The Power of the Second Thought

Our friend, Jesse, is back! And he brings an infusion of hope as he shares that you and I are not victims of our thoughts but can learn to control them.

Your first thought is what’s usually the big fat lie. And so when you learn the power of the second thought, it’ll change your life!

Jesse Bradley is the lead pastor of Grace Community Church in the greater Seattle. He is powerful Jesus communicator and former professional soccer goalkeeper.

Jesse was an atheist who came to know Jesus at Dartmouth College after a tragic illness. God transformed him in the pain. Now he’s on major network and international television because he wants everyone to know that they are loved by God.

He encourages and empowers us to receive and give hope where we live, work, learn and play. Jesse and his wife, Laurie, have four children and a patient dog named Bella.

He’s joining us to talk about his brand new book The Power of the Second Thought: How to Live with Indestructible Hope.

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.
