The best podcasts to help you live a healthy, balanced life

Hi Beauties!

Any other podcast lovers out there?

I don’t have as much time to read these days, so podcasts have provided the opportunity to continue growing and learning, even when I’m short on time.

I listen to them in the car, in my ear buds while on walks, and on my phone while getting ready for the day.

I thought it would be fun to invite the TBL Team to share some of their favorite podcasts that relate to living a healthy, balanced life and I’d love to hear yours too!

  11. Roberta Caudill 7 months ago

    Any podcast recommendations for moms of teenagers/college students? Although I love The Purpose Show and Coffee and Crumbs looks to be a new favorite, they often seem to be geared towards moms of littles. I know much of the material is universal for moms of all walks of life, but just wondered if there’s anything out there for those trying teenage/college years?

    • Teddi Lamons 7 months ago

      That’s a great question, Roberta! I was just listening to For the Love with Jen Hatmaker…she is currently going through a parenting series, and she has older kids! We have heard great things about The Mom Hour (she has kids from kindergarten into adulthood) and Happier Hour with Jamie Ivey. 🙂

    • Lindsay 7 months ago

      Roberta, maybe check out The Open Door Sisterhood podcast and/or The Mom Hour. Each of the set of hosts have a wider range of children ages, including teenagers/college students.

    • Kristin 7 months ago

      Roberta, try Light the Fight by Heidi Swapp

    • Catherine 7 months ago

    Hi Robin! Thank you for your list of favorite podcasts! I’m a sometimes podcast listener because I can’t figure out when to listen to them! I’m sure the time is available, but I have to be more serious about fitting them in.
    When I do listen, I listen to my niece Kelsey & her former next door neighbor, Erica’s podcast—the Girl Next Door. It’s so enjoyable & like having friends over to chat!
