“Will I Ever Overcome Fear, Anxiety & Trauma?”

A terrible car accident left her and her husband fighting for their lives. After years of fighting to recover from physical injuries, severe brain injury, fear, anxiety, trauma, and the heartache of infertility, God brought about healing through pregnancy.

Dr. Marina Hofman is a bible professor in south Florida and the author of the award-winning book, Women in the Bible Small Group Bible Study, available on Amazon and she offers a free video series of women in the Bible at

Marina shares what we can learn from Mary, the mother of Jesus, about moving forwards when life blindsides us, about the blessings and hardships of surrendering to God’s call, and about the importance of community in healing from fear, anxiety and trauma.

Then, Shawna hopes you get what you are longing for this Christmas. But even if you do it won’t satisfy your soul. Only Jesus can do that. Are you longing for Him this Christmas?

Last, Perry shares, “When I was in deep pain of my darkest depression, I felt like God was hurting me, but he was actually bringing me 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.
