Wise Women: My Favorite Christian Youtube Vlogs

Imagine this: you, in a cozy chair, with a cup of coffee and a notebook and your favorite pen.

Just by itself that sounds great, huh?

But, now add an amazing Youtube channel from someone you can learn from…And now I am in my happy-zone!

As a Christian woman, I crave the instruction and wise experience of Titus 2 women around me.  I am referring of course to the following scripture:

Titus 2:3
Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands,so that no one will malign the word of God.

Once there was a time in my life, when I was the “younger woman,” but now, I am entering into the age when I would be considered an “older woman!”  Regardless, I STILL need to be instructed by moms, especially moms who have already passed this way.

So, with that in mind, I have collected __ of my favorite Youtube personalities that fall into the category of Titus 2. Some are older, some are young and what you would consider to be “millennial.” 

They are all great teachers!

May watching these ladies bring wisdom and joy into your daily life as your walk your own personal paths.

The Homespun Wife
My #1 and favorite mama to listen to.  Sherry is full of compassion and grace, great advice and she is firmly planted in the word of God. I love to hear her talk about her trips to Dollar General.  She also runs a growing scripture writing facebook group.

Jamerrill’s Large Family Table
Jamerrill is truly a presence online and her videos tell you why.  She is warm, pleasant and smiling in every video no matter what is going on around her. She has 8 children and talks about how to feed everyone, clothe everyone and keep her family organized.

Marcie Ferrell @ Thankful Homemaker
I wish Marci Ferrell lived near me so I could ask her advice whenever I needed to. She talks about homemaking and your Christian walk. I especially love the video entitled: Delight in Being Workers at Home.

Lauren @ The Joyful Homemaker
First of all, I love her accent.  But, she is a very gentle-spirited young mama who you can relate to.  She talks about homemaking, marriage, parenting and her Christian faith.

Beth Moore Sermons
You have heard Beth’s name She is a prolific author and speaker.

Priscilla Shirer @ Going Beyond Ministries
You will recognize Priscilla from movies such as War Room and ____. She is an amazing speaker.  She is very passionate and inspiring to listen to.

Parsnips and Parsimony
Follow Art and Jannelle as they travel through their daily family life.  Mostly she does shopping hauls (her budget is SO amazingly low), but it’s fun to watch her family start new projects and just be together.  

The Fundamental Home
Amanda’s focus is her tight shopping budget and amazing shopping hauls.  She brings her teenage daughter on a lot and she is a sweetheart.  She has also begun sharing her morning Bible studies with her viewers. 

Jady A.
This past summer, as I was getting ready to homeschool my preschooler, I got hooked on Jady’s videos. She gives SO MANY creative and smart ways to homeschool littles. Beyond that, she is a minimalist and you get to see how she does it. She discusses debt, cooking, minimalism, and her faith.

Anna Willemstein
This wonderful young woman gives a great testimony of why she began vlogging on Youtube.  She wanted to reach women for Christ.  She shared Bible studies, scripture journaling, and tons of beautiful things that will lift your heart!

Enjoy!

The Bible Journaling Break Down

Do any of you Bible journal?  Or have you created a “war binder” (as in the movie “War Room”)?

Well, I must be behind the times, because I JUST discovered these topics in the last two weeks.  I knew people were coloring in their Bibles, but I didn’t know if was a THING.

Most likely I didn’t know about it because, well, I have three kids, I homeschool and work from home…etc. etc. etc. Hobbies? Who has time for hobbies?!

Anyway, I came across it because I have been watching a ton of my new favorite Youtube-r The Homespun Wife.  She is so enjoyable to watch and listen to and she is very established in both scripture and wisdom. I usually listen to her as I am prepping my kids lessons for the week or responding to emails. I think I enjoy her so much because of her southern accent.

So, what is Bible journaling?

From what I can gather, it comes in a few different forms.

Coloring your Bible

First of all, and this one is very popular, you can purchase Bibles with pre-printed pictures that you are able to decorate and color.  The Inspire Bible is one of these.  I bought it last year, and proceeded to leave it out in the rain: ruined.  😦

That is what I would call “level one” Bible journaling.

REALLY, REALLY Coloring your Bible

Level two is illustration.  Some of these amazing women take these Bibles and turn them into works of ART.  My mouth dropped open as I watched video after video of this young woman turning a page of scripture into something I would hang on my wall.

Scripture Writing

Level three is what I will call scripture writing.  In scripture writing, you are spending time on just one scripture, meditating on it, praying over it, as you write it out.  And of course, decorating and illustrating the page too.

War Binders

Now, let’s talk about War Binders.  I remember the movie War Room (never saw it, I KNOW!) and the woman’s “war closet.’  While I love that idea, we don’t all have an entire closet to turn into a prayer room…so along came “war binders.”

War binders are basically a way to organize your faith and prayer life. This is based heavily on the book Fervent by the actress who starred in the film.  She says we need to have an “attack plan” because certainly Satan has an attack plan on us!

Women are making these things like ka-razy!  Some of them are plain, some of them are amazingly complicated.

They divide them into sections and many women have chosen to write out their prayers in sections (like: prayer requests, prayers for self, things you are grateful for, etc).  In addition they (of course!) decorate them.

These concepts inspire me.

First of all it’s wonderful to see so many women in the Word of God (especially young women). But, also, it makes your time with God important, personal and you take ownership for what you are reading.  It makes you SLOW-DOWN and be with God…something that I think, as women, is really hard to do.

So…are you game?  Do you already do this? Tell me about your binders or your bible journaling below!

I will be doing a post to share my Faith Binder with you soon!
