Where Self-Help Ends and God’s Power Begins

If your journey with Jesus feels like pushing a massive boulder up a hill in your own strength, it’s time for a reset. Karl Clauson joins the team to show us what it looks like to live in God’s strength and not our own. Karl hosts Karl & Crew Mornings for Moody Radio in Chicago and is author The 7 Resolutions: Where Self-Help Ends and God’s Power Begins.  First, Karl shares how grace crashed into him.

Then 3 weeks after Jesus transformed him, he stumbled big time and thought it was over before he’d begun! Next, humility is where God’s strength begins. Next, Karl lied to get into bible college, owning it led to a breakthrough. Then, Jesus’ strategy for killing our sin. Next, desperate dependence plus Spirit-powered effort is a bridge to God’s power. Then, the way we come to Jesus is the way we grow in Jesus, we never move on from the gospel. Finally, Jesus coaches us up when we fail, to teach us how to be free from sin.

Perry LaHaie

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

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.
