“In My Agony I Could Only Utter One Word: ‘Help!’”

She had just suddenly lost her 2-year-old daughter, Naomi. The pain was unbearable as she cried out the one word prayer that changed her life, “Help!”

Founder of Whole Heart Ministries, author, and international speaker, Jo Naughton, is dedicated to helping men, women, children, and teens be healed on the inside so we can fulfill our God-given purpose.

As adults and as parents we can experience healing from our own hurts and in turn help our children to experience healing from theirs.

Jo shares why healing is so necessary and how it is a catalyst for change.

Then you’re probably heard it said there are two things we should never bring up, religion and politics. So naturally Perry brings us religion and politics! In particular Israel’s war with Hamas and what he thinks about it.  

Have you ever felt like God was absent? There are times in our relationship with God when it feels like He’s far away. In these moments, rather than relying on our perception or our feelings we can trust God and His Word to never leave us or forsake us.

If you’ve ever felt the nudge to pray for someone but also felt afraid that you would say the wrong thing Shawna offers a very simple prayer that you can share with anyone, anywhere.

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.

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.
