About the Program

Every girl is a precious daughter of God - a princess of the King! Whether she is an athlete, a diva, a tomboy, a bookworm, or anything in between, the Modern Day Princess (MDP) program is designed to help teens discover the unfathomable love God has for them. MDP will help each participant grow closer to God and uncover his unique plan and purpose for her life.

Meet Bev

My name is Beverly DeRise and I married Steve, my college sweetheart, back in 1996. We have been blessed with four children, and it was when our oldest was turning 13 that I began to look for a way to officially acknowledge her passage into young adulthood.

My search ended when I found the Modern Day Princess curriculum written by Pam Farrell and Doreen Hannah, published by Focus on the Family. It was exactly what I was looking for and I held my first group in our home with my daughter and a group of her friends from school. It was a great success and proved to be very meaningful to the girls and to their families.

Since that positive experience, it has become my desire to see this program made available to teen girls everywhere. As an experienced teacher and public speaker, I offer my leadership to local MDP groups as well as training and support to other leaders who would like to run their own groups.
