So if I could see a show of hands, who listens to podcasts? I am loving many of them right now and usually listen while I’m in the shower, driving, at home cleaning, exercising, or right before bed. So much information packed inside of these podcasts relating to life, motherhood, Jesus, business, travel, marriage, children, and tons of inspiration.
I want to share with you whats on my list in hopes that I can inspire you to start listening as well. Podcasts are a great way to learn information in a short period of time especially when you don’t have time to read or for many, just don’t enjoy reading.
- Hello Mornings- Hosted by Kat Lee and Heather MacFadyen- I like to start my days off listening to this podcast because its fresh, light, and helps with morning routine. Ah, hello who doesn’t need help with that? Right now they are discussing Morning study of the Parables of Christ. Each podcast is only 5-6 minutes long and discusses parables, bible verses to refer to, questions to ponder, and actionable steps we can take. If you want to get closer to Jesus and don’t where to start, love the Bible but don’t know what to read, this is a great beginning. Each week, just try to increase your time alone with Jesus and make it personal and yours.
- Build Your Tribe- Hosted by Charlene Johnson-I took Chalene’s Online Marketing Impact Academy class last year and it made a huge difference in the way I started my business and now run my business. Marketing, emails, time management, social media, domain names, websites, and so much more knowledge I gained. I can’t say enough about her and her team. She is wonderful. If you own a business, want to start a business, or are curious about what she does (besides teach Pyo and other nutritional/motivational/fitness videos) check out her podcasts. I promise she is worth every minute.
- The Simple Show- Hosted by Tsh Oxenreider- She discusses books, home, travel, and more. She has a few co-hosts and they also discuss summer reading, food questions, how to find cheap tickets, staple wardrobe pieces, and in case you haven’t heard about Tsh’s book, At Home In The World, its a must read. Her and her husband along with their 3 children traveled the globe for a year and she talks about everything from where they went, where they slept, how they organized their backpacks, survived without internet, airports and traveling with small children, and also lets us the listener in on a few places they lived and what it was like. This podcast is fun, entertaining, and very interesting for a person who loves to travel and may or may not quite be ready. She explains how you don’t have to wait until your children are grown and gone before you take the leap.
- The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey- Hosted by Jamie Ivey- Now this one is a favorite of mine and I’ve been listening to this one about 6 months. She has some pretty amazing women on her podcast. Its an all ladies podcast and the only man allowed on there, which she has interviewed him, is her husband. She’s has sol0-preneur moms, mothers who own multiple business, foster mothers, single women, christian ladies, speakers, authors, pastors wives, widows, and just good hearted women who want to help others with their stories and journeys. Some of her guests have been Angie Smith, Bianca Olthoff, Ali Worthington, Lauren Kennedy, Lisa-Jo Baker, Tsh Oxenreider, Lisa Bevere, and Emily Ley to name a very few. Each week I look forward to listening to Jamie’s podcast as she is funny, serious, makes me think, cry, reflect, and relate. This podcast is one I always recommend to women of all walks of life. She makes me feel as if we were right there together drinking a cup of coffee with a few girlfriends speaking on small things, big things, and everything in between. A must listen!
There ya have it. My top list of podcasts. I have a few others on my list of possibilities-if-I-have-a-little -more-time-I-would-love-to-listen-to-podcasts, but I can’t listen to too many at once because I will get distracted. But let me tell you, podcasting is my new favorite way to learn, listen, and enjoy.
Leave me your feedback and let me know what you think of these if you happen to check these out. AND, I would love recommendations on what YOU are listening to right now.
Blessings sister and Happy listening,
