A Message From PI Founder, Nicole:

October is right around the corner, and we couldn't be more excited.

Why? Fall fashion, of course!

 

Christian Life

You Are the Star of Your Own Fairy Tale!

fairy tale girl

Confession time: Don’t you sometimes wish you lived in a fairy tale? When I was young, I know I did. I wanted to be a princess, and I wanted to be brave. I wanted to go on a quest and fight evil. I don’t think I’m alone in this — we all want to live a fairy tale life.

I have news for you…If you are a Christian, then you are living a fairy tale life. I can say this with confidence because I have read a lot of fairy tales and there are certain things that are common to fairy tales that girls love.

  • A princess or a girl who is elevated to princess status because of her character and deeds
  • A prince or a man with honor, chivalry, an honest and true character
  • A quest or journey that will allow the princess to gain something she truly desires
  • A villain – someone who is trying to keep the princess from accomplishing her goal through distraction, pain, deception and other sneaky methods.
  • Love. There is always love in fairy tales. It could be the love of a prince or a parent but there is always love.

Okay, I know what you’re thinking: You said my life is a fairy tale; so how does this apply to me?

  • You are the princess! You may not feel like it all the time, I certainly don’t, but that doesn’t make it less true. If you’re God’s girl, then your daddy is the King of Kings and that, my dear, makes you a princess.
  • You may not have found that one great guy yet, but if you’re a Christian, then there’s still a prince in your life.For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.” — Isaiah 9:6
  • The quest/journey is your life. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to be face to face with Jesus. To have Him wipe away all my tears and know that I will never again feel any negative emotions. “…and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” — Revelation 21:4
  • The villain. Just for clarification, it’s Satan. “The field is the world, and the good seed represents the people of the Kingdom. The weeds are the people who belong to the evil one. The enemy who planted the weeds among the wheat is the devil…” — Matthew 13:38-39
  • Love. You may feel totally loved or you may be in  a situation where you don’t feel loved at all; either way your Father in heaven, the King of all Kings, loves you with His whole heart and that is a way bigger, stronger and greater love than we can possibly imagine. You are loved.

So then beloved princesses, let’s live a life worthy of our royal title: princesses of grace, warrior princesses, beloved daughters of the King of Kings. Let’s live out our fairy tales, stand strong in Christ and wait patiently for our happily ever after.

“For you are all daughters [sons] of God through faith in Christ Jesus.” — Galatians 3:26

    This is all nice, but isn’t everything we do supposed to be toward the Lord? And isn’t God the star of the fairy tale? We are just his servants.

    So THIS is where I saw this! I was telling my mom about this but I forgot exactly where I saw it. I love this analogy and let me tell you, reading/watching fairy tales, especially The Chronicles of Narnia, has gotten me way more interested in my Bible and God and helped me to believe more in the supernatural. Reading my Bible was a duty before but now it is a joy. Some days I just can’t WAIT to get into my Bible. Actually I’d be reading it right now if I wasn’t in so much pain and it wasn’t across the room. (why, oh why, did Eve eat that apple!?)

    My prayer for the girls reading this article is that they may find the right man for them in the right time in the name of Jesus!!!!!!! For now, may they know that Jesus is their “prince” (prince of peace) and they are the princesses and that God loves them very much! :)

    Truly inspiring!! I really never thought of life that way!!!! It definitely shows that we need to really think positive more often and that we shouldn’t think negatively about ourselves. I know I think negatively about myself a lot, but after reading this I realize that we really have a lot to be thankful for, and that life should be happy! Because someday we will be like the princess and the prince and life “happily ever after” like in the fairy tales(: But even better!! xD

    There is a song out by GoFish, yes it is an older song, called You’re My Little Girl. I really think it applies to this article.

    Sometimes i dont feel like a princess cuz i’m too tomboyish. People haven’t directly said this to me, but they think i wont be able to find a guy that can “deal” with me.
    Thanx Jenn!! =)

    • Posted by on October 12, 2011 at 01:32

      Alex, that is baloney! I’m totally tomboyish but even tomboys can be royalty. Remember Eowyn from LOTR? She was a total tomboy, fought in the huge battle, defeated the witch-king and was just generally awesome!! She was the first lady of Rohan, a princess among her people. Not all of God’s princesses are the same, how boring would that be? Sometimes the world needs sweet, girly princesses and sometimes the world needs princess who can kick butt. Most often, the world needs both :).
      And don’t you dare believe other people when they say that you’ll never find a guy who can “deal” with you because if a guy is just “dealing” with you then he won’t be the right guy. The right guy will recognize you not for a tomboy but for the warrior princess that God made you to be!

    Love that im a princess xx

    This is so cute! Its kinda funny because I saw this on “princess day” at school for spirit week. :)

  21. Posted by on October 3, 2011 at 11:12

    This is so true. The adventure part makes me look forward to the Melinium thingie :P When god will rein, and we get to be there then well maybe, haha I really don’t have all the facts but if you were to talk to my mom about the melinum thingie than it would probably make since, just not coming through me…

    love this.love this website i love being a christian .thank you for making it feel cool to let everyone know your a christian and its cool and we slay evil!

  24. Posted by on October 1, 2011 at 08:46

    aww, this is such a cute article, thank-you so much for posting. I think it is really cool to consider the Christian walk like this.
    The funny thing is, I never wanted to be the princess. I wanted to be a queen. But not a queen who sat royally on her throne. I wanted to be the queen who dressed a lot like Arwen from LOTR and rode out and saved the heroic prince. one of the things I said to myself so often was ‘I ain’t neva gonna be NOBODY’s damsel in distress’… :D
    again, thank-you for sharing, I think that is such a precious thing to consider.

  25. Posted by on September 30, 2011 at 18:42

    my dad always told me i was a princess when i was a little girl and i never believed him. I have been really depressed lately and this really cheered me up and i think it just might change my life

      wow I am SO happy it impacted you Kat!! God Bless!

    I love this article! Lately I have felt that there are not any guys right now that like me very much. This makes me feel so good to think of it this way. I really feel like a princess after reading this!

  27. Posted by on September 30, 2011 at 18:07

    This has helped me SO much, thank you dear and God Bless :)

  28. Posted by on September 30, 2011 at 16:35

    Hey does this mean that throughout our life we won’t be happy? just wondering. because sometimes i feel like that.

    • Posted by on October 1, 2011 at 01:22

      It means that just like in a fairy tale, there will be good things and bad things but we continue the journey throughout our lives and when the journey is over, then we have our happily ever after.

      I’m sorry that you sometimes feel like life just won’t be happy. Sometimes I feel that way too, but thankfully we serve a God who says that we can run to Him and rest under His wings when things are hard. Hang in there Ali! I’m praying for you.

    Thank you for writing this Jenn! This is such a beautiful article!! :)

  30. Posted by on September 30, 2011 at 15:46

    I have heard this before. God’s love story with us is the most beautiful one. The whole bible is a written record of OUR love story with our creator. <3 What would we do without our KING JESUS. <3

    • Posted by on October 2, 2011 at 05:46

      so nice i agree.we would not even exist w/o him the world would have no good.i wish nicole made a maguisine!

    Quote I found and really liked and would like to share with you all:
    “I’m His girl. You don’t mess with God’s girl. I’ve got a sign on my forehead that say ‘You better be nice to me. My Father runs the world’.”

  33. Posted by on September 29, 2011 at 21:23

    my favorite article yet by far! I’m almost 16… and i want to marry a prince. X3 its silly but I’ve always wanted to be a princess for as long as i can remember. according to this article guess i was one all along (or so i wish) haha (:

  34. Posted by on September 29, 2011 at 20:48

    I love this Jenn.Thanks a million! I absolutely love being the daughter of the most powerful king in the world.

  35. Posted by on September 29, 2011 at 20:14

    but not all of our fairy tales are happy endings. just keep that in mind. its not all flowers and rainbows and we dont always win in this life. Not to be a debbie downer but its the truth and we need to see that being a Christian is much harder in real life than in the pages of a book.

    • Posted by JennArman on September 30, 2011 at 12:59

      Rachel – When I said wait for our “happily ever after” what I meant was on the day when we finally meet God face-to-face. Until that time we are still on the quest/journey part of our fairy tale. :)

  36. Posted by on September 29, 2011 at 18:33

    Amen! I love this article! Great job! The princess thing reminded of this quote from the Ramona and Beezus movie: “Every princess needs a little sparkle.” This quote was from Beezus who was telling her younger sister, Ramona. As for the quest part, when you said there would be no more pain, mourning, etc, that reminded me of the song, “There Will Be a Day,” by Jeremy Camp.

    This is such an amazingly beautiful article. I’ve always wanted to be a princess, and this article is gorgeous. I love to read fairy tales and watch Disney movies, and this reminds me again that these stories are so valuable, as they actually do apply to daily life! Thank you, Jenn! :)

    Okay, just wondering, why does it take about 80 years for comments to get approved?

    • Posted by Nicole on September 29, 2011 at 17:40

      because I get about 100 a day, and I read every single one of them, and many I save because I need to take the time to respond to them. The ones where there is no question, I approve right away. Does that make sense?
