Top 20 Blogs for Women


I’m so excited to annouce the Top 20 Blogs for Women! There was a GREAT response from women everywhere who nominated their own personal favorites and I can’t tell you how encouraged I have been by the diversity of blogs out there to minister to women in different arenas and seasons of life! I wish i could list just about every one of them, but I limited it to 20…so I need to stick with that for now. Many are listed as “FAVS” because they offer resources that help women in this journey called life, so I hope you’ll check them out and see what they have to offer. It may be just what you need!

Now I have a job for each of you. If you find your blog on my page and you would like to include a short little ditty about your blog under the link, please email your info to me at eternallyHis@mail.com. If you know someone who has a link here, please contact them and tell them how they can tell us a little more about their blogs my emailing the information for their sites.

By the way…my list is in no particular order. Just random blogness that I hope will encourage you!

My passion is to press through all the craziness that surrounds us everyday, to plug into God and then turn around and share with my son all that God is and why we live to honor Him. I want to share this passion with you too! I struggle everyday with this because of all the pressures and demands of everyday life and because of the simple fact that I am human and therefore, not perfect (umm, GULP! Did I just write that for the whole world to see?!!?). I do not have all the answers but I know the One who does! I am daily learning that I have to rely on Him to be the woman and mom He wants me to be in order to bring Him glory. In the pages of my blog, I simply desire to share with you what I am learning about God and what He desires of us as mommies and to equip you to be able to impact your children for His glory.

As much I love to nurture my “nest,” I’ve gone around the globe to learn this world is not my home. My earthly home is hared by my hubby and 2 children, and we’ve enjoyed the adventure of pastoral & missions ministry together for 20 yrs of marriage. I’m a coffee drinking, herb growing, history loving, bread baking kind of gal who resists ironing but loves getting caught up in God’s Word. Showing how real life displays God truth & how His truth changes real life is my joy & the heart of my blog. Every Monday I focus on the miracle & mystery of two becoming one in “Marriage Mondays.” I can’t help loving to alliterate, & my kids would confess I also love to rhyme. It is my joy to use words to share God’s truth & extend His invitation to a worn out, confused, & anxious world … “Come, have a peace.”
