Sometimes you just have to read things that are out of your normal genre.
Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been reading stories from Bible Stories For His Beautiful Princess. That’s because I have a three year old daughter, and she is completely fixated on princess stuff right now. Princess pajamas. Princess movies. Princesses wear their hair like this Daddy. Princesses dance this way Daddy.
In fact, my daughter is fully convinced that she is a princess. So when I saw the opportunity to read and review Bible Stories For His Beautiful Princess, and enjoy doing it with my daughter, that was a no-brainer for me.
My daughter and I have really enjoyed the time together.
Bible Stories For His Beautiful Princess isn’t really a Bible. The stories are Bible stories, but they are simplified and generalized to the point where they can only really be referred to as “Bible-based.” That’s quite alright, though. My daughter is only three, after all, and the finer details of most of the stories contained in these pages would be lost on her. But at the same time, these stories serve to teach her the basics of many of the main themes found throughout the Bible.
After each story, there are two closing elements. There is the Princess Jewel. This is a brief value lesson derived from each story. My daughter and I say these out loud together, enjoying finding the jewel of truth from each story.
The other element is the Princess Prayer. This is a brief prayer that seeks God’s help in applying the lesson learned form each Bible story. Again, my daughter repeats these after me, learning to ask God for his leading and becoming quite comfortable praying.
Bible Stories For His Beautiful Princess is an incredible resource that I enjoy sharing with my daughter. And she’s excited about it as well. After all, it is a princess Bible, and she carries it proudly to church, around the house, and has even been seen sleeping with it.
If you have daughters, and if they love princesses and princess things, then you need to check out Bible Stories For His Beautiful Princess. It’s an incredible opportunity to spend some quality time together.
My daughter’s favorite story so far is the story of Ruth? What Bible stories do your kids enjoy? You can leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
