Go ahead, run to the comments section and add your favs. We’re eagerly waiting. 😉

Facebook friends and family recently chimed in with their favorite podcasts when I asked something to the tune of, “Hey, what’s your favorite podcast?”

They offered MANY wonderful suggestions. (Great group of people!) I had fun popping in and listening to an episode or two of several of their suggestions.

Other Christian Reading Suggestions

Perhaps there’s one or two that’ll grab you, too.

This summer, while you’re walking, laying on a beach towel, driving, or simply resting on the sofa, grab a good podcast and enjoy!

These are…

My Top Christian Podcast Listens

The Verb

Heather Holleman dives into the loving depths of God and His Word. This English professor also adores vivid verbs. Her two loves–an amazing God and crazy good verbs–collide in a fantastic way with these short, 5-minute podcasts.

Length: 5 mins.
Frequency: This is a new podcast. Postings are a little sporadic right now but it appears there will be at least 2/month.

More Than Small Talk

Suzie Eller, Holley Gerth, and Jennifer Watson gather weekly to discuss life issues and how they intersect with us and faith.

Length: 20-25 mins.
Frequency: Weekly

Jesus Above Everything

I love Lisa’s desire for “just Jesus”. She focuses on One, and it can’t help but rub off on listeners. Some sessions are quick 5 min. devos while others are interviews. Take a listen and see if you enjoy it. (Thanks, Betsy, for this recommendation!)

Length: 5-25 mins.
Frequency: M-F mostly

Joyce Meyer

If I had to choose (1) male and (1) female Christian speaker/writer to learn from, John Bevere and Joyce Meyer would be those two. The Holy Spirit counsel within their writing pulls me straight in.

The Lord used Joyce’s radio and television shows to disciple me in earlier years. Now, we can listen to those broadcasts on her podcast as well. I’ve linked her webpage above, but type in “Joyce Meyer Podcast” into the podcast app browser and several options should appear.

Length: Varies
Frequency: Varies

John Bevere on ThriveTimeShow

It just so happens John Bevere hit the ThriveTimeShow airwaves around the same time as a fellow church-goer encouraged me to listen to ThriveTimeShow for business purposes. As soon as I noticed John’s name listed, you betcha I hit “play”!

For writers, this session with John is a must-listen. Soooo good.
Length: 20 mins.
Frequency: 1 episode

    1. The suggestions from friends and family proved valuable and exposed me to many new ones, too. Several folks like Emily’s podcast, but I don’t think I’ve listened yet to That’s So Fun. It’s on the list! Thanks, Lisa!

    1. Folks seem to be honing in on the time factor. Guess that’s important one to many of us, Liz. Thanks for stopping by…and for the the “vacation” wishes.

  1. Podcasts are a great way to stay connected to the word each day! I sometimes listed to different ones as I’m on my morning walk with the dogs or even while doing housework. It is hard for me to stay focused when reading so podcasts are perfect for me to get my daily spiritual feeding!

  2. Thanks for this. I’m fairly new to podcasts so most are new to me, although some of the people and organizations I’ve heard of. I look forward to checking them out!
