During the end of last October, I was at my grandparent’s house visiting. The newspaper came (as usual) and I was sitting next to my grandmother as she read it. When she got to the section that is considered the “faith” section, I saw an advertisement for a wedding dress. Weddings are usually held in a church building, so that’s nothing out of the blue. But, the wedding dress was not a “normal” dress. The dress was called “Barely There,” and let me tell you, it was barely there!! They even put a picture of a girl wearing the dress in the advertisement! There are so many things that are wrong with that wedding dress, but that’s another topic for another article. Things that are barely there are not the best, like barely there clothing or chocolate that is barely there. But what about your faith? Is it barely there?
