a reward in both this life and the next. What it means: Exercising and staying in shape is a good thing, but God expects us to stay in shape spiritually by reading our Bibles, praying, and going to church on a regular basis. In other words, there will be plenty of people who put their time and effort into staying in shape but who are out of shape spiritually. If they don’t know Jesus Christ, their perfect bodies won’t get them through the gates of heaven. God made beauty, but with beauty come responsibility. The fashion industry needs Christians to influence what the world says is beautiful. We want to teach teens how to be fashionable and glorify God at the same time.
