Example text

After three years filled with hundreds of moments like the one by the water fountain at Crestview Elementary, listening to the taunts and barrages of snickering boys who examined and criticized nearly every part of my anatomy, I was tired. Tired of trying to convince myself that someday I would be beautiful. Tired of hoping for a noble prince to rescue me and carry me away to his castle. My desire to be loved and cherished by a gentle knight had not diminished, but had only grown more intense. Yet I had begun to question whether such a fairy tale could ever happen to me.

1 Let me mention a few practical things before we begin our conversation. Though it is impossible to truly describe the “God experiences” that have taken place in my own life, I have written about them here as if they were actual, word-for-word conversations in hopes of helping translate the concept of interacting with the Spirit of God into simple, everyday language. Additionally, whenever this book uses paraphrased scriptures to make their messages easier to grasp, the actual translations of those scriptures are provided in the endnotes.

Snow White gave up her cute little cottage with the cute little dwarfs; Sleeping Beauty gave up her comfortable bed, pj's, and never-ending slumber; and the Little Mermaid gave up her mer-family, her special fins that allowed her to race with the dolphins, and her extremely cool underwater caves—all for the men of their dreams. In every story, the princess and her prince lived happily ever after. Now that I had finally found a prince who loved me and found me beautiful, I knew that in order to keep his devoted love, I too would have to give him something.
