Hi, friend! This post is dedicated to 7 incredible Christian authors you may not know about but need to! It takes a lot of hard work to write a book but to get it published? We need to champion our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ for these accomplishments! Under each author, there is a link to their book, Instagram, and website if they have one. Be sure to check them out, say hello, give them a follow, and maybe buy their book! I had the pleasure of having each one of these authors on the Bless It or Block It Podcast!
Audrey is the author and artist of Deep Waters, a graphic art journal dedicated to peaceful encouragement for the anxious heart. She is a wife, mom to two babes, artist, mental health advocate, entrepreneur, and podcast host of Painted Pieces. You can find Audrey on Instagram at @brushandbarley and brushandbarley.com.
2. Bethny Ricks
Bethny is the author of An Inconvenient Journey, a collection of thoughts, feelings, and reflections on a journey of healing. She is a hometown girl, and a mother of two children; which means she has deep love for coffee and naps. Bethny has a passion for writing about wholeness, faith, and healing on purpose. All while reminding the reader why we should not sprint through life’s unexpected valleys. You can find Bethny on Instagram @myway_withwords and at bethnyricks.com.
3. Noah Herrin
Noah is based out of Atlanta, Georgia with his wife, Maddy and their Goldendoodle, Mogley. During quarantine in 2020, Noah wrote a book titled, Viral Jesus, that is real, raw, hilarious, and super convicting. This book is in my top 5 Christian books for a heart posture check. Also, you will agree with me that Noah is officially team captain for Chick-fil-A. You can find Noah on Instagram at @noahherrin and also his podcast, All Our Ways, wherever you listen to podcasts.

Lauren is an author, blogger, and speaker based in Arlington, Texas. She enjoys dancing at concerts, watching baseball, and playing with her Labradoodle. She is the author of UNSHAKEABLE. Her college experience didn’t go like she expected. Instead of lifelong friends, social stuff every weekend, and a new bff roommate, she found herself lonely, afraid, and overwhelmed by anxiety.
