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 a convenient way to get 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.Podcasts are a convenient way to get teaching and encouragement that fits into your schedule.
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 techiness 😉 – I usually just turn the volume up on my phone and set it in my cupholder (great amplification!). Sometimes you can connect to your car 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.
*Also please note I don't always agree theologically with everything that is shared in each of the podcasts listed. Always listen with discernment.
Wife, Mother, Homemaking Focused Podcasts:
A top favorite is Women's Hope Podcast. They are on a bit of a hiatus but looking forward to when they start back up again. You can catch up with the previously recorded podcasts until then.
A Word Fitly Spoken is a biblical issues podcast for women.
At Home with Sally Clarkson and Friends is such an encouraging podcast for Mama's to listen to.
A new one for me is Risen Motherhood and I'm loving it so check it out if you haven't yet. The ladies are Gospel-centered and I think you will be encouraged.
The Lazy Genius is great for quick tips in all different areas of home and family.
Thankful Homemaker podcast I'm hoping is on your list too. If you haven't checked it out yet take a listen as my hope is to be an encouragement in the role God has called us to as Christian women.
Read Aloud Revival – One as a grandmother I appreciate for finding good books to buy and read to my grandkiddos.
Sermons and Teaching:
Behold Your God podcast produces content with a desire for the glory of God and the good of His church. Listen in and you will be encouraged.
Wretched Radio is top on my list to try to get to daily when I can and it's usually my go-to when cooking dinner. It is a one-hour jam-packed podcast.
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.
The Just Thinking Podcast with hosts Darrell and Virgil is one to not miss on cultivating a Christian Worldview.
Some Others on My List:
The BAR Podcast – BAR stands for Biblical and Reformed and Dawain has a great list of guests he interviews each week.
Here they are in list form: (you can also find them with a quick search in whatever podcast catcher app you use.)
