Overview


The Bible’s frequently referenced chapter of Proverbs 31 defines godly womanhood. In Raising a Princess, greatly respected child advocate John Croyle asks, "How do you equip a daughter to become the kind of woman who is described in Proverbs 31?"
 
After all, a woman like that doesn't appear out of nowhere. Somebody taught her to rise before dawn to provide for her household. Somebody gave her the moral compass to reach out her hand to the needy. Somebody taught her the business principles that made it possible for her to consider a field and buy it. Perhaps most importantly, somebody gave her a sufficiently strong sense of self that made it possible for her to go out and make a huge impact on the world around her.
 
Raising a Princess begins with the end in mind. The end is the Proverbs 31 woman; Croyle keeps her squarely in view as he looks at what parenting techniques help the reader to raise a princess who will someday be a queen.
 
Based on Croyle's life and experience parenting more than 1,800 abused and neglected children at Big Oak Ranch, alongside his two biological children, the book is organized around eight virtues a parent can build in his or her princess:
 
 
P: Praiseworthiness
 
R: Righteousness
 
I: Initiative
 
N: Nurture
 
C: Character
 
E: Empowerment
 
S: Servant-Heartedness
 
S: Stability

Meet the Author


John Croyle rose to recognition as an All-American defensive end at the University of Alabama during head coach Paul "Bear" Bryant's legendary tenure.

Today the outreach has grown to three branches with the addition of a girls ranch and a Christian school. John, his wife Tee, and the Big Oak organization have raised more than 1,800 kids to date.

    Fair warning: This book may make those of you with tender hearts

    Fair warning: This book may make those of you with tender hearts - cry… hard.

    Not all of us are called to be an advocate for children but all of us who follow Christ should do everything they can to stand up for and help any child who is not being treated the way they should – even if all we can do about that treatment is pray!

    No. It’s not enough to just be a good parent to your own children, although that is one good way to show others how children should be treated.

    It’s also very important to raise up our children the way we want them to raise up their own.

    If more parents were properly informed of how to be the parent that God calls us to be, there would be a lot less children in need of wonderful organizations like the Big Oak Ranch.

    I wholeheartedly recommend this book to EVERY parent! Having said that, it really doesn’t matter if you have children yet or not and it doesn’t matter if you have children but only boys…

    Boys need the principles in this book just as much as girls. They also need to know to look for a young woman with all of these principles to marry one day. And they need to know how to incorporate these principles in their own children one day.

    I feel it would be beneficial reading for parents who might not have had the best childhood themselves.

    After reading this book with tears running down my cheeks, I realized that I was just as much in need of these principles as my daughter. I have spent so much of my life thinking very little of myself – because I listened, far too much, to the people in the world. Unfortunately the world is, far too often, full of people who do everything they can to drag you down.

    And I didn’t have a clue that I needed to be praiseworthy, righteous, stable… I never knew how important it was to have a servant’s heart or Christ-like character. Nobody taught me – and it wasn’t really my mother’s fault either because nobody taught her either. And my dad is another story that I won’t go into here…

    But since I became a mother, I have finally begun to follow God’s leading in my heart and in my life and with that has come a greater understanding of what being a mother means according to his word.

    And I feel that this book will be a tremendous help in that endeavor. As it would be for any other parent who is trying to raise a Proverbs 31 woman!

    There were two things that drew me to this book. The first is Jo

    There were two things that drew me to this book. The first is John Croyle himself. Anyone that would give up a promising career in the NFL to start a place like Big Oak Ranch for abused and neglected children is someone that I want to listen to.




    The second thing that drew me was the principle of raising daughters with the end in mind. In the end these girls are going to go on and raise daughters of their own and pass on to them what they know. If we take that into account we have a long range perspective that will impact not only our daughters but our daughter's daughters and beyond.




    Most of the concepts outlined in the book aren't new, they are just under used in our current culture. John's systematic approach to raising our girls to be godly women is not only doable but practical as well.  One of the main things that you are going to come away with is the knowledge that ultimately what YOU do and model is what is going to stick with your daughter. So with that in mind I think this is really more a book about who you are as a parent than who your daughter is.




    I enjoyed this book and found it to be very thought provoking. I think it would make a great addition to any parent's reading list that desires to raise a daughter worthy of the KING.




    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
