One thing I’ve learned is that we sincerely need each other.
I know for a fact that the areas where we facilitate change individually, have a collective impact on our society and our world. I’m very fortunate to have come across some amazing women who ooze change, are dynamic teachers and are women who know in their own right.
I met a young woman in her twenties who is in the thick of her personal journey of self-discovery and I was able to connect her with an equally phenomenal blogger who I knew would be able to help her through her growing process.
So today I’m sharing the This Woman Knows (TWK) Top 20 List of Women Empowerment Blogs. These blogs empower women in their various niches and have incredible stories and life lessons to share. Some I know personally…some are bloggers whose words have provided answers when I needed them. So enjoy our very first annual list of wonderful women changing the world…one post at a time.
- Jerseygirl, Jesus. Faith with Attitude. Kerry and I met in a Facebook group for Christian women bloggers. It was that Jersey girl attitude that drew me in!

Kerry is a wonderful writer and has created a Christian incubator for writers. Learn more here.
