DALLAS, April 16 /Christian Newswire/ -- While working as the coordinator of an American Girl style show in Fort Worth, Pam Davis was stunned when news broke that the popular book and doll series had aligned itself with organizations that supported a pro-left agenda that included homosexuality and abortion. As a Christian mother, this information caused her to consider the lasting imprint that "playtime" can really leave on an impressionable little girl. With the right character as a role model, God could use those sweet afternoon tea parties, hours of make-believe, and sleepovers to sow seeds of faith in tender hearts. This concept became the foundation for the Girls 'n Grace products, a line of dolls and books designed to fulfill Davis' dream of demonstrating to today's young girls what it means to be girls of grace.
"Today's little girls are growing up faster than ever, urged toward adolescence by the kids at school, television, movies, music, and even their toys--and each of these influences will shape who our daughters become," Davis says. "Now is the time for young girls to learn that when you live in the amazing grace of God, you don't have to give in to the kind of pressures that often lead to bad decisions."
The release of the first two Girls 'n Grace books, Sydney Clair's Season of Change and Mesi: A Girl 'n Grace in Africa (Authentic), will serve as the introduction to the product line. The series follows the lives of several fictional young female characters as all facets of their lives, from their friendships to their goals, are affected by their walks with Jesus. Spanning contemporary history as well as the globe, the characters--and the readers along with them--will learn to depend on God's grace, especially when their decisions to honor or trust Him are difficult ones. Of particular note are Davis' frank depictions of the protests and prejudices of the civil rights movement, an era that has traditionally been left relatively unexplored in Christian children's fiction
The Girls 'n Grace interactive website includes links for moms, mother/daughter Bible studies, games, a book club, and information about the line of dolls.
