Review: Raising a Young Modern-Day Princess by:Hanna/Whiting
About the Book:
Emulating the format of Raising a Modern-Day Princess, authors Doreen Hanna and Karen Whiting seek to help parents and grandparents cultivate strong relationships and encourage the spiritual formation in their daughters using examples, Bible teaching on the fruit of the Spirit, and a variety of creative activities that are based on Galatians 5:22-23, the fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control).
By implementing the ideas in this book, mothers (as well as fathers) will be equipped to understand and guide their daughters through each step of becoming His "princess." This will include perceiving a daughter's unique personality and gifts, refining her character through training and discipline, and modeling the attributes of a daughter of the King.
This book is a follow-up to both Raising a Modern-Day Knight (by Robert Lewis) and Raising a Modern-Day Princess by Pam Farrel and Doreen Hanna. While the latter book is aimed at parents of girls ages 12 and up, this book focuses on building the Christian character of younger girls.
An awesome follow up to both the Raising a Modern-Day Knight (by Robert Lewis) and Raising a Modern-Day Princess by Pam Farrel and Doreen Hanna. Great reform and incite to the world of exposing our daughters to the light of God's love in the midst of this world and all it has to offer which sometimes isn't all that great.
The authors take the fruit of the spirit and teach us how to grow these in our young daughters and plant that seed that can later be sown into many great things. Being a girl isn't always the easiest thing, especially if the people that are you are regularly around or involved do not tend to your needs as they should. It could leave you feeling bad about yourself that can consequently follow that young lady into adulthood.
The author's describe certain situations that they have seen take place and it really helped to put the ideas presented into perspective for me and to realize that our daughters are very emotionally based and tend to thrive on acceptance. A great book to teach us how to raise our young daughters the way they should be raised.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
