Resources

God’s Word is the ultimate source of truth and should always be the determiner of what we measure to be true. It’s always important to compare what we learn to the Bible to make sure we are absorbing truth.

I’m always looking for more ministries and blogs that are devoted to pointing people to Jesus, and basing their outreach and teachings on the Bible (not opinion or trends). I’ve listed a few below. They have been very impactful in my walk with the Lord.

GirlDefined Ministries

These sisters from Texas are wonderful mentors to encourage girls and women to discover and pursue godly womanhood and femininity in Christ. They have written three books so far (Girl Defined, Love Defined, and Sex, Purity, and the Longings of a Girl’s Heart) which are awesome, biblical resources.

Desiring God

Desiring God is daily full of solid, in depth, theological articles and studies, led by Pastor John Piper. I love that there is a resource that I can turn to for context and conviction that is at my fingertips with categories galore!
