Freedom Friday with Billy and Jodie Ballenger

Billy and Jodie join the team on Perry and Shawna Mornings to share their story of redemption.  Billy is a Christian music artist and Jodie is the author of Beautifully Unbroken—A Prostitute’s Daughter.  Billy grew up being bullied and was robbed of his self-esteem.  Jodie was abused and neglected growing up and she and Billy met at reform school as teenagers.  They ran away together, got married, started running with dangerous people and ended up in prison.  And that’s where Jesus did a major work of transformation in them.  First Billy shares his story with Perry and Shawna. 

Then he shares how Jesus is deepening his faith in this pandemic. Next Perry and Shawna disagree with Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers who thinks that God wants to and will send most of humanity to hell.  It’s a message of what God’s heart is really like, and how he want you in his family.  Then if you’re feeling hopeless, depressed, anxious, maybe even suicidal, Billy has hope for you!  And finally Jodie shares how Jesus has healed her and is healing her from the shame of abuse.
