Hi, I'm Joyce Alice, a Christian woman who wears a head covering during worship and prayer. This blog is intended for WOMEN ONLY, not for men. I hope this website will be helpful to other Christian women who are seeking to understand 1 Corinthians 11:2-16. There is a link to a Table of Contents at the bottom of each page. My main website is www.TheJoyfulEye.com. Thanks for your interest!
