“Jesus Where Were You When I Was Abused?”

That’s the question Amy did NOT want to ask. But the answer Jesus gave her, healed her heart. Author and bible teacher Amy Seiffert joins us with a conversation around her new book, Starved: Why We Need A Spiritual Diet Change To Move Us From Tired, Anxious, and Overwhelmed To Fulfilled, Whole, and Free.

It’s a conversation about breaking free from the spiritual junk food that leaves us empty to fill up on the only thing that gives us rest for our weary, wounded souls: The goodness of Jesus. First, how Jesus healed Amy’s deep wounds that came from sexual abuse. Then, the guy said to Amy, “Why don’t I teach the bible and you bring the brownies?” Yup he really said that.

Next, it doesn’t have to look a certain way to fill up on Jesus’ presence. Then, when Jesus lifted Amy’s weight of sin, she literally felt 80 pounds lighter! Next, learning to let God love you. Then, spiritual self-help is well, pride. Last, the greatest way we can encourage each other is with the gospel! Please share this if it’s encouraged you.

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.

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

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.
