Roundup of Podcasts Hosted by Christian Women

Podcast List for Christian Women

Since becoming the host of my own podcast, I've discovered so many other podcasts by Christian women. Naturally, I've wanted to connect with women of faith who are doing what I'm doing.

However, even with Google's help, I've had trouble finding a comprehensive list of podcasts hosted by Christian women. There are lists of sermon-style podcasts from dozens of churches and Bible teaching podcasts by women and men alike. But since The Devoted Dreamers Podcast is more of a lifestyle, Christian-living or even "inspiration for Christians" podcast, those are the type of hosts I've been in search of.

A quick check on iTunes turned up The Happy Hour by Jamie Ivey, of course! And I could see what other podcasts her listeners also listen to. Even a more recent Pinterest search only provided a handful of lists like "7 Must-Listen Podcast Episodes for Christian Women" or "15 Awesome Christian Podcasts" but nowhere could I find a more comprehensive list. So I decided to create my own.

I say that, but you must know, this is by no means a complete list. Podcasts hosted by Christian women are popping up all over the place these days. Every month it seems. So it would be impossible to know about them all. 

There's more information near the end of this post if you're curious how I came up with this list. Once it began to take shape, I started reaching out to hosts that had contact information easily accessible online to ask them for a few episodes I might link to (most popular and best representation) to help you get started figuring out which shows are right for you. And I've done my best to categorize by topic, though I'll admit, I haven't had a chance to listen to every single show so instead of being an endorsement (it's not), consider this a compilation of shows you might give a listen to if you're looking for more in one of these categories.

Again, this is not a complete list. It was compiled based on my own research and posts to a few Facebook groups asking Christian women to share their favorite shows. Several were recommended more than once, but in total there were more than 60 to start with! Still, I'm sure there are many other amazing podcasts hosted by Christian women that I don't know about.

If you have a favorite you'd like to share--or you're the host of a podcast--please submit it via this Google Form.

For shows that didn't have contact information or the host didn't respond to my initial request, I'm including them here anyway, without links to their shows, with the hope that I can add their links in the future. 

I'd love to hear which of these shows you check out. Please leave your thoughts here, in the comments, so others who discover this list will benefit from your listening.
