The Bonfire: 1,001 Christian women bloggers you should know

This is not a list of the “top” Christian women bloggers, or the best, or the most popular. It’s just a list of those I’m aware of thus far.

Please let me know of any names I’m missing here and I’ll add them to the list and post the new, improved, updated and expanded Bonfire every little bit after collecting more names.

The name “Bonfire” here comes from Sarah Bessey:

So I am no longer standing beside your table, asking for a seat, working and serving and hoping to be noticed and then offered a seat or arguing for my right to a seat. I don’t care to sit here any more. I have no desire to be indoors, in your neat boxes. …

And someday, I’ll throw my arms around you when you break up that table to use it for kindling and toss it out the window to the outside. We’ll build a bonfire and we’ll dance around the old arguments together, laughing.

What Are Your Thoughts?leave a comment
  • AnonaMiss

    Quick OT, which I’m placing in this thread because it’s the newest: I’d be interested in hearing your thoughts on grace and driving in traffic. My commute is the part of my life in which I most often give and receive grace from my fellow man, and I’m just interested on your take on it as a wiser man than I with a religion that revolves around grace.

    Also is there any chance we can get a contact form up somewhere on the site? All my non-work emails are blocked at work and I would have preferred to request this in a place where it wouldn’t derail.

  • Cathy W

    I have to admit – seeing this list, seeing that it was, seriously, up to 1001 entries, knowing it grew out of someone’s claim that they couldn’t find one woman Christian blogger of note… suddenly there was something in my eye. 

    Thank you, Fred.

  • Andrea

    An addition: my friend Amanda, a Princeton theology PhD and mother of the two most eloquent and hilarious toddlers I know: Her most recent post involves her three-year-old looking for a bedtime story and bringing Amanda a Greek New Testament, the Book of Common Prayer, and the Wesleyan Church Discipline before settling on a Sesame Street book. She also did a great seven-part series on Women in Ministry earlier this year.

  • Courtney

    Hi! I’m a recent graduate and blog about various Christian ramblings, and am female. :) , Life Outside the Fold

  • Charles Céleste Hutchins

    You’ve made Mary Daly the poster image for this post, and she was certainly influential, but I think it’s problematic to make her emblematic of of women theologians.  She was Janice Raymond’s dissertation adviser. That dissertation was _The Transsexual Empire_, a hugely influential book that lead to a lot of hatred and exclusion against trans women in feminism.  Daly also made her own contribution to discussion about trans women, comparing them to white people in black face.  This kind of racially problematic appropriation of other people’s oppression was not a one-off. Andre Lorde wrote a letter to Daly about racism in her work. Daly never engaged the letter.

    Daly was very much a product of her time. Parts of her work are hugely flawed, but other parts remain valuable.  However, if you want to make this a list for all women, not just cis white women, she might not be the best icon to use.

    Further discussion of Daly:

  • Wow, thanks for including me, Fred!!

  • This is an incredible list.  That must’ve been a lot of work to compile all of the names.  Thanks for doing this!!

  • Seeing the list is encouraging & makes me want to click through & meet all my sisters bravely writing and influencing online.  Thanks for the inclusion in it.  It’s an honor.

  • Wow, 1001, this is great! Also very happy to see my blog on the list. ^_^

  • Lara

    One more for the list – Alyson Quinn, who works for Prison Fellowship, blogs about her life and faith at

  • Hey, does the foreshortening in that picture up there with the axehead creep out anyone else’s sense of spatial relations? Like, that axehead should not be able to face the camera that way given how it’s being held.

  • Episcopalifem

    Wow! What a list! Thank you for includingy me (Episcopalifem)

  • Hmm…my comment was up before and now it’s not.  Any idea why that might have happened?

    Anyway, I was saying that my blog, Will Bike for Change (or Pie!) qualifies if it’s just Christian women bloggers, not just those focusing on faith/religious matters.  It’s about bicycling and sustainable food, with a healthy dose of social justice issues thrown in.

  • Thanks for posting this. What a gift.

  • earthchick

    Wow, thanks for posting this, and for including me. :)

  • Sarah

    It’s awesome to be amongst the list.

  • Jane Schmoetzer

    Acutally, the list is far longer:  RevGalBlogPals includes several hundred bloggers, most of whom are Christian clergy. A few are on this list separately; most are not.  

  • Grandmere Mimi

    Wounded Bird is honored to be included in the list. Thanks.

  • Esoterica1693

    Red Shoes Funny Shirt : a young-ish Episcopal priest who is a college chaplain

  • Thank you including me on the list. Whoever couldn’t find Christian women bloggers obviously weren’t looking that hard.

  • Esoterica1693
    “One Cannot Have Too Large a Party”
    Episcopal priest –blend of a photo blog and sermons/reflections.

  • Thank you so much for including me in this marvelous company!

  • Blessed and honored to be on this list (More Meredith Gould).  Sometimes I feel like I’m a voice ranting out in the wilderness, but I guess most of us feel that way. 

  • Rachel Hackenberg

    Echoing Grace: I want to dive into reading the words of my sister bloggers! Thanks for such a resource and for including me ( on the list.

  • Elizabeth Evans

    Strangely, though I can’t find my blog (, I am now getting visitors from this post.  Thank you!  Perhaps I need new contact lenses.  

    What a great idea.  Hours (and hours) of good reading and inspiration from my sisters in faith down the road in the morning. Elizabeth

  • thanks for reading &  including me & for the lower caps, too, that made me smile.  may more and more fires be fanned into flame…

  • Tericarol21

    So excited to have all these new bloggy friends to read. Thank you for including me (Clever Title Here) and for posting this–so glad someone is responding to the ridiculousness of “no christian women bloggers.” I mean, seriously. 

  • Phil Ewing

    Thanks very much for including my blog  Blue Eyed Ennis. I’m honoured and humbled  to find myself in such good company.

  • This Jesus Freak is honored to be included!  Thank you to all the Christian women bloggers out there.  Your thoughts and reflections sometimes make me laugh, sometimes make me cry, sometimes challenge my but always feed my soul.

  • What a treasure trove of wisdom you’ve collected! Thank you! You’ll find my blog at

  • Thanks for the work that went into this post! What a great company of women. 

  • It’s an honor to be included in this list, and it’s encouraging to see so many sisters using their words to tell a better story! xo

  • Thank you for including me in this list! Blog on!

  • Wait, why are these women bloggers I should know?

    “This is not a list of the “top” Christian women bloggers, or the best, or the most popular. It’s just a list of those I’m aware of thus far.”So, I should know them because they are female? Does that mean I should know men bloggers because they are male?

  • This is exciting. It makes me wish I had hours to just click and read! 

  • Wait, why are these women bloggers I should know?

    You should know them because you should know that they exist at all.  Many male Christian bloggers were asking “Where are all of the women Christian bloggers?” and this is the answer to that question.  I don’t think Fred is saying we need to personally read each and every one of them, but just that this group is out there and writing.

  • Jen

    Jen Garrison Stuber, of The 52 Churches Project:

  • I wanted to add “to be honest” by Lyndsey Graves. It’s been one of my personal favorites. It’s here

  • crystal

    Thanks for the mention  :)

  • Shannon Savage-Howie

    I just got started on the blog train- but I’d love to be added! 
    Life…It’s kinda like that

  • Sarah Richardson

    Wow. Wow. Wow. I just found MYSELF on this list. How did that happen? I guess sometimes screaming does help, eh? I’m so honored and terrified. And excited to read through the rest of this list! Cheers!

  • Anne Fraley

    Humbled and honored to be among my sisters on this list. 

  • I exist! Ha.

  • Kind as you are to put the “Beaker Folk” on the list, I think you’ll find that the main “author” is an imaginary person… 

  • Mary Luti

    I’d like to offer, a new blog with sermons, midrash and marginal notes, not to mention the occasional doggerel

  • Thank you for this list! Although I’m in the RevGalBlogPals group that you already listed, I’d love to be listed separately when you update:

  • julie ball

    I’d like to add myself to the list if I may: – about how moving to Memphis, TN, has impacted my faith, about my ongoing journey to find my place in Christian ministry, and just ramblings about the Bible and whatever else sparks my spirit. Thanks!

  • alliespence

    Wow! Big huge thank you for including me on this list! It is such an honour to be listed amongst some of my favourite female Christian bloggers! So thankful for the amazing community blogging can bring! :)

  • Beth

    Thank you for including me on this list and for even thinking about this!!! 

  • Elizabeth

    Honored  to be on this list. Thanks for the inclusion.
