Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful;
for beauty is Gods handwriting–a wayside sacrament.
Welcome if in every fair face,
in every fair sky,
in every fair flower
and thank God for it…as a cup of blessing.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Recently a friend shared some book titles with me. Somewhere along the way, I’d heard of the books, but hadn’t checked into them. This time I did and I’m looking forward to seeing how God will use these books in the lives of our children.
The titles are: The Princess and The Kiss and The Squire and the Scroll. Each book has a Life Lessons book (sold separately) and coloring book (also sold separately). I’m really excited about the Life Lessons books. For book, the authors have come up with lessons that correspond to the book. Each lesson contains a short devotional, prayer, “jewel of truth”–Scripture, creative focus, royal reminders and helpful hints for parents.
From the back of The Princess and The Kiss: “Picking up where the storybook left off, this easy-to-use devotional covers biblical teaching on purity, relationships, and God’s plans for marriage (or singleness) with your child in a non-threatening and age-appropriate way. These life lessons are packed with wisdom from God’s Word, truths that all young girls need to know as they guard their purity, whether they’re six or sixteen. You and your daughter can build a godly heritage with these short practical, life-changing studies and activities that can be personalized for any age. An optional Princess Purity Ceremony is also included as an exciting and memorable way to formally celebrate your daughter’s growth.”
The boy’s counterpart book is very similar, except with a “knightly” focus.
I hope you will check out these books, and if you do, leave a comment to let me know.
