A Life of Faith

A life of Faith dolls, which are growing in popularity, provide role models that help girls imagine and experience a lifestyle of faith.  This line of dolls features five main fictional characters:  Elsie, Millie, Violet, Laylie, and the newest addition, Kathleen. They are ordinary girls with extraordinary faith encountering inspiring adventures that make them intriguing heroines.  Similar to the American Girl Dolls, A Life of Faith dolls emerge from different periods of American history and accompany books that chronicle their experiences and, in this case, testify to their devotion to Jesus.  This line is designed to help mentor girls in their life of faith.  These dolls are 18-3/4 inches tall made of an exceptional quality vinyl.  Most of the clothing is interchangeable with other popular 18 inch dolls.  The dolls have all rotationally-molded vinyl; the head, arms, legs, and torso are ball jointed, so the dolls can sit, stand, and be posed in many positions.  The dolls have hands that can be positioned to pray, and arms that can be raised in praise, and they also can bow their heads in prayer.  These dolls are sculpted by an award winning artist.  The clothing designs are based on historical research.  They are more detailed and use more fabric and trim than most other brands of 18 inch doll clothing.    Each doll has a full wardrobe that was created to portray her lifestyle.  We are exceptionally pleased to offer this new line of dolls. 

We are so very sad that Life of Faith and Faith and Friends have gone out of business!  We are constantly updating our inventory availability, but it is almost a full time job to keep it updated as the items are becoming more difficult to find and selling very quickly.

Elsie Dinsmore
A Life of Faith
 

When we first meet Elsie she is eight years old and growing up in the mid-1840's on a very grand plantation called "Roselands," with its huge mansion, spectacular gardens, large stables, and lush orchards.  Elsie is a sweet, lovely Southern belle with soft hazel eyes and beautiful curly brown hair.  She is an heiress who will inherit millions of dollars when she turns 18.

Unfortunately, Elsie is very, very lonely.  That's because she has never known the love of a parent.  Her mother died right after she was born and she has never met her father.  She lives with relatives who do not welcome her presence in their home.  Elsie is a 18 3/4 inch fully-jointed beautiful doll, she can sit, stand, put her hands together in prayer, and be posed in many positions. Elsie also comes with her miniature Bible.  The Elsie you receive will be wearing this newer dress, we have sold out of the original.
