I am a self-confessed blog addict.
In addition to my reading of actual books every day, I also do a fair bit of electronic reading, usually browsing my favorite blogs. Over the years, I have collected a handful of favorites who I love to follow, and I’m excited to share them with you!
Here, in no particular order, are some of my favorite bloggers:
Edie Wadsworth at Life in Grace – There are just not enough words to describe the delight that is Edie. She is the epitome of southern charm & hospitality, a voracious reader and classic literature nut, and perhaps my biggest inspiration of how to homeschool your kids and teach yourself at the same time. She and her family lost their home to a devastating fire several years ago, and I have counted it a privilege to watch, via her blog, as they have rebuilt their home and their lives to the tune of God’s unfailing grace and mercy. I just love Edie. And yes, I talk about her as though she is a close personal friend, even though I’ve never met her – although I did come THIS CLOSE during the She Speaks conference this summer (my one, single disappointment of the whole trip, but what a keen one!).
Ruth Simons at GraceLaced – Ruth is one of my favorite follows on Instagram, and her blog is equally delightful. She and her husband have six young boys, and she runs an Etsy shop out of her house. Her artwork is beautiful, but her heart for Jesus is even more so.
Bonnie Gray at Faith Barista – I’m a relatively new follower of Bonnie, but thus far, her quiet and contemplative blog has deeply blessed me. Enjoy some white space as she serves up spiritual espresso shots of encouragement.
Paige Knudsen at Simple Thoughts – I’ve followed Paige for several years now, and I love so many things about her: her photography, the way she loves on her family for all the world to see, her gorgeous white-toned house, and her delightful southern charm.
Alissa Wilkinson – Alissa Wilkinson is Christianity Today‘s chief film critic and also assistant professor of English and humanities at The King’s College in New York City. I’ve only followed her for a couple months now, but her piercing insight into modern pop culture has provoked so much thought on my part, and I look forward to her reviews and other writing.
Tune in tomorrow for part 2! What are some of your favorite blogs?
