Most of us will experience an event in our lives that could be considered traumatic. Trauma is an invisible force that shapes nearly all of our lives – including the way we live, the way we love, and the way we make sense of the world.
Is there a pathway to healing from family trauma and addiction? There is. And Paula is walking it.
Paula Jauch is the founder and executive director of the non-profit organization, Walking Into freedom. She is a trauma survivor, award-winning author, speaker, and host of the Pretty Podcast. She has a heart and passion to help those who have been affected by trauma and addiction.
In this episode we talk with Paula about family trauma & addiction, forgiveness, setting healthy boundaries, breaking free from generational sin, God’s heart for our families and how when we heal we can help others heal as well.
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 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.
