12 Mar Top 10 Podcasts for Christian Moms
Today, we’re chatting about my top 10 favorite podcasts for Christian moms. These are some gems that really helped me to grow in my relationship with the Lord and grow as a mom.
Podcasts Were Made For the Busy Mom
Podcasts were made with moms in mind. If anybody needs the ability to multitask when they work it’s a mom.
This is the exact reason I started The Graceful Life Podcast. I wanted to share encouragement and wisdom with other Christian women in a format that was easy to take in!
If you haven’t subscribed, what are you waiting for! You can get faith-building and practical encouragement on the go!
I enjoy listening to different podcasts, but it took a bit to find some good ones, so I wanted to save you some time and share my top 10 with you.

If you don’t want to go backward, you have to continue pushing forward. If you’re not moving forward in your life, in your motherhood, in your spiritual walk, then you are falling backward.
So how do you push forward? By filling your mind with God’s Word and
When you value
The fact that you’re here is a testament that you’re growing as a person and maturing as a daughter of the King.
The God-Centered Mom Podcast with Heather McFadden
She is a super funny mom of four boys. The common theme is living a life that is God-centered. She’s super down to earth and she shares her struggles with being a Christian mom.
I truly believe that whenever we’re vulnerable, that’s whenever we start impacting other people. She has definitely taken this and used it for God’s glory.
At Home With Sally by Sally Clarkson
Sally is a mother of four, author, and a public speaker. Her and her co-host, Kristen Kill, talk about different aspects of motherhood.
One of the things that I love about their podcast is they talk about life giving homes. We really want our homes to be a place of life and joy. They show you how to bring beauty into every day of motherhood.
Sally’s children are grown so you’re getting the benefit of hearing the perspective of someone who’s raised children through to adulthood.
Risen Motherhood: Co-hosted by Emily Jensen and Laura Wifler
These women are both moms of littles. They discuss everyday issues in motherhood: breastfeeding moms, advice, family devotions, mom guilt, and even aspects of marriage.
Another plus is that each episode is really short.
I enjoy listening to podcasts that are about 15 to 20 minutes. They are easy for busy moms to listen to. I love this podcast and I know that you will, too.
A Mom Struggling Hosted by Emily Thomas
Emily has a great sense of humor and is super down to earth. I mean, just look at the title of her podcast. How many moms want to admit that they’re struggling? But she embraces vulnerability and lets it help other moms.
When you listen to this podcast, it feels like you’re sitting down and chatting with a friend.
You are going to hear all kinds of topics including loss, restoring broken marriages, contentment, protecting your children, and discipline.
Kat Lee’s Inspired To Action
She has interviewed some great guests in the past including Beth Moore, Katie Orr, and Crystal Evans Hurst (Tony Evans’ daughter and Priscilla Shirer’s sister) just to name a few.
A plus: the production of this is super high quality. I would definitely recommend it.
The Busy Mom with Heidi St. John
I love the idea of this podcast because Heidi talks about current events not just in the church but in our culture.
She does this so that we’re able to teach our children about these issues. I know that current events can be frightening as a mom. And I personally work to limit the amount of
But it doesn’t help us to stick our heads in the sand and be uneducated about all these things that are going on in our world. We need to be aware of what they are and we need to speak to our kids about these topics.
Some of the topics covered are politics, different women’s movements around the country, the importance of sex in marriage, and what the Bible says about discipline and spanking.
She helps you to dig deep so that you can minister to your children because that’s what parenting is all about.
A lot of our training and education is for personal development. It’s learning how to be better people.
Ultimately the better we are, the better mothers we can become, and the better we can help encourage and train up our children in the way that they should go.
Questions Kids Ask hosted by Mary C. Wiley
Mary C. Wiley is a mom with a theology degree. Plus she has served as a kids pastor at two different churches and she was actually on the Gospel Projects curriculum team.
I don’t know about you, but when my kids ask, “Mom, how did God make the earth?” I want to have a place I can go that is
She talks a lot about difficult questions that kids ask and then how to address them in a way that is constructive and biblically correct.
We all have had those times when we’ve had questions from our kids, things like “Where do babies come from? How was God created? How did God create the world?”
These are all questions that kids ask and we want to be able to answer them biblically. This podcast will help you do that.
Focus on the Family
I cannot tell you all about these podcasts without mentioning Focus On The Family.
Focus On The Family originated on the radio (and still broadcasts there). Unlike the other podcasts on this list, this one is hosted by two men. They usually have special guests on a range of topics.
One reason they’re on this list is because they talk about marriage and parenting a lot.
One of the episodes that I heard recently was talking about raising young adults and starting when they’re adolescents. What you do when your kid is 11, 12, 13 years old is helping to prepare them for adulthood.
When we learn from other people, we can avoid some of the mistakes that they have made by paying attention to the wisdom that they have for us.
The topics are broad but focused on family. Focus on the Family also has several niche podcasts so you can base it off of the age of the kids that you’re parenting right now.
There’s a reason that it’s been around for so long. I love how focused they are on protecting God’s view of the family. I know you’re definitely going to love it.
Cultivating the Lovely hosted by McKinsey Monroe
McKinsey is all about helping women be who God calls them to be. It is meant to inspire women to live lives of intention which, if you’ve been around this blog for very long, you know I love.
You’re going to hear a lot of wisdom about creating your family culture, having a home that just breathes life into your kids and the importance of being in God’s word.
You’re going to hear about things that are going to benefit your home and your motherhood.
This is probably one of the very first podcasts I started listening to. It’s a great one.
Parenting On Purpose
Parenting on Purpose is a resource that was created by Sheridan House Family Ministries, and it’s for those who are dealing with parenting issues.
If you feel like you’re the only mom that struggles in motherhood, then this is definitely a great podcast for you. Each one is about 15 minutes, so it’s a great, quick listen.
You can browse through past episodes, too. This podcast was started back in 2009, so there is a huge list of episodes that you can listen to.
Trust me, you’re going to find so many great resources.
I want to encourage you to strive to be a lifelong learner.
I love learning new things and challenging myself and I believe that positively impacts my kids. The same is going to be true for you.
When you mature in your motherhood and in your walk with Christ, your children are going to benefit from your personal growth.
You’re going to have more confidence. You’re going to enjoy learning new things and challenging yourself, and your kids are going to see that and want to do the same!
