A Biblical worldview should influence all areas of life. Articulating that worldview within our sphere of influence is what the Princess
Parables are all about! While surface problems (hate, murder, anger, addiction) attract media attention, they merely reflect and are symptomatic of the deeper need we have as people...the need for character! Character determines our actions. Character determines our responses, regardless of the circumstances presented to us in life. It defines us and tells others who we really are! Character is written on the heart of every person. It is universal and transcends culture, race, age, social status, religion, gender and nationality.
Godly character marks the life of a true princess!! For seven years Princesses Joy, Grace, Hope, Faith and Charity have been a large part of my life and I have grown to love each of them, as distinct and separate personalities, with unique engiftments and an adventurous story to tell. They form a cohesive body of work that speaks to the need for early development of godly character in our little princesses in a pragmatic way they can relate to with Biblical terms attached. I recently read, “A dear old Quaker lady, distinguished for her youthful look, was asked what she used to preserve her appearance. She replied sweetly, “I use for the lips, truth; for the voice, prayer; for the eyes, pity; for the hand, charity; for the figure, uprightness; and for the heart, love” (Jerry Fleishman). The Princesses are designed to inspire godly thoughts and actions. The key of this wise “Quaker lady’s” answer and the challenge to us is to maneuver victoriously through this new day and its many opportunities... each revealing our TRUE character through our moment-by-moment responses!
