I spend approximately forty to fifty minutes everyday in the car. I’m driving to the office, I’m picking up kids, and I’m out running errands. I’ve become obsessed with the idea that I can learn something while I’m driving! What better use of time in the car, then to do some laughing, learning, and self-reflection. I’ve reviewed three of my top fav podcasts below. I encourage you all to check out one of these podcasts next time you find yourself sitting in traffic or the school pick up line. Tune in and recharge! I bet you will find yourself encouraged and inspired.
1. The Next Right Thing with Emily P. Freeman. This podcast is my go-to every morning. For second-guessers, the chronically hesitant, or anyone who suffers from decision fatigue, best-selling author and host Emily P. Freeman helps create a little space for your soul to breathe so you can discern your next right thing in love. Because out of the thousands of decisions you make everyday, chances are a few of them threaten to keep you up at night. If you’re in a season of transition, waiting, general fogginess or if you’ve ever searched “how to make a decision” on the internet, listen in. Each episode is 15-20 minutes long. Short, sweet, and encouraging!
2. For the Love! with Jen Hatmaker. For the love of … People. Home. Stories. Shoes. Family. Jesus. Community. TV. Accessories. Food. Culture. The New York Times best-selling author and star of HGTV’s “My Big Family Renovation,” invites you to drop by and catch up with her friends as they laugh and share about all the things we love. Jen Hatmaker keeps it real, and keeps me laughing. I love the guests she has on the show, many are authors of the books I end up reading next, or the entrepreneurs I now follow. She has seasonal themes for her podcasts, such as For the Love of People. For the Love of Women Who Built It. For the Love of Laughter. Her guests will inspire you!
3. Going Scared Podcast with Jessica Honnegger. In case you haven’t heard of Jessica, she is the Founder and co-CEO of Noonday Collection jewelry (jewelry and accessories sourced around the world from fair trade artisan partners). In each episode of The Going Scared Podcast, Jessica walks you through what it looks like to move through your fears toward a life of impact and meaning. Join Jessica and change-makers from around the world and from your backyard for a bi-weekly conversation that will motivate and encourage you. Ready to make your move? I love the Going Scared Podcast because it forces you to ask yourself questions, and reflect on what is most meaningful among all the noise of our daily lives.
