Princess Prayers | FLF and Book Review

Here I am, combining two things in one post again. ;) But really, this is a great and cute book to feature for First Line Friday...


"Good morning, Lord, it's time to rise.
The sun is shining bright.
I've got my day ahead of me.
Please help me do what's right."
("Princess Prayers" by Crystal Bowman)

Amazon has a beautiful preview of the book here (oh, and you can buy it there too ;) ).

Now, before I do my review, there are these other lovely participants of FLF... Please note that I may not fully endorse all of the books that these bloggers read or the content in these blogs.

My Review
What little girl doesn't love princesses?
And what is sweeter than cuddling with your little princess (be it daughter or sister) with adorable poems?

"Princess Prayers" is part of The Princess Parables series ("I Can Read" books) and features artwork from the various other princess stories. The poems go from "My Morning Prayer" to daily life, to scary stuff (like storms), and ends with "My Nighttime Prayer." Each of the poems are two stanzas long, have wonderful rhythmic flow, and truths that girls are able to apply to their everyday lives.

I loved reading through these poems/prayers with my youngest sister (and she loved them too). They are very easy to read and flow well (I have a hard time with some poetry just not flowing). I was also thrilled to realize the depth of these poems. Many Biblical truths are incorporated in the poems such as God never leaving, God loving us even though we sin, God taking away our fear. One poem reminds me closely of Psalm 139, where we can go nowhere from God's presence. The poems are strengthened by having a Bible verse at the bottom of each poem (I prefer KJV and am not sure what translation these are in). 

*I received this book from BookLook Bloggers and was happy to provide my review in return*

Happy Friday! My first line is: “For a moment she couldn’t breathe, and then the barest whisper passed her lips – half spontaneous praise half simple awe. ‘Oh my… I’ve found Paradise!’ ” From Spring Raine by Delia Latham

HE IS WORTHY

Honor the Lord you heavenly beings: honor the Lord for his glory and strength. Honor the Lord for the glory of his name. Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness. Psalm 29:1-2

I HAVE FLOWN A LOT OF MILES in the past twenty years, so not surprisingly, I take many things about the experience for granted. From Worship Changes Everything by Darlene Zschech

That sounds like a very sweet book.

I'll be reviewing The Patriot & The Loyalist by Angela K. Couch, this Monday on my blog, so I'll share the first line from that book:

I am reading The Noble Servant by Melanie Dickerson (ARC from NetGalley) "Where do you think you are going looking like a beggar?"

It is definitely an adorable book. :) Kind of goes to the top of my list for "Adorables." ;)
