The King's Daughter by Pansy
Dell, a committed Christian and temperance worker, was anguished when she moved back to her father’s village tavern. Challenged to do good, she found much opposition when she ran the household in a bright, clean way. She repeatedly had to go back to her heavenly Father for strength and direction.
“She had forgotten for a moment whose child she was. The King’s Daughter! She must not forget that. Truly she had a Father whom not only all the earth but all heaven adored.” An important verse is Isaiah 55:8—“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.”
