Every little girl wants to be a princess at sometime in her childhood- to feel special, beautiful and have everyone’s attention and love. This is a need that we should have filled by our Father in heaven.
Unfortunately, both the media and Disney Princess movies show girls that to be a princess you have to have royal blood and marry a prince to get this love. That may be a bit of a generalization, the newer Disney movies are trying to portray to girls that being strong is more important than just being beautiful.
We need to show girls that Jesus really loves them so much! The bible is full of verses about how women are the bride of Christ and how that is just such a special thing! Here are some verses to discuss with your kids:
Revelations 19: 7-9
2 Corinthians 11:2
An idea for a way to get this conversation going with girls is to have a princess craft party. Make crowns and decorate them with rhinestones, stickers, markers and then write verses about Christ’s love along the bottom as a reminder of the discussion.
