Redbud nurtures a community of Christian women who create rather than merely consume. We are a diverse group of authors, writers and speakers who communicate in order to empower women to use their voices to be world-changers. We are committed to supporting all Redbud members. We create and maintain community by meeting regularly, connecting through social media outlets, and networking through our various channels of influence.

Fearlessly expanding the feminine voice in our communities, faith, and culture.
