Review: How to be a Bible Princess by:Catherine MacKenzie

 How to Be a Bible Princess
About the Book:
If you were a princess you'd have the best wardrobe in the world with new dresses in it every day - and a tiara to match. But is that all there is to being a princess? And what does it mean to be a Bible princess? Abigail, Jehosheba, Esther and The Queen of Sheba were women who honoured God. They were also royalty! Pharaoh's Daughter and Michal were princesses who showed bravery but did they follow God? Jezebel and Herodias' Daughter are two royal women who did not love God. All these women are in the Bible and all can teach us, in their own way, how to be a Bible princess, a daughter of the King of kings, women and girls of righteousness.

My Review:
What would you do if you were a princess? Would you only focus on yourself? Help others? Kill people? This book tells of the things many Bible princess's did, good or bad. It also teaches us how to be a good Bible princess no matter what the circumstance is. What would you do if you seen a baby floating down the Nile? Or if the king was coming to kill everyone in you home?

 I know I would probably hide because that can be scary. Someone coming to kill everyone in your household, I wouldn't be able to think, much less come up with a plan to stop them. But that's not what Abigail did, she decided to make a bunch of food and meet the angry king and his army in the middle. She gave him food and pleaded with him for mercy. The king took it as a sign from God and didn't go after her husband or household. When her husband was told of what she did, he collapsed in shock. Everyone thought him dead and as of ten days later, he was. The King asked her to marry him and she rode off into to the sunset on a donkey, with five of her women by her side.

  I would love to have seen that. Or even experience that. This book will take into the life of 8 Bible Princess's, what they did in their lifetime, and what they received in the end.
