I listen to my ipod around the house while I'm cleaning, or while my three year old son is watching TV. Because it's the spoken word (and not music), I can still easily hear a cry of distress or the phone ring or other background noise. For this reason, I also listen to it in the car, although I'm not really sure you're supposed to do that. Music blocks everything else out, but the podcasts don't. I can even hear the cute little three-year-old voice asking for something from the backseat, so I hit pause and then answer his questions.
So now that you know how I use my ipod, I thought I'd share what's on my ipod. There are a few podcasts that I just love. They encourage me to keep first things first--my family, my marriage, my relationship with God--which is what truly leads to contentment, right?
