"Waiting for your Prince" by Jackie Kendall

About this book:

  Become the young woman you were made to be while you wait for God’s best.
  You are beautiful, valuable, and completely unique from anyone else who has ever lived in history!
  If this is really true, why would we want to act like everyone else—especially the world?
  In Waiting for Your Prince, Jackie Kendall encourages you to live like the priceless treasure God created you to be.
  You’ll find out how:
  Purity does not keep you from enjoying life; it saves you from giving away your most precious possession, identity Waiting for God’s best protects you from losing your self-worth by dating losers Saying “Yes” to Jesus signs you up to live the extraordinary life God has prepared just for you Wait for God’s best and show the world that you have something that so many desperately want: You are secure in the young woman God made you to be!”

My personal Rating- 

{Add 1-2 Stars for girls in Public School}
This was a good non-fiction. It was aimed for girls ages 9-12, but I can’t say I say give this book to girls I know in that age range. But I can see Public School girls that age reading this book. It was personally very simple to me but I did enjoy it. I have to give the author a round of applause, though, for quoting Katie Davis and Kylie Biscutti. :)

See y’all on Wednesday with a new review!
