And the shame of his sin nearly killed him. Until Jesus healed him, and he learned to take captive every thought. This is Stephen Arterburn’s gripping story. Stephen’s the founder of New Life Ministries and the host of the Christian counseling talk show New Life Live. Stephen’s joins the team with a conversation about his newest book Every Believer’s Thought Life: Defeating Destructive Mental Patterns to Gain Victory Over Temptation.
In our conversation Stephen gives us an ocean depth of wisdom and Spirit-powered tools to overcome the poisonous thoughts that try to, straight up, take us out! Whether it’s lust, shame, worry, regret, bitterness, whatever the poisonous thought, we can be healed, we can learn to take captive every thought and we can learn to turn our painful thoughts into growing deep in Jesus. Please share today’s show!
Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.
Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
