One of the best podcasts

Ryan does a wonderful job at making the hymns I know and love come to life with the history of the hymn. So many hymn-writers lived remarkable lives that is inspiring and edifying. So many hymns have been instrumental in the conversion of lost souls and the building up of saints.

If you want your heart warmed to the effects of the gospel, this podcast will certainly do that for you.

Encouraging Hymn Stories

I only found this podcast in 2022, shortly after my 20 year old daughter introduced me to the world of podcasts. I live in an area where, at the time, there was no wifi service, phone service nor 4G, and as an American in a foreign country, I longed to hear my own language. Podcasts were my only lifeline to the world, so I would go to an area with 4G and download podcasts to listen to at home. I’ve always loved hymns and learning the history behind them, and this podcast is beautifully produced and supplied a need in my soul. There are hymns I'm familiar with and hymns I had not yet discovered, and all encourage my faith. I hope and pray this podcast will continue for years, as there are so many beautiful, meaningful hymns out there. Thank you for your hard work!

HYMN STORIES

I have listened to this podcast since it’s beginning and it has given such a new dimension to my morning devotions drawing me closer to Jesus. To hear the faith stories of those of the past who have expressed their faith in words and song has brought new life to hymns I have sung for years. The words now come alive in my heart knowing what motivated others to write them.
