Candidly Christian is powered by a group of women working together to help you grow in your walk with God. We refer to ourselves as the Candid gals, and each of one us is a real woman, living real life. We aren’t on a stage. We won’t put on airs, or try to look better than we really are. We share the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to living life as a Christian woman in the real world. Find out more about our authors below:
