Mary Mohler Speaks on Modesty and Marriage at Answers for Women 2013

We are so pleased to have Mary Mohler returning this year to present at the “Answers for Women” conference. Mary is the wife of Dr. Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. She is the founder and director of Seminary Wives Institute, an academic program for student wives at Southern Seminary and Boyce College. However, her favorite roles are those of wife and mother. I asked Mary to give us some insight into her presentations for this year’s conference.

Modeling Modesty

Do you think of the virtue of modesty as an outdated, Victorian notion? Apparently, many women do. Modesty in dress for us as Christian women is an indication of our seriousness in showing the world and our fellow believers that we seek to be holy in all that we do. Join us for this seminar as we explore what the uphill battle to model modesty looks like in 2013 in light of steadfast Biblical mandates. We will seek to discover what the motivation is behind the abandonment of modesty that seems to be so prevalent even among believers and how to teach our daughters to go against the tide and embrace modesty for all the right reasons.

Embracing God’s Plan for Marriage in a World That Makes Up Its Own Rules

“Submission, are you serious? Don’t you know that you don’t have to be a doormat anymore?” Questions like these are too often the norm as an outraged society questions how women can voluntarily sign on for a marriage based on complementarianism, including male headship. However, these same people do not seem to be outraged at Scripture’s lofty command to husbands to love their wives as Christ loves the church and gave His life for them. God’s plan is best now just as it was when the Holy Spirit inspired the authors to pen the words of Scripture over 2,000 years ago. Let’s have an honest discussion about God’s blueprint for marriage and be reminded that we simply cannot improve upon His perfect plan.

Mary’s presentations were well-liked at last year’s women’s conference and are always biblically sound and practical. Whether we are young or old, single or married, a parent or not, the issues presented at Answers for Women are relevant for our lives as we seek to be godly women in an ungodly society.

Here are just a few comments we received about last year’s conference:

Mary Mohler—very energetic, would like to hear more from her.

Can’t wait for the next one.

I can’t thank you enough for a wonderful time of encouragement and equipping me.  This conference was great! I laughed, cried, and grew in faith and love of the Lord!

Next week I’ll share more information about a new speaker to the conference, Dr. Joy Fagan.
