Christian blogs are as rich and varied as the faith itself. You will find scripture, theology, philosophy, guidance, inspiration, and so much more. The Christian landscape is peppered with hundreds of different sects, cults, and denominations. Some legit, others not so much. The one constant is a belief in a triune Godhead, with Christ as the only begotten Son who died on the cross and rose again, three days later.
Christians believe that God is one and three at the same time. Even here, different denominations hold varying beliefs. And when it comes to doctrines and eschatologies the different groups can appear miles apart. All this makes for fascinating research. And bucket-loads of content!
The content of Christian blogs will appeal to everyone who has an open mind and is willing to broaden their understanding of this, often persecuted, religion and the people who follow it. But more often than not it will appeal more to people who actively follow a Christian lifestyle.
What Type of Christian Blogs are Popular?
Some Christian blogs have content that appeals only to niche audiences. Others give practical information on everything from homeschooling and organic gardening to prayer and meditation. Christians will delight in the sheer volume of free resources available. And for Bible enthusiasts, these blogs are truly manna from heaven!
Not only can you download software and apps that assist with Bible studies and offer free (and paid) courses, you can also find Christian-based social events, conferences, camping, and adventure tours, and blogs that promote Christian -owned and run businesses (see also: how to make money blogging.) Christian personal finance blogs, Christian lifestyle blogs, Christian food blogs, you name it there’s a niche for it within the Christian blogging genre.
Considering that there are 2.5 billion Christians spread across the world, it’s not surprising that over 100,000 Christian Blogs exist! Christians make up roughly 30% of the world’s population. And out of the 2.5 billion Affiliated Christians, roughly 50% are Catholic and 20% are Protestant. The remaining 30% are a mix of Orthodox, Independents, Evangelicals, Unaffiliated, and Pentecostal. This statistic comes from the Centre for the Study of Global Christianity (CSGC).
So you can only imagine how my mind boggled when I began my search for the Best Christian Blogs of 2020! I love compiling my Best Blog lists because I end up discovering hundreds of unique blogs. And bloggers! This one was no different.
In this blogging genre, you’ll find blogs belonging to Church websites and ministries. You’ll also find blogs that serve to teach and spread the knowledge of the Bible. Then you get blogs that feature Christian news stories. These stories are often controversial, current, and relevant to what’s happening in the different Christian communities scattered across America. But obviously, it’s not only American Christians who create Christian blogs. So I’ve tried to find an interesting cross-section of Christian bloggers from around the world.
Who Are the Christian Bloggers?
Some Christian bloggers combine their business and their faith. This is possibly because they want their target audience to be Christian-based. But the most helpful Christian blogs are those that can offer guidance to people who are searching for truth, comfort, and hope. Christian blogs that stick to biblical truths are the most beneficial. With so many charlatans, false prophets, and scam artists lurking online trying to exploit the naivete of well-intentioned Christians, I have left out blogs that don’t adhere to biblical truths.
Christian blogs are often personal blogs, started by people who want to share their testimonies and bring Glory to God in all that they do. Christian bloggers range from moms and dads (see: best mom blogs) to preachers and missionaries. You get Christian survival bloggers, Christian food bloggers, and even Christian lifestyle bloggers. Many Christian bloggers write as guests for other blogs. It’s one of the many blogging genres that has a thriving online community, creating a space where news is, more often than not, good!
Often, brilliant blogs get overlooked purely because they don’t rank on the first page of Google. I make it my mission to find blogs with value. They must look amazing, be relatively ad-free, and consist of well-written, well-researched content. Sometimes I come across real treasures but I don’t get to feature them because they no longer publish new posts. Today, I’m showcasing 25 Christian Blogs that I have fallen in love with. And I hope you will too!
Let’s jump right in!
25 Top Blogs in the Christian Category
There are too many Christian blogging niches to name them all. So I’ve rounded up a few blogs from each of the following niches. (If you think I’ve missed any important Christian blogs out, drop me a comment down below.) I love hearing from you guys. All quoted scripture that appears in this article is taken from the King James Bible.
There just isn’t enough space to describe all the wonderful blogs in this genre. I’ve found many inspiring & popular blogs from the following Christian blogging niches:
- Christian Blogs of Ministries and Churches
- Blogs that are in some way unique
- Christian Blogs for Women
- Personal Finance Blogs
- Lifestyle Blogs
- Blogs that focus on teaching the Bible
- News Blogs
- Travel Blogs
And this is far from a complete list. Below are 25 of my favorite Christian blogs from a small selection of Christian blog niches.
Christian Blogs belonging to Bible Ministries and Bible Churches
The ministers, pastors, and preachers that are featured in this section are the cream of the crop. They deliver sermons that are biblically accurate, doctrinally sound, and very inspirational. In a world that wants us to compromise on everything, these men remain steadfast in their mission to stay true to the Word, without compromise. Their sermons enrich, enlighten, and provide a good dose of spiritual nourishment for hungry souls.
The men preaching here are all strong advocates of the gospel. In many modern churches, teaching the Word is almost completely absent from regular worship. Instead, the emphasis is on the emotional input and output of attendees. And as any discerning Christian understands, there will come many false prophets out to deceive and exploit Christians. (Matthew 24v4: “And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”)
1. Grace To You (gty.org)
Unleashing God’s Truth, One Verse at a Time. Since 1969
This is the ministry of John MacArthur. He started preaching in 1969, at the Grace Community Church, in Sun Valley, California. What started as a simple way to bring the sermons to members of the congregation that were too sick to attend, became a global outreach ministry. They now broadcast radio sermons, webcasts, podcasts (learn: how to start a podcast), audio sermons, and a live streaming Grace to You TV channel. MacArthur is also a prolific writer and his many books are available from the Grace To You website. His 3,300 plus sermons are available to download, for free.
It started with reel-to-reel recordings and the ministry grew with technology (see my: best tech blogs). Today this independent, self-funded, nonprofit company traverses geographical and technological borders, spreading God’s Word.
About John MacArthur
John MacArthur is an exceptional expository preacher. Expository preaching is a style that unpacks bible books, verse-by-verse. It also pays attention to the grammatical and historical importance of the scriptures. Sticking to biblical principles and standards allows for an enriched, deeper understanding of the spiritual knowledge found in the Bible.
The Grace to You blog is just one of the site’s free resources. Often, the month’s posts follow a set theme. For example, September featured God’s wrath, June highlighted His Holiness, and May, His Providence.
Here are some recent blog post titles:
- The Good News About God’s Wrath.
- The Inconvenient Truth About God.
- Created To Receive Blessing.
2. Cross Examined (crossexamined.org)
“Christian apologetics seeks to build bridges to unbelievers by presenting reasons and evidence that Christianity is true, rational, and worthy of belief.”
Started in 2006, by Frank Turek, this evangelical, inter-denominational ministry focuses on Christian apologetics. Cross Examined is a ministry that ministers to the youth, especially college students. Due to intellectual skepticism, 3 out of 4 Christian youths leave the church during college.
This blog will be fascinating and intellectually stimulating for anyone interested in apologetics as a discipline, as well as debating and holding conversations that deal with the social and cultural issues that seem to attack the worth and legitimacy of the bible.
The website is the platform for Cross Examined to share audio, video, TV, and upcoming events. They also offer online courses and have loads of resources.

The blog is of high quality, with well-written posts from academics, fellow Christian apologists, and guest writers.
The blog categories are as follows:
- Does Truth exist?
- Does God exist?
- Is the New Testament true?
- Are miracles possible?
- Theology and Christian Apologetics.
- Legislating Morality, Culture, and Politics.
You’ll find blog posts with titles like:
- Modern Pelagianism and Its Failure to Recognize the Power of God.
- Defrocking the Priests of Scientism.
- Systems Engineering in Nature.
- Is it Unbiblical To Argue for God?
For anyone interested in Apologetics, you may enjoy the sermons and speeches given by Voddie Baucham, find him on YouTube or go to his site (voddiebaucham.org). His stuff is controversial and relevant. He is currently Dean of Theology at the African Christian University of Zambia. Before this, he was a pastor at the Grace Family Baptist Church, in Texas.
3. Ligonier Ministries (ligonier.org/blog)
“to proclaim, teach, and defend the holiness of God in all its fullness to as many people as possible.”
This is the ministry of R.C. Sproul. This is an excellent resource on all levels. Teachers and preachers will find a range of resources. Sproul’s daily devotions and blog posts deliver spiritual messages of encouragement. And food for the soul.
Much focus is placed on the training up of new ministers and missionaries. Very dedicated, informative blog. You can find the blog button in the top right corner of the website.
4. One Passion Ministries (onepassionministries.org/blog)
For God. For His Glory. Forever
This is the ministry of Dr. Steve Lawson. Recently officially retired, he continues to give talks and sermons as a guest speaker because he is so much in demand. Besides being an excellent preacher he is also a great teacher.
He teaches Expository Preaching. This is a very important job. New ministers need to be schooled in expository preaching so that they don’t get lost by interpreting and teaching doctrines and theology based on their imaginations, or what is popular in society.
His blog is OnePassion blog, you can find it under the category Ministry. Here are the three most recent blog titles:
- Working and Warring (Psalm 46:8)
- Present and Protecting (Psalm 46:7)
- Threatened and Defended (Psalm 46:6)
5. Truth For Life (truthforlife.org)
This is the ministry of Alistair Begg. Like the men featured above, he also preaches in a local church and live streams. His sermons are available for free download, and like the blogs above, you can find sermons by topic or scripture, date, or series.
His blog has the following categories:
- Ministry Updates
- Monthly Resources
- Weekly Wallpaper
- Weekly Sermons
- Hymns and Worship
- Letters from Alistair Begg
- Listener Stories
- Begg’s blog
- Study Guides
Christian News Blogs
There’s no shortage of Christain news blogs and platforms. Although some of these sites do have separate blogs, there is no need as the content is supplied in the form of newsworthy topics from a Christian perspective. There is a thin line between Christain News blogs and Christian Lifestyle blogs because often the content is varied. Perhaps the niche should be Christain Online/Digital Magazine Blogs.
Here are 5 of the best Christian News Blogs.
6. Christian Headlines (christianheadlines.com)
This site has seven categories that you can click onto.
When you arrive, you’ll see the latest news articles and trending topics. But if you click on “Topics,” you get to choose anything from A-Z. For example, I clicked on “#wildfires.” Immediately all the news articles involving wildfires came up.
Click on Blog and you will get 1-3 news articles every day. At the time of writing the days headlines were:
- Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Dies at 87
- Evangelicals for Social Action Drop “Evangelicals” from Name
The Slideshow category has more general articles, so it could pass as a type of blog, with a lot of images. The last post here was September 2019. It’s titled “10 Commandments of Facebook: Things Christians Should Never Do On Facebook. It has 10 slides accompanied by text.
Under Columnists and Contributors, you’ll find current content from various contributors. For example, on September 18, 2020, an article from BreakPoint was published, titled “Benjamin Watson, Tulsi Gabbard, and Frank Wolf on the Slaughter of Christians in Nigeria. Another article from Greg Laurie, dated September 17, 2020, is titled “What the Bible says about Self-Defense and Justice.
Each author’s content appears next to their name so it’s easy to navigate and easy to find specific items.
You’ll find a lot of news that won’t appear on mainstream news sites.
7. Christianity Today (christianitytoday.com)
A Global Media Ministry. Digital and Print magazine. Latest Religious News and News about Christianity
At the very top, on the left are the headings; Who are we, What we do, and Newsletters. On the homepage, there are four categories; sections, our latest, the magazine.
If you look under sections you’ll find “the meat”. This is a digital version of a traditional magazine/newspaper. It has Top Stories, Current Issues, and a Blog Forum.
The blog forum is a bonus because you’ll find the links to five other Christian news blogs that you can access without leaving the sites. Each one is a complete stand-alone blog.
The blogs are:
- The Exchange. This blog belongs to Ed Setzer. The content is theology, missiology, church planting, and church revitalization.
- Pivot. This blog belongs to Karl Vaters and discusses innovative leadership from a small church perspective.
- Jesus Creed. Scot McKnight owns this blog. The content is based on theology and current events. It’s a favorite among Christian Today readers as it’s known for seamless, engaging content.
- Just Marinating is Derwin L. Gray. He’s a pastor, author, and former NFL linebacker. The blog covers leadership, discipleship, church planting, evangelism, and the gospel of grace.
- Thin Places is Amy Julia Becker’s blog. She writes on the intersection of faith, family, and disability. This is a direct quote from her blog, “This blog is about discovering and remembering thin places, places where heaven and earth touch, where God seems more readily present, more easily accessed. It is meant to uncover ideas, relationships, points of connection, and moments of deep beauty that draw us towards one another and towards the Holy One.”
8. Christian Today (christiantoday.com)
United Kingdom’s largest Christian news provider
This site has a section titled “Comments”. It’s where you’ll find the editor’s comments, as well as comments (blog posts) from other contributors. If you go to the Home page you’ll find the news articles. The other categories are news, US, world, church, culture, lifestyle, comment, and video.
Here are 4 headlines found on the home page and 4 headlines found in the comments section. You can see how the one is straight journalism and the other is more editorial.

10. China Christian Daily (chinachristiandaily.com)
Here, in America, we take our freedom of speech, and the right to choose one’s religion, for granted. But there are over 50 countries in the world where you can get persecuted for practicing Christianity. China is one of those countries.
Despite this, China Christian Daily continues to report on Christian news in China. In post-pandemic China regulations, regarding online church services, have become stricter. Many online gatherings have been blocked by the government.
Then there is the problem of cults. The online services have opened a door for cults, like Almighty God and Shincheonji, to infiltrate and pull in unsuspecting Christians looking for online church services.
China Christian Daily covers world news, culture, Chinese Christian news, church and ministry, and more. The “devotional” section could double as the blog. Here you’ll find opinion pieces, devotions, and food for thought, with a bit of reporting thrown in for good measure.
Unique Christian Blogs
The following five blogs represent a mere drop in the ocean. But each one brings with it messages of encouragement, sound biblical perspectives, and an opportunity to gain more insight and understanding into the Word of God.
11. Sermon Audio (sermonaudio.com)
Sermon Audio is the most amazing resource for Protestant Christians. It is a broadcasting platform that boasts 35,396 speakers, 1,951,073 sermons, and 2.6 million downloads. If you love listening to a cross-section of conservative Christian preaching, this is heaven on earth.
The site is geared at getting the Word out there. It promotes sermons, speakers, conferences, bible events, webcasts, and Christian blogs. It is a central hub from which Christians can explore many avenues. They have a Newsroom that covers topics on Tech, News, Religion, Society, and Choice. You will find more Christian-based news forecasts, updates, and reports.
Listen to sermons that are sorted by topic, bible verse, speaker, or date. Scroll through the list of pastors, preachers, and ministers that contribute regularly. Discover the blogs of many of the speakers and their sites! This is the go-to site for what is possibly the largest and most trusted collection (library) of audio sermons. Live Streaming, podcasts, and webcasts are also available. And all the sermons are downloadable, for free.
It is the most valuable online Christian resource. They promote Christian books and get revenue through advertising anything relevant to services, events, conferences, book promotions, missions, and more. It is also a great Church finder. Almost all the speakers are affiliated with one or more churches. And many of these speakers also host radio shows, webcasts, or podcasts.
But best of all, for blog lovers, this is a hidden goldmine. Sermon Audio showcases recent blog posts from a large number of their broadcasters Almost every church featured has a blog! So basically, Sermon Audio gives you access to an A-Z of Christian blogs right here. You don’t need to leave the site. There must be well over It’s a fantastic site, on all levels, with a very easy-to-navigate interface.
12. Grace Gems (gracegems.org)
A Treasury of Ageless, Sovereign Grace, Daily Devotionals
This site is truly a treasure trove of forgotten gems. It is a wonderful way to go back and remember preachers, and writers from the past. When you subscribe you’ll receive a daily email made up of a bible verse and the devotional to go with it. You also get an audio option. These daily gems of truth, grace, love, and faith deliver simple yet profound statements of truth that can still get applied today.
There is such an abundance of resources at your fingertips. This is a definite one to bookmark. Especially if you are a puritan at heart!
13. Drawing On The Word (drawingontheword.com)
Faith, Creativity, and the Bible
This is an extremely original blog. Robert Sang started it to promote his Graphic Novel Bible. Not only is he artistic and creative, but he’s also an academic! He has a Bachelor’s degree in Theology and a master’s degree in Systematic Theology.
Drawing on the Word has multiple meanings. This is a direct quote from Robert, and it reveals what you will get from this amazing contribution to the Christian blogging niche.
“You’re exploring the Bible for the first time but have no idea where to begin. You want a road map to guide you.
You’ve been a Christian a while, but every time you commit to a Bible reading plan, you end up falling behind or getting stuck in a rut.
You’ve always been passionate about God’s word and would love to go deeper.
You love the Bible but are more of a visual learner.
You’re searching for new and creative ways to read and study scripture.
You’ve seen people Bible journaling but don’t know where to begin, or you’re not artistic.
You’re facing a challenge in your life. You’d like to draw on the word of God as a source of strength in times of hardship and struggle.”
Here are three post titles from Drawing on the Word’s blog:
- Which Book Of The Bible Should You Read First? 5 Recommended Places To Start Reading.
- What Did Jesus Mean When He Said, ”I Am The Door Of The Sheep”?
- 6 Tips To Avoid Burnout While Serving God.
14. Kristin Sterk (kirstinsterk.com)
Simple Grace-Filled Living
Kirstin’s blog is a personal one. She keeps readers updated on what’s going on in her family. She is married and has one daughter, Mazy. The blog is loaded with photos of Mazy and her adventures. But she also sets aside a part of the blog for quiet reflections. The reason she shares about family is because of an ordeal she went through. She shares her testimony with others to give All Glory to God.
She was told she couldn’ have kids so her husband and her arranged for a surrogate, also called a gestational carrier. Unfortunately, that didn’t work out. And then Boom! A miracle, she fell pregnant with Mazy.
Kirstin and her blog are the perfect examples of what a Christian Personal blog looks like. She is an author and a public speaker. She loves giving her testimony and encourages others to do the same.
Her blog covers family, faith, gestational carrier, grief, heart condition, and simple living.

15. The Peaceful Haven (thepeacefulhaven.com)
Janelle is married and has 6 kids! She invites readers to join her as she explores Christ-centered slow-living. This blog could also appear in the Christain lifestyle blog niche. But I placed it here because it doubles as an online magazine. Janelle sends a monthly issue out to all her subscribers. Each issue has a central theme. For example, there’s the “Autumn” issue, the “Homemaking” issue, and a “Christian Parenting” issue.
Her magazine is jam-packed with awesome articles, recipes, activities for kids, and gardening advice.
Janelle invites her readers to embrace the principles of Christian living. You can read all about them in the Manifesto section on her “About” page. The blog covers book reviews, essential oils, and recipes. But there is so much more on offer. If you want to read more of Janelle’s take on Faith, Family, Health, Home, and Food, The Peaceful Haven is the blog for you.

16. The Gospel Coalition (thegospelcoalition.org)
“Our goal is to glorify God by helping raise up a new generation of Christian pastors and leaders across the world—a generation with an undiluted, robust knowledge of the gospel, who understand the times and lead with faithfulness.”
Wow! The Gospel Coalition (TGC) has an enormous outreach. They receive 16 million visits per year. And that’s just from the coalitions outside the States! TGC is a network of blogs that deliver global resources on the historic gospel of the reformed tradition. Each coalition has content tailor-made for that country. From the home page, you can choose which edition you’d like to read. Pick from Australia, the US, The Netherlands, Spain, France, Italy, and more.
You’ll find the blogs under the heading “Editorial”. There are also sections titled articles, read your bible, essays, reviews, podcasts, and more. But here’s the catch, this isn’t only one blog it’s a collection of blogs! And you can access them all without leaving the site. The US edition features 7 blogs. Each author has a name for their blog and a selection of well-written articles on a wide range of issues relevant to Christians in these times. Definitely worth bookmarking.
I took a browse through the African coalition edition and the Australian one. I’m hooked. The sheer volume of articles at my fingertips blew me away! The African coalition differed in a few ways. They don’t have a selection of blogs like the American edition, instead, they have a compilation of excellent articles written by pastors, academics, and other qualified Christians. But they also have podcasts, in fact, most of the editions have podcasts as well as articles.
The blog from Africa covers the following topics:
- Arts & Culture
- Bible & Theology
- Christian Living
- Church Planting
- Current events
- Faith & Work
Contributors include Pastor Conrad Mbewe from Zambia, Derek Ntambi, Kevin Mirithi, and many more. Here are a few examples of recent blog posts from the Africa Edition.
- The Truth About Superstition by David Ntambi
- Celebrity Christian: Kanye West and the African “Man of God” by Blaque Nubon and Lindiwe Mlalazi
- Witchcraft In The Church by Blaque Nubon and Sanelisiwe Jobodwana
- If God Exists, Why Do We Live Like This: African Apologetics by Werner Hamukoto
- Faith and (no) Work by Roydon Frost.
And just to compare, and give you a taste, here are the Australian edition’s latest posts:
- Cardi B: What I Wish I Could Unsee
- The Beijing Declaration 25 Years On
- The Conversation On Banning and Enforcing Conversion
And here are samples from the Brazil edition, translated from Portuguese
- Did Paul Teach Prosperity Theology?
- You Will Be Odiados Of All
- Desalento and Light Amid The Rubble Of Beirut

Christian Blogs that Focus on Teaching the Bible
17. David Pawson (davidpawson.org)
I could have placed David Pawson in the Church and Ministry category but his teaching on the bible is so excellent I put him here. David passed away on 21 May 2020, at the age of 90! And he was still giving talks and sermons!
He is the author of the book called “Unlocking the Bible”. What is so fantastic about his teachings is that he gives you details that you would never find in the bible. He explains the chronological unfolding of events and puts the listener, or reader, in that time and place. You get such vivid imagery of where the bible stories took place. Suddenly passages that didn’t seem to make sense or have much relevance come alive and you are transported to that era!
His “Unlocking the Bible” series of talks can be found on YouTube. His site doesn’t have a blog but I added him because the site has a rich, immense Online Library that is freely available to anyone wanting to study the Bible through fresh eyes. David Pawson had a brilliant sense of humor, and it came through during his talks and sermons. He exuded a quiet joy always.
18. Teaching the Bible (teachingthebible.com or christcenteredmall.com)
Again, this is not a blog. But it’s a marvelous resource for anyone that teaches Sunday School or homeschools their children. It is jam-packed with brilliant methods of teaching God’s Word to children, teens, and even adults. Check it out for yourself.
It is also an online store that links to various merchandise. You can buy Christian art, Christian healthcare insurance, and Christian books.
Where The World Comes To Study the Bible
This is a bible study site that uses the NET Bible version. It does have the option to compare with other versions. There is a spiritual warfare going on and all these new versions, that came out after the King James Version, have been corrupted. Over 300 verses have been omitted from the newer versions in a bid to remove the divinity of Christ. For a list of the omitted verses check out (av1611.org/biblevs.html)
But getting back to blogs, bible.org has a blog called Heartprints. There are 6 regular contributors. The blog is further divided into:
- Engage, a blog for women
- Impact, a blog for men
- Bock – Darryl Bock’s posts
The authors are all educated and qualified in various areas of ministry and theology. Here are some of the most recent blog posts:
- A Theology of Sleep
- Hope Amid Hardship
- The Sin That So Cleverly Entangles Us
Christian Lifestyle Blogs and Christian Blogs for Women
Christian lifestyle blogs differ from mainstream lifestyle blogs. Instead of reading about decor, travel, fashion, and the latest health trends, you’ll find topics like daily devotions, prayer, relationships, and bible studies. That’s not to say they are devoid of anything resembling the material luxuries coveted by fans of lifestyle blogs.
Christian lifestyle blogs also feature travel tips, household hints, and parenting advice. Think of them as a nice mix of mom blogs and lifestyle blogs with a healthy dose of spiritual nourishment. I’m not sure why, but these blogs seem to be largely aimed at women. So I have combined the two niches.
20. Flawed and Faithful
To Know Jesus and Make Him Known
This is the ministry of a young woman, named Lily. Her blog is a passion project for Christ. Here are the most recent posts:
- Useful Scriptures To Use When Praying In All Situations.
- What Are The Benefits Of Marriage?

21. Sandra’s Ark
Sandra and Fred have been married for over 40 years! And are happy grandparents and parents. Sandra’s blog is a reflection of her life, much of which is dedicated to serving in her church and through her blog.
Her blog is well-laid out. Sandra has made it very easy to find the relevant blog post that you want to read. Under ‘Encouragement” you’ll find all her posts ..on encouragement. Coffee and Conversation is where you’ll find the lighter stuff. This is where Sandra shares her thoughts, humor, and occasional rants.
There is a travel section where she shares her travels and an “Organizing” section where you can find humorous and practical advice and tips on keeping a neat and tidy home.
The Bible Study and Devotionals are a mix of short posts and longer posts, all related to scriptures. You will also find book reviews, mainly on children’s books (being the doting granny that she is).
You will also find some great free resources. This is a lovely blog especially if you have children, teach Sunday school, or enjoy reading. Sandra’s personality comes through and you immediately feel at home.
22. Equipping Godly Women (equippinggodlywomen.com)
Equipping Godly Women is a Christian website FULL of the encouragement, advice, and resources you need to be ALL IN in faith and family!

23. The Praying Woman
Prayer and Devotional Blogs for Christian Women
Many real, and not always pleasant, topics are dealt with here, in a caring space. Prayer is the Christian woman’s secret weapon in the world and this blog makes prayer the focal point. Prayer is one of the most important aspects of Christian living. It cultivates a personal relationship with Jesus and brings strength to the weak and hope to the discouraged.
Blog titles include:
- 3 Steps To Move Beyond The Hurt Of Infidelity.

25. Belle Britta (bellebrita.com)
A Christian Feminist Lifestyle Blog
This is the blog of Brita Long. She is funny, quirky, smart, and knows her own mind. She enjoys sharing advice on relationships, dating, sex, and marriage. Her introduction to us goes like this; Christian feminist libertarian, making the world a better place one day at a time. Fueled by hot tea and mimosas.

Whether you regularly whip up Michelin-worthy meals at the drop of a hat or your cooking skills are best described as “fine, ” you can always benefit from the helpful little tricks of others. Here, 14 of our friends’, families’ and coworkers’ most-used cooking tips.
There’s a time and a place to whip out that complicated coq au vin recipe you’ve been dying to try. A dinner party isn’t that time. With a new recipe, you’ll likely be chained to the kitchen the whole time, plus, when you’re trying something for the first time, there’s always the possibility that it could go horribly wrong. When cooking for a group, we always err on the side of tried-and-true crowd-pleasers.
You do hours of prep work on an intricate dish, only to be totally disappointed once you taste the terminal product. Bummer. Instead of putting in all that effort only to be disappointed, taste while you cook. That way, you’ll realize sooner that the dish isn’t tasting how you’d like it to, and you can make all kinds of last-ditch efforts to save it. This doesn’t just work for bad-to-OK meals. Tasting midway through and realizing how perfect a dash of cayenne or a squirt of lemon juice would be can take a great dinner to legendary status.
Plating pasta means tossing some onto a plate and finishing it with a nice dollop of sauce right on the middle, right ? Wrong. Here’s how to take your carbs to the next level : On the stove there should be two pans, one with pasta and one with sauce. Cook the pasta to al dente and transfer it into the sauce. Then, add a little bit of pasta water ( literally just the starchy water the pasta has been cooking in ), which will help the sauce cling to the pasta while also keeping it the right consistency. Perfection.
In the pursuit of the perfect steak, you have to be OK with your kitchen getting a little smoky. That’s because, to get the mouthwatering sear we’re all after, the meat has to be dry and the pan should be pretty damn close to smoking hot. Trust us, it’s worth a few seconds of a blaring alarm.
Most foods are ruined by too much salt. Steak is different. When it comes to seasoning your meat ( before you cook it ), more is more. Use a generous amount of coarse Kosher salt—more than you think you need. Since most cuts of steak are pretty thick, even though you’re using a lot of salt, it’s still only covering the surface.
This one isn’t too complicated. Whether you’re making avocado toast, pizza, fried rice or a burger, the addition of a fried egg on top will not hurt your feelings. Trust us.
This one seems like a no-brainer, but we’ve definitely found ourselves in a situation where we assumed we knew all of the ingredients that went into chocolate chip cookies only to find out that we had about half the required amount of brown sugar. Ugh. to avoid a mid-cooking grocery-store trip, read the recipe from front to back—carefully—before you start.
Prepping grains in mass quantities is less about taste than convenience. Rice, quinoa and even oatmeal last about a week in the fridge after being cooked. When we’re prepping any one of those, we double up our measurements and store the leftovers, which are then impossibly easy to use up throughout the week. Too tired to make dinner ? Heat up some leftover rice from the fridge and toss an egg on top ( remember ? ). Couldn’t be simpler.
So you fried up a pound of bacon for an indulgent ( read : delicious ) brunch. Great, just make sure you don’t throw out the grease in the pan. Instead, save it in the refrigerator or freezer ( it technically lasts for up to a year, but should be used sooner than that to take full advantage of its flavor ). Then, anytime you’re cooking something you typically prepare in oil, try cooking it in the bacon grease instead. You’ll never want to eat Brussels sprouts the old way again.
You’ve probably heard that whenever a dish is lacking a little something-something, the best thing to do is toss in some salt. But, we have it on good authority that salt isn’t always the answer. When you’re tasting a dish at the end and you think it needs a little oomph, often it just needs a splash of acid ( like lemon juice ) to round out the flavor.
You know the difference between a paring knife and a fillet knife, but do you know how to take care of them ? Or, more importantly, how to use them ? A set of good knives can be the difference between a stressful cooking experience and a great one. First, practice your knife skills. Look up tutorials on YouTube and practice chopping, slicing and julienne-ing. It’s amazing what you can do with your cook time when your prep time is shortened with solid knife skills. Then, once you’ve got your skills down pat, learn how to take care of your set. No one ever achieved kitchen greatness with a dull chef’s knife.
The key to tender, flavorful barbecue and roasts ? Cooking it on a low temperature for a long time. The same doesn’t go for roasting veggies. For crispy, perfectly cooked butternut squash, Brussels sprouts and more, remember the magic number : 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Any lower, and you risk pulling a pan of blah carrots out of the oven. It might seem high, but to get the nice roasted flavor, you need high heat. And while we’re on the subject, stop crowding your veggies in the pan, which will also make them soggy.
You know how just about every cookie recipe suggests that you chill your dough in the refrigerator for at least a few hours, but oftentimes you don’t listen because you just want cookies now ? ! ( Same. ) Unfortunately, this step actually does make a difference. In addition to limiting how much the dough spreads while baking, chilling your dough intensifies the flavors and produces that perfect chewy, crispy texture we know and love.
It won’t do your breath any favors, but never ( ever ) scrimp on garlic. In fact, we typically double the amount a recipe calls for. Apologies to anyone who was planning on kissing us.
