I enjoy listening to podcasts. I like to listen to them especially when folding laundry, on a walk, cooking, showering, driving, and many other times. I have learned a lot from podcasts.
Here are 5 of my favorite podcast shows, and I hope you might check them out. I am not just highlighting the show, I am actually going to put a link to one of my favorite shows from the podcast so you can have a place to start! Enjoy!
Revelation Wellness by Alisa Keeton
I love Revelation Wellness! It is a ministry that uses fitness as a tool to share the Gospel. These podcasts are grounded in the Word. There is a variety of types--some are general teaching. There is a "Be Still and Be Loved" that walks you through breathing, mindfulness (that thinks on truth), and being still before the Lord. My favorites are "Reving the Word" podcasts where Alisa Keeton teaches you and challenges you through a portion of scripture as she also workouts with you and sometimes leads you in intervals and challenges. This particular podcast is a "Reving the Word,"an endurance one, so go on a walk or run and turn it on! This First Responder One is so good as it challenges us to think through how to have godly and right responses to many things thrown our way instead of quick reactions.
Ask Pastor John
I love the "Ask Pastor John" podcasts because they are short nuggets where John Piper talks through and discusses issues people have asked about. This particular one he is sharing some of his personal resolves. I have listened to this one over and over a few times--very good principles.
The Gospel Coalition
The Gospel Coalition produces so many podcasts on a wide variety of topics. There is always something good that encourages me and grows me in knowledge and in applying the Word to my life. This particular podcast is very practical in challenging us as parents in how we might live and teach our kids and be examples for them in living intentionally and sharing life and the Gospel with others.
Made for This Podcast by Jennie Allen
Earlier this year I went through two of Jennie Allen's books, and they rocked my world in the best way--helping me to focus and think through some ways I want to live on purpose. When she came out with a podcast, I was so pumped! I have recently been making it a goal of mine to be unoffendable, and this podcast boosts that tremendously. I am always so encouraged and challenged in my walk of faith by Jennie!
Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey
A few years back when I first started getting into podcasts, Jamie Ivey was one of the first ones I started listening to on a regular basis. She interviews different women and just chats with them about life, books, different issues. I love almost every show, and am usually even delightfully surprised at how much I like some of the ones I am not that excited about at first glance. This particular show, she interviews an Indian lady, and Shruthi's testimony was so interesting to me. I especially was encouraged at how Shruthi came to faith, as an Indian living in the US. I wish so many people would listen to her story and hear how influential the people that shared truth with Shruthi were and what it meant to her and later on her family. It is not hard!
Bonus from the Happy Hour is Alisa Keeton
This is a second episode from the Happy Hour--I am forever grateful because one day in January 2018 as I pushed play and listened to Jamie Ivey interview Alisa Keeton...I had no idea how much that one podcast would change my life. This is where I was introduced to Revelation Wellness. So, go listen to this if you want to be introduced to that ministry and the founder, Alisa Keeton.
