Designed to Shine
The opening line in Stillwater Promise, the third book in Minnesota Moonlight, the 3-in-1 collection I wrote with Cathy Wienke, is "Not every princess has a prince." Sara Lewis is trying to convince herself only some women need a prince.
I have the privilege of speaking at a women’s retreat in Manhattan, Kansas in three weeks. The message God pressed on my heart reflects on Psalm 16:11—“In Your presence is fullness of joy.” I’ll be talking about how, as women, we are daughters of the King. That makes us princesses, ladies. I believe we were created to crave time with, and approval from, our Heavenly Prince. Time with Him is the key to true joy.
I’ll be giving examples of how, from the time we’re little, we know, deep down, we are destined to be royalty. We are princesses at heart...designed to shine our Father's glory. I'd love some examples of how we are drawn to things that glimmer and shine. Share your favorite “sparkly thing”—be it the fairy wings you wore as a child, or that sequin-smothered gown waiting for an occasion in the back of your closet. Men, what was the last glittery gift you bought for a special girl or woman in your life? Everyone who leaves a sparkly comment by Monday, October 11 has a chance of winning a copy of Minnesota Moonlight.
