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.

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.”

For Those Struggling with God’s Goodness

This Too Shall Last

For Finding Grace When Suffering Lingers

“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.” Navigate the unexpected as you tune into this podcast.
