One of the questions I get emailed the most is, “What are your favorite Christian mom blogs to read?”
I will confess that I haven’t always had an answer right away because I typically find blog articles via Pinterest–which means I click over to read the article and then I don’t usually do much browsing around on the site.
But after doing a little research while writing this post, I found that clicking around is usually the way to go.
I found so much good stuff out there! So much so, that I am certain this is only the first of many lists like this to come.
I just had to look around!
As you’re reading this list, and clicking over to these sites, do not stop at the first article that you get to–click around on the site.
I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at all of the wisdom that is freely given from these wonderful Christian mom bloggers.
Just a note–I did need some way to organize this list, so I separated the blogs into 5 different categories. That doesn’t mean that they are only in that one single category. In fact, many of them can fall into all five.
5 Categories of Christian Mom Bloggers:
- Encouragement for the Heart of the Christian Mom
- Spiritual Growth & Development for Christian Moms
- Inspiration for New Believers
- Parenting from a Christian Perspective
- Bible Studies for Christian Moms
