Hello! My name is Katya, and I’m the founder of To All You Princesses (TAYP).

TAYP is a blog for you. It’s for all the girls and women who are searching for answers, learning about their walk with Christ, and who need to hear stories of imperfect women in need of a beautiful Savior and King. It’s for every girl who wanted to be a princess, a superhero, someone who was special, and never believed they were. This is a place of honesty, of grace, and of lessons learned with God.

Welcome to our home.

Our History

I first created TAYP in the fall of 2013. I was currently battling an auto-immune disease, which kept me in bed most days. I felt defeated by this disease. My dream was to be a missionary, to tell people about Jesus, rescuing girls from human trafficking but I couldn’t. Not from my bed. What good was I to God’s Great Commission if I barely had the strength to walk a block down the street?

Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.
Psalm 43:5

I found my physical strength to be lacking, but spiritually, I was becoming closer and closer to God. I didn’t blame Him for what was going on. I asked why, I didn’t understand, but even though I had no answers, I found strength in His presence and His understanding. He knew what I was going through physically, and my internal heartbreak because my body couldn’t do what my heart desired.

He saw me and was with me.

One night, I had a dream. I dreamt I was writing everything God was teaching me of His faithfulness, of His wonder, and sharing it with girls around the world. I woke up and was so amazed by the brilliance of God. I wasn’t a writer, and that scared me, but the message was clear. Start a blog. Through much prayer and encouragement from my family and friends, I created the website and called it To All You Princesses.

The Present

It’s been some years now since the day, and now I have a testimony to share. The Lord healed my body in the summer of 2015, and I’ve been able to go on mission trips, preaching in some places, and telling people about Jesus. Right now, I am living as a full-time missionary in Brazil, waiting on God, seeking His purpose daily. What a beautiful gift the Lord has given to this undeserving girl! I feel blessed to know I am His princesses and honored to be a pencil in His hands.

I may not know you, but before you go, I want you to know that you are loved. Jesus knows you and is with you. He is waiting for you to take His hand. Will you trust Him?

I pray that you will.

To all you princesses, you are one-of-a-kind, and God loves you. These words are for you.

With all my love,
Katya

So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10

    Just want you to know… There are still princes out there looking for princesses… Guys who WANT a pure and Christlike girl. My son is one. My message to girls-don’t settle for a guy who may take you down a bad road. Let God lead you to a true prince!

    • Hey Bethany! You are so right and I love your message. I am encouraged to know God has set-aside these wonderful princes who will cherish us and love us as our Father. It is tempting to compromise and think princes don’t exist but then I wonder, maybe there are some guys who think the same thing about princesses–that we don’t exist. But we do! We are not obsolete and neither are princes who have surrendered their life to God. I hope your son finds his princess and that their love would be an example to many others of the reward the Lord has for those who wait on Him. Be blessed! -Katya

      Ashley, thank you so much for your sweet words. I can’t begin to express how encouraging they were to me. If you don’t mind, I would like to say a little prayer for you… I pray that during this next year you would soar high above the waves of life, above the torrent, above the river, and find yourself solid as a rock. Secure on the foundation of God, and Christ that is within you. Finding peace and rest in Him. Amen.

      Ashely, you are so loved!

      Have a beautiful day,
      Katya
