Must-Listen To Podcasts for Moms + Homemakers

10 podcasts made with mamas in mind #Momlife #podcasts

In an effort to try and watch less tv, I started seriously searching for awesome podcasts to listen to. I hate quiet, my mind starts racing and getting anxious if there’s not something on in the background to distract it while I work on the more mundane chores and projects, and tv shows are usually my go-to for distraction. But in order to really live out my life intention statements, watching less tv was going to be vital. Instead of listening to tv shows that do nothing for me, I decided to try listening to podcasts which would enrich my mind more than tv shows.

I tried out dozens and dozens of podcasts before finding ones that I truly love listening to. I listen to podcasts on lots of different topics but for this post I just want to highlight the podcasts that I believe are truly beneficial to moms and homemakers.

Honestly, this is my favorite podcast. Listening to Allie’s podcast is like having a chat with your best friend. She’s relatable and encouraging and funny and it’s seriously just the best! She alternates between interviews and just herself and both formats are awesome. Seriously life changing stuff going on over there.

I didn’t think I was going to be a big fan of this podcast when I first sat down to listen to it but I was instantly hooked. There’s something so soothing about Sally, whether it’s her voice or her wisdom, I don’t know but she makes you feel cozy, like you’re sitting across from her as she pours wisdom and encouragement into your soul. Just listen, I promise you’ll walk away inspired and refreshed. She also writes beautiful and encouraging and practical books for homemakers ([affiliate link] my favorite is The Life-Giving Home)

The Homemaking Foundations Podcast

Jami Balmet is the host of this encouraging podcast mamas and homemakers. I’m a subscriber to Jami’s blog’s newsletter and a few months ago she sent out a newsletter asking who was interested in getting email specifically about blogging. I of course said yes and I also jumped into your Facebook group for Christian bloggers. Jami is so insanely sweet and generous and a rockstar mama! She has two sets of twin boys and just a few weeks ago had baby #5, a girl, and is continuing to rock her blog and online businesses, where she and her husband both work full time. Her podcast is just as genuine and encouraging as Jami is in her blog posts and Facebook chats, I promise you will love listening to her!

A Mom’s Mission Field

This is another podcast that is just so encouraging to moms, it doesn’t make you feel bad because you don’t do something but rather it simply inspires you to be a better mom. Host Tiffany Castleberry interviews inspiring fellow moms about faith and about motherhood and parenting and it’s another one of those podcasts for moms that is just sweet and uplifting.

Well known author and blogger Tsh Oxenreider is the host of this motivating and refreshing podcast about living life more intentionally and living slow. She keeps things light and fun as she interviews guests on a variety of topics, from travel (she’s lived all over the world!) to simple living, home atmosphere to community. I recently read Tsh’s book Notes from a Blue Bike and not only did it inspire me to make some changes, I totally fell in love with Tsh’s writing style. Her podcast is just like her writing style and her personality, relatable, pleasant, and genuine.

God Centered Mom Podcast

This podcast reminds me a bit of Cultivating the Lovely or A Mom’s Mission Field, it’s a faith-based podcast made specifically for mamas. Heather interviews inspiring women like Sally Clarkson, Shauna Niequist, and others on topics that all moms can relate to. There are a lot of episodes related to parenting and many on that moms can apply to their own lives (like mom friends or if you are an angry mom).

I also have to say that it is a very well produced podcast, the sound quality is great and they edit it really well…when you’re married to an IT Director those kinds of things always stick out to you. Haha Lara is also an awesome gardener and she talks about it often on the podcast…she also uses gardens and plant analogies often in her brand.
