Below you will find 10 female Christian authors. Some are my friends, while others I have had the pleasure to get to know (or even interview on my podcast From Head to Heart). I pray you buy, follow, and support these amazing women of God and that God meets you in the pages of their books.
What I look for in a Christian author
I love Christian authors who stay true to the Word and are not afraid to speak the Truth with love and grace. Demonstrating that God is holy and just as much as He is loving and kind.
How to find good Christian authors
Finding good Christian authors is important. When I am looking to buy new books from Christian authors, I will read their bio, look at their social media to see if their message is consistent, and look to see if they preach the whole Word. I love reading from different Christian authors that deliver the Word in the gifts that God has given each of them.
FYI, these are in no particular order! A few of these are friends of mine, so if you’re so if you are looking for new Christian authors to be encouraged by in your walk with God, don’t forget to show support and buy their books!
Phylicia Masonheimer: Stop Calling Me Beautiful
Christian Faith, Christian Women’s Issues, Christian Spiritual Growth
“You’re a beautiful daughter of the Most High King.” And it’s true. But it’s not the whole truth. The beauty of being God’s daughter has backstory.
If you’re tired of hearing the watered-down Christian teaching and hungry for a deeper spiritual life—one that gives real answers to your hardest questions—Stop Calling Me Beautiful teaches you how. You will learn
- how to pursue the truths of who God is and who you are in relationship to Him
- how to study Scripture, and how your view of God determines how you face life’s challenges
- how legalism, shallow theology, and false teaching keep you from living boldly as a woman of the Word
- how to experience God’s presence in painful circumstances
Jesus doesn’t offer a powerless salvation. He makes your brokenness part of His whole redemption story—if you allow Him to. Don’t settle for a feel-good faith. If you want victory over insecurity, fear, shame, and the circumstances you are facing, it’s time to embrace Jesus. All of Him.
Phylicia Masonheimer teaches Christian women how to apply faith to the realities of life. She is a Christian author and blogger, podcast host, and speaker. Her writing focuses on overcoming sin and difficulty by the power of a maturing personal relationship with God. Phylicia lives in northern Michigan with her husband and children.

These questions haunt many of us, leaving us sick with anxiety and frozen into inaction: what if my hope only leads to disappointment? What if I embrace joy only to have it ripped from my hands?

Emily Copeland: Starving the Fairytale
Christian Spiritual Growth, Religious Literature & Fiction
The purpose of Starving the Fairytale is to illuminate the empty messaging about “self” that is drawing Christian and non-Christian women into a dead-end journey of self-discovery and to hold it against the Light of truth to help them fully follow Jesus. The reader will explore relatable life experiences that are impacted by the message of “self-love” in today’s culture.
The “fairytale” that the New-Age self-discovery journey promises is exposed along with the nuanced messaging that exists to lead women into confusion about the truth of Jesus and the “truth” of the world around them. The hollow journey of self will be unveiled as it begins subtly with self-care, leading to self-discovery, self-love, self-acceptance, self-reliance, and ultimately to self as god. And where will it land? With the Message that delivers; the Gospel, explaining salvation FROM self and to the “new” woman in Christ that they have been journeying to find all along.
Emily Copeland is a Christian author and encourager.
Michelle Myers and Somer Phoebus: She Works His Way
Christian Personal Growth, Christian Women’s Issues
We know it deeply. It is so hard to juggle work, home, and spiritual life. As working
women, we’ve wrestled with tough questions:
· How can I be effective in my work, and stay committed to the Gospel?
· How can I be dedicated to my family, when my job is so demanding?
· Why am I working so hard, and still so unfulfilled?
Sound familiar? Like you, we see a culture that promotes success at all costs, and
working women are falling for it. It’s happening every day. Priorities are shifting. Things are getting done . . . but are we doing what matters most?
And that’s why we wrote this book. This is the story of how we traded the lies of the
world for the truth of our loving Father–the lessons we learned that challenged culture’s
“good things” so we could find the greatest thing.
The book you’re holding in your hands is really a conversation–a conversation that
pushes back against our culture with a Gospel-centered approach to work and
womanhood, for the glory of God and the good of others.
Let’s get to work. His way.
Michelle + Somer are moms, wives, women called to work, best friends, and co-leaders of She Works His Way – a discipleship community for working women.

Alexandra Hoover: Eyes Up
Christian Personal Growth, Christian Women’s Issues, Christian Spiritual Growth

If you’ve thought these things, you aren’t alone. Author and speaker Alexandra Hoover has been in that dark place too. In her debut book, Eyes Up, she reveals that God offers a clear way out—by getting your eyes off your surroundings and raising them up to the Ebenezer stone moments in your life. Ebenezer stone by Ebenezer stone, God did this for Alexandra, helping her trace his grace. He lifted her eyes to see the places He had met her and helped her along, even in the darkest parts of the story, and on top of that, He casted vision for her mission and purpose as a member of His family. And now, in Eyes Up, you can experience the very same thing as you learn to:
- Chart your own Ebenezer
- Journey with God, stone by stone
- Learn how to embrace God’s sovereignty in every twist and turn of your life
- Enjoy the gift of confident faith, no matter what part of the story you face today
- Walk away with your own clear testimony of God’s faithfulness in your life to share with others who need help and faith right now
- Understand your place in God’s family and His mission for your life
Are you ready to finally see God’s hand at work in countless moments that lay behind you—and more than that, trust His heart and see His vision for the moments ahead? Then look up with Alexandra to the Ebenezer stones that God has not only built in your story, but wants to use in mighty, missional ways.

Simi John: I Am Not
Christian Women’s Issues, Christian Spiritual Growth
Are you tired of struggling with your identity and settling for a lesser version of you?

Are you willing to change not just your mindset but the way you live?

This devotional study book is:

Culture has its own assumptions or half-truths that we call stereotypes that can easily make its way into our lives and control the way we perceive ourselves and others. It is time for us to change the narrative that culture says about women by becoming a different kind of woman.
So, we rise up, tearing off labels and declaring to the world, “I am not!”
