Daughters of the King
The tables are set. One honoring each girl. Tonight is her night. We celebrate and honor her for who she is…A daughter of the King. Yes, a modern day princess. The room shimmers in candlelight. Each young woman has invited those most special to her. Fathers, uncles, godly men are waiting to bestow a gift like no other. Tonight celebrates the journey of personal discovery that has led them to this moment.
The journey began 10 weeks ago when these 6th grade girls began a small group study to find the princess within. Young women today are looking to find their purpose, value and strength. The world has many lies to offer that will tell them they are or who they should be. Do they find their identity in popularity? Do they find it in what others think of them? Maybe they find it when they are successful in school or sports. This study provides a place to come and seek who they are within a biblical framework to become young women of God so they can confidently face the challenges of today.
Over the past year and a half, groups of pre-teen girls at GFC have participated in the Modern Day Princess curriculum. They have searched for the princess within learning to find their identity in Christ and not in the world. They have discussed the value of a true friend and how to be one. They have searched scripture to discover the attributes of a man of integrity, how to seek wisdom from other godly women and how to act in faith and not emotions. They spend a Saturday discovering what beauty is and is not, and how to look and act like a princess.
Many are involved during these weeks: mothers, mentors, fathers, the young ladies and godly women who come and share their wisdom and unique gifts during the sessions. The crowning celebration is the perfect end to these weeks of study and affirms who they are becoming in Christ by allowing their fathers or significant godly man in their life to bestow a blessing on their daughter and crown her a modern day princess. The evening is filled with beauty, joyful tears and celebration of the daughters of the King of Kings.
