Sometimes on social media it’s easy to get weighed down by tragic news headlines, negative comments and attitudes from other people, or even just the monotony of hearing the same voices over and over again.
Here’s a list of 20 Christian women who are filling social media with encouragement, hope, and important perspectives on issues in the world. Their voices will likely lift your eyes to what really matters, make you think more biblically, and gently remind you that your perspective isn’t the only one.
And yes, there are many more I could add to this list and would love to hear your input as well! I could go on and on, but for the purposes of this article, I limited myself to just twenty.
I’ll start by sharing links for you to find and follow four women I’ve had the privilege of meeting in person. For the remaining sixteen on the list, visit this article I wrote for iBelieve.com.
Hopefully you’ll recognize some of them from our weekly Five Minute Friday link-ups and also meet some new friends along the way!
