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!)
Here are the top recommended podcasts for Christian women 2020:

You’re invited to hang out on Lisa Harper’s back porch and enjoy conversations about all things Jesus, theological anthropology, biblical orthodoxy, Spanx, the merits of Tex-Mex and more! We believe this podcast will help you dive deeper into God’s word, understand that the gospel is great news for everyday life, not just when viewed in the light of eternity, and that God is for us, that He’s always been in the process of redeeming our inherent value as imago Dei and restoring us into a vibrant, intimate relationship with Him. And rest assured, this won’t be a one-sided conversation because throughout the podcast, Lisa will be inviting friends, including some brilliant theologians and academics to join her in substantive but decidedly unstuffy segments.
Out of the Dark is a podcast about mental health in the body of Christ. As followers of Jesus, people are sometimes led to believe that if we struggle with anxiety, depression, addiction, identity, or the many other areas of our mental health that we are less of a Christian or are just not praying enough. As members of the body of Christ, Mandisa and Laura will tackle the idea that, while Jesus IS enough, a relationship with a counselor can help heal wounds that will enhance your relationship with Jesus. They will cover specific topics related to mental health and offer resources to listeners to enhance your journey of personal growth. We can’t do it alone; we need to step out of the dark of shame and guilt and into the light of recovery and redemption.
Through studying the Bible in Egypt and Israel Kristi learned that the Living God is BETTER than she ever knew. When the Lord gave us the Bible, He gave us a Story. It’s the best and truest Story ever told. Each story is like a pearl, beautiful and of great price on its own. But what’s more beautiful is stringing the biblical pearls together. Through the Bible, we know who the Living God is, what He’s like and what it is to walk with Him. In this teaching podcast, Kristi strings 12 of my most favorite biblical pearls together to not just read the Bible, but to interact with it, as it is living and active and so we are we. Kristi is a professor at Williamson College and serves as a biblical culturalist. She has a Masters in Christian Education from Dallas Theological Seminary and has dedicated her life to teaching people how to study the Bible.

After all — Jesus didn’t call us to be lukewarm, half-hearted followers of him. He calls us to be ALL IN! and to live a life that’s full and abundant.
And that’s what this podcast is all about.

I love the real talk by Blake of Confessions of a Crappy Christian. I mean, if we’re being real, are any of us all that perfect?
