A Princess Like Me
Welcome to A Princess Like Me! I am very excited that you were led to this post. Through this blog, I pray that you will take these seeds that I am sowing to grow in order to bare fruit (John 12:24). This blog is simply the context of my life as a parent and my relationship with God.
So who am I? I am a child of God, a queen, a wife, a mother, a daughter, and a sister. I was born and raised in the wonderful state of Indiana (Go Colts!) where I attended the great Purdue University (Boiler Up!). Right out of school I began working as a Quality Engineer where I had the opportunity to travel all over the world. Years later I met my super husband and moved to Houston, Texas where we currently reside and have two beautiful daughters.
The idea for this brand began when my oldest daughter was two years old. She had fallen in love with the Disney movie Frozen, as I am sure most of your children did as well. She loved the idea of twirling around in a dress and swinging her pretend long and straight hair. I didn’t want to burst my daughter’s bubble and tell her that she will never have long blonde hair. Besides, how do you tell that to a two-year-old? Instead, I thought, “Why not find a character that looks like my daughter - one that she could relate to more?” So, off I went searching... Unfortunately, to my surprise, there were very few options. Disappointed, I told my husband about my dilemma and how it would be cool if we could create one for her. My husband’s response was, “Why not?” I thought about it and told myself that I couldn’t do it (not to mention, I had never wanted to be an entrepreneur).
Meanwhile, a few weeks went by and all I could do was think about what if there were a princess that looked like my daughter. Little did I know, God was working on me. In fact, He was working on my husband, too. One day my husband came to me very excited, exclaiming that he knew exactly what each princess would look like and what we would call the brand. I knew then, that God had called me to bring this idea into fruition. A Princess Like Me is about encouraging girls to find their inner princess that God has called them to be. All of God’s girls are princesses because He is our Father, the King of kings. We want little girls to know that a princess comes in all shapes and sizes. A Princess Like Me brings reality to little girls’ imaginations of being princesses. Our mission is to empower and encourage young girls to be who God created them to be through positive imagery. We empower girls and give them fashion without the frills. If you get our message, you can hopefully use it and apply it in every practical way.
How are you encouraging your princess?
