5 Kid-Friendly Podcasts That Focus on Faith

By Movieguide® Contributor

Are you looking for family-friendly podcasts that will teach your kids more about the Bible? This Movieguide® curated list provides five podcasts that will help your children’s faith come alive.

Ms. Adventure’s Treehouse: Christian Stories for Kids

In “Ms. Adventure‘s Treehouse: Christian Stories for Kids,” Ms. Adventure asks kids to climb into her imaginary tree house while she tells them a story. The podcast was created by Charity Campbell, a Christian mom of two.

Campbell shares original, fun, Christian-based stories for kids using talking animal characters. At the end of each story, she recaps the highs and lows and points out the story’s similarities with Biblical events. She also includes scripture and occasionally references quotes from Christian authors and speakers like John Piper.

Truth Seekers: Bible Stories for Kids

In “Truth Seekers: Bible Stories for Kids,” the host explains Scripture from front to back. Though the title says “Stories for Kids,” adults can also listen and learn. Sherilyn R. Grant, an adjunct Bible professor at Regent University, created the podcast. The stories have a gentle and laid-back tone.

As Grant walks listeners through a portion of the Bible, she asks listeners questions and tries to give details in a way that children can understand. She shares what Jesus or others from the Bible might have been thinking, why they did what they did and their personalities. She says, “The mission of the podcast is to help children see the individual stories of the Bible as part of one large story that reveals God’s redemptive plan to rescue and restore us back to Himself.”

God’s Big Story

“God’s Big Story” is an upbeat, interactive podcast with a lot of additional music and sound effects. The podcast was created by The Village Church out of Flower Mound, Texas, and is hosted by Julie Wilding and Matt McCauley.

Each episode is almost like a condensed version of Vacation Bible School, minus the arts and crafts. Episodes feature clips from kids or adult guests talking about the Bible or other topics. Through energetic dialogue, the hosts teach kids about events in the Bible and include a prayer, a song and maybe even a joke or two. The show encourages remembering Bible verses, the Ten Commandments and other Bible-related concepts.

Hey-O Stories of the Bible: Saddleback Kids

“Hey-O Stories Of The Bible” is a podcast created by Saddleback Church’s kids ministry. It shares short, two to five-minute Bible stories twice a week. Sometimes, the stories are told casually, while others have more humor thrown in.

All of the episodes feature several different silly-sounding character voices throughout the storytelling as the host narrates. It is designed for elementary-age kids, but Saddleback Kids also has a podcast for preschoolers called Stories of the Bible Jr.

Paws and Tales

In “Paws & Tales,” an array of talking animal characters have endless adventures in Wildwood where they, individually or all together, learn moral and Biblical lessons. This high-quality podcast doubles as a radio show and is produced by Insight for Living Ministries, Pastor Chuck Swindoll’s ministry. It is narrated by David Heath. With its wide cast of animated voices, the podcast is well-produced, directed and written.

Each episode weaves a Bible verse, story or theme into its content. It shows that Wildwood’s inhabitants are not always perfect, but they can look to God when they don’t know what to do or when they make a mistake. After storytime is over, many of the episodes end with a song.
