potluck friday: 5 fab women to follow

It’s potluck Friday and once again we’re keeping it simple . . . real simple. Just like last week, this list could go on for a mile (and last week it did because of all of you!) We are going to get it started by sharing the scoop on five women who inspire us and many others daily online.

Then it’s your turn to add your #FF favs in the comment section.

By the end of the day, our mutual communities will be loaded with more light and more glory directed heavenward simply by believers uniting online. If you use the Follow Friday hashtag (#) effectively, this is a great way to build a targeted community that you can trust, learn from, and with whom you can swap resources and knowledge.

We know the #FF is a Twitter thing, but we selected peeps you will be able to find in many places. We highly recommend you friend them on Facebook, “like” their fan pages, drop by to comment on their blogs or check out their websites. You’ll be blessed.

Here we go…

Patsy Clairmont is an author, Women of Faith speaker, and book-lover held captive by the pages of a well-penned story. And, on Wednesdays you’ll find her in search of whimsy. Read her blog and follow her on twitter @PatsyClairmont

Dedra Herod describes herself as “just a chick in love with Jesus, her family, coffee, and running like a mother.” Read her blog and follower her on twitter @DedraHerod

Sandra Heska King is a writer and blogger living sticky for Jesus. She’s also a wife, mom, grandma, nurse, and @Compassion child sponsor who is finally learning to rest. Read her blog and follow her on twitter @SandraHeskaKing

Melinda Lancaster is a follower of Christ who ministers, teaches, counsels, and writes, in hopes of offering encouragement to those who grow weary on the road called life. Read her blog and follow her on twitter @heartcures

Michelle Sarabia is a speaker, writer, and inspirer. She blogs about her journey as a woman, a wife, a mother, and a follower of Christ. Read her blog and follow her on twitter @MichelleSarabia

Okay—it’s your turn—give us at least five of your #FollowFriday favorites!
