I have six nieces and over the years I’ve bought birthday presents and Christmas gifts for them as well as other little nick-nacks from corner shops or supermarkets. It didn’t take me long to cotton onto the fact that the girls liked pastels and pinks. So for one birthday I bought my little niece Lois a pink cuddly throw. Her father asked me ‘How many flamingos did you have to kill in order to make that?’ So you get the picture – Pink is the thing. Princesses are also a favourite with the younger nieces. I suppose it was realising what my nieces liked that made me think about the wonderful stories in the bible that feature princesses. That sparked the idea that I should really write a book about them. Dale Ralph Davis had also done a sermon on Jehosheba – The Woman who Saved Christmas so with that story in mind I made a start. The completed book has the story of Pharaoh’s Daughter; Abigail Esther and The Queen of the South as well as Michal; Jezebel and Herodias’ Daughter. All these stories in the bible of the good and the bad princesses have something valuable to teach young girls – the women of the next generation. If I was to sum up what the book really teaches it would be – God doesn’t care about whether you’ve got a crown on your head or a tiara in your cupboard. It’s not about if you’re a princess – it’s about whether you’re a child of God and part of the true Heavenly royal family.
