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.
Raising A Modern-Day Princess is a great read for parents of girls. Our daughters are precious. And they need to know that. The world is going to try to make them to feel like they are anything less than God’s masterpiece, and it’s our job as parents to instill in them the fruits of the spirit and let them know of Gods love. This book tells real life stories, activities, and assessments to help us understand our girls and helps us with our parenting styles to build up the oh-so important character our girls need. I love how the book has activities for dads as well. Our princesses need their dads as much as they need their moms. The bible promises us if we train up our children the way they should go, they will not depart from it. If we use this book to train our daughters up in the fruits of the spirit, to have faithfulness, and love, then we are sure to raise wonderful princesses of the King.
I recommend this book for those who have daughters. This is a wonderful resource and can be used for years to come. I am glad to have it in my collection. I rate this book a 4/5 stars.
