Great Christian podcasts for women and moms
I am a huge fan of listening to podcasts especially while driving or getting work done at home. I struggle finding time to read books although I have a one book a month goal currently. But it’s so much easier to listen to podcasts. If you have long commutes, podcasts are an amazing way to spend your drive time. I especially ensure my podcasts are clean and mostly Christian since I have my daughter in the car often times.
My podcast lists ranges from mostly Christian podcasts on faith, marriage and motherhood, to those on leadership, entrepreneurship, blogging, and self-care. Podcasts can be listened to while running errands, working on your laptop, washing, cooking etc. There are a ton of Christian podcasts for women available and it can be overwhelming to choose. That’s how I felt when I was getting into podcasts, but after searching and listening to a couple, I narrowed it down to a few great ones. I listen to some a lot more than others, but I am sure you will find most of them to be very impactful to your life.
Benefits of listening to podcasts
It helps you spend your time wisely.
They do not take up any extra time to listen.
For Christian podcasts, its a great way to spend some quality time with God. You get to study his word and grow in faith. I wrote a post a few months back about apps that can help your walk with God
Top Christian podcasts for women and moms
This podcast is hosted by Csilla Muscan and focuses on helping women live a life of purpose and full courage to be who God created them to be. It teaches topics like leadership, courage, healthy mindset, purpose and also uses real life examples by also featuring guest speakers.
This podcast by Jami Balmet helps to give you tools in building a Gospel centered home. She focuses on a variety of topics from marriage, biblical principles, womanhood, cooking, healthy living etc. she also interviews various women and homemakers, so you get a variety of experience to help you in this journey. I also love that it has topics regarding grumbling in the home because Hey, we all grumble once in a while, right? These episodes give so much truth and practical tips to help build a Godly home.
Heidi St. John hosts this podcast that focuses on bringing encouraging, relevant biblical truth to women. She features various guest speakers such as Priscilla Shirer whom I respect so much. It has a lot for moms, but you can learn so much from it regardless. It has topics from marriage, motherhood, raising Godly children, homeschooling.
This podcast by Leslie Ludy is for women of all ages. It focuses on pursuing Christ and how to be a Godly woman through biblical principles, purity, leadership, relationships, mentorship etc. The episodes are also quite short which I like, usually not more than twenty minutes. I love that it is for various ages, not just married or mothers especially in her episodes on purity, living space, spiritual warfare,
This is my favorite Christian podcast for women ever. It totally feels like you are having coffee (or in my case water or green tea since I don’t do coffee) with your girlfriends and gisting. Lindsey Maetas and Amaris Beecher both cohost the podcast and they talk about everything from marriage, faith, motherhood and friendships. They also invite guest speakers to speak on various topics. Their episodes are so inspiring, convicting and eye opening. I have learned so much from listening to them especially when it comes to topics on raising a Godly family and honestly checking your heart on various issues. I also love that they are very honest and open in their discussions and let you know they are not perfect and are also learning just like we all are.
They have so many amazing episodes I honestly cannot list them all. But I love how I always learn something new each time and never have to hate myself after the podcast but rather I know that with God I am more than enough.
This podcast is by Heather Macfadyen and focuses on connecting mothers to people and resources to help in this journey of life and especially to help you feel less alone as a mom. Truth be told, sometimes motherhood can get lonely and the more kids you have, the lonelier it can become. Its easier if most of your friends are married with children as well, but if most of them are not, it tends to get hard.
I think we all have one or two friends who are single and prefer we hang out with them without our kids. I get it, sometimes they want to hang out without you yelling at your kid to sit still or having to choose certain places to hangout based on your kids. Digressed a little lol, but this podcast really helps you understand that you are not alone in this journey and connects you with a community of other women.
One episode I particularly like is “thriving as an introverted mom” with Erin Morgan. I can relate as I am an introvert and its hard sometimes when I see other moms hanging out constantly in groups with other moms and kids while I really just enjoy being at home. Honestly, I love to pursue my friends and other relationships, but my mind just cannot always handle it as an introvert. But I am slowly learning that it’s okay to be this way and all I really need is a few deep friendships. I do not need to have a ton of friends or constantly be going out if I do not want to.
I just recently subscribed to this podcast by Milena and Jordan. They are a married couple and Milena vlogs on YouTube under Milena Ciciotti. They recently had a baby girl that’s so precious. Anyway, I love this couple, on her YouTube page, they often share their bible study time together and show how they do it. It’s always so informative and thorough. I love how open her husband Jordan is and how willing he is to dive into the bible and break it down. He shared an episode on the podcast about a guy’s perspective on waiting until marriage to have sex. Their podcast is for both men and women of all ages and focuses on teaching and exploring who God is through his word, family and life experiences. They constantly share their real-life experiences and involve God in all areas of it.
This is another motherhood podcast with Emily Jensen and Laura Wifler. It focuses on creating a space to share experiences and learn from others to help us navigate this journey of motherhood. As mothers, we do not always have it all together, we are all still learning and growing no matter what stage we are in. Some of the topics teach about giving ourselves grace in motherhood, discipline, trusting God with our children, living the lives we want as mothers etc. They basically teach that the gospel of Christ affects all areas of our lives and does not need to be separate from how we live our lives and raise our kids.
A podcast by Cheri Gregory and Amy Carroll that teaches women to break out of bad rules that intend on making others happy while being unfulfilled. It helps you learn to follow Jesus guidance rather than the voices of everyone else.
They deal with issues we have as women where we think we need to be perfect to be accepted by others. Christ does not expect us to be perfect but the world makes us feel like we need to be and so we leave our place of rest in Christ and struggle with ourselves.
I just started this one by Selena and Ryan Frederick and it has quickly become a favorite. They are a married couple who discuss openly and honestly all things marriage. Topics from sex, intimacy, finances, Godly marriage, kids, purpose, you name it. They also have various marriage books for husband and wife on their website.
They also have this thing they do at the end of most podcasts, I think its called a heart check. They ask three questions: what is stirring your heart right now? Like what has God been telling you recently. What is in your ears? Like what music or what have you been listening to a lot. And what is in your hands? Like What book are you reading.
Cultivating the lovely
This podcast is by Mackenzie Koppa and it is for moms who are seeking Jesus and also want to do their best to care for themselves and their families despite the busy-ness of life. I have not listened to this podcast that much but it was quite recommended.
The hope collective podcast
Another podcast i have not listened to so much by Dana Marie Arnold. It is geared towards helping you fully step into your identity in Christ. She encourages women to find hope in the least expected places and know their identities as daughters of Christ.
