My niece enjoying the Princess Kit

What little girl hasn’t dreamed of living like a royal? How to Be God’s Little Princess by Sheila Walsh taps into that dream by using a princess theme to share principles and tips on all areas of life. The book is filled with the kinds of quizzes, games, and projects that girls enjoy, along with practical advice on cultivating both inner and outer beauty. The topics covered include, how to make the best pink cookies, earn money at home, be respectful, be a good friend, help Mom, wear a tiara, and live for Jesus each day. The lovely spiritual theme of godly girlhood is woven throughout. In fact, my favorite chapter guides young ladies in how to have an inner beauty makeover, with memorizing Scripture as one of the beauty essentials.

This charming book is perfect for tweens. Often when preteen years hit, social situations became fraught with peril, leaving kids feeling awkward and embarrassed. This book is a wonderful tool for helping an unsure girl transition into a confident young lady. Enter my giveaway and maybe you can share this book with the little princess in your life!

BTW, Sheila is also the creator of the award-winning Gigi, God’s Little Princess books, products, and dvds. Follow this link to see the Gigi products available from Amazon.

  5. I would love to win this for my little niece! As I was looking through the pictures here of your niece and nephew, I was thinking about mine and how my niece loves girly/princess things :).

  6. What a great giveaway, Renee Ann! You have such a generous heart as does Sheila:) Years ago I read a bio by Sheila and heard her speak at a Woman of Faith conference. Love that accent! I see such a need for her message and the princess theme. I’m mid-century here and still want to be a princess! Bless you for your wonderful blog.

    • Litfuse was generous in giving me an extra kit to give away. I love sharing great books and such for kids and adults! I’ve also heard Sheila at WOF–years ago. The conference was a great experience! I’m glad you stopped by, Laura!

  7. This would be great for my daughter, she is a little princess who does love God with all her heart. I think she would really enjoy this.

    I’d give it to my daughter, we watched the Cinderella movie – so she’d really enjoy seeing how a real princess lives if we win.

  10. I mentor a little princess through the kinship program in our town – only she is not into the princess thing at all. She hates pink; black and lime green are her favorite colors. I am always on the look out for things in green, or with cats or wolves or horses on them. No tiaras for my little one. But I do know another little princess. I work with her mom, who almost died right in front of her daughter a few years ago. This little princess has had some big-time psychological damage and is still learning to heal. She would love to be God’s princess.

    • The girl you mentor sounds like a character. And your friend’s daughter definitely needs to know that she’s God’s little princess. Thanks for sharing about the special young ones in your life, Chris! You’re entered in the drawing.

  11. I have the perfect little princess to give this to, my grandaughter! She is her daddy’s little princess and she will tell you “I am a princess!” I read and reviewed the book on my blog. I didn’t know there was a whole kit that could go with it! Awesome!!

  12. What’s your favorite princess movie? I’m a super Cinderella fan =D

    How to Be God’s Little Princess looks like a good book. It’s a good gift idea =D

    • You can’t go wrong with Cinderella! My favorite is Beauty and the Beast. I love the transformation of the cursed characters . . . BTW, will you be watching the royal wedding? 🙂
