The King's Princess...an e-magazine
Although I was fifteen years old when I began my e-magazine for girls, God placed it in my heart long before I knew it.
I was thirteen when I started writing my novel, A Royal Duty. Although I never published this book, it was really the foundation that sparked the passion for my magazine. This novel was the story of 5 young teenagers who travel to Uganda on a mission trip. Throughout their adventure they learn that as children of God, that makes them a daughter--a princess--of a King. Because they were princesses they had the royal duty to live for their King and give their life to Him, no matter what that means.
This thought that we are actually real princesses isn't just a far off dream or fantasy. It's real life! 1 John 3:1 says:
"Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him."
Isn't that just amazing news?! God loved us so much that not only did He die for us to rescue us from our sins, but by doing so He gave us the opportunity to become His children! And the daughter of a King is a princess.
Yet something I wrote about in my novel was that believing we are a princess is only the first step to living like a true princess.
After completing my novel, I was passionate about letting other girls know about their princess identity in Christ. I wanted to encourage them to live like the true princess they were and inspire them to become everything God created them to be.
Then I was fifteen and I had begun receiving a magazine for girls that my friend created. And it hit me.
Maybe I could do this too.
So I did. Not one to let impossibilities or mountains stand in my way, I decided that if God wanted me to do this, He would do something amazing with it.
I didn't really have the funds at that point to get the magazine printed up professionally and mailed out to readers like I had wanted, so God gave me the next best idea. I would create my magazine on the computer and email it out to my friends who wanted to receive it.
I had never really written non-fiction or articles at this point and so it was completely new territory for me as I carefully typed out the words to my very first magazine article titled, "I Choose Jesus."
It was December 2012 as I carefully planned out the entire magazine in a Microsoft Word document, filling in pictures and including an article and recipe section.
I originally named the magazine The King's Daughter, and changed it a few months later to The King's Princess.
It was January 2013 when I attached my little magazine to an email that I sent out to about eleven of my friends and family. As I hit the send button, I had no idea what the next four years would hold...
This adventure has been one I wouldn't trade for anything. God has taken this magazine and done amazing things with it, things I could never have imagined.
In four years God has brought us over 60 readers of the magazine and has given me so many amazing friendships as a result. It's my joy to write something these girls want to read, and it is an honor that God gave me this opportunity and dream.
So there is the story of my e-magazine.
Only, it's not mine.
This magazine is God's and whatever happens with it is His too. This adventure is His and all the honor and glory goes to Him.
I write The King's Princess because I want to inspire and encourage girls to live as the princess that they truly are. I want to inspire them to live a life that makes their Father proud and to leave a legacy that will impact history forever.
