Lady in Waiting for Little girls by Jackie Kendall & Dede Kendall

About the Book:
Every fairy tale has a moment when the prince finally dances with the leading lady. A little girl’s devotion to God is to be that of a princess dancing with her Prince. Lady in Waiting for Little Girls is a mother-daughter mentoring book that is to be enjoyed together. Jackie Kendall, best-selling author of Lady in Waiting, and Dede Kendall have written this book specifically to prepare the hearts of young girls for a continual relationship with their heavenly Father.

Dede and Jackie Kendall are sisters who have devoted many years to teaching, counseling, and speaking God's Word. Dede Kendall earned her master's degree in early childhood education from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and is currently the elementary assistant principal at summit Christian School. For more than 15 years she has worked and traveled with Jackie Kendall's Power to Grow ministries, teaching Lady in Waiting seminars across America. Jackie has coauthored the best-selling book and workbook for single women title Lady in Waiting. As president of Power to Grow Ministries, Jackie is a sought-after conference speaker for people of all ages and stages of life. Dede resides in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida; and Jackie resides in West Palm Beach, Florida.

My Review:
There are choices we must make in life; this book is designed to help the little princess learn to make Godly choices. This is a devotional for mother-daughter together time. Mom's can strengthen the heart of her daughter in truths from God's Word. As mothers it is our privilege to pass on a Godly heritage. This book is targeted to 5-9 year olds. Growing in God's wisdom begins in early childhood.

Some things you'll find in this boo:

  • The Heart of a Princess Quiz
  • Love Notes sprinkled throughout the book.
  • 10 Lessons about choices to be made
    1. Obedience
    2. Virtue
    3. Diligence
    4. Devotion
    5. Faith
    6. Security
    7. Contentment
    8. Patience
    9. A Royal Heart
    10. Prepared for Her Prince
  • Message to mom
  • Tiara truth (the character trait is introduced here)
  • Story
  • Princess Portrait - Focuses on Biblical character with this trait
  • Princess Pearls - Bible verses to look up on the trait
  • Princess Power - Hands on fun, age appropriate activity to do
  • Princess Prayer
  • Princess Pledge - A journal exercise

I wish my girls weren't teens. I'd use it with them. This is a very nice book and what better thing to do together than dig deeper into God's Word with your Princess in Waiting. Buy one and give it to your princess for Christmas. Then start the year off right together learning what God would have her to do.

You always have the best giveaways Abi! I have two little princesses who mean the world to me. They are both funny, smart and beautiful; I pray every day that my daughters grow to serve the Lord and be strong in His love. Looks like this devotional has covered many important topics. :)
