Have you been curious about if the people you follow on social media share your faith base? Well, we did the digging and here’s what we found. There are many social media influencers who give off the “I’m a member of the Church” vibe without ever explicitly saying it. This is the magic of what is stated in 1 Peter 2:9 about being a “peculiar people.” With social media, this prophecy is alive and well in our day.
Here are 9 influencers who are members of the Church.
9. The Food Nanny
The Food Nanny is, you guessed it, a food account. It was created by Liz Edmunds and Lizi Edmunds Heaps. A mother and daughter duo who have a passion for food and the gospel. Sister Liz Edmunds is currently serving as a senior missionary in Belgium. They have a cooking show on BYUtv also called The Food Nanny that has been running for 4 seasons. Check them out for some serious inspiration on how to bring your family together through food.
8. Hailey and Brad Devine
Hailey and Brad Devine are both passionate videographers and photographers. The high school sweethearts married in the Salt Lake Temple after Brad returned home from serving his mission in Chile. Brad is half Chilean and half British, and Hailey is half Norwegian. They have 2 adorable daughters, Lucy and Greta. Together they have built their brand “Somewhere Devine.” They also host international travel expeditions at least once a year somewhere divine (get it?). Their desire to give back and their sheer talent for video production is just a couple of reasons why 241k followers find them so endearing.

6. Kristin Andrus
Kristin Andrus is a lifestyle, fitness, and food blogger with 6 kids. She has been married to her husband Jeremy for 14 years and the only thing that seems to divide them is their sports rivalry.
