His Princess: Girl Talk With God by Sheri Rose Shepherd - Book Review

As the subtitle states, this is a book of love letters and devotions for young women. There are 40 chapters, each containing a story, love letter from God, Scripture, and a prayer.

From the back cover copy: Like a loving Father, God holds you in the palm of His hand. He loves you no matter what you wear, what you say, what you've done, or how you feel. And He wants you to live a wonderful life.
In His Princess: Girl Talk With God, Sheri Rose Shepherd helps you experience God's unending love for you....Sheri remembers what it was like to be a teen girl, and she connects your experiences with God's love. ...you will feel just how much God treasures you, His Princess.

My review: Tenderly written and beautifully produced, this hardcover book is a gem. Sheri speaks from her heart of her own struggles.  She was raised in a dysfunctional home, and battled depression, an eating disorder, and dyslexia. Although she entered beauty pageants, and won the title of Mrs. America, all that pales in comparison to being a daughter of the King! Sheri shares her heart-felt message in the pages of this devotional. Topics include Your True Identity, Are You in Barbie Bondage?, How You Feel About Yourself, True Beauty, The Movie of Life Stars You, Divinely Different, The "Mr. Right" Checklist, Facing Fear, A Beautiful Life, and many others. Sheri wants her readers to grasp how much they are treasured by their "Daddy in heaven", and to see themselves as daughters of the Most High King.
This is a book that I wish I had read as a teen, and would be the perfect gift for all the teen girls in your life.
