The One Year My Princess Devotions (preschool edition) by Karen Whiting is designed for girls ages 3-5. Written from the perspective that every little girl is a princess of the Kingdom of God, the book offers 365 devotions designed to be easily accomplished by younger children. Each page begins with a title that focuses on a Christian topic such as loving family or charity and then is divided into four sections:
- “Royal Words” are snippets from the bible paraphrased in easy to understand language that provide the motivation behind that day’s devotional.
- “Princess Thoughts” are then offered as a moment of explanation to further expound upon the Royal Words.
- “A Prayer for the King,” a short prayer, just one to two sentences is given to say aloud and read together.
- Finally a “Princess in Action” section details a simple, yet highly symbolic activity that can be completed as part of the devotional. These activities are often as simple as thanking a special person who has done something nice for the princess, practicing an indoor voice, or sharing toys with friends and/or siblings.
The devotions are labeled according to month and day and ideally would be started at the first of the year, but can be started at any time. This would make a fantastic gift for Christian families raising one or more of God’s princesses! Our family really enjoyed this book and look forward to using it with our own little princess 🙂
