Looking for ideas on Pinterest for Women's Ministry? Here are some tips I've learned with my own searching.
The Art of Searching Pinterest
for Women's Minsitry
Posted September 16, 2015
There really is an art to searching online in order to find things that are helpful to us individually and also for ministry.
There is just so much bad stuff out there that you have to weed all that out in order to find the little tidbits of gold.
I think you just have to practice weeding through that and not allow yourself to get sucked away down all the rabbit holes.
One thing I find is that Pinterest can be a time-waster if I allow it so a lot of times I set the timer on my kitchen stove for however many minutes I want to limit myself to.
I don't know if that will help you or not but it helps me because I have to physically get up and turn off the timer unless I want to hear it beep every few seconds. Usually that is enough distraction for me to start working on something else.
I know it is hard to find good women's ministry ideas. So much out there is just not very useful.
With the advent of Pinterest I find that I'll see these huge graphics for so many ways to do this or so many tips to do that but they end up leading you back to that same graphic with little or no content or very skewed content. It is very frustrating.
I don't even look for anything on the web anymore searching the terms, "women's ministry" or "ladies ministry" because I always end back at my own website pages.
I have to be creative when I search in order to avoid finding my own material. Here are some of the things that I search for when browsing Pinterest in order to find some new things to use in women's ministry.
I thought I would share my list of terms in case you are ending back up here at my website too! Frankly, I don't find that Pinterest is the best place to search Bible related or "spiritual" things so these are more along the practical line.
Instead of "women's ministry" or "ladies ministry" try searching the following terms for ideas.
