Ce Ce Winans!

Grammy and Dove award winning artist Ce Ce Winans, who sang “Goodness of God,” on the American Idol finale on May 19, joins the team!  Ce Ce shares how she fell in love with the Father; and when life got so hard she didn’t think she could take another step.

Ce Ce also shares that the Lord is calling her into deeper water. She muses, “I pray God will work through me like he did in Acts!”  “People brought the sick into the streets and laid them on mats so that Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them,” (Acts 5:15).

Then, when Ce Ce won the Dove award for Artist of the Year in 2022, it was totally unexpected. She hadn’t rehearsed her speech. As she stepped up to the mic, what came out of her mouth was stunning and beautiful.

Next, what will Jesus do to reach someone? Whatever it takes. Case in point, Jesus showed up at the 2024 American Idol finale through Ce Ce Winans and Roman Collins. Then Ben asks Perry for the story behind his new single, Tears This Side of Eden. Tears was birthed in suffering, not victory.

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.
