Do you enjoy listening to podcasts? Podcasts continue to grow in popularity and I am often asked to recommend some great podcasts for Christian women. But, I have a secret for you: I don’t listen to podcasts. What? I know. I know. I’m not one who can write while there is background noise (talking, TV or music), so I can’t listen while I work and find that I enjoy listening to Christian music more than I enjoy listening to talking.
So, in order to give recommendations on podcasts for Christian women, I turned to other women ministry leaders to get their thoughts. And, WOW! There are so many great Christian podcasts, it seems.
Podcasts allow you to listen to your favorite ministry leaders, writers, speakers and bloggers on topics that resonate with you.
If you love podcasts and are looking for a new podcast for Christian women or are new to them (maybe you haven’t found one that you connect with), you will find something on this list (Even me, a non-podcast listener, have added several to my list to check out!)
