Downshift to Thankful

Perry and Shawna share stories about Jesus growing thankfulness in them.  Shawna talks about how a shift from seeing God as a cosmic vending machine to One who is worthy of worship has created in her deeper thankfulness.  Perry shares the story of the first time he ever gave thanks in a hardship, the evening he got cut from the Little League baseball team and how it taught him about God’s unshakeable love.  A listener shares how thankfulness literally puts wind in her sails when life is hard.  Shawna shares one of the greatest challenges she’s faced in the last year.  And we share a text from a listener who one year ago was headed for divorce from a husband who was not a Jesus follower and what has happened in this last year to turn her marriage completely around
