It took Marina Hofmann 5 years to recover from the head-on crash she and her husband were in. If her husband hadn’t leaned over from the driver’s side to cushion Marina’s blow he would have died because the engine was pushed into the driver’s seat.
Marina likely would have died as well without her husband’s heroic move. But God had another plan. Dr. Marina Hoffman’s a Bible professor at Palm Beach Atlantic University and author of the award-winning book, Women in the Bible Small Group Bible Study.
She joins the team to share her riveting story of survival and she shares how Mary, the mother of Jesus inspired her in her 5-year recovery that included not only physical and brain injuries, but also PTSD, depression, and anxiety. And how Mary still inspires her and speaks to us about trust, obedience, and faithfulness to God.
Last, Shawna’s been trying to control and fix all her problems lately. A few days back the Lord posed a question: “Do you think you really can solve all the world’s problems?” And last, Perry shares the joy of being able to lead Bimmer’s dad to Jesus. Share this show!
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.
