During the pandemic lockdown, you may have binged your entire Netflix watchlist, read every book on your shelf, and crafted everything on your Pinterest board. What’s next? Podcasts! If you need a new podcast recommendation, you should check out the newly-launched Wycliffe Women of the Word podcast.
Wycliffe Women of the Word is presented by Wycliffe Bible Translators USA and feels like grabbing a cup of coffee with a girlfriend to talk about life through the lens of Scripture. Hosts Beth and Jenn talk with women from all walks of life – from moms-next-door and missionaries to well-known authors and singer-songwriters.
Beth Matheson, one of the hosts for Wycliffe Women of the Word says, “I think we tend to categorize people in our heads, where we’re like, ‘Oh, you’re in full-time ministry. You’re famous. I’m just a typical woman living my life.’ The reality of it is our context may be different, but the content of our souls is the same.”
For example, Matheson says, “Our first episode, we kicked off the season with musician, Laura Story. She, again, is just a very regular person who opened up about her struggle to surrender her own plans and shared about ways that her community has come around her family during hard times for them.
“We also talked with Ellie Holcomb, who’s another singer-songwriter who we love. She talked with us about loneliness that she experienced as a young mom, and I think that’s something that a lot of women who have kids can identify with. She talked about how it led her to pursue deeper, honest relationships where she allows friends to look at God’s Word and go, ‘You know what? Your life is not matching Scripture here,’ and challenging her to grow and she can challenge them to grow.
“We also have an author, Leslie Leyland Fields, who is encouraging people to learn how to tell their own stories so that they can recognize the value that God has placed in their lives and the lessons that He has for them in their own stories. Then we’ve also got missionaries and we’ve got even a couple of members of my own personal community who are moms of special needs kids.”
