Beauty from Ashes

Singer, songwriter, violinist, and recording artist Jean Watson joins the team to share how Jesus keeps on creating beauty out of the ashes of her life. First Jean had always dreamed of being a professional musician. She did the hard work from the time she was a child to get there. But before it really even started, it crashed and burned. That’s when she cried out: “God help!”

Then, God used Jean’s landlord to launch her international ministry. Next, during Covid Jesus stripped away all that Jean was doing for him to show her that her identity comes from him, not what she does for him. Then, if Jesus is calling you out of your comfort zone, take the risk. Jean did and it was really hard but the rewards have been amazing.

Next, a conversation about how to find joy in what we do without making that thing we do an idol. Then, Jean was in a high security prison in Ireland, the inmate in the front row was yelling at her in anger. That’s when Jean knelt in front of this guy and sang to him, “Give Me Jesus.” Finally how Jesus rescued Jean’s son from cocaine addiction. Please share today’s show!

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.
