Raising a Modern-Day Princess by Pam Farrel and Doreen Hanna

While my oldest daughter is only 10, this book is one that I am sure to be going back to as she gets older. I wish that my mom had had this book when I was growing up. The idea of a rite of passage is important, as childhood seems to merge with adulthood these days, with no clear rite of passage to distinguish the two. This book is one that I will keep on my bookshelf for years to come and I am going to go purchase Raising a Modern-Day Knight for my husband and I to read for our son. Loved it!

In the same tradition as Raising a Modern-Day Knight, this book is designed to equip parents to cultivate strong relationships with their adolescents. Raising a Modern-Day Princess stresses the importance of creating a rite of passage for teen girls—a defining moment in which girls can be blessed by significant adults in their lives, and a call for their families and communities to celebrate and support them as they enter womanhood. This book offers practical help in raising a generation of women to see themselves as God sees them—as daughters of the King.

Pam Farrel is a relationship specialist, international speaker, and author of over 25 books, including the best-selling Men Are Like Waffles—Women Are Like Spaghetti. Formerly a pastor's wife and director of women's ministries, Pam is now president of Seasoned Sisters. Pam and her husband, Bill, write a column on relationships and are frequent guests on shows like Focus on the Family.

Doreen Hanna is founder and president of Treasured Celebrations Ministries (treasuredcelebrations.org) and is the coauthor of Becoming a Modern-Day Princess, a biblically based rite-of-passage program for teenage girls. Doreen is a faculty member and motivational speaker for CLASS (Christian Leaders, Authors, and Speakers Services), and has been a women's Bible study teacher and trained biblical counselor for more than 25 years.
