In this busy world, we don’t always have time to feed our soul beyond the time we hopefully spend with God each day.
Fortunately, Christian podcasts are available 24-hours a day. Easily accessed on my phone or computer, I love to play them in the car driving, doing housework or going for a walk.
In a sense, podcasts are multi-tasking for the soul!
Here are ten podcasts I enjoy. Access them on iTunes by clicking on the titles below, or search for them by title on your favorite podcast player (learn how here).[Some affiliate links are used in this post.]
