Book Give-Away! "Raising A Young Modern-Day Princess"

Book Give-Away! In fact, 2 books will be given away to two different winners of Raising a Young Modern-Day Princess by Doreen Hanna and Karen Whiting! Isn't that the best? 

Read below how to win but in the meantime, let me tell you what Doreen says about this book.

Karen Whiting
Doreen Hanna
"When I (Doreen) was a budding author, and a Princess with a dream, I was passionate to share what God had put on my heart and had the privilege of seeing him at work in the lives of  those who had implemented the Christ centered rite-of-passage into young womanhood.  

"I took great joy in sharing these amazing results that launched me excitedly on my quest to be published. After pursing various publishers for 7 years and 12 book proposals rejections later, Focus on the Family, my dream publisher, embraced our Raising a Modern Day Princess proposal (co-author, Pam Farrell).  
I  never thought a second dream would come true.  With great surprise, Focus On the Family asked Karen Whiting and I to write Raising a Young Modern Day Princess, that was released in late Fall of 2016.

"We, Karen Whiting, my co-author, and I, chose to focus on developing the Fruit of the Spirit in little princesses’ hearts.  

  • Our goal was to equip and encourage moms, dads, and grandparents (a reality for many today) with practical ways to grow Christ like character in the hearts of their little girls.  

Each chapter contains true heartfelt and sometimes humorous stories of the authors, and other contributing moms, of their attempts to grow the Fruit of the Spirit in their little girl’s heart. It gives hope for every mom or dad who have felt they might have failed.   

There are over 100 activities included within the pages of the book. Each chapter’s activities focus on that particular Fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

  • It also includes a Dad’s Tool Box for dads or men of integrity who are influencers in a young girl’s life that will empower them to help nurture each Fruit in their little girl’s life, by example as well as by instruction and suggested activities.

Doreen continues, "I pray many parents and grandparents will find this book a resource to assist them in growing the Fruit of the Spirit in their girls' lives and they will enjoy the fruit of their labor."

  4. This book makes me think of Isaiah 62:3: "You are like a crown of jewels in God's hands." Not only do we wear a princess crown, as women (and young women) of God, but we are compared to a crown of jewels--held in God's loving hands! We have value--in Him! Blessings, Kathleen Ruckman

    2. Kathleen, Greetings from Modern Day Princess Headquarters. I too, love this verse. There is something very humbling every time I wear my crown, proclaiming my Daughter of the King status, all because of His love for me...us!

  5. A great scripture to write on a crown (or the crown bookmark on page 50). Thanks for sharing that.
