Top 12 Influencers You Need to be Following

Top 12 Christian Influencers You Need to be Following

Writing has always been a passion of mine. But so have people and God. Over the last six years, my blog has transformed into a platform in which I share my writing through everyday analogies and experiences with a different perspective.

I enjoy sharing the love of Jesus in ways that are relatable and relevant so that those who don’t know God yet can still get a glimpse of Him. The three things I pray my content does is to encourage, inspire and bless those it reaches.

But here’s the thing: I’m not the only one who has this passion. I have grown to know so many beautiful and inspiring people online through blogging, and if encouraging content is something you’re into – then here are my top 12 Christian influencers that you NEED to be following.

1. Shelby Esau

Blog: popanddot.com/
Instagram: @pop_dot

Shelby is the grace-driven, Jesus-follower behind Pop-Dot. I have never met her in person, but her love for God and people is so genuine. The heart of her page is all about pursuing our unique, God-given purpose and deepening our trust in the only One who never disappoints.

The daily posts are usually inspired by what God is showing both her and her community! Sometimes that’s life-giving relationships, sometimes it’s Jesus’ unending grace and other times, it’s the struggle to put one foot in front of the other.

It’s real and it’s raw. Seasons change and so do we, but the goal is to rehearse, remember and remind one another that our faithful God never will!

2. Tiffany Nicole

Instagram: @lavendervines

Tiffany is the Jesus-loving, free spirit behind the blog Lavender Vines. This Christian blog is centered around sharing the unfiltered truth of what it is like to follow God. From the amazing times of breakthrough and rejoicing in God’s love, to the struggles of unanswered prayers and questions, and the times we feel far from God.

Her passion for God is inspiring and her goal is to guide, encourage, and inspire you and your walk with God. Make sure you follow her along!

3. maddie kitchen

Blog: maddieejoy.com/
Instagram: @maddiee_joy

Maddie Joy is a world changer. Her heart behind her blog and the reason for writing and speaking serves a lot of different purposes. However, it all comes back to knowing Jesus and making Him known.

Due to experiencing the reality that comparison is the thief of joy first-hand, Maddie Joy’s primary goal is to encourage others to walk boldly and confidently in who God has called them to be.

She is also passionate about the power of vulnerability and sharing the “real life stuff” behind the pretty, put-together smiles we so often slap on. Maddie recognises and appreciates that this isn’t always the reality (even as Christians), but God is so faithful to meet us there and work through those hardships.

She desires to expose fear for what it is: a liar and a thief of dreams, as it held her captive for many years – and champion those who follow her personal experiences as they live out the unique call set before them! Her mission: to change the world, together!
