Raising a Modern-Day Princess
Inspiring Purpose, Value, and Strength in Your Daughter
In the same tradition as Raising a Modern-Day Knight, this book is designed to equip parents to cultivate strong relationships with their adolescents. Raising a Modern-Day Princess stresses the importance of creating a rite of passage for teen girls – a defining moment in which girls can be blessed by their parents and other godly adults in their lives.
It’s a call for their families and communities to celebrate and support them as they enter womanhood. This book offers practical help in raising a generation of women to see themselves as God sees them-as daughters of the King.

Doreen Hanna was born and raised in East Los Angeles, California. Her life immediately had its challenges. She was rejected by her father as a young girl, yet chose to forgive and overcome that heartache. Doreen faced the challenge of living more than 20 years with the presence of alcoholism in her home. By God’s grace, saw the results of standing firm resulting in a loved one coming to sobriety. She managed an “all-girl” family full of high emotional drama! All she has faced called her to forgive, stand firm and graciously understand the emotional needs of girls and women.
In 2000 Doreen founded Treasured Celebrations, an umbrella organization for all Modern Day Princess resources for teen girls and women. Her first signature program began with the Becoming a Modern Day Princess rite-of-passage curriculum. This 10-week journey provides insights for teenage girls to know what it means to live filled with purpose, value and strength.
