A Warrior Princess: Esther’s Story

What is a Warrior Princess? She is a girl who stands up against darkness without losing her light. A woman who doesn’t care about her reputation but fiercely defends the unloved and weak. A daughter of the King who does not sacrifice her femineity for power.

Throughout history, many Warrior Princesses and queens have arisen. One of the most noticeable is Ester. Esther was a young orphan raised by her older cousin but dearly loved by him. Xerxes the Persian king who oppressed Ester’s people, the Israelites, had an issue with his wife. She defined him in front of his guests. That is something he could have. He kicked her out of the palace and out of the kingdom. Demoting her from riches to rags.

The Christmas Ceasefire

During World War I in 1914, a miraculous event occurred that still confounds individuals and historians to this day.

Spirits grew heavy as the young men instead spent Christmas surrounded by gunfire, dirt, and the smell of sulfur.

That is until something floated through the air from the German side of the trenches.
