The King's Daughter magazine


It is March and my eleven-year-old daughter just asked if The King's Daughter will be coming soon.

I hope so. The King's Daughter is a small magazine published for young women, but I think I enjoy it as much as my daughter. It contains a variety of stories, poems, and articles with pretty pen-and-ink sketches. Though the magazine is small and simple, it always contains encouragement on living life for the King.

I asked The King's Daughter's editor, Sheila Petre, to share a little history of the magazine.

The King's Daughter was established in 2007 under the title The Girl's Budget. It was begun as a school-girl effort with the inspiration of Angela Zehr of New York. As the magazine grew, Angela was no longer able to tend it. After several interim editors in 2011 and 2012, we (Mr. and Mrs. Michael Petre) took over in summer 2013. We have been inspired to watch God's blessing on the work: The King's Daughter as grown from a 28-page magazine for seventy subscribers in June 2013 into a forty-page magazine which was mailed to seven hundred seventy households in December 2015. We hope to continue increasing both magazine thickness and subscriber base in the years to come, Lord willing. (Help us spread the word!) 
We are dependent on writers and readers from across the conservative Anabaptist community--Amish, German Baptist, Mennonite, and more --to supply us with stories, articles, poems, and discussions of interest to young women wishing to grow in the King's likeness.

Details: Published four times a year. Rates are $10 for one year; $19 for two years; $26 for three years. (Foreign subscribers, add $3 per year; payable in US funds.) Back issues #15 through #25 available for $3 each. Make checks payable to Sheila Petre and mail to The King's Daughter P.O. Box 127, Mercerburg, PA 17236

I've been thinking of sharing about several periodicals that are written by and for the Amish and Mennonite community. So look for more posts about other magazines in the future. I am not receiving payment to advertise for these magazines, but these magazines have published my articles so I do wish them to find more readers.

  1. This sounds like a wonderful magazine! Do you think it would be good for a grandma to gain ideas for granddaughters? I have 3 that,sadly, their mother has back slidden. My son is still on track..so we pray hopefully. I have a new baby girl from my daughter..I am sure she would love this,even though she has 3 boys as well! I welcome anything that encourages the kids of today..life has gotten so complicated and God is left out. It is heartbreaking. Thank you for all that you do through your blog..it really does reach many.

    1. I should have stated that the magazine is geared to girls in their teens and early twenties. I too am always looking for reading material that will encourage my children in the ways of truth. There is so many false ideas out there. Gina

  2. Thank you for sharing; it is hard to find worthwhile reading and this would make a good birthday suggestion when Grandmas ask what to get! We also enjoy "The King's Blooming Rose" magazine; it is similarly encouraging. - Suz

  3. Looking forward to more magazine reviews. When I was young my mother received a magazine called "Keepers at Home". I am not sure if it is still in publication, but I would be interested in magazines like that. : )

    1. Keepers at Home (if it is the same one you are referring to) is still in print. I'll share about it in a later post.

  4. I found one of these magazines at the Homeschool store. I was so happy to find encouragement just for girls. I am looking forward to more suggestions from your community and "cousin" communities.Thanks so much for all you do to encourage us all in the Lord.

    1. I don't. But I'll keep my eyes open for something. My boys (and girls) love Nature Friend magazine. You can look up their website. A great full-color God honoring nature magazine.
