The Inner Princess Staff
Melanie Bogner is a Jill-of-all-trades wanna-be, who specializes in children’s ministry, graphics, event coordination and whatever else God places in her path. She has been working regularly with girls since 2003, and enjoys the giggles and girl-times she has with her sisters and friends. Most of all, Melanie loves to see girls follow the Lord with all of their hearts, catch a vision for the amazing plan God has for their lives, and see the JOY that comes from loving Jesus!
When she’s not working with Melanie and their company DuoParadigms, Aaress Lawless enjoys spending time with some of her favorite people—girls! Her love for working with young ladies deepened when she spent two years as a counselor at a ministry for troubled girls in the Oklahoma countryside. While there, Aaress learned valuable life lessons like how to clean a fish while trying to keep her eyes and nose closed, how to survive literal cabin fever when snowed in, and that God loves every girl more than you can imagine! It is her passion in life to share God’s love and encourage others that you are never ordinary when following an extraordinary Savior.
Sara Quinnett, the oldest of six children, is a woman who is seeking Christ’s best in her life. She likes finding new ways to serve the Lord in ministries and the people around her! As a photographer, Sara loves to enjoy life and capture her Savior’s wondrous glory in His creations! “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8
Jessica Williams is a young woman who has a passion for studying the Bible and teaching God’s Word to children and young women. The Lord has given her many opportunities to teach as she has served alongside her family in an inner-city ministry they established in 1995. She believes that God’s Word is powerful and can change the lives of those who choose to not only hear it, but to also obey what it says. Her favorite hymn is Trust and Obey for she believes that completely trusting God and walking in obedience to Him are the keys to living a life that brings honor and glory to God.
Reaching young women in crisis, evangelizing children, and discipling teen girls are three of Kristina Williams’ greatest passions. Serving “the least of these” in her family’s inner city ministry is where those passions were birthed. When she is not working in the ministry, Kristina enjoys history museums, road trips, and spending time with her four siblings. Her favorite Bible verse is Joshua 4:24 “That all the people of the earth might know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty: that ye might fear the LORD your God forever.” The desire of her heart is that all people will come to know and experience the saving power of the Lord; that He might be feared and glorified.
Hannah Hulin is blessed to live at home with her parents and seven of her 9 siblings. Hannah loves music and maintains a full studio of violin and piano students. She has a desire to encourage girls to love the Lord with all of their heart, soul and mind and to live in full surrender to Him. Hannah remembers all of the insecurities, questions and fears she had as a young girl and how her walk with God as well as the encouragement of godly older girls helped her through this season. It is her prayer that she can encourage the next generation of girls to live whole heatedly for the Lord regardless of where the culture is!
