A Princess Story
Princess stories abound in today’s media-driven culture. If Disney’s success is any indication, our appetite for all-things-princess has truly become insatiable. Ever wonder why that is? Could there be something significant about these princess stories that goes beyond the realm of entertainment? I certainly believe that’s true. In fact, I believe we’re drawn to these stories because they speak to something buried deep within us—the longing to actually step into the shoes of a princess. Just imagine having your own adventure filled with drama, magic, and enough danger to keep things interesting. Add a prince to the mix and it would rival any chick flick on the market.
But what if the truth is that you’re already ina princess story—and you’re the one playing the starring role? In this book, I’ll show you how the gospel of Jesus Christ contains its own real-life fairy tale that includes not just a princess and her prince, but an evil villain, an awful monster, an epic battle, and a daring rescue. Though it’s written with young women in mind, the story truly speaks to women of all ages, reminding us of who we really are and who we’re meant to become. Perhaps it’s time we stop living vicariously through the lives of those animated princesses and step into our own bold, exhilarating adventure.
My thoughts: Jaci does a wonderful job of drawing women of all ages in with this book about being a princess in Jesus' kingdom. I personally love fairy tales (most of us grew up dreaming of fairy tales, right?:)), so I enjoyed this book tremendously! It is engaging as she shares her personal struggles and triumphs, as well as weaves in other stories. I love how she fits Narnia in as well.;)
While I would say this book is best suited for young women, I think that women of all ages will benefit!
I received this book from Cedar fort in exchange for my honest review.
