Few things can get a conversation going in a church group like modesty and swimsuits.

But Dove-Award winner Natalie Grant took matters into her own hands when First for Women magazine asked her to pose in a swimsuit on the cover.

“I learned it would be a summer issue and I was asked to be in a bathing suit,” Grant writes on Facebook. “My first reaction was ‘NO! No no no no no no!’ But then honestly, I prayed about it.”

And with that prayer came peace, provided the magazine stick to three guidelines:

1. Grant would only appear in a one-piece.

2. The suit must be modest.

3. The photo must be the “real” her, as in: “Can’t be a crazy amount of photoshop used to make me look way younger or thinner than I am.”
