I love podcasts. I listen to them when I’m running and cleaning which actually helps me look forward to doing both those activities especially because I’m not any good at running and who wants to always be cleaning? With 4 little kids, it seems that’s most my day right now – clean, laundry, sweep, clean, repeat. But I have confidence that one day my kids will be able to throw their applesauce packet in the trash and not leave it on the carpet. And that one day they’ll manage to eat their meal without dumping half of it on the floor. Someday…
Anyway, back to podcasts. I love listening to things that are both educational and uplifting. I especially love it because I get to learn and as a stay at home mom, I love having the opportunity to enrich my mind. And I almost feel like I’m having an adult conversation while still being surrounded by toddlers. I’ve been listening to podcasts for about 2 years and have found some favorites. Most of my favorites are by Mormons. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the topics are about Mormons or that they interview only Mormons, but I love that I know that the episodes will be clean and in line with what I believe. My podcast time is limited so I want the ones I listen to to be worthwhile and Mormon podcasts are among my favorites.
So here are my favorite podcasts by Mormons. And if you have others that you love, make sure to let me know in the comments!
Parenting in Real Life
Ok I have to start with our podcast because I think it’s great! Parenting in Real life is a place for parents to come and learn to be a better parent, but without taking yourself too seriously. Whether you’re a new parent or have a few years under your belt, we hope we can give you something new to think about. We research topics and let you know what the professionals and researchers say and pair it with our real life parenting experiences with our 4 kids. You can listen to the episodes here on my blog or wherever you listen to podcasts.
Mormon Mompreneur Podcast
I recently started listening to this one and absolutely love it! Each week a Mormon mom entrepreneur is interviewed and shares her story. Her story of being a mom, how she started her business, what life is like, and how God has been apart of her business. It’s so encouraging!
Extraordinary Moms Podcast
Every week, Jessica interviews a mom. And these moms are from all different walks of life and chances are, one of these moms is like you. So you can either relate with the mom being interviewed or hear a brand new perspective on motherhood from a mom who has different circumstances than you. It’s so interesting to hear the stories of each of these women and find out what makes them extraordinary.
Power of Moms Radio
I’ve been listening to this one the longest and there are so many great tips every week from April and Saren who run the Power of Moms website. They have such a vast knowledge from their own lives and the lives of the women they work with. And I love that they address moms of children of all ages since we’re all in different stages. You can tell both moms are working to improve their family life and I love how they share what they find. I always learn something new from them.
The LifeBeats Project with Briana Johnson
Briana interviews someone new each week who has found the good within themselves. Often they have overcome trials, grew from them and can now share their stories with others. She hopes you are inspired as you go through your trials and hardships in life as well.
Vibrant Happy Women with Jen Riday
This is a podcast I just found and I learned that Jen lives near me in Wisconsin! So that was a fun connection. I have loved listening to her episodes about helping women live happy lives. She has great tips as well as interviews other women who have made changes in their lives so that they’re enjoying it rather than just living it day to day. I especially loved her episode with Beth Kempton.
I also just started listening to this podcast and have loved what I heard. Every Branch is all about finding balance in life. They have great tips to help you live the life you want to live.
Mormon Channel Daily
These are just quick little tips and thoughts each day from the Mormon Channel. They also talk about the new campaigns and movies coming out so you’re always in the know about what’s going on in social media for the church. It’s an uplifting message to hear each day.
The Marvelous Moms Club Podcast with Kirsten Tyrrel
I just started listening to this one although it’s been around for a while. Also great interviews with women and I think most of them are mompreneurs which is right up my alley. I love listening to what these women have to share!
Ok so there you go. Those are my favorite Mormon podcasts. Who am I missing? What Mormon podcasts do you love to listen to? I would love to add them to my feed!
