From Ice Queen to Princess
A Study of the Book of Galatians
Women are often told they are God's princesses, but many don't know how to become one. It's one thing to believe you are a Princess, a Daughter of the King; it's another thing to live like it.
We have a vague idea of what Princesses look like, but we have no idea how to become one. Instead of being Princesses, we are stuck living and thinking like Ice Queens and Orphans, women the culture tells us we ought to be.
Most women find themselves in two extremes that both focus on self. Ice Queens are in control and strive for perfection at the cost of relationship. They emphasize outward performance and often seem cold and unfeeling. Orphans belong to no one and have no place to belong. They don't believe they are lovable and they look for love in all the wrong places, longing for the approval of others.
This book is a frank and authentic discussion of how a modern Ice Queen transforms into a Princess way of life by finding her identity in the Father as His Daughter. The Ice Queen, Orphan and Princess ways of thinking are found the book of Galatians in Saul (pre-conversion Paul), Peter and Paul.
The book includes a biblical study of the context and doctrine of the book of Galatians as well as personal stories of how God took the author from being an Ice Queen and an Orphan to believing she was His Princess.
