ID021 – Princess with a purpose — Part 1

Dear Girls,

We have some feedback about hairstyles!

Thanks to Heather Sheen for recommending the Ladies Against Feminism website. There are two articles on that site you might want to check out. One is “Help! What Do I Do With My Hair?” and the other is “Hairstyles for Older Women.” The links for these articles are below. If you have any trouble with the links then just go to and use the search feature.

Here are a couple of photos of a hairstyle a hairdresser-in-training did on my hair:



The hairdresser did a side part with my fringe and tucked the ends behind my ears. Then she twisted sections of my hair into cornrows and used bobby pins to secure it. Then to give the hair at the back of my head a little height she tied the hair at the end of each cornrow into a loose knot and pinned that to my head. My hair just fell loose from there. I had just washed my hair that morning so it was very silky and slippery for the hairdresser to work with so she had to put some product in my hair (mousse or hairspray) in order to make my hair more manageable so that she could work with it easier. I quite liked this style and got a number of complements on it.

If anybody else has photos of hairstyle and instructions feel free to send them in!

Also, welcome to those just joining us. Have a look at the website at If you want to read any of the previous newsletters, they can be accessed at

The next newsletter is attached as a pdf file id021.pdf and the text from the newsletter follows this note below.

Dear Girls,

Princess with a purpose — Part 1

Mrs Lisa Hollinger and her daughter Seanna Hollinger organised a High Tea in San Antonio, Texas, USA while I was there in August 2006. They invited me to speak on how we young ladies are princesses with a purpose and to conduct a mini Titus 2 bootcamp. My two speeches will be serialized over the next few Issacharian Daughters Newsletters. At the High Tea the mothers and daughters who came were invited to dress like queens and princesses. Mrs Hollinger arranged for Seanna and I to give all the girls tiaras as they arrived. There are photos splashed through the next few newsletters of the lovely high tea.

Princess with a Purpose

I’m going to cover these things during our time together: the example of Princess Elizabeth Windsor, our purpose as daughters, an example of how Dad personalised the purposed we have as daughters specifically for my life, the battle which is waging around us, how we can answer people who don’t understand our purpose, pioneering, seeing ourselves as being Titus 2 women and preparing for this role and the longing of younger girls to be befriended by older girls.

Why should we talk about these things?

There are lots of good reasons!

We are just rediscovering what the purpose for daughters is. The world today doesn’t shed much light on this. So it is good to talk about it and encourage one another in this purpose so that we can be single-minded in our devotion to obeying God in this area of our lives

Taking part in the battle is an exhausting and sometimes discouraging thing. So it is good to refocus, get our vision in order, regroup and sustain ourselves for the continuing skirmishes.

Women have forgotten about the command for older women to teach younger women. Just ask your mothers. Probably most of them did not have older women in their lives instructing them. The older women teaching younger women mentoring structure was organized beautifully by the Lord. It is essential for us to grab hold of this and run with it for it will help us to make strong our side in the battle.


To stir you up to consider what influence your life will have in the lives of younger girls around you.

Story about Princess Elizabeth Windsor

New Zealand is part of the commonwealth. That means that Queen Elizabeth II is our queen. She became Queen when she was 25 years old. Prior to that she was a princess: Princess Elizabeth Windsor.

Her father was King George VI, a second son who never expected to be the king. His older brother, King Edward VIII, abdicated the throne in order to marry a divorced American woman. As the second son, George had never been prepared for the role of King and all the responsibilities and protocol which come with it. So when he became the king he felt like he’d been thrown in the ocean without being taught how to swim. It was very hard for him to become king when he wasn’t prepared so he made sure that his daughters would be prepared if they were ever to become Queens of England. He didn’t leave anything to chance. He engaged private tutors. He taught them how to talk, how to walk, how to conduct themselves at public functions, what to say in various situation, how to represent the crown, what their responsibilities would be. He made sure they knew constitutional law and history. Their instruction was aimed towards preparing them for the throne. In time it was necessary for Elizabeth, the eldest sister to become the Queen. Because of her father’s training she has done a wonderful job. She has really honoured her father by her conduct.

When she was 12 she confided to her Royal Horseriding Instructor that had she not been born to be Queen, she would, “like to be a lady living in the country with lots of horses and dogs.”

Regardless of this wish, she has embraced her role as Queen and really sets a great example of royalty for us all to admire. She never has a hair out of place. She never says the wrong thing or gives a bad impression. She is always presented just right and behaves just right. Unfortunately she did not groom her own children and so there is little to admire in the two generations following her. And while we don’t want to admire her politics there is much to admire in her public deportment and demeanor.

Queen Elizabeth II was a princess with a purpose: a purpose set by her father and ordained by her heavenly Father.

To be continued…

For the Greater Glory of God through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,

I have sent this email to girls who have embraced a vision of victorious daughterhood as well as those who may be thinking about doing so (and even to some girls who may just like some encouragement regarding different areas of home life). Some of the girls are in the USA. Most are in New Zealand. You are welcome to forward this email on to others so long as you do so in its entirety. If you do not want to receive these emails please just send a return email to me stating that fact. If you know of other girls who would be encouraged by receiving these emails, feel free to forward the email to them or send me their email address.
