The Unlikely Path to God’s Purpose

Jean Watson has been given a gift. It’s heard in her music and felt in her gentle presence.

Jean plays violin with the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, hosts an internationally broadcast radio show, tours across the country and around the world both as a performing artist and as a sought-after speaker.

She also recently released her 12th album, Behold (Carols of Worship) and her first book, Everything Can Change in Forty Days.

Twenty years ago, as a single mom raising four kids and trying to make ends meet, her landlord gifted her a Christmas tree. As he was delivering the tree he heard a recording of her singing that brought him to tears.

He told her, “I don’t know what you are doing with your life but I think this is it!” He told her to use that month’s rent money to record. And she did. 

Jean shares her wrestling, surrendering journey to find God’s purpose, the God-ordained moments along the way, and the overarching theme that God has a plan for your life and if you will trust Him and obey He will lead you right into it.

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.
