The Princess Within for Teens is a book for teens in helping them find their inner princess. The book starts with a quiz to see which Disney Princess you are most like. (I’m half Merida and half Cinderella – I guess it makes sense!) and then goes on to teach girls how they should act that will help them find their inner princess. The book focuses a lot on issues that teens have to deal with and some ways to help cope. Chapters have quizzes to find out more about yourself, which I always like and there is also an area so that the girls who read it can write some notes to themselves based on what they learned in each chapter.
This is a Christian book so of course it talks about the bible and how it relates to some of the topics as well. It was written by Serita Ann Jakes who has been involved with ministry all her life.
I liked this book, it is a quick read and a great reference for teens who may be struggling with finding themselves. The quizzes and passages certainly make you think and it also has some stories from other girls which help make you realize that you are not alone!
I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House. I was not otherwise compensated. All thoughts and opinions are mine.
About the Book
It’s time to get ready for the ball.
Girls of all ages want to feel like Cinderella at the ball. But maybe you feel more like Cinderella before the ball–overlooked, inadequate, hurting, maybe even used and abused. Sometimes it’s hard to feel beautiful, in God’s eyes or your own, when something or someone has robbed you of your inner beauty.
Serita Ann Jakes understands those feelings. She knows how past failures and present hurts can prevent you from realizing your true identity in Jesus Christ. She has helped hundreds of girls work through personal struggles, and now she wants to help you. Whether you’re struggling with poor self-esteem, difficult friendships, family problems, secret shame, or something else, above all, she wants you to know,
You are a princess–a daughter of the King!
Serita Ann’s insights and encouragement will give you the courage and strength to shed your tattered rags and find your inner princess–and to walk in confidence as a young woman who knows her true beauty comes from a Christ-honoring life.
