10 Best Christian Podcasts for Women Pop Quiz Time.

When it comes to growing in faith, what would you say is the BIGGEST obstacle holding Christian women back today? 

a. Making time for God

b. Overcoming past sin and shame

c. Learning how to read the Bible

d. Figuring out how to trust in the Lord


Answer: While each of these factors definitely play a role… For many of us, it’s the lack of time (answer a) that’s hurting us the most.

We’re SO busy working, taking care of our families, taking care of our homes, trying to be the perfect Proverbs 31 woman… that we simply don’t have the time, energy, or motivation left over to do anything else — much less learn how to study the Bible and grow in our faith!


That’s the bad news.

Now — are you ready for the good news?¬†

I found an awesome solution that I think is REALLY going to help. Not only will it challenge you and inspire you to truly grow in your faith, BUT it doesn’t add ANY more time to your day!

The answer: Listening to women of faith podcasts!

Why I Love Listening to Christian Podcasts for Women


Now, I know, Christian podcasts for women aren’t exactly a brand new phenomenon. Women of faith podcasts have been around for years.

BUT I do feel like they’ve really exploded in popularity lately, with new Christian marriage podcasts and Christian parenting podcasts popping up all the time.

Personally, I just started to listen to the best Christian podcasts for women of faith myself — around the time I launched my own Equipping Godly Women podcast — and I’m so glad I did!


Here’s why:

  • Women of faith podcasts are a great way to fill your mind with Christian thoughts, Scripture and ideas all week long (not just on Sundays!)
  • The best Christian podcasts for women are seriously good! They’re challenging, encouraging, thought-provoking, entertaining and so much more.
  • Christian podcasts provide really great perspective and advice on the real issues Christian women deal with every single day (but can’t always talk about).
  • (Most) Podcasts are free! Who wants to throw away money if they don’t have to? Not me! Another reason why I am excited to share these best Christian women podcasts!


And the thing I love most of all: Podcastss don’t really take up any time!

While I definitely love reading my favorite blogs by Christian women, they really aren’t made for multi-tasking. If I’m reading a website, I’m probably not doing much else at the same time.

Podcasts, on the other hand, are absolutely perfect for multi-tasking.

So you don’t have to figure out when you’ll have time to listen to them… you just listen in while you’re¬†doing dishes, folding laundry, taking the dog for a walk, driving around in the car… or any other boring activity that takes up a lot of your time but not a lot of your attention.

risen motherhood podcast


2. Risen Motherhood with Emily Jensen and Laura Wifler


In researching the best Christian podcasts for women of faith, this podcast popped up time and time again. The Risen Motherhood podcast is a popular choice for Christian moms looking for “gospel-hope” and fresh perspective in what can feel like the trenches of motherhood.

From issues such as potty training, nap times, disciplining your children, and even recovering from childhood abuse, Emily Jensen and Laura Wifler show how the gospel really does affect every area of our lives, and how it can help you as a young mother as well.

They remind listeners that when life gets hard (as it often does!) and you feel like you can’t go on, you can always turn to the gospel for hope and help.¬†This is one of the many reasons I chose Risen Motherhood in my top Christian podcasts for women.

Their tone may be casual and low-key, but don’t be mistaken. These short (15-20 minute) podcasts are jam-packed with much-needed reminders and plenty of Spiritual truth. If you’re looking for Christian parenting podcasts for moms of littles — this is it.

4. That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs


I MUST include Annie F. Downs in my choice of best Christian podcasts for women.

I actually got to hear Annie F. Downs speak at a Christian conference I attended a few years ago, and let me tell you, she does not disappoint — whether on the stage or behind a microphone.¬†With her contagious laughter and ability to make friends wherever she goes, Annie F. Downs’ podcast, That Sounds Fun, totally lives up to its name.

An interview-style podcast with TONS of Christian “celebrities” ranging from¬†comedians to non-profit CEOs to NFL FOOTBALL PLAYERS (Tim Tebow anyone?), That Sounds Fun will infuse your day with Christian truths that are delivered with heart and wit.

Her show feels like sitting down to coffee with a good friend, and her ability to weave deep conversations is an art. Plus, as a committed Christian CEO, author, and single woman with no kids, her podcast is a great choice for ambitious Christian women who may want something less exclusively family-oriented than the typical Christian parenting podcasts or Christian marriage podcasts out there.

After Jami Balmet’s website (Young Wife’s Guide) earned a top spot in my article 10 Awesome Websites for Christian Women, it should come as no surprise that she ranks among my top Christian podcasts for women of faith as well.

Through a series of interviews and by sharing her own tips, Jami’s Christian women podcast equips listeners to craft a Gospel-centered home by exploring various areas of Christian homemaking including Biblical womanhood, cooking, organizing, healthy living, marriage, and more.

With a goal of helping other women bring glory to God every day in their homes and help encourage and equip them to serve with joy and diligence, this podcast is full of biblical encouragement as well as practical ideas and tips.

  1. Thanks for the great list of podcasts!! Is there any for women over 50, divorced , 4 adult kids? I’m dipping my toes into the podcast pool!!

  2. I’m trying to find a podcast that got deleted from my phone. I think her first name is “Jen”? She’s from Texas and I was starting to listen to her Judges study. I can’t find it anywhere? Any thots?

  3. I am looking for a great Christian podcast for women who have married later in life (almost 40) and do not have any children. Almost all of these include parenting which is not something to which I can really. Any recommendations?

  4. I would totally recommend another great podcast for Christian women – Stripped Whole, by Simcha Natan.

    I have found them real and gritty – challenging me to push further into God in the hardest of seasons, while rooted in stories from Scripture, weaving together inspiring songs as well… worth a listen!
