“Let Me Share the Worst Thing I’ve Ever Done”

Jeremy’s life was good. He had everything a person could want. But he threw it all away in the most public way possible, complete with criminal charges and his mug in the newspaper.  In 2013, he became caught up in a consensual ten-month emotional affair. A few months in he was depressed, suicidal, and living a double life.

By the time the obsession had run its course, Jeremy would find himself standing below this woman’s bedroom window, reduced from a leader in the community to little more than a peeping-tom. He was convicted of a felony, felt the sting of public shame, and had to resign his pastoral position and the seminary where he taught.

But God. God is a redeemer. If you’ve wrecked your life through your own bad choices, find hope in Jeremy’s jaw-dropping story. Jeremy Grinnell earned his Ph.D. from Calvin Seminary in Grand Rapids, MI, and taught seminary for nearly 15 years.  Jeremy courageously shares his story with us and in his book, The Bellowing of Cain: Hope for Those Who’ve Blown It.

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.
