“God, If You’re Real, I Need You To Show Up”

A movement called “deconstruction” is sweeping through our churches and it’s affecting those we love. It has disrupted, dismantled, and destroyed the faith of SO many.

Alisa Childers shares how she was led into questioning what she believed about God and the Bible. It was more than reconsidering data, it was a painful fissure in her relationship with God.

She questioned whether the Bible could be trusted, if the people in the Bible really existed and was told that the crucifixion was a form of “cosmic child abuse.”

She spent about five years wrestling with God and she walked away with a limp but she says, “I’d rather walk with a limp on solid ground than without one on thin ice.”

Then, have you ever felt unreasonably anxious?  Shawna leaves tomorrow for Australia to welcome her first grandbaby and she’s a little anxious about flying internationally alone.

She’s anxious about what her daughter will experience in labor. And not knowing when that will happen. Having had a recent panic attack she’s paying attention to all she’s feeling and she’s trusting God with each and every part of it.

Then Perry shares, “If you knew my top ten sins you’d do one of two things. You’d never listen to me again. Or you’d find hope that you too can be forgiven of your top ten sins!”

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.
