I Couldn’t Stop Sinning

Glenna Marshall memorized scripture as a child to compete with other churches in bible drills. Then she stopped. She picked it up again in her 30’s when she was crying out to God to help her get victory over her sin of impatience with her kids.

Writer, mother, and lover of Scripture Glenna Marshall has since learned the power of memorizing scripture to renew her mind and make her fall more in love with Jesus. She joins us to talk about her new book Memorizing Scripture: The Basics, Blessings, And Benefits of Meditation on God’s Word.

Along with personal stories I think you’ll identify with Glenna as she shares practical ways we can learn to hide God’s word in our hearts.

Also, in this episode, it’s a title given to Jesus only twice in the New Testament, and in one title it captures God’s plan to heal the world!

Shawna shares how we all long for intimate relationships and offers some practical things we can do to deepen our friendships.

Last, Jesus furiously pursues sinners who hate themselves, like you and me, and breaks down our every excuse to bring us home.

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.
