If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’m a podcast junkie. I listen to at least one, if not two per day; and I take notes on a lot of them. It’s my dream to have my own podcast one day. Maybe 2019 will be the year I start one. I’m praying about it. Until then, I’ll keep listening and doing the occasional podcast interview (here, here, here and here) myself.
Today, I’m sharing the podcasts I listen to regularly as well as my top 10 favorite podcast episodes of 2018. If you’re not a regular podcast listener, that’s ok, we can still be friends; but if you don’t take a listen to THESE podcasts, I may reconsider our friendship.
1.) Chai Talk Podcast- My friend Jennifer Padilla- Burger is a licensed MFT and shares tangible ways to improve your mental and emotional health and live more intentionally. I honestly have a hard time picking my favorite episode.
2.) The Next Right Thing with Emily P. Freeman- This is another podcast that I have a hard time picking a favorite, but I’m pretty sure Emily’s “Start Before You’re Ready” episode and her episode on looking back are my two favorites.
3.) Pastor James MacDonald podcasts on prayer from 12/6-12/14 have renewed my desire and focus on prayer over the last few weeks.
4.) That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs- Remember God. This is my second favorite podcast of 2018.
5.) That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs- Melissa Radke on remembering the goodness of God.
6.) The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey- Michelle Mckinney on marrying for love and purpose.
7.) The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey- Marshawn Evans Daniels on being bold and believing bigger.
8.) The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey- Ruth Chou Simons on intentional parenting and marriage, teaching culture to children, and how to decide what to post on Instagram. This is my absolute favorite podcast of 2018.
8.) Confessions of a Crappy Christian Podcast- Jeanette Tapley on Community Over Competition
9.) It’s Time for Coffee- Sabrina Sandberg of Peace at Heart Parenting
10.) At Home With Sally- Motherhood: Beautiful by Design
11.) The Fearless Chase- Blake Guichet on working from a place of more heart, less hustle.
