Podcast: Little Things
Hosts: Amber Albee Swenson, a Time of Grace writer and blogger
Description: “Amber Albee Swenson will help you navigate through some of life’s challenges and struggles by using Scripture and her own experiences of being a mom, wife, speaker, teacher, and forgiven child of God. . . . Because in God’s kingdom, the little things ARE the big things.”
A taste of previous topics: Renewing our spiritual lives, living lives of service, following God’s will, idols, abortion, being content with God’s provision, finding joy in suffering.
Length: 20-30 minutes
Some thoughts: : In each episode, Amber Albee Swenson explains, “Here at Little Things, we examine everyday issues from a biblical perspective with one simple goal: to know and love God more.” This description couldn’t be more accurate. Using an intimate, devotional approach, Little Things discusses many of the challenges and questions facing Christians today. Swenson is willing to make herself vulnerable—often sharing areas in which she falls short of perfection. As a result, listeners will feel as though they are sitting down for coffee with a wise, yet imperfect, friend. She has a unique ability to point out sins gently and lovingly that many of us attempt to gloss over in today’s culture of materialism and moral relativism. Rather than relying on her own wisdom to do so, however, Swenson continually points listeners back to Scripture and the unconditional love of our heavenly Father. While any Christian will certainly find value in the podcast, it is my belief that women in particular will find themselves returning to Swenson’s little corner of the Internet over and over again.
