4 Inspiring Women You Need to Follow on Instagram Right Now

We all do it. We all get lost in the scroll from time to time. Zoning out to an Instagram world filled with loveliness is a welcome relief from the push and pull of life. It’s easy to get swept away by the carefully crafted world of both social media influencers and mere mortal posters alike.

And why shouldn’t we? Instagram is one of our favorite social media platforms for good reasons. It’s visual, driven by beautiful images that can uplift and inspire even our darkest days. It’s easy, allowing us to cultivate our experiences and manage our content with less sponsored posts and unwanted rhetoric than other social media platforms. And it’s fun too. On Instagram you can interact with celebrities, get a backstage peek into the lives of women you admire, and watch mindless hours of Instastories from the people you want to be friends with in real life, but you just haven’t met yet.

So keep up with your scrolling. Don’t hide in shame. We here at Grit and Grace Life encourage you to take some time for yourself and keep on with your Instagram habit.

And while you’re at it, why not add some more beauty to your feed with these four inspirational women to follow? Each of these women shares their lives and faith with honesty, wit, and humor. All of them have stories to share and do so with courage that is inspiring, beautiful, and sometimes hilarious. Add them to your feed today for a quick and inspiring dose of feel-good inspiration that you need to get you through your next scroll attack.
