The ultimate list of Latter-day Saint Bloggers, Podcasters, and other influencers
These men and women are spreading goodness and light in their own unique ways
Latter-Day Saint Bloggers and Influencers who spread goodness
I aim for this to be the ultimate list of Latter-day Saint bloggers, podcasters, and influencers who are spreading goodness and light online. I’m starting with just 11 women, but I plan to add Latter-day Saint bloggers and influencers to this list regularly. If you are a Latter-day Saint blogger or any type of influencer, fill out THIS FORM and we’ll add you! If you know of someone who should be on this list but isn’t, have them fill out the same form!
But first, let me tell you a bit about why this site is named “Designed For Goodness.”
You are Designed For Goodness
Have you ever designed something? Maybe you designed your new baby’s room? Or perhaps you designed a holiday meal for your family? Or maybe a beautiful printable quote?
What was your intent in designing it? Did you hope it would be useless and of no benefit? Or did you hope it would bring goodness into someone’s life?
God designed you. I believe He designed you for goodness. I can imagine Him thinking of your incredible potential – all the good you would accomplish – as He carefully created you. You have a unique set of talents and gifts and passions (aka your superpower) that allows you to touch others in a way only you can. I believe God wants you to use that superpower for goodness. He designed you for goodness.
I hope these examples of Latter-day Saint bloggers and podcasters who are spreading the goodness in their unique ways inspire you. I’ve listed them in alphabetical order. Also, I plan to continually add Latter-day Saint bloggers and podcasters here – there are so many amazing Latter-day Saint women out there who are spreading light and goodness online. If your favorite isn’t listed here, tell them to fill out THIS FORM so I can add them to the next list!

#1 - Amanda Louder - Sex Coach
Latter-day Saint podcaster and Certified Life coach
From Misty: I love Amanda’s bravery in addressing a subject that we (sadly) often think of as taboo in our culture. Her respect for and understanding of this subject is inspiring. She brings much-needed light and clarity to the fun and spiritual aspects of sex.

How Amanda Helps
I’m a Certified Life Coach, and I help Latter-day Saint Women learn to embrace their sexuality and love their sex life. I help them work through their beliefs around sex, their frustration, and resentment for their husbands for wanting it and learn to fully embrace this important part of themselves to create a better relationship with themselves, their spouse, and their Heavenly Parents.
Why Amanda Feels Passionately about sexuality
Because I was once these women. I didn’t understand my sexuality. I felt a lot of guilt and shame around sex. I resented my husband for wanting it. But after learning how to fully embrace it, I am living my best life. I can help other women have this too.
I want you to feel more confident about yourself in every area of your life. I want you to have a better relationship and intimacy with your spouse. I also want you to grow in your testimony and relationship with your Heavenly Parents. Last, I want you to feel less frustration, anger, guilt, shame, and resentment.

#5 - Brooke Snow - Gospel Self-Help Coach
Latter-day Saint Blogger, Podcaster, and coach
From Misty: I just recently found Brooke’s podcast at the recommendation of a friend. I listened to ONE episode of her podcast (How to spiral up), and I knew I wanted her wisdom in my life. Her approach to self-help with a gospel core is refreshing.
How Brooke Helps
I am a habits and identity coach. I help Latter-day Saint women uncover their divine identity through holistic habits that support body, mind, and spirit. My approach is to marry self help and Gospel principles. We all know that healthy habits bring healthy benefits. We all know what we “should” be doing. What usually trips us up is how to be consistent, how to stay motivated, how to keep going after getting derailed. I teach an approach to habits that is loving, forgiving, and sustainable so even the tiniest effort is rewarded. By small and simple things are great things brought to pass.
Why Brooke Feels Passionately about her work
When you are consistent in the fundamental self-care habits, you are able to more fully show up in life to live your purpose, support your people, and be who God created you to be. It is thrilling to help provide a simple framework and protocol for Latter-day Saint women that supports them in doing whatever it is they are called to do on this earth!
I want you to have more hope in the journey of personal growth, more love for yourself, a closer connection to God, and to fall in love with the process of repentance (which is really all about changing and developing into who God created you to be.) I also want you to have less stress, less critical self judgement, less prideful fear of God, less discouragement, and be less stuck in unhealthy patterns.
Brooke's Gift for you:
The #1 habit in my life is meditation. I have a free mini meditation course called, “The Miracle of Meditation: How to transform your prayers for more presence, connection, and revelation. It’s such a great starting point for people who already pray but need a bridge between prayer and a meditation practice.

#8 - Chrissy Olsen - Beautiful Printable Designer
Latter-day Saint Blogger, Graphic designer, and Photoshop Course instructor
From Misty: I’ve been friends with Chrissy for a few years now, and while she is a very talented graphic designer, what truly impresses me about her is her love of the one. She thinks about her followers as REAL PEOPLE and does all she can to make their lives easier through her gifts. While she does have a store full of beautiful, inexpensive printables, she insists on making many available for free b/c she remembers a time in her life when “$3 for a printable would have been too much”.
How Chrissy Helps
I create gorgeous printables that making ministering easy and fun. I believe we minister all the time without even realizing it. Every time we sit down and play with our kids, we are ministering. When we send a card or text a friend, we are ministering. Every time we serve in the church, we are ministering. And printables are a fun way to make ministering personal and easy. When you send someone a pretty note letting them know you are thinking of them, it makes their day! And it takes no time at all with a pretty printable download. Playing Book of Mormon Bingo while talking about the prophets is really fun and easy, and so memorable. Those teaching moments are priceless. Printables make life easier, prettier, and more fun!
Why Chrssy Feels Passionately about Printables
My printables will help you find more joy in service and ministry with less stress and worry about the “how.” I provide easy ways for you to minister and teach so you just have to download, print, and enjoy.
Chrissy's Gift for you:
I would love to give you a free printable I Spy Temples Game! You can get yours here: https://www.ministeringprintables.com/join/
#9 - emily baker - professional organizer
Latter-day Saint Blogger, coach, speaker
How emily Helps
I help LDS women and mothers handle overwhelm, struggle, and stress using principles from the gospel and from my training as a professional organizer, and coach, so they can experience more balance in life and deeper relationships with God, family and self by creating a spiritual well organized home. I believe every Mother is a Strong Mother. Sometimes we lose sight of that woman, sometimes we think she doesn’t exist, and sometimes we just need a little extra support. I love to help make it simpler by talking about things such as: the fact that perfect isn’t actually the goal, how we get sucked into thinking it is, and what to do about it all; teaching why the problem isn’t a lack of motivation, discipline, or even using the right system and what you can easily do instead.
Why emily Feels Passionately about organizing:
I know that there is great power in the call of women and mother, and that this is where important change for the world happens. I want to be a part of this great work by supporting, teaching, and reminding women and mothers of their own divinity and ability to fulfill their roles.
My goal is for you to cut out a lot of the distractions, chaos & noise, make managing your home a side-gig rather than take up the whole day, so you have time, space, and energy to learn to better Hear Him all without the guilt, without the stress, without the overwhelm.
emily's Gift for you:
I offer a 25 minute call, to identify 3 key areas contributing to your overwhelm, struggle and stress so you know where to focus your time & energy in order to experience more balance in your life. No Cost, No Sale, No Pressure

#11 - Emily & Dave Jones - Supporters of Youth
Latter-day Saint Course Instructors
From Misty: From the minute I heard about Emily and Dave’s Family Tech University, I couldn’t stop telling people about it. I shared it on Facebook, and Emily almost immediately reached out to thank me. As I’ve come to know her better over the last few months, I’ve realized that she is a remarkable soul. I sincerely appreciate her confidence in our young people and their capacity to choose to be wise.
Who Emily and Dave Help:
Where to find Emily and Dave:
How Emily and Dave Helps
We are unique in our offering! We have curated a collection of powerful and convincing materials from the web and organized them into an online course for young people, ages 12 and up. Powerful and engaging videos, articles, and spiritual ideas combine to make for a potent learning experience on the topics parents are most concerned about, including social media, pornography, smartphone etiquette, life vision, and the importance of stillness. The aim? For a young person to come away personally convinced (not lectured and badgered) in their own hearts to be wise with technology. In a nutshell, we are experts at helping parents nurture the all-powerful Internal Filter- the most powerful protection that a young person can have in a tech-saturated world.
Why Emily and Dave feel passionately about internal filters:
The prevalent doctrine of “fear based” parenting was something that just didn’t jive with us as we were searching for the best way to handle technology with our own 5 children when they were young. Four of those children are teenagers now, and the approach of nurturing the Internal Filter has been powerful and life-changing in our family… we’ve seen it with our own eyes! We want to help parents achieve that same peace and confidence in their own homes.
Emily and Dave's Goals:
Parents who access the power of the Family Tech University Workshop will place before their children an experience that will nurture their heart-felt beliefs. Every parent’s hope is that when their child walks out the door- away from parental monitoring and away from digital filters, that they will still CHOOSE goodness. This nurturing of their most powerful protection- their desires to choose well for their own happiness, is our goal and specialty.

She is a beautiful artist, and she uses and shares her art with others, but in addition, her goal and purpose are to inspire you to find time for your creative purpose and goals. She is an inspiration to many.
How Heidi Helps
Why Heidi Feels passionately about Creativity:
I have a passion for the emotional and spiritual benefits of art journaling. I love inspiring women to set their own creative goals and stick with them.
I want you to have more desire to put down your phone and create something beautiful. I want you to spend more time studying and enjoying the scriptures and finding meaning. I want you to have a more joyful, creative life.
#14- Jamie Johnson - Moment Collector
Latter-day Saint blogger, artist, speaker and writer
From Misty: If I could only use 1 word to describe Jamie, it would be faithful. She is full of faith in God and Christ and those she loves. She is also loyal (another meaning of the word faithful) to God and Christ and those she loves and serves – including her followers. She inspires me to slow down, appreciate stillness, and find what she calls “wonder” in my life.
How Jamie Helps:
I have created a free week of wonder series to help women slow down and savor the simple. I create monthly journaling videos to help women plan out their months with intention. I offer free printable collections for women to use to create wonder in the lives of their families. I also write inspirational blog posts to help women be more faith-filled, hopeful, and appreciate the small and simple wonders of everyday life. I just published my first guided journal called the Moment Journal – a daily journal to record what matters most.
Why Jamie feels passionately about wonder:
I want you to uncover the wonder that is already naturally there in the middle of your ordinary days. I want you to experience less stress, less anxiety, and more peace. Wonder is being filled with a sense of awe and reverence for life and all the beauty around you. This is what I want to help you find.
Jamie's Gift for you:
#15- Jason Bringhurst - SUnshine Collector
Latter-day Saint blogger
How Jason Helps:
I strive to share my faith and spread a little sunshine in a world with a lot of negativity. I share stories of things that happen or have happened in my life. I also share thoughts on current events. I often share my beliefs and how my faith plays a part in my life. I also have a section of the blog dedicated to hydrocephalus, a condition my 8 year old son Xavier has, and our journey through over 20 brain surgeries.

#16- Jolene winn - addiction recovery support
Latter-day Saint blogger, podcaster, and life coach
How Jolene Helps:
I coach women to help them overcome betrayal trauma, establish boundaries, conquer triggers, and overcome fear of relapses so they can live a life independent if their husband’s pornography addiction.
Why jolene feels passionately about recovery:
After healing from my husband’s pornography addiction, I felt a passion and responsibility to reach out and find other women who were as lost and alone as I used to be. Once I found the tools to gain control back of my life, I knew it wasn’t something I could keep to myself. I feel called to work with these women, to find them, and to teach them everything I’ve learned in order to help them heal and move forward.
My clients will gain self confidence, control, and peace. They will learn that they can heal and move forward even if their husband’s actions never change.

#17- Karen Bates - creating peaceful homes
Latter-day Saint blogger, course creator, coach
who karen helps:
I help parents who want a more peaceful heart and home.
How karen Helps:
I create courses, books, support groups, and programs that take parents through a series of challenges where they establish a consistent connection to God so they can let go of perfectionism and focus on creating a peaceful home that makes a powerful impact on the world.
Why karen feels passionately about educating parents:
I believe each person has a work on Earth no one else can do and that people will suffer if it gets neglected. As an idealist, I’ve struggled with perfectionism my whole life and with worry that I’m not doing enough to help others. As I’ve learned to let go of my agenda and rely on God to guide to me to where he needs me to be, I’ve acquired an intense desire to help others create peaceful hearts and homes which allow them and their families to make a powerful impact on the world as they learn to work with God in using their unique gifts in the fight for good.
Parents will have less overwhelm and more peace in their hearts. They will have to do less nagging and pushing as they have more intrinsically motivated people in their homes. They will have less confusion and anxiety and more focused purpose and impact on the world.
Karen's Gift to you:
I have a free Quiz “Is Your Child Ready for a Smart Phone?” with an accompanying ebook “The 5 Key Lessons That Prepare Your Child for a Smartphone”
#18- Kay West - Faithful Women Gatherer
Latter-day Saint blogger, event host
From Misty: I have never met Kay, but I hope to someday. I’ve met many who know her, and their eyes shine when they talk about her. They can’t help but smile. My impression of her is one who “seeks not her own,” but truly wants to lift other women and see them shine. You can see that even in the profile picture she chose to include here (she is on the top left).
How Kay Helps:
At A Worldwide Sisterhood, we share testimonies of Christ from women in all seasons of life and different backgrounds, cultures, and ethnicities. We provide a platform for all women to share and learn. The Spirit speaks to us all in a different way, so we share through video, blog, song, and poetry. We also share gospel messages from personal revelation to lift and inspire others. We encourage all women to share their voices and testimonies so we may all learn from one another and grow together in this worldwide sisterhood.
Why Kay feels passionately about women of faith:
I believe every woman of the world is needed to stand up and help shine the light of Christ into the world. Every voice and experience needs to be heard. Everyone does this in their own way, and every woman who shares the light of Christ should shine. I believe in ecouraging and lifting everyone and providing a platform and community for them to do so.
I want you to gain connection with other like minded women, to feel a part of this worldwide sisterhood as we share together, encourage and lift one another. At A Worldwide Sisterhood, we want to inspire you with the courage to share your own stories and light. You will find stillness and peace as we provide a moment for you to pause, to read, and to listen to the messages we share.

#23 - Michelle Bowler - Military Spouse Supporter
Latter-day Saint blogger and podcaster
From Misty: I’ve known Michelle since she was 14 or 15. I was her Young Women leader. Even then, she was unbelievably good. She has always been firmly on God’s team. Her husband is a military chaplain, and she is often left home with their beautiful daughters. Instead of letting frustration or bitterness overtake her, she determined to reach out to others and has created a beautiful online community of women supporting women.
How Michelle Helps:
Why Michelle feels passionately about waiting warriors:
I want military spouses to learn how to be emotionally, mentally and physically healthy, in a word, to thrive. Marriages don’t have to be torn apart by deployments or hanging by a thread at retirement. Spouses don’t have to drown in loneliness and overwhelmed by parenthood during separations. Children don’t have to be estranged from their service member parents. I want to educate you on healthy ways to cope with and discuss the heavy burdens of the military lifestyle, instead of burying feelings and suffering from depression, anxiety, or resentment. I want to help you intentionally plan specific ways to connect, find joy, and grow closer as families during separations. I want to teach you to communicate and work together effectively to keep you marriage strong and healthy. In short, I you to understand, as a military family, that survival isn’t the only option. With proper tools and support, we can all truly thrive.
My goal is for my Waiting Warriors to not only have the tools they need to successfully navigate this lifestyle, but that they will have the hope and confidence that they can be happy through it all.
