Today's Christian Woman Writer's Guidelines

Our Purpose

Today's Christian Woman's mission is to encourage, equip, and inspire Christian women to live out their faith fearlessly in the grit of everyday life. Today's Christian Woman is a daily website and weekly iPad app for the Christian woman who wants to love God more deeply and live fearlessly for his kingdom.

Our Readers

Today's Christian Woman readers are women who are serious about their Christian faith, knowledgeable about the Bible, and who are motivated to make a difference in the body of Christ as well as the world.

Our Tone

Today's Christian Woman articles need to offer first-hand, honest, biblical perspectives on a woman's life, relationships, faith, and ministry. Any anecdotes should be real-life only. Articles need to contain a distinct evangelical Christian perspective. If possible, please use the New Living Translation when quoting Scripture. Our articles don't shy from covering tough issues real women face. Life is messy and complex; we seek to acknowledge that by avoiding pat answers and formulaic conclusions, and look for authors who do the same.
