Top 10 Blogs for Christian Women

Top 10 Blogs for Christian Women

After blogging for almost 10 years, I (Renee Fisher) thought it was time to make a top 10 list of the top 10 blogs for Christian women!

Every year there are a few websites that list the top Christian blogs, but they’re usually based on how much traffic you receive. That may be what attracts you to read a blog, but that is NOT what attracts me.

For me, it goes much deeper than that.

+ Are they women of integrity?
+ Does she actually care about you–the reader?
+ Does she stay away from gossiping or slandering other Christian blogs to get more hits?
+ Is she accessible enough on social media for you to feel like you’re a part of her journey & online ministry?
+ Is she connected with her local church?

These are all questions I prefer to ask instead of HOW MANY STATS DOES HER WEBSITE HAVE?

After checking out their sites, and have questions on how to start your own blog–check out ALL my writing tips here.

Not only have I had the pleasure of connecting with them, but I have collaborated with them at some point. Feel free to say hi, I’m sure she won’t bite!

She may not always be updating her blog, but that’s because she’s one busy lady. She writes about two books a year, and travels full time with her husband Bill as they speak at churches and ministries across the country. She is my mentor and I love her.

  1. I am so honored, Renee. Thank you for sharing my blog, UpgradeWithDawn.com, with others. I want to speak truth into this generation and encourage women of all ages to consider how they can reflect the glory of God as they demonstrate the love and power of Christ. That is certainly something you have been doing, Sister-Girlfriend!

  2. Thanks so much for putting me in this list, Renee!! I love that you picked people you feel have integrity, etc.,–not just high stats. I love your blog, too, and I’m glad we can all connect as fellow women on this journey towards knowing God better.

  3. Wow, I only have ever heard of one blog (annie downs) on you entire list!!! I best get started!! 🙂

  4. Thank you for your post! It was very helpful 🙂 Rochelle Frazier (author of He Gave Me Pearls) is incredible. Check her out! She’s extremely honest and transparent and very inspirational.

    rochellefrazier.com

        1. Thank you Renee! I am so honored! I’m traveling the next few weeks a good bit, and it’s easiest for me to write when I’m not juggling my babies schedules and needs so I’ll be sure to read your guidelines and respond then! Blessings to you!

  5. I hope to be added to your list someday, Renee! Congrats on your new book on Forgiveness. What.an.important.topic!

  6. Hi! I was wondering what advice you might want to share in devotional blogging. I’m relatively new to blogging and trying my best to make my blog a priority because I feel like God wants me to do something with it, but I’m still floundering in many ways. I’ve been looking around online to try to learn from what others before me have done which is how I found your list. I’m going to try to look through these different sites and learn from them! But if you have any additional thoughts or advice— my blog is thejoyfultruth.wordpress.com if you want to have a look! If you don’t have the time that’s fine! Thank you!

    1. Joy! I love that you choose a bluchic theme for your blog. I also choose that theme for someone else’s blog that I helped design. Good job on setting things up professionally. Everything looks clean and ready to go. Just keep blogging and reaching out to fellow bloggers. It’s ALWAYS a work in process :-). You can do it!

  7. Hi. I have been blogging for two years now, mostly Bible studies, but also some devotions. This year God led me to compile some of them into a book. It came out last week and is called Miracle of Faith. Please go to my blog and give me your insight from so many more years of service. The site is tcmhome.blogspot.com.
    Thanks, Gail Davis

    1. Hi Gail, I would recommend choosing a different background and make sure your default font is the same. I see some posts have blue font and black font and some are different sizes. Those are just a few recommendations to make things more professional. Also, you should have your picture and a short bio on the upper right hand side where all your widgets go. Some of your widgets on the right hand side were confusing and really hard to read. Maybe delete them and clean things up? Good luck and keep blogging!

      1. Hi Renee. I have adjusted things on my blog site as you suggested. I find that still the blog site will randomly choose to change my font size or color within a document. Any suggestions about that? Also, I am looking into starting a personal web page for the Bible studies I write. Can you tell me anything I need to consider before doing that? Thank you for your previous suggestions.

      1. Renee, I would like to share on your site. I have read the requirements and understand them. At the bottom of this sections you say, “If you are selected to guest post please feel free to use our button to the left!” I could not find the button to which you were referring. Can you please help me with that? Thank you.

  8. Thanks for this list of great blogs!! My blog is unique in that it is meant mostly for women ( or men) whose parents have divorced when they were adults. Please visit if you or someone you know is dealing with the aftermath of their parents divorce , in adult years. http://acodtimeforserenity.blogspot.com

  9. I would add Lina AbuJamra to the list. She blogs every day, M-F, and in addition to an excellent blog and podcast, her two books published last year are SO good!

  10. I am so thankful for this information you have listed. I’m unsure if you have time but I have started blogging as well and my target audience is Christians. I have posted the link and would enjoy your thoughts and feedback about this new world of blogging. I want to spread the love of Jesus and must seek guidance from others who have been doing this. Thank you so much!!!

  11. This list is awesome. Even if you search “top ten christian blogs for women”, your blog pops up because of all the intention that this single post has gotten. I am very inspired by this blog. I usually read Jesus Calling Devotional every morning, but this blog gives me a whole new perspective.

  12. Thank you for taking the time to put together this list! I’ve been wanting to read and meet other Christian women bloggers. My next comment is, how does one get on this list? 😀 Please stop by and visit my blog: http://www.ashestobeauty.net/ I’ve had it for a while, but only about a year ago I’ve felt God calling me to use my blog as a platform and to be intentional about it. So that’s what I’ve been doing in the last several months. Thanks again and btw, I like this site! I’ll be back to read more articles.

  13. The Love of God is really contagious! that His Love will compels us to do his will. Please support us in out movement called YOU ARE LOVED MOVEMENT or #youarelovedmovt. You can help us by spreading this photo into your timeline in Facebook or twitter or instagram by putting this caption: #youarelovedmovt
    Let love explode and bring revival in our land. Godbless you more and more power to you. 😀

  14. I have been so encouraged and blessed by these blogs. Thank you for creating this list and for sharing! God is glorified and lifted high and it is such a beautiful way to share His love with the world! I would be honored if you would consider my blog at http://4everydayblessings.blogspot.com/ and thrilled if you feel it would be appropriate to include. Prayers for God’s blessing on your ministry!

  15. Ladies can I ask for your prayers please. i work at a place in riverside ca. Providence Recovery Center is a rehab for women suffering from addiction. Here we teach these ladies that it is the lord alone who can release you from the bondage of a sinful life and free you from suffering. We have several ladies struggling with stepping out completely in faith. Can i ask that you would pray for them, the center, and the staff? Also if there is anyone in the riverside ca area that wants to share the word of god we love having women of faith come in and speak. thanks so much!

  16. Heather Lindsey is an awesome blogger as well! She updates pretty regularly. She has encouraged me greatly!

  17. THE BAPTISM OF JOHN VERSUS CHRISTIAN BAPTISM BY STEVE FINNELL
    POINT: Those who reject the Scriptures concerning the purpose of Christian baptism, readily accepts the Biblical account as to the purpose of water baptism performed by John the Baptist.

    Christian Baptism: Men are told to believe in Jesus Christ, repent, and be baptized in water for the forgiveness of their sins and they will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

    Mark 16:16 He who has believed and who has been baptized shall be saved..
    Acts 2:38…”Repent, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins;and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

    In Christian baptism men are clothed with Christ.
    Galatians 3:27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

    John’s Baptism: Men are told to repent and be baptized in water for the forgiveness of their sins and to believe in Jesus who was to come. (The Holy Spirit had yet been given).

    Luke 3:3 And he came into all the district around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the remission of sins;
    Acts 19:4 Paul said, “John baptized with a baptism of repentance, telling the people to believe in Him who was coming after him, that is, in Jesus.”

    Christian baptism follows believing in Jesus, and repentance, (repentance means to make the commitment to turn away from sin and turn toward God).

    The baptism of John followed repentance, (resolving to sin no more).

    Luke 7:30 But the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected God’s purpose for themselves, not having been baptized by John.

    If the Pharisees and lawyers rejected God’s purpose by failing to be baptized by John the Baptist; what will be the consequences for those who reject the baptism commanded by Jesus?

    Did you ever notice that the proponents of the “faith only” doctrine no not say that “for” in Luke 3:3 means “because of”?

    John’s baptism was not because their sin were already forgiven. Christian baptism preached on the Day of Pentecost was not because their sins were already forgiven. (Acts 2:38)

    Luke 3:7 So he began saying to the crowds who were going to be baptized by him, “You brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come.

    John’s baptism in water was essential to spare them of the wrath to come.

    Christian baptism in water is essential to spare us all, of the wrath to come.(Mark 16:16…baptized shall be saved….)

    The baptism of John became obsolete on the Day of Pentecost.

    CHRISTIAN BAPTISM IS AVAILABLE UNTIL JESUS RETURNS.

  20. Hello!
    My name is Karsyn Robb. I’m 20 years old and living in Nashville, TN. I’m contacting you because I just began dipping my toes into the Christian music world. I recently wrote a song called “You’ve Got a Plan” that I really believe in. I wrote it at a time when I was pretty much at the end of my rope, something I think a lot of people can relate to, and for the first time in a long time put the weight of everything I was dealing with in God’s hands. I know this song can inspire and touch a lot of people if given a chance to. Below is the link to the acoustic video I posted on Facebook and it would be absolutely incredible if you could post something on your blog about it. If not, that’s totally cool but I would still love to hear your personal feedback on the song! Thank you so much! 🙂 Have a good one!

  22. Hi Renee,
    I am a Divorce Recovery and Life Transition coach with Big Blue Couch Coaching in Bismarck, ND. I recently read your article, “10 Tips for Moving Forward after Tough Transitions”. That article touched on many areas that we work with helping women get through tough times in their lives. I would like to know if I could have your permission to use that article with my clients? I would of course have your name and Devotional Deva included in the article. Also if you have the time, please look at our website and let me know what you think about BBCC. We are a very new company and are some of the first life coaches in this area.
    Thank you,
    Joette

  23. Thanks for your post. After 17 yrs of being a stay-at-home mom I’ve recently published 2 yabooks. It’s hard to believe people could really benefit from things I write, but while seeking God’s will for my next step starting a blog keeps poking it’s crazy head. Maybe….

  24. In celebration of his resurrection share the message of his love & sacrifice upon the cross by sharing this message and called ” Christ’s passion for us” to all you can. Remind the world of his sacrifice & teachings through the sharing of thus post called

    (Christ’s passions for us)

    He suffered on the cross for our salvation. His love for us is eternal and unconditional. His forgiveness for our sins is never ending.
    So we shall follow his example with each other. Do this in remembrance of his divine grace, his sacrifice through his suffering on the cross and his divine love for us all.
    •Love one another as he loves us. •Forgive one another as he forgave us.
    •Help one another as he helped us. •Guide one another as he guided us.
    •Teach one another as he taught us.
    •Care for one another as he cared for us.
    •Shelter one another as he sheltered us.
    •Give to one another as he gave to us.
    •Feed one another as he fed us. •Clothe one another as he clothed us.
    •Comfort one another as he comforted us
    •Have Mercy on one another as he has mercy on us..
    For he is the way and the light. Through him all is possible. Without him I’m nothing but dust in the wind, but through him I’m reborn.

    Share this in honor of the Lord Jesus Christ who gave everything for us all, for his love is eternal, so shall our love for each other be a reflection of that love. Do this in honor of the lord thy God.

  25. Thank you so much for the great list. I hope to one day be apart having worte a book “The Premature Proverbs 31 Woman”. My goal is to help single women who are tired of dead-end relationships, married women realize where they went wrong in marriage, and single men detect characteristics of a PP31 Woman.

  26. Hello and thanks for this amazing list of Christian women blogs. I am looking for bloggers to feature my print shop ministry so if anyone is interested please contact me via my website. I offer children Christian tees and my goal is to make Jesus’ name known to our little witnesses at a young age 🙂 God bless and hope to hear from some of you soon!
