The Top 10 Podcast Episodes of 2021 (Part 1)

Numbers are growing on me. All during high school, and even throughout college and grad school, I would’ve identified as a numbers girl. I like the information numbers can give me. They aren’t partial. They don’t lie. They just are what they are. They aren’t always the full picture, but they’re endlessly useful, especially when trying to read an audience.

When I started doing ministry, over 20 years ago now, I got away from the numbers. 

They started to get blurry to me, and I found myself developing into more of a relationship person than a numbers person. I’m your ministry girl. I’ve served in ministry since before I finished school, and I hope the Lord will always let me. But as we moved into 2022, I felt the Lord calling me to challenge myself to be both. So I’ve taken some basic steps back into allowing numbers to speak to me and show me their secrets, and in that vein, I looked up the stats for the Million Praying Moms podcast for 2021 and found the top ten episodes.

Here are your first five…

1. A Refresher Course on Prayer, with Brooke and Erin (45:21)

If you’ve been a Christian a long time, it can be easy to get lazy or too familiar with foundational Christian disciplines, like prayer. We say to ourselves, “Of course prayer is important. I know that…” and then we get distracted by life and forget to make it a priority. We’ve all been there. If that describes you, someone who truly does know that prayer is very important, but has maybe let life get in the way of making it a part of your every day experience, this show is for you.
