Blogs You Might Love

The internet is full of blogs. Have you noticed that? It used to be that if you had a blog, everyone read your stuff. But today, there are so many to choose from it’s hard to find the right one for you.

Recently, I’ve found a few that I enjoy, and a few I feel provide something a little different, so I added them to my blog list. Today, I want to highlight them.

Though I read a lot of blogs about writing, this is my MINISTRY blog, so I will not be highlighting the writing ones. If you’re looking for writing information, go to my Writers/Readers blog at InfiniteCharacters.com.

So here are some of my favorites:

Cross and Cutlass—This is fiction author MaryLu Tyndall’s blog. MaryLu writes swashbuckling stories, and has recently decided to complete her Christian Pirate (that’s right, I said Christian Pirate) series. Intrigued? You’ll have to check them out to see. This blog is a bit of a mix of things. She sometimes features good fiction/non-fiction books, tells us about her research or highlights something important from the Bible that is relevant to the day. I love her expression of faith, mostly because she seems to have a deep understanding of the necessary balance of Truth and Grace.

A Girl Like Me—This blog was started by the wives of two of the members of the Christian Rock Band, Tenth Avenue North—Heather Owen and Kelly Donehey. What I love about this blog is the HEART for young women who are struggling in life and in faith. It provides love, acceptance, AND a firm foundation for those who have questions or may have strayed and need a way back home.

SammyA.—This blog is a bit lighter than the one above, though it serves much of the same purpose—helping those who may not understand the message of the Bible and need a non-threatening means of understanding it.

Sacred Outfitters—I just found this one recently while searching for information on preparing Christians for college. Jeff Baxter, the host of this blog, has written about that very topic. What I like about this blog is that it gives firm, in-depth information for those who are ready to dive deeper into the foundations of their faith and want to be able to share it with others.

Everyone’s Story—This is my friend, Elaine Stock’s, blog. She highlights a number of Christian authors who share inspiring stories of God working in their lives.

For other great blogs, check out my sidebar under “Check it out.” I hope you find something that will inspire you.
