What We're Listening To
Lately, our headphones have been a welcome tool to help us refuel. Whether heading out for a walk or cleaning up the kitchen (again!) podcasts and audiobooks give us life!
A few notes before we begin:
If you've never done podcasts before, if you have an iPhone, search "podcasts" and prepare to enter a whole new world! Mom, this tip is for you!
Also, this mom just pulled the "quarantine" card and invested in some airpods for Mother's Day. They're already changing my life, that is, when my seven-year-old hasn't stolen them for his Zoom calls...
Here's what we're loving:
That Sounds Fun with Annie Downs
Less like a podcast and more like coffee with friends, Annie’s podcast, released on Mondays and Thursdays, features her favorite things and favorite people. Pretty much, if it sounds fun to Annie, she wants you to hear about it.
Made For This Podcast with Jennie Allen
Short. Fun. Truth. Real conversation about the struggles we face and the God that sets us free.
Rhythms for Life with Gabe and Rebekah Lyons
From artists, nutritionists and psychologists to thought leaders, advocates and entrepreneurs, listeners will meet expert guides that will help them keep stress and anxiety at bay and pursue everyday moments of abundance by establishing four life-giving rhythms: rest, restore, connect, and create.
Apps for audiobooks:
Hoopla--link this to your library card and you can get up to 10 free rentals a month. We suggest starting with Beth Moore's latest book, Chasing Vines (she reads it!), or Lysa Terkeurst's book, It's Not Supposed to Be This Way. Moms with kids, we love The Read Aloud Family by Sarah Mackenzie.
Scrib'd--sign up for a free trial and get even more audiobooks. We'd start with Jennie Allen's Get Out of Your Head (read by the author!), or maybe re-live a classic like Jane Austen--the sky is the limit!
