Are you living like a princess or a pauper? Discover the Biblical truth of your identity and start living as Christ intended —as a daughter of a KING! This is a quick read that quite literally changed my life and continues to change me each time I re-read and dive deeper into scripture. As a woman, NOW is the time to discover who you are to Jesus and begin teaching your daughters (and sisters and friends) about their supernatural royalty in Christ.
