Renee Helps Kids Understand

“Pride is one of the most common sins among Christians. It can be quite a struggle to overcome. But how does a child deal with this common problem? With colorful illustrations, Renee helps kids understand that only by losing our pride do we truly win by becoming more like Christ––the best prize of all.”

—Michelle S. Lazurek, Multi-genre award winning author, literary agent and certified writing coach

“‘A Princess Problem with Envy’ is a very practical book to use with children because it uses an imaginative narrative to convey biblical truth. Using children in both a nuclear family and in an allegorical royal family appeals to two mediums of a children interest: real experience and their imagination.

For the Christian, the nuclear family is the primary location of discipleship. The purpose of this book is to help accomplish just that by portraying real-life examples of teaching moments where the truth of scripture can be applied in a very practical way. Parents will find themselves set up to address and recall the lessons in this story for their children’s edification.

‘A Princess Problem with Envy’ will be an invaluable resource to parents as a discipleship tool. This book will help reveal biblical truth, facilitate discussion, and apply good moral virtues that will be key in the early development of their children.”
