How can a woman live with hope . . . in the midst of reality? You were once a little girl, dreaming of "happily ever after" like a fairy-tale princess. But unlike the fantasy world of Sleeping Beauty or Cinderella, reality has hit you hard. Living in the not-so-fairy-tale world of laundry, kids, carpools, and your sometimes not-so-charming prince, you wonder how your heart wil survive, because what you have isn't even close to what you hoped for. Hang on! Real hope is found in the tension between the two?in an invisible kingdom. This place is where you discover the true heart of a princess?one full of dreams, wonder, delight, and joy. With rich insights and compelling stories, Nicole helps you discover the timeless truths that can transform a woman's heart into the heart of a princess. You are recognized by the King, loved by the Prince, and promised the happiest "happily ever after" of all times.… (mais)

Nicole Johnson is a Christian performer whom I first saw when she traveled with the Women of Faith conferences. She gives short, emotional one-woman performances on various themes, and overall does so powerfully. So, one year I bought four of her books - this was one of them, her newest at the time. Keeping a Princess Heart in a Not-So-Fairy-Tale World sounds good, I thought. It could give me suggestions for right living or how to keep my identity as a child of the King in a world that tells me I'm not so special.

Unfortunately, it's less of a how-to and more of a feel-good book. I suppose my main hang-up is that most loaded word: princess. What, exactly, is meant by princess? In this day and age, it might mean anything from being a girly girl to a prima donna. That's not really what she means, but I would have gone along with much less resistance if she clearly defined "princess" in the beginning. But all she really says clearly is that it's our name because of what God calls us. What does God call us? Princess. Oh. Well, why not quote some of the Scriptures of what God does call us - like holy or "fearfully and wonderfully made." In all six (yes, I counted; I was bored) Scriptures that she does quote, not one of them have to do with what God names us. (And if you think that logic is bad, wait 'til you get to why postmodern thinking is bad...) An alright read that never seemed off-base, but could have had much more substance. ( )

Wonderful book teaching women to look at themselves as God sees them; a Princess; daughter of the Most High King. ( )

It was pretty good, but aimed at women are disappointed with their not so fairy tale lives. The book discusses how we grow up hearing, watching, or reading about the princess who lives happily ever after and want that in our lives, and don't really get to have that in this world, but that we can hold on to the hope through our relationship with Jesus. We want Prince Charming to come rescue us (hmmm...) but the only true Prince Charming is Christ and we have to have a good relationship with him before we can have a good relationship with the man in our lives (whether that be a brother, father, boss, or significant other (ie. spouse)) ( )

Shows how readers can discover their "princess heart" and keep it alive by belief.
