If You Could Go Back and Change Your Past, Would You?

Our buddy, Chris, a Perry and Shawna listener, reflects on his recent divorce, how painful it is, and has been, and why he wouldn’t steer his younger self away from falling in love with his ex-wife all over again.

Then, Shawna shares about a greater freedom she’s beginning to experience. The freedom of seeing this life as a place to learn, to make mistakes, and learn from them. A place where she doesn’t have to get everything perfectly right.

Was Abraham a monster for being willing to sacrifice his son? What God a monster for commanding him to do so? Some argue that. But that would be a grave misunderstanding. At the heart of God’s testing of Abraham is the revelation of the limitless love of God and the crux of what Good Friday is all about.

Remember when Mary poured that perfume on Jesus and he said it was in preparation for his burial? Have you ever thought of how that fragrance would have been the fragrance everyone would have smelled on Jesus way to the cross? When we pour ourselves out before the Lord it’s a beautiful fragrance he carries with him.

Jesus was fully man and fully God. In a devotional by Tara Leigh Cobble she points out that in the garden of Gethsemane Jesus’ humanity surrenders to His divinity just like our humanity must surrender to His divinity.

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.

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.
