Kindled Podcast is a podcast for women to discuss motherhood, work and the grace we need for both.

Everything from the latest best practices in SEO for your business to parenting to occupying your God-given space, whatever that may be, if the topic is one you as a woman face in your life, it’s game for the show. 

But the heart behind the show is not to have fruitless discussions but discussions that lead us to Jesus. To the reality of our need, to the heart of God and His best for our lives: being fully known and fully loved, regardless of our performance, achievement or lack thereof in our work OR our motherhood.

Every episode offers encouragement from a biblical worldview and reminds you of your true source of our hope – Christ alone. Listen at one of the channels below!
