Do you enjoy listening to podcasts? Podcasts continue to grow in popularity, and I am often asked to recommend some top Christian podcasts for 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’s 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.
Some are a weekly podcast, others daily, and still, others have no specific schedule. Listening to podcasts is a great way to dive into topics affecting Christian women while going about your day. New episodes give practical advice, Bible studies, and all refer to the Word of God as their foundation. Wonderful for covering important topics and helping you in your spiritual growth and Christian faith. Many even cover current events and how they affect our Christian worldview.
Here are some of my favorite Christian podcasts for women.

Here are the top recommended podcasts for Christian women in 2023:
Podcasts for Christian Women
GRACEOLOGIE with Gwen Smith podcast is a fun, faith-focused, grace-filled conversation to help you know and trust God more. Some recent guests have included Some of our recent guests include: Jeremy Camp, Rebekah Lyons, Anne Graham Lotz, Sheila Walsh, Jess Connolly, Ruth Chou Simons, and Bianca Olthoff. This is one of my favorite podcasts for women.
The Home and Heart podcast, by Rebekah Hargraves, is a companion to her blog, Hargraves Home and Hearth. The podcast and blog, are “all about ‘edifying, equipping, and encouraging women in their journey of Biblical womanhood’”.
Rebekah interviews guests on topics from motherhood to verse mapping and from faith to adoption.

Lisa Harper’s Back Porch Theolog
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 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 darkness 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 favorite biblical pearls together not just to 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 Master’s in Christian Education from Dallas Theological Seminary and has dedicated her life to teaching people how to study the Bible.
Rebecca St. James’ Friends & Family
Rebecca St. James is back, and not only in the studio working on fresh, modern worship music, but she also has a NEW podcast to encourage you in daily life! Through authentic sharing with friends and family- tackling subjects such as faith, parenting, romantic relationships, and other areas of life – she reminds listeners they’re not alone, and that we have wisdom for life in Jesus! A faith-based podcast with a fresh perspective!
If you’re a Christian woman who wants to grow in faith and family, you’re in the right place!
In this podcast, we dive deep into what it really means to be a committed follower of Christ, practical strategies for living out our faith as Christian women in today’s busy world, and so much more.
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.

Confessions of a Crappy Christian
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? Blake says, “The heart of the show is to talk about our weaknesses and the things we’re really great at in order to point people back to Christ and the kingdom.” She is funny, quirky and discusses topics that are on the minds of many Christian women.

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!

I just wanted to say hello! I stumbled upon your page recently and it appears this is from 2019? If so I would LOVE to add a new suggestion to a podcast that is just 1.5 years old!
I noticed almost all of your podcast recommendations were the same guests featured on Graceologie podcast, the Podcast host I work for, Gwen Smith with the Graceologie Podcast! So yes I mean be a little bias since I work for her but I was a fan before I joined the team! :)
I just wanted to see if you’ve ever checked it out and if not, maybe this would be one you’d love to recommend to your readers as well! I think you would love it. It seems like there are many similarities in all these awesome women! I know we are all trying to support each other and grow God's Kingdom together!
