“I Was Trying to Be the Savior of My Own Story”

Author, Speaker and Coach, Becky Beresford, had been believing the lies we’ve all believed. Lies that closely resemble the truth but leave out the most important part of it.

In She Believed HE Could, So She Did, Becky invites us to journey toward freedom as she dismantles the most common lies promoted by our culture. And she counters the misconceptions with gospel-rooted truth:  Believe in Yourself God, Speak Your the Truth, Follow Your Heart King, You Be You His.

Then, Shawna waited 6 years for her son’s breakthrough healing. And Perry has been waiting decades for a breakthrough that has not yet come. So he keeps on asking and keeps on trusting.

Does the word “accountability” make you cringe? It doesn’t have to. God calls us to spur one another on to love and good deeds. Living that out has way more to do with encouragement than judgement. It could be fun!

Perry’s friends Jim and Shirley went to the coffee shop, sat down in 2 of 3 soft chairs and waited for someone to sit in the 3rd. Someone they hoped would be open to the gospel. What they didn’t expect was that person to mock them!

Last, when we’re going through it, it’s really tempting to believe that it’s never going to get better. Shawna shares how there were times in her recovery from her foot surgery when she fell into despair, wondering if healing would come and what encouraged her at that time.

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.
