As with anything new, my experience with headcovering has been exciting, encouraging, very set-apart (if you know what I mean), a little challenging, but altogether strengthening to my faith and growth in Christ. I'll be honest, I've been very blessed by many people (both men and women) coming up to tell me how happy they are to see me covering and that they fully support it, but I've also received lots of "oh-she's-one-of-those" looks and even funny remarks that just go to show how little people really understand about it.
Something else I want to mention is, since this is usually such a different step for women who start covering, it's totally normal to kind of be unprepared at first. Hey, I'm still adjusting to it, but if there's one thing I can recommend to anyone trying to start covering, it's this: you need more than one, in fact, you need several. Several in earth tones and hues that complement your complexion and reflect your personality. You need to be able to have more than one for different outfits and what not, because you want to proclaim this in a beautiful and attractive way. I'm not saying go all out, you still need to keep it simple and it shouldn't be the whole focus, but there is a tasteful way to do it. I only had two to start off with, which made it a bit tricky; but in time I bought or made more (there SUPER simple...do I hear future tutorial??).
So, what have you been thinking about head coverings lately? I'd love to know your thoughts! Comment down below.
