The Princess Within- For Teens

Jakes, Serita Ann. The Princess Within (For Teens): Discovering Your Royal Inheritance. Bloomington, MN: Bethany House Publishers. 2014.

SUMMARY:
princessBased on the fairytale Cinderella, preteen and teenage girls are invited to get ready for the ball. Included in each section is an “Ella” story, music playlist of uplifting songs, a brief self-survey on different topics, a relevant Bible story/ verses, a brief author’s narrative of her life, encouragement to turn to God for direction, and a chance to consider your own story as it relates to the chapter’s topics. Great tool as a Bible study for teens.

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Such a wonderful premise…relating to a Disney princess yet being something so much bigger, a daughter of the King! This book followed the theme flawlessly with some good ideas; the music playlist was actually a fantastic addition! Targeted for preteen and early teen audiences, this book is very up-front on many issues, not skirting them nor merely alluding to them…even going so far as to tackle some of life’s tougher obstacles (addictions, relationships, self-esteem, etc). The Princess Within For Teens appears to be a teen version of the book,The Princess Within: Restoring the Soul of a Woman, by the same author.

RATING:
4.5 (out of 5) pennies
