The Princess Guide
Faith Lessons from Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty
Jennessa Terraccino Teresa Tomeo
The Princess Guide uses fairy tales—specifically the stories of three princesses (Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty)—to inspire young women to dignity, femininity, and fervent faith. With a timeless yet relevant voice, it explores issues important to women today. Scenes from the fairy tales are the backdrop for a new way to look at beauty, vocation, sexuality and chastity, modesty in fashion, and friendship. Personal stories and passages from Scripture, the wisdom of the saints, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church help you discover the princess within.
