Many people blame social media for being a negative influence on society and trust me, I have definitely seen the negative sides of Instagram. It’s hard to scroll through and not compare myself to others. However, Instagram does have some redeeming qualities.
When I decided to share my faith publicly, the first place I turned to share my message of salvation through Jesus Christ was Instagram. So, despite the negative affects of the platform, I have to say it’s a great place to share your faith with the world. The more I am apart of this online community, the more people I see using this platform to also share, uplift, and inspire others.
This is such a beautiful thing!
Along my own journey of sharing God’s Word via social media, I have met some incredible young ladies who are doing powerful things for the kingdom.
They run inspiring Christian Instagram accounts, keeping Jesus at the center of everything they do. They are motivated to share God’s word with others while doing it in an encouraging, creative, and fun way.
The Christian Instagram accounts mentioned below inspire and encourage me daily, and I hope you find strength and hope in them, too!

Maddie Joy is seriously a little ray of sunshine! She can be found on Instagram at @maddiee_joy and is the founder of her blog maddieejoy.com. First and foremost, her purpose is to encourage others to walk boldly and confidently into who God has called them to be. She doesn’t just talk the talk but walks the walk by sharing her first-hand experiences of the realities of comparison being the thief of joy.
Her blog and passion for writing and speaking serves a lot of different purposes, but it all comes back to knowing Jesus and making Him known.
Amen girl, amen.
Maddie’s also passionate about the power of vulnerability and sharing the “real life stuff” behind the pretty, put-together smiles we slap on so often.
I can totally relate there.
She desires to expose fear for what it is: a liar and a thief of dreams. It has held her captive for many years and Maddie wants to use her personal experiences to help others live out the unique call set before them. She leaves a call to action; “let’s change the world, together!”.
Yes girl, let’s!
