Today I want to talk about much-needed, and much forsaken topic in our culture…. Sadly, many girls are growing up not being taught how to be a lady. Our world is full of grown women that no longer know what it means to be a woman, or how to be a feminine and lovely lady. Feminine and ladylike behavior is becoming more and more rare. So, today we are going to talk about some very basic practices you and I can apply to our lives to become a truly lovely lady. How to Be a Lovely Lady. Spend Time in the Word. A young woman who chooses to spend time with the Lord, reading His Word each day, will be lovely inside and out.
When we read the Bible, we learn what God has to say about true womanhood and femininity. Choose to rejoice in the Lord. Joyfulness is a lovely characteristic that makes a woman truly beautiful. No, it means that in spite of it all the ups and downs of life, the joy of the Lord is our strength Neh. Joy in your heart and soul will give your face a lovely and beautiful countenance.
Putting a smile on your face is a free way to improve your outward appearance…. Not only will help you look and smell better… it will help you feel better. Taking daily showers, using deodorant, brushing your teeth, getting hair trims when necessary speaking of which, I need one myself! It never hurts to smell lovely just be careful not to over-do it! Learn how to dress appropriately for all occasions. Learn to dress modestly and appropriately for each occasion.
In a world where men are looking effeminate and women are donning all kinds of masculine styles, make sure your appearance is distinctly feminine. We should be careful to avoid manly looking hair cuts and masculine clothing styles. Keep Your Makeup Natural. Use a light hand when it comes to makeup, and learn how to apply it conservatively, and naturally. Say Please and Thank You.
Manners will forever be a vital aspect of loveliness. You cannot be a lovely woman without good manners. People love to feel appreciated. When someone gives you a gift, treats you to a meal, or makes a kind gesture, send them a thank you note in the mail. Hand-written thank you notes are becoming a lost art. Make Others Feel Special. A woman who makes others feel loved will be remembered and appreciated. Learn to be friendly, be kind, and show others that they are special and loved. Give others a genuine compliment, smile at someone who looks sad, and give a hug to someone who needs one.
People will never forget how you made them feel. How can you make someone feel special today? One of the best ways to make someone feel special, is to remember their name and use it. I must admit, I am not the best at this, but it is something we can learn to do, and we can get better at it. Such as: Sarah has strawberry blonde hair, Rachel has brilliant blue eyes, and Hannah is an amazing violinist.
The reverse is also true… if someone likes something… do it! Go and talk to that lonely girl, give flowers to the friend who loves them, and give a hug to the elderly lady who loves to receiving them. Consider the feelings of others, and then do something about it! Unfortunately, many young people young ladies included do not know how to respect those in authority. Let Your Personality Shine. Some girls are so shy they never let others see their amazing personality. I remember reading in this beauty book, that when a young women is in a group, she should smile and talk, and let her lovely personality shine.
This can be really hard to do if you are naturally a quiet person.
The key here is to focus on being a friendly person and find someone or several people that make you feel comfortable in their presence. Practice being friendly with them and let your own unique personality come out as you interact. Then gradually learn to talk and interact with others. But most of the time, a woman who is stubborn and set in her ways will never have an air of loveliness about her. The Bible compares stubbornness to iniquity and idolatry I Sam. Those two things are definitely not attributes of lovely lady!
There is something addicting about that little device with a screen. However, if you find yourself in a group, or someone wants to engage you in conversation… put your phone away! I know this can be hard to do, but always remember that real-life connections with people are so much more important and valuable than connecting over a phone.
So, choose to put your phone away! But, as best as we are able, we should make it a habit to be prompt. This might mean getting up earlier, getting ready faster, or not stopping for coffee! But whatever it takes, discipline yourself to get ready early and be prompt! Learn How to Be a Hostess.
A lovely lady knows how to be a warm and welcoming hostess. Her home and the food she serves do not need to be perfect… the most important thing is that she makes her guests feel welcomed, at home, and comfortable. You do not need to go all out — just learn how to open up your home and make people feel special.
Last but not least, what makes a woman truly lovely is her godly and virtuous heart.
This comes when we spending time in the Word of God and allow Him to mold and shape us into women of godly character. The best secret for becoming a lovely woman, is to become a Christ-Like and virtuous woman! There you go, my lovely friend. Those are 20 simple ways to be a truly lovely lady.

I also love going back to the post you wrote about ways to bless people. Hey Girl, Thanks for sharing!
Yes, there is definitely a balance between being meek and quiet vs. If a girl becomes too silly, too loud, or obnoxious, that is obviously not very meek and quiet! However, a young woman can be friendly, smile, chat, and make others feel warm and welcome without being overly boisterous, silly or loud. As we grow and mature in the Lord we can gradually learn that balance.
It also helps to ask the advice of Looking for a kind and lovely lady mom or another godly lady. Or just watch the ladies interact at church — are they being overly loud and boisterous or do they show friendliness all while displaying a meek and quiet spirit? I did not mean defiantly!
