You read women’s blogs?

Yes, quite a few. And don’t worry, my wife knows, and she shares my enthusiasm too.

I’ve found many women have a unique gift to write about the Christian faith and life. They approach subjects and events differently to men; they see angles and dimensions we are blind too; and they remind us of the important roles and responsibilities that God has given to Christian women, stimulating prayer and appreciation for God’s work in them and through them.

I’m listing my Top 10 Women’s Blogs below, but I’d love to hear your recommendations too. Use the Comments to tip us off about other Christian women’s blogs that are worth a click.

Her.meneutics
The ladies blog on Christianity Today features a wide variety of top-quality writing on current issues, many of which have a special angle for women.

Woman of God Magazine
Trillia Newbell, a gifted young African American, pops up all over the blogosphere (The Gospel Coalition, Desiring God, etc), but you’ll find a lot of her writing at Woman of God Magazine as well. She’s a lively and transparent blogger, a writing star of the future I think.

The Upward Call
Kim Shay writes a short blog almost every day about books, theology, and life as a mature (hope she doesn’t mind that adjective!) mother of grown-up kids. Another transparent writer, I especially enjoy her book reviews and her ability to connect her faith with everyday life. (Update: Just noticed here’s a group blog that Kim’s also involved with: “The six of us are in what is often called the “afternoon,” of life, meaning we are all forty years and older”).

Domestic Kingdom
Gloria Furman and friends bring the Kingdom of God to the kitchen sink. Not sure if they’d put it that way, but they have a unique ability to draw deep and practical theology out of the usually routine and mundane events of mothering and wifing. I’m very much looking forward to Gloria’s first book.

Girls Gone Wise
Mary Kassian doesn’t blog as often as others, probably about 4-5 times a month, but she is always worth reading. Many hours of research and deep thought go into each article. If you are battling to raise wise girls in a wild world, you probably need Mary’s book and blog.

The Christian Pundit
Can I squeeze this one onto this list even though it’s only 50% female? I think so. The Christian Pundit is a relatively new blog run by husband and wife team, Bill and Rebecca Vandoodewaard (a colleague of mine at PRTS). Rebecca doesn’t miss her targets and you get Bill as a bonus!

En Route: Scribbles from along life’s way
As I worship in the same church as Daryl and Kara Dedert, maybe I’m a bit biased on this one. If you subscribe to Kara’s blog, you’ll have your eyes and heart opened to the pain of raising a child with disabilities; but you’ll also see God’s grace superabounding through it all. Raw, real, gritty, gracey.

Homeschool on the Croft
Ann gives me my daily dose of Scottish nostaligia! Lots of great photos and down-to-earth stories from the island I used to pastor in. Sometimes she overdoses on sheep and sunsets, but she’ll soon have you longing to visit Scotland. Oh, and she’s a real Americophile. So if any American wants a house swap…

The Life and Times of a Homeschooling Mom of Seven
Now all the way to South Africa for another upbeat, spritely homeschooling family blog that majors on arts, crafts, recipes, outings, books, etc. The title alone should be enough to intrigue you! Always lots of fascinating links to follow up, especially if you also follow the Twitter account.

Redeemed Reader
WORLD famous Janie Cheaney and Emily Whitten provide reliable reviews of kids books at different age levels. Their aim is to “shine a gospel light on children’s literature so that Christian parents, educators, and the children they nurture may read in a more redeemed and redeeming way.” And they do that extremely well.

So, ladies, who have I missed?

    Oh my, thank you for mentioning me in your blog today! I know of so many good blogs by women, I wouldn’t know where to begin! We are fortunate to have many solid blogging women out there!

  • http://www.karadedert.com Kara

    Honored, thank you! Looking forward to checking out the others, many are new to me. I had the opportunity to hear Gloria Furman in a writer’s workshop at Gospel Coalition and have enjoyed her blog since. I enjoy http://www.modobjectathome.com. The writer captures beauty and truth of faith and family in spectacular photos captioned with Bible verses. I am edified by her quiet reflections and faithful witness.

    Scripture Thoughts by Lynda Ochsner
    http://scripturethoughts.wordpress.com/

    Not particularily for women, but an excellent blog on the Bible and theology. Very informed. I always read her emails.

  • Deb

    I still like Girltalk with the Mahaney gals. It has been around long enough that we have watched their kiddos growing up…..
    http://www.girltalkhome.com/

    • Jamie

      YES – the archives are very organized on Girltalk, and I often find myself going to re-read their articles on parenting little ones, praying for your husband, pms-prep, hospitality, etc. Currently, they’ve been cranking out a series on women and their online habits, with Scripture-based priorities as a guide. It’s a really needed series for women.

  • Tracie Aldridge

    Practical Theology for Women – Wendy Horger Alsup

    And thanks for the list!

  • Deborah

    Sola Sisters is a good one to read, they have a neat testimony, saved out of new-age mysticism. Because of this prior history, they are sensitive to it and point it out when it creeps into the church.

  • http://charityjilldenmark.wordpress.com Charity Jill

    I love the Her.meneutics blog – I think it works hard to be a uniting voice in the Church. I am not familiar with any of these other blogs – I’m not sure that they are quite in my wheel-house – but it’s always good to see where other sisters in Christ are coming from. I will have to check some of these out.

I also wanted to recommend another fantastic online magazine which was created by a woman, family caregiver, shared care with siblings, became a CNA and turned caregiving consulting clinical pharmacist. Yes it is a healthcare based blog but women entrepreneurs needs a place to go for family health and wellness. At CareNovateMag.com, with a team of MDs, caregivers and nurses, they are all about “Script for Supportive Caregiving + Empowered Social Health + Improved Health Literacy.” We are part of Alltop, BlogHer, Healthworks Collective, Technorati blog directory and other reputable RSS.
