Hey there, my name is Katya and I’m the founder of To All You Princesses (TAYP).

I first started writing for TAYP in the fall of 2013. I was currently battling an auto-immune disease, which kept me in bed most days, and I felt completely useless. My dream has always been to be a missionary, ministering in foreign lands, telling people about Jesus and so being stuck in bed all day made me feel like I had no purpose for God.

Growing up with a single mom, I went through a lot of crazy stuff, but the Lord taught me so much through it. Even battling that disease brought me closer to Him. As I entered my twenties, I began to have this passion to share what I’ve learned. I wanted to see a generation of girls embrace their God-given identity and walk with confidence, knowing no matter what life threw at them, they were known and loved.

One night, as I was lying in bed, the Lord gave me the most amazing idea to start a blog. I wasn’t what I would consider a “writer”, but I knew this would be a way for me to fulfill both of my passions. From my little bed, in my little corner of the world, I would write messages to girls around the globe about Jesus and the things He has taught me. I would call it, “To All You Princesses”.

It’s been some years now since the day, and now I have a testimony to share. The Lord healed my body 100% in the summer of 2015, and I’ve been able to go on mission trips, ministering in foreign lands, telling people about Jesus. 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 loves you and calls you His Beloved. He seeks you more than you seek Him. He is waiting for you.

Dearest One, thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy this blog.

Have a beautiful day,
Katya

    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
