Podcasts

I really enjoy podcasts and they’re one of my favorite things to listen to while getting ready, driving long distances, folding laundry, etc. and since I talk about them all the time I thought it would be fun to start a mini series on the blog showcasing podcasts in different categories. I’ll admit, most of the podcasts I end up listening to are faith-based (sermons), but lately I’ve been getting into other (more laid-back) topics such as industry trends, business tips, and self-help.

Sermon: “Peace-Overcoming Anxiety” By Tim Keller

Here’s the run-down on this sermon: It’s all about understanding and overcoming anxiety and worry in our lives. This is a really important topic for me because I’m for sure a worrier! I love this sermon because it explains the issues in depth, but is also super practical.

“I Will Stand” by Louie Giglio

Every once and while I listen to a podcast or read scripture that gets me SO. FIRED. UP. about eternity in Heaven. I mean I know I should be fired up about this all the time, but the truth is…I get distracted. I mean, come on. But this is one of those podcasts. If you are going through a struggle – big or small – you’ve got to listen to…

Podcast Recommendation: Learning and Storytelling

This is a fun theme, and one I’m starting to get more into when it comes to podcasts. They make me feel like a kid again! I love to read, and the list below basically makes me feel like I’m listening to a book on tape. The idea of learning while I’m doing a mundane task is so fun – especially if I’m driving or doing something boring. These pass…

Top 5 Christian Podcasts

I've been wanting to share my thoughts on my favorite podcasts (Christian and in general) for almost a year now - it's one of my most frequently asked questions on here, Instagram, AND Snapchat. I'm thrilled to finally be sitting down and knocking this out! After I got a few hours into working on this post, I realized that I had SO MUCH I wanted to say and information/resources I wanted to give y'all. Because of that, I decided that I MUST break this post up into a little mini-series, focusing first on Christian podcasts followed by my favorite that aren't Christian based.

Fruit of The Spirit

As promised, I’ve embedded my instagram from March that got me thinking about fruits of the spirit… A photo posted by BrightonTheDay.com (@brightonkeller) on Mar 27, 2015 at 7:28am PDT Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to really (truly) live for Christ. I’m not talking about the safe or cool way either…I’m talking about doing it FOR REAL. I think there have been periods of my…

Where Do We Place Our Hopes?

The unfortunate thing about blogging these days is that your 'success' is on display for everyone to see and measure up. And I'll admit (although I like to deny this about myself), I'm a pretty competitive person. And because God made me this way (ha!), this also means that I'm driven, determined and just all-around intense. The difference with blogging (as opposed to other domains of life) is that people are bound to judge me based on certain metrics - whether that be Instagram followers, comment counts, site design + whatever other ways one could possibly 'measure' a blogger's success.
