Foundation Truth, Number 5 (Spring/Summer 2001) | Timeless Truths Publications


About Dear Princess

Dear Princess is a section of the publication, Foundation Truth. My purpose in publishing is to encourage those who are serious in living dedicated lives to the Lord. I aim to address girls from ages 15 to 25, but many others may enjoy it also.

I, Abigail Spinks, am laboring as editress, although Skye Erickson is no longer co-worker in this role. I am trusting God to accomplish His purpose in this work and greatly appreciate your prayers.

On Writing and Contributions

“The LORD hath done great things for us, whereof we are glad.”* (Psalm 126:3) Has the Lord done anything for you? We would be so encouraged to hear about it! Whether you have found any helpful tips or hints in learning a skill, or the Lord has been teaching you a lesson, given you help or answered prayer, please feel free to share. In this way you can encourage, challenge, and strengthen others in the right, for we are called to “consider one another to provoke [stir up, spur] unto love and good works.”* (Hebrews 10:24)

If you are feeling like you have nothing to share, please search your heart and find why. As daughters of the King, our hearts should be full of His praises and lips ready to tell of His goodness. If that is not the case, we should find out what ails us. Don’t be cheated out of the blessing of sharing what the Lord has done for you or is teaching you! Do not let the devil tell you it is boastful or prideful to write and share what God has taught you—you are only glorifying the Teacher, which we are commanded to do.

We would greatly appreciate hearing from mothers, grandmothers, older sisters—we have much to learn from you. Please do write and share what experience in the Narrow Way has taught you (Titus 2:3-5).

For those of you who have written; thank you all for your letters! They are a great source of encouragement to us. For as “iron sharpeth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.”* (Proverbs 27:17) Your comments, concerns and suggestions are welcome, so please write in if you have any. Keep in mind that we consider your letters for printing; therefore please state in your letter if you wish it not to be printed or if you prefer to remain anonymous, etc.

Dropping a Note

Dear Princess is back! So many of you have asked if we would publish again the magazine, Dear Princess, for girls, as before. After much prayer, I have felt that I could change the name back, but should still be a section of Foundation Truth. Mailing is expensive and we cannot justify the cost of a separate magazine. However, I’d like to have as much of the old Dear Princess as I can—including adding a couple of columns we had dropped—“Meet a Princess” and “The Fruit of Her Hands.” Although “Meet a Princess” will, Lord-willing, be resumed next issue, I have nothing on hand for the “Fruit of Her Hands” column…. I was wondering if you might have fall recipes you could share for the next issue. I’d like to focus on quick breads, rolls, muffins and scones—and I’m sure you have some wonderful recipes. Do send any tips or quotes you might have to go with your recipe! We’ll be looking forward to the mail!

Also, we have another question for you: Are you reading the continuing story, Princess in Calico? We have received very little feedback and as we have such limited space we want to print only that which encourages and blesses. I love the book, but I’d like to get your opinion… anyway, until you write, I am using the space in other ways….

May God bless each one of you dear sisters. Don’t forget to drop me a note, please…. If you are blessed and have been inspired, given an insight by the Lord—we can’t know until you tell us! And the encouragement of reading a good testimony is beyond words. It is really uplifting—thank you to everyone who has helped in this way.

In the Service of the Master,
