In the best moments from today's show, West Michigan singer, songwriter and worship leader, Kali Joy (Perry’s daughter) joins us to talk about the stories behind the songs from her debut self-titled EP. She shares how Jesus is freeing her from the lie that she’s unwanted and unloved. But first we hear a story from Christian thinker Hugh Ross: How God used a German Shepherd to help him lead a family to Jesus! Then Kali Joy shares that the first time she really clung to the truth that God loves her was like breaking the surface of the ocean to breathe freedom for the first time. Then Kali shares the story of asking God to show her he pursues her and that in sixty seconds God answered with a knock at her door. Then we have a conversation with Kali about how it’s never safe to love, there’s always a risk. And that the only way to take that risk is to know the love of the God who risked it all to show us his love. And finally Kali Joy shares that in the grueling process of finishing her EP, God freed her to rest in his love as her ultimate identity rather than seeking it in creating a perfect project. She traded results for rest! You can hear Kali’s songs on all streaming platforms.
