I AM a Princess…how do I know? My father called me “Princess” most of my life! My given name is Jacqueline Johnson, and I am delighted to be co-author with Jeanna Young for the Princess Parables Series. The purpose of this new blog, is to love and encourage you wonderful mothers - working so hard to raise your children with character and love for Jesus.
I was born in St. Joseph, Missouri as our country was resurfacing from its worst Depression. I attended parochial schools and I was baptized, “catechizemized”, confirmed and on my way to hell! I knew something real was missing in my life and I desperately needed purpose and definition to all that was going on around me. While attending the University of Arizona, pledging Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, I was challenged to visit a church that introduced me to a God I could know personally through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ. This was the missing piece…a person! When Christ walked into my life it was never the same again! I became part of a true royal kingdom! “…He has rescued us out of the power of darkness and translated us into the kingdom of His Son…”(Colossians 1:13). I knew God’s hand and call was on me, and my life from that day until this moment has been filled with change and eternal purpose.
My co-author Jeanna and I had long searched for wholesome stories for our children, and God truly put it on our hearts to create the Princess Parables Series. The stories introduce a character quality in the name of the Princess and take the storyline from a Parable that was taught by the greatest teacher that ever lived. They have been specifically written to put a functional tool into the hands of young mothers, grandmothers, teachers…that will proactively allow you to nurture the character of your little princess with a godly worldview. The Princesses are designed to inspire godly thoughts and actions in your daughters. I can’t wait to get to know you, sweet reader, and inspire you on your journey.
