How to be God’s Little Princess

 

How To Be God’s Little Princess by Sheila Walsh

 

From fashion to handmade crafts, How To Be God’s Little Princess embraces most everything in a girl’s life. Computer safety, table manners, and friendship etiquette are covered. A scripture verse is appropriately incorporated into each section, though not preachy or contrived. It always fit the subject in a language girls can grasp.

Included are step-by-step craft instructions, fun quizzes, and self evaluation opportunities.

 

I got this book with my eleven year old niece in mind. From the frilly cover, I wondered if it was too young for her. But after a few pages, confidence grew that this was the perfect age. It targets girls making that transition from baby dolls to fashion, but not in too much of a rush.

The tone throughout the book remained conversational and on the appropriate level for the target audience.

It touches on modesty, something I greatly appreciated. One passage encouraged girls to shop for skinny boys’ jeans to find some with higher waists. It advised girls to stand in front of a mirror and raise their arms to ensure their shirts were long enough.

Sheila Walsh called on the reader to seek the advice of “royal advisors” (mom, grandmothers, aunts, etc.). The scripture verses used impressed me in their gentle encouragement to seek the kind of real beauty God wants girls to have, beginning with the inside.

I especially loved the last activity in creating a system for scripture memorization. Following the simple steps, girls can have 52 verses memorized every year. What better way to cultivate beauty?

Yes, I highly recommend this book for young girls.

 

For Him,

Sarah Elisabeth

      Aw, that’s so sweet, Lisa 🙂

      Actually as I read this book, it was quite familiar in everything my mama taught and trained me in growing up.

    Thanks for sharing this Sarah! It’s great to have resources like this available. When my oldest daughter was young, I couldn’t find much out there. There’s also the Gigi’s DVD series that my grandaughter Finley loves. (for younger girls 5-8

      Gigi looks so cute! My nieces were just out of that age range when I discovered that series.
