Hope: the Most Beautiful Thing to Wear this Easter & Beyond

April 2, 2021

Hello and welcome to Dressed for My Day. I’m well overdue for posting an inner beauty post, so I thought Good Friday would be a good day to do that. I’ve prepared a 10-minute video for you today that shares how we can be women of hope. I think our world craves hope like few other things. And we can be women who share that hope with a hurting and anxious world. That’s why I think hope is the most beautiful thing we can wear this Easter…and beyond.

I hope you enjoyed today’s video. If you did, I would love for you to share it with some friends or family members. You can share it from YouTube or from this blog post. You could share it on Facebook or you could send them the link in an email or text. Here’s the link to the video: . Just copy and paste it into your email, text or Facebook post.

Need to Know the Source of Hope?

If you or someone you know would like to know more about how to find hope, click through this link ( to a special page I’ve prepared where I’m sharing that message. I actually had my husband James write the text on that page because he does it so much better than I do.

Thank you for stopping in today. I wish you a meaningful and thoughtful Good Friday. I’ll be back Saturday with my How I Really Dressed for My Day post.


Spread the love
xoxo, Kay

  1. Thank you thank you thank you. This message was so on target for me and I know for others as well. I am inspired by you daily and love that you wear your faith as beautifully as the gorgeous fashions you share.

  2. Thank you Kay, this was an excellent message for our world today. Our hope is in Jesus Christ, hallelujah!

  3. Thank you for your message today. It blessed me more than you know. I love all your content and messages.


  4. This brought tears to my eyes, and filled me with renewed hope, thank you Kay. I’m glad you didn’t apologize for your message about Jesus Christ. Regardless of how we view Him, the message of hope that He brings is so very much needed. Blessings to you and this group on this special holiday.

  5. Your post was truly an inspiration, Kay. God has certainly blessed you with a wonderful way to reach others through your posts. Easter blessings to you and your family.

  6. Beautiful video today, Kay. Our world is indeed in desperate need of hope only found in a relationship with Jesus Christ. Thank you for stepping out in faith and using your blog this way. Happy Easter!!!

  7. Thank you for your courage to speak Truth .. our only HOPE is JESUS! Happy Easter…He is risen!!!!!

  8. Dear Sweet Kay, I just listened to your podcast about being a pastor’s wife. Although my husband is not a pastor, he is an elder in a large church and I was able to relate to much of what you said. Thank you for being such a “sweet aroma” for Christ! Your godly wisdom and kind and gracious speech no doubt will draw women to Christ! I just love your blog and videos. They are helpful in trying to stay current and classy with fashion and your devotionals at the end are always an encouragement to my soul. On a side note…I know you and James like to take little weekend trips around Ohio. If you’re ever interested in heading north, I’d encourage you to consider checking out the quaint town of Chagrin Falls (just south of Cleveland.) Lots of cute restaurants, shops, places to walk, etc. our church is called PARKSIDE Church (our pastor is Alistair Begg and he can be heard at Truth for if you’d ever like to worship there on a Sunday if you’re in the area.) Thank you for pointing so many women to Christ. You are a blessing! ?

    1. Thank you so much for sharing, Kristen. I’ll pass that on to James. We’re always looking for places like that to visit. And we are familiar with your pastor too. Have a happy Easter!

  9. Thank you Kay, your post and His message was very timely for me. I have been carrying a heavy load of hopelessness since the passing of my sister on Jan 3rd 2020, 2 weeks later the sudden death of my other sister’s son, 3 weeks after that, the diagnosis of 3rd stage renal cancer for my husband who had his kidney removed. And now my dearest cousin who is finally losing her battle with cancer. It has been so very difficult for me. I’ve been so angry and feeling hopeless. I believe the Lord guided me to your page where I have again started to lean on the Lord for strength and now this message of Hope from you. Thank you Kay ❤ Happy Easter, He is Risen!

    1. Oh Norah. I’m so very sorry for your losses. There definitely are seasons when we wonder if the sun will ever shine again. I give you this scripture today to hold onto: “You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?
      … This I know, that God is for me.” Psalm 56:8-9. Please know that your God is for you. He has been there for each tear you’ve cried. And He is intimately familiar with your tossings. He is at work and He is preparing a future for you where there will be no more pain or suffering or loss. Bless you, dear Norah. May God’s presence and love be more real to you now than ever. ?

  10. Kay, thank you for your post today. So glad you did not apologize. God’s love is all over you, you are a sweet spitited lady of God, so glad I came across your blog. Have a Blessed Easter.

  11. Thank you for yr message of Hope! Yes, we certainly need Hope now. Are you familiar with Emily Dickinson’s poem, “Hope: Hope is the thing with feathers-that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all….” Like Christ who never stops loving us.

  12. Thank you Kay for this wonderful blessing. I needed this so much. Everyday I thank God for what He has given me, and hope that He will bless me and my family everyday. Sometimes we get so discouraged on the things going on around us and we do get into despair. Sometimes it is so hard not to get discouraged when we wish for things that have not come to pass even though we pray for it everyday. Thank God that he gives us hope. Have a wonderful Easter.

  13. Happy Good Friday Kay….

    I truly enjoyed this video and thank you so much for making it and sharing it. I believe there will be some lives come to know Christ through it. I am a born again Christian and this video put tears in my eyes towards the end. You touched me with you words and I thank the Lord for you and what you do for all the women who follow you and see how Jesus can change their life.

    God Bless you and James this Easter and have an awesome day in his house Sunday!

    Blessings and Love,

  14. Kay, we need more women like you who not only focus on outward appearance, but also inner beauty, and who are not afraid to share their faith with others!
    Happy Easter to you and your family!

  15. Thank you for your message. God is so wonderful and we will get through this dynamic. I love your post.

  16. I loved this post. Thanks for your boldness to say what God laid upon your heart. To God Be the Glory!

  17. I just recently discovered your blog and had the feeling that you were a believer in Jesus Christ. Then last night I saw your Easter Hope video. That was a really lovely message and did my heart good – we all need encouragement in our faith these days, You gave a clear and true explanation of the power of Jesus to give us salvation and hope. Thank you Kay and God bless you richly!
