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:
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 your haven't yet. The ladies are Gospel centered and I think you will be encouraged.
Journeywoman Podcast with Hunter Beless is such a great listen as Hunter interview Christian woman from all walks of life and discusses with them what it look like to glorify the Lord in all various seasons of life.
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.
Sermons and Teaching:
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 which we're working through together in the Thankful Homemaker Facebook group. These are great to do alone or with a small group too.
The Art of Godliness is a new one from Tim Challies that has been great to listen in on.
Knowing Faith with Jen Wilkin as one of the hosts explores how our faith is founded upon Scripture.
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.
