Podcasts are my thing right now! I discovered these wonderful treasures when we lived in Texas. I had quite the commute to work each day and I knew I wanted to use the time to grow. I thought about buying audiobooks, but then I discovered how great podcasts were and they were free. I found encouragement, laughter, challenges, growing opportunities, and entertainment just by pressing play. There are two areas that I have found myself listening to podcasts within: business/entrepreneur podcasts and Christian women encouraging and equipping others. Right now, I have four favorite Christian podcasts for women.
I feel the need to share my favorite podcasts by some really amazing Christian women who are out there changing the world! Here are my current four favorite podcasts:
The Glorious in the Mundane with Christy Nockels
This woman blesses my heart with every word that comes out of her mouth! I love listening to Christy for so many reasons. First off, her voice is so soothing and the wisdom that comes with it is just the icing on the cake! She is very insightful and obviously plans well for her podcasts. I have enjoyed the guests she has had on her show as well as the shows she just shares her heart! She is transparent and open about her life and what God is teaching her. Definitely a must listen for me! I’m always checking to see if she has a new episode up. This was the first podcast I got into and I binge listened to all her shows as quickly as I could.
Girls Night with Stephanie May Wilson
Speaking of women I adore, Stephanie May Wilson is a treasure! Her podcast is centered around topics that you would talk about with your girlfriends on a girls’ night! Her and her guests let us in on what their girls’ night would look like. She has covered so many topics that really impact young women. I find myself laughing, wiping tears, and nodding along as I listen to her shows. This is another one I just tore through as I was first getting into podcasts. With a 45 minute drive to and from work, I got in a lot of podcast last year!
The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey
Jamie Ivey is so great! I actually started following her on Instagram first. One day I saw here instastory about a podcast guest and I went right over to check it out. I wasn’t disappointed! She has had some really great guests! I’m still trying to catch up on all the previous episodes, because there are a lot of them, 189 to be exact. She had a recent one with Courtney Wetzel that I really enjoyed! I got so much out of that one and am planning to re-listen to it when I am able to digest it more. I was running the first time around and I tend to miss bits when I do that. This is definitely a must download podcast!
That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs
First off, just the name of Annie’s podcast makes me smile! I am working my way through Annie’s book, “100 Days to Brave” and I’m just letting this book propel me to a braver version of myself. I have only listened to a handful of her podcasts as well since it was a recent discovery. So far, I have loved what I’ve heard! She recently added her show with Bob Goff, who I love! I have the show downloaded and now I just need some time to listen to it! This is definitely another podcast I know I will work my way through all the old episodes and take in all the goodness I can!
