3 Podcasts to Help Navigate the Unexpected
Feeling connected while you navigate the unexpected is essential. Today, I’ve compiled a list of podcasts that help people to feel seen, known, and loved within the circumstances that surround their lives.
I pray these podcasts will stir you toward hope, help you walk toward healing, and offer you a dose of encouragement when you need it most.
Not My Story Podcast
For Those Whose Life Didn’t Go According to Plan
Life doesn’t always go according to plan. Podcast host Sarah Westfall believes that within those narratives of expectation and reality, therein lies an invitation into something more.
What to Expect:
“Not My Story is a conversational podcast about faith and the unexpected. Here we talk about the unplanned pieces of our lives and how those narratives have shifted our understanding of God, so that together we can find not only the grace to live our stories, but also the courage to tell them.”
Even if Podcast
For Those Struggling with God’s Goodness
Have these questions crossed your mind?
What do we do when life is anything but good? When God doesn’t answer our prayers the way we’ve asked or imagined? Or when disappointments and loss dominate this season of life?
If so, the Even If podcast is for you.
What to Expect
“No stranger to loss and longing, Kelly Streiff creates space to acknowledge deep pain and grief, while walking with us on a journey of becoming “Even If” people – people who stand firm in our faith even if God doesn’t show up the way we expect or desire.”
This Too Shall Last
For Finding Grace When Suffering Lingers
For some, pain never becomes past tense, it remains present in their lives. Where is God in those stories? K.J. explores that in This Too Shall Last.
What to Expect
“Some hard things stay in our lives until Jesus returns, so I’m here to host conversations about the stories in the middle, where so many of us live yet so few describe. Through frank, honest conversations with other authors, therapists, friends, and my readers, I’m inviting you to imagine that stories that include suffering are worth telling and worth living.”
