Valentine’s day is here. Love and romance is on the air! What better time than now to read the Life Lessons from the Princess and the Kiss book by Jennie Bishop. I have already posted about the story book the Princess and the Kiss but my daughter and I are going through the 21 easy-to-use devotional lessons which covers biblical teaching on purity, relationships and God’s plans for marriage (or singleness). I like it because the words used are non-threatening and used in an age-appropriate way. Each lesson has several activities which can help your daughter remember each lesson more vividly.
It is truly a great tool to help moms openly talk to their daughters about issues on purity, having a good conscience, sincere faith and marriage. I appreciate the questions and the suggested discussion in each lesson. It has allowed me to discuss issues about integrity, guilt, purity and love with my daughter. Some lessons are repetitive but I believe that it was done so to stress the importance of the lessons.
I know that after 5 years, I would need to discuss this again with her but I am glad that I am able to plant seeds as early as now. Hopefully, by then, we would be able to do a simple purity commitment ceremony as suggested in the last part of the book. We will do it as a reinforcement to what we have learned in this study and for her to commit to saving that kiss for her future.
