A Girl Fit for Royalty

If you stopped by today from Encouragement Caf e or Crosswalk , WELCOME! So glad you are here.  We often sell ourselves short when it come to seeing ourselves as God sees us. Most little girls have no problem seeing themselves as a princess complete with fashion jewelry and lace trimmed gowns. But somewhere along the way we go from twirling in front of the mirror, to loathing the image reflected back at us.  We have let our looks become our identity. We have let our culture and our world influence how we see ourselves. We have defined ourselves by a number on the scale and that is not okay! We are loved by our Heavenly Father, The King, and He sees us as His beautiful creation. Let's quit letting the chatter in our minds make us feel bad about ourselves and let's learn to see ourselves as His Girl! We don't need to teach our girls to have more self-esteem, we need to teach them God-esteem.  The full devotional from Encouragement Cafe and Crosswalk is posted below. Plea

All of them presented themselves as opportunities throughout the year and doors opened that we chose to walk through. My husband pulled off an amazing surprise 40th birthday celebration for me with my dearest friends and family. Such a sweet night of love, celebration, and surprises for me. If you need
