Becky grew up in a pastor’s home loving Jesus and yet experienced the trauma of on-going sexual abuse as a child through several members of a family in her dad’s church. She thought of every way possible to take her life as a teenager. She was abandoned by her first husband and left homeless with her four children in a Michigan winter. She went through 2 years of agonizing loss: 5 babies to miscarriage and 1 to stillbirth, her mom, her brother, her friend Lisa who died in Becky’s basement of a massive heart attack. And in all this, Becky is filled with hope. Because Jesus broke into Becky’s darkness and has redeemed and restored and given her a message for those who’ve lost hope, maybe you? Becky Nordquist is an author, worship leader, recording artist, and wounded healer with a passion to bring the life of Jesus to the desert places of your life. This is her story—please share!
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.
Perry and Shawna Mornings helps start your day with heart-to-heart conversations, compelling guests, and songs reminding you that you are Abba’s child! You have been blessed to be a blessing, and you have been loved to share Jesus’ love!
