Motherhood can be exhausting, am I right? I know I’m right! I have 3 of my own, so I get it. And even if I didn’t, the internet is full of memes, reels, and jokes pointing to how tired we are. How it can be hard to care for ourselves, because we are caring for tiny humans.
I feel this exhaustion on a personal level, but something that has really helped me are podcasts. There are tons of parenting podcasts out there. And rightly so. They’re a little piece of self-care we can do while caring for everyone else. We can listen while driving, while making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, while changing a diaper…and so many Christian Parenting Podcasts are jumping to fill our ears with information of every topic. From homeschool, to gentle parenting….podcasts are a great tool for filling our minds with tips on how to parent our littles better. But sometimes it’s just too much. There are seasons where I am so tired, I don’t need to be given one more thing to do. Instead, I need a gentle reminder that it’s ok just to be. That even if I’m surrounded by babies, I am still a grown up. That I am seen, and known and loved.
Dear mama friend, if you are in such a season, this list is for you. These are my Favorite Christian Podcasts for when I’m just tired. Take a listen, and be refreshed.
A friend recommended them on her Instagram, and it took me a few months to actually give a listen, but once I was so glad I did. This podcasts is focused on shining the Gospel into the moments of motherhood. With the right balance of challenge and encouragement, it’s a breath of fresh air in the middle of the day.
I love this podcast so much, and listen on the regular. Journey with Knox, Jamie, and Erin and we explore the Bible, misconceptions we may have grown up with, and what it’s actually may be saying for our lives. This is full of humor, so doesn’t feel as weighty as some Bible Podcasts. Just what my mama soul needs.
This Bible podcast is perfect for getting a better understanding of the Bible. The episodes are short, and can be easily listened to in the car while running a quick errand. I also find it helpful that Tara warns when an unsavory bit is coming up in case I need to pause and listen when my kids are not around. After all, the Bible is not G-rated .
This is an interview podcast and from beginning to end I just feel empowered. It’s in the top-charts list on Google Play, and there is a reason why. Seriously, go listen and be encouraged to be the Mom God made you to be.
I have loved following Liturgies for Parents on Instagram and jumped at being on the launch team for Kayla’s book: To Light Their Way. So imagine my joy when I found out Kayla was starting a podcast! Each episode is short, with a piece of scripture and a benediction for the day.
I recently had this podcast recommended to me, and I just cannot stop listening. It is so good and uplifting for us mamas, pointing us to the Gospel of Christ.
