When I first started my YouTube channel back in 2018, I myself was just beginning to get into YouTube as a consumer. Up until then, I mainly used it to listen to sermons or when I needed to look something specific up. I hadn’t yet gotten into following different YouTubers, keeping up with their journeys like you would a TV show, or regularly visiting the platform to consume content.
Though I created my first couple videos in 2018, I didn’t start getting consistent with my channel until the end of 2019. But over the course of that time, I did become a consistent consumer. I learned more about how the world of YouTube works. I started to enjoy how I could save videos to my “watch later” queue, then select the perfect one to watch for the slot of time I had—whether that meant a ten minute video I could watch while doing my hair, or a longer video I could listen to during a longer drive.
Before this, I knew statistically that YouTube is a place where a lot of people spend their time, but I didn’t realize how, for many people it was a part of their lifestyle—until it slowly started to become a part of mine.
This is the case especially for the younger generation—I see it a lot in working with high schoolers through my church’s youth group. Watching videos while doing those day-to-day tasks you’d normally be doing alone, in a way feels like having a friend with you in the mundane moments of life. This is something Generation Z has grown up with, even more so than my Millennial friends and I.
While there’s obviously a need for boundaries with social media and a need to preserve the white space in our lives, the reality is that various social media platforms are where a lot of people are spending their time. All that to say, even more so now than when I started, I believe in the need for this space to be infiltrated with people who are going to create content that points other people to Christ.
Over New Year’s, I was in Nashville for an informal retreat with some other Christian influencers, and my friend Kirby (who you’ll meet below if you haven’t already) was talking about how social media is a mission field. Maybe you’ve never thought of it like that before, but it’s true. People are spending so much time in this space, and there’s a need for those people to be reached exactly where they are.
That being said, my hope with this post is to highlight some incredible women of God who are showing up in this space in all sorts of different ways. Some, through funny skit videos, some, though sit-down faith videos, some, through lifestyle content. Some share about health, others about dating and relationships, some offer encouragement and prayer, and some do a little bit of it all.
Whether learning about God overtly through a Bible study video, or watching a lifestyle vlogger’s “Day in the Life” and more subtly seeing how church is a part of her routine or how she wakes up early to start her day with God, I think this type of content is so needed. It is shaping the hearts and minds of literally thousands—so I want to highlight and honor what they are doing in hopes that if you are looking for Christian YouTube content, you find a couple new names you can add to your list.
DISCLAIMER: there are SO many incredible Christian YouTubers out there—this list is in no way comprehensive. If it were, it would be way too long! These are only a few of the ones I have enjoyed watching lately. This is also why I narrowed it down to ladies only, to help keep the list small.
I’d love to do additional posts soon sharing my favorite Christian YouTuber couples, as well as solid Christian guy YouTubers—so be sure to let me know in the comments if that’s something you’d like to see! (If you don’t want to wait, I did write a recommendation list back in 2018 when I was first starting to get into watching YouTube, and there are a few guys as well as couples listed there). But today’s list is for the ladies! Without further ado, here they are—in no particular order.
I came across Kian maybe a year ago when her testimony video appeared on my recommended videos—and I have LOVED following her journey ever since. She’s made a lot of videos sharing the different ways her relationship with Jesus has changed her life—including her approach to relationships. She was intentionally single for a year, using that time to cultivate her relationship with God (she did a whole series called “The Single Diares”). But recently, she met, started dating, and got engaged to her now fiancé, Kyle. Their story is a crazy cool testimony of what God can do! Whether it be about relationships, lifestyle, or health, I love watching all of Kian’s videos and seeing how God is an integral part of it all.
I love Milena’s say-it-like-it-is personality. I first came across her channel when her video “Untold Truth About Saving Yourself For Marriage” popped up in my feed, and after watching a few of other other videos as well, I was hooked. I appreciate her honesty as she shares all different aspects of her life: marriage, motherhood, home, managing work, the highs and lows in her relationship with God. It’s refreshing! Her and her husband Jordan also have a faith-based podcast called “As For Me and My House,” and their growing little family is the cutest!
Allison’s channel is simply delightful. Delightful isn’t even really a word I use tbh, but there’s no better word to describe the content she creates! I first discovered her when one of her routine videos was recommended to me, and I have loved keeping up with her ever since. Her videos feel so cozy and peaceful, and aesthetically, they are stunning. No matter what she’s got going on during one of her many “day in the life” vlogs, I’m always so encouraged to see her spending time with Jesus in the morning or talking about the things she’s learning in her Bible Study group. Her motto is to “live a joy-filled life”—and that, she certainly does.
Kristin is one of the first YouTubers I started watching, and she remains one of my all-time favorites. Her channel is a mix of beauty, home-making, cooking in her “Kristin’s Kitchen” series, fashion, funny challenge videos (my personal favorite from this category is her “My Husband Does My Voiceover (Round 2).” Only some of her videos are overtly faith-based—like her testimony video or her faith-based Q&A. But in all her videos, Jesus shines brightly through her kind, genuine spirit, and watching her will always infuse positivity into your day.
As you can probably tell from the title, this channel is all things BIBLE! It is run by two sisters who have a genuine heart to share God’s love with others. On their channel, you’ll find a ton of content that equips and encourages you to spend time with God, including videos on: Scripture memorization, highlighting and annotating your Bible, how to practically apply the Old Testament to your life, prayer journaling, how to read the “boring” parts of the Bible, Bible journaling, what to do when your quiet time is a struggle, and much more.
Tara, known on her IG as Blooms and Benedictions, is a friend and mentor of mine from church—and she’s someone I look up to a lot. Her insight and love for the Lord are inspiring, deep, and sincere. I can’t tell you how significantly my life has been impacted by her encouragement, her words of wisdom, and the prayers she has prayed over me. But I don’t have to tell you—because now you can experience it yourself through her YouTube channel! She just launched it this month, her first video being one where she speaks truth and prayer over the coronavirus pandemic. Going forward she will be addressing many more topics with biblical truth and prayer—be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out!
Trust me on this one: you need Kirby in your feed! Her and I had been connected for a while over Instagram, but got to hang out in person for the first time back in December at the retreat I mentioned. She is one of the most genuine people both online and off, not to mention downright hilarious. Kirby’s passion for God is contagious, and I love that she tackles all sorts of faith-based topics like forgiveness, fighting temptation, pride, preaching the gospel to others—but also mixes in a lot of lifestyle videos and the funniest skit videos including “Types Of Girls On Christian Mingle,” “Enneagram Types As YouTubers,” and “If Bible Characters Had Social Media.”
If you’re familiar with the world of Christian YouTubers at all, there’s a good chance you’re already familiar with Jess Conte. But if you’re not, then you’re welcome for the introduction! She truly has one of the kindest spirits. Jess does a variety of different videos on her channel including song covers, day in the life vlogs, fashion hauls, makeup tutorials, home videos, and plenty more. It’s always encouraging to hear and see the role faith plays in every area of her life.
Tara is your ultimate online bestie. Her and I first connected over Instagram, where she shares all things truth, encouragement, and inspiration. She recently launched her YouTube channel, and it is filled with the same. So far, she’s made videos on how to study the Bible, modesty, biblical womanhood, Christian dating, skincare—and watching them feels like having a conversation with a good friend who genuinely wants to encourage you into God’s very best for you. She pours so much heart into what she creates and it’s so clear she genuinely seeks to serve people through her content—and I promise you’ll be better for consuming it!
This is such an inspiring channel to watch! Sarah is a young wife and mama of three, and a lot of her videos are centered around the home with a focus on minimalism, natural living, health, and beauty. She also does fun series like “Wife Talk” and “Mom Talk,” and her healthy habits and food related videos are probably my favorite—they are so motivating when it comes to clean eating and healthy living. Sarah is very vocal on her channel about her love for God and how the Bible influences the way she lives, and it’s encouraging to see.
Tiff is seriously one of my online soul sisters, and I’m always encouraged by her deep love for God and His Word, and for her honesty in sharing the things she’s learning and working through in her walk with Him. I always come away from her content with a desire to seek and know God more—simply because it is apparent she has a deep and abiding relationship with Him, and it encourages me as I cultivate my own. On her YouTube channel, she reads Scripture on video and shares insights from it, and she has also been doing some fun family vlogs!
I hadn’t actually seen anything of Brittany’s online until after I met her in person on the Nashville influencer retreat I keep mentioning. She is such a kind, sincere person with a deep, evident love for Jesus. I loved our heart-to-hearts and sharing stories around the kitchen table of the Airbnb we were all staying at, and since the trip I have loved keeping up with her and the encouraging content she posts on Instagram and on her YouTube channel. In addition to faith-based content, she also posts a lot of health and fitness content—I especially love her “Healthy Starbucks Hacks” and full day of eating videos.
I don’t even remember how I first came across Heather’s YouTube channel, but I do know that I’m so glad I did! Her content is deeply rooted in Scripture, and she covers so many relatable topics like comparison, overcoming hard times, singleness, social media, waiting on God, questioning God, and more. Watching her videos feels like receiving encouraging truth and advice from a big sister who’s been there. In addition to her more traditional YouTube videos, she also posts a lot of her messages from speaking engagements, as well as video streams of the podcast she does with her husband, called “Life with the Lindseys.”
I love the way Celest’s channel seamlessly incorporates both faith and lifestyle content. Whether she’s doing a Bible study through the book of Galatians, sharing “5 Ways To Spend More Time With God,” talking about anxiety, doing a working from home day in the life, sharing a morning routine or workout routine, doing a Q&A or a good ‘ole fashioned “Get Ready With Me,” everything she puts out is encouraging, inspiring, and oh-so-relatable. Hers is truly such an enjoyable channel to watch!
You probably know her from Duck Dynasty or Dancing With the Stars of one of her bestselling books—but if you don’t, you should get to know Sadie through her YouTube channel. What I find most encouraging about Sadie is her deep, infectious love for God’s Word. You can tell she knows it inside and out, and that it has transformed her and given her a boldness in sharing it with others. She does a lot of short, encouraging messages on her channel and also posts some of her full-length sermons.
I couldn’t end a post talking about Christian girl YouTube channels without telling you about my own, now could I? If you aren’t already familiar with my channel, I do Bible study videos, healthy lifestyle vlogs, and I love addressing all sorts of different topics from a biblical perspective— including: singleness, dating, knowing what decision God wants you to make, dealing with distraction in Bible reading, and plenty more. My heart and hope is that you would walk away from my videos encouraged in your faith journey, and above all wanting to know God more. Come say hi!
One last thought: it struck me as I was compiling this list how different each of these ladies are—yet I thoroughly enjoy all of their content. Just a little reminder that every single one of us has something to bring to the table—and we don’t need to look like the person next to us to do it.
