And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. Luke 1:28
Mary, the mother of Jesus, seemed to be just an ordinary girl, but in God's eyes she was a princess. She demonstrated the qualities of a girl who was highly favored in the eyes of God.
This week I would like to offer Raising a Young Modern Day Princess by Doreen Hanna and Karen Whiting. Have you noticed that no two children even in the same family have the same personalities? The authors of this book help us understand the differences in our children's personalities and how to tap into those personalities to encourage our own princesses to grow in the Lord.
The book is filled with activities to help our daughters grow in the fruit of the Spirit. It's not just a book for moms.There are ideas and activities for dads to help them build a lasting relationship with their daughters.
I especially like the way the book is designed with short, quick reads for our busy lives and the materials for activities are easily accessible and age appropriate.

Do you know the fruits of the Spirit?
Take a look at Galatians 5:22,23.
Here at Christmas, we often try to show love, joy, and peace by giving to those less fortunate, wishing others Merry Christmas, and singing carols of peace on earth.
But what about the rest of the year? Don't let the Christmas spirit fade with the new year.
Have mom and dad help you cut out a bowl shape.
Then cut out nine different fruit shapes.
Write the name of a fruit of the Spirit on each fruit.
Display your fruit bowl in a prominent place.
Each week choose a fruit and discuss what it means.
An example might be: How do you show love?
Write an example of how you showed love on the back of the fruit.
You could do this every day for the week. Then you would have 7 different ways to show love.
The next week choose a different fruit, discuss, practice and write.
At the end of the nine weeks, think about how this activity has changed your thoughts and actions toward others.
