Ever since the creation of the iPod I have enjoyed listening to podcasts while cleaning or running errands or while just sitting and sipping coffee.
Podcasts are such a great simple and convenient way to get some great teaching and encouragement that fits into your schedule. You can customize your listening to your interests and needs. It is a great way to be in control of the media you take in whether at home or in your car.
I don’t have any fancy gadgets but simply use my phone. I do have an iPhone and find myself using the podcast app or I do utilize the apps from various ministries to listen to sermons too (Grace to You and Truth for Life are on my frequently listened to list). I have simple headphones to use when I’m moving around but most times you’ll find me connecting my phone to a bluetooth speaker and just moving it around the house to whatever room I’m working in. In the car I can connect to my bluetooth to have the audio go through my speakers but because of my low technyness 😉 – I usually just turn the volume up on my phone and set it in my cupholder (great amplification!). Sometimes you can connect to your cars stereo system with a simple audio cable too.
I do make sure to plan ahead when traveling and especially if I’m not going to have wi-fi to download episodes or sermons I want to listen to on my phone while connected to wi-fi.
I do not listen in every day to each one of those below and many of them are only updated weekly so it makes it a bit easier to keep up.
Wife, Mother, Homemaking Focused Apps:
A top favorite as of recent has been the Unspeakable Podcast. Hosts Kim, Kimberly and Brandi make it feel like I’m sitting and having coffee with three great friends discussing God’s Word together. They used to work together at Women’s Hope Podcast (there’s some great episodes in their archives) and you can catch my episode with them here.
Sermons and Teaching:
I’ve been taking online discipleship training with Rick Thomas so his two podcasts are on the top of my list to listen to and I know you will learn and grow much from both of them. Your Daily Drive and Life Over Coffee with Rick.
Jen Wilkin has many of her Bible studies online for free to listen to the sessions and download the notes for free too. I highly recommend her study on James. These are great to do alone or with a small group too.
Wretched Radio is top on my list to try to get to daily when I can. It is a one hour jam packed podcast and there is a free link in the top right hand side of the website to listen to it continually from the day’s podcast but I it is a ministry I love supporting so I do pay to receive the daily podcast and all the other benefits that you can find more about here.
My other daily worldview podcast is The Briefing by Albert Mohler. This is great for adults but also so good for your teens to listen to. I try to catch this one every day.
Here they are in list form:
