About Women Finding God:

Women Finding God is a blog run by LaToya Edwards. This site shares practical tips and encouragement on how to grow your faith during hard times: quiet time with God, deepening your prayer life, overcoming fear, and learning to trust God.

I consider everyone that reads my blog a friend. And like any good friend I love sharing products and resources with all of you. My primary purpose in sharing anything on this blog is to help and encourage my readers. I share many different products and resources. When choosing which things to share I start with things that have worked well for myself and my family and then I look for things that have been recommended to me by other trusted friends. I do my best to share only family-friendly products and resources. At times I share these products with affiliate links (more on that later).

Advertising on Women Finding God:

There may be product reviews and sponsored posts on this blog from time to time.

Each review/post is something that has been personally used by myself.  Some reviews/posts are of products that I have purchased myself and just really wanted to share with my readers. I am an affiliate for most of the companies that I do reviews for. I sign up for their affiliate program and they provide me with a free product for me to review. I do accept compensation for my reviews, in addition to the free product. However, compensation will never affect my review. They are always 100% my opinion and experience with the product: the good, the bad and the ugly.


Affiliate Links:

I do participate in affiliate programs with different companies. These are not paid ads. I will do my best to let you know when a post contains affiliate links.

When you click on any of the affiliate links I earn a small commission from any orders that you may place with that company. Affiliate links do not affect the price you pay or the quality of the products you receive.  The commission may come from a single purchase you make in one day or from purchases made over a set time frame (like 30 days).  The set time depends on the company.

Each affiliate program collects and retains its own data. I do not have access to the personal information that is collected by these programs. It is best to read their individual privacy policies for more information on how your data is collected and used.

LaToya Edwards is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com.

Amazon Affiliates, a third party system, uses cookies to serve advertisements and links to products on Amazon.com. You may read more about Amazon Affiliates and their Operating Agreement here.
