The culture says, “Follow your heart. Just do it. You do you. Express what you feel is true.” And so many are going off the cliff with that advice. Jesus Christ is true north in a culture adrift! Then, you may be a silent sufferer, no one knows your private pain, wounds, shame. But God knows and sees and will redeem what no one else knows. Next, “Christ lives through me!” It’s sounds so amazing, but is it really true? In 1920 Uganda, Elizabeth wounded Florence deeply. They were both in Uganda to share Jesus. Florence was being swallowed by bitterness and decided to leave. But the Christ in her had another plan. Then, work with me here: if Jesus were a tightrope walker flawlessly walking back and forth across the Niagara Falls, then faith is not just believing Jesus can do that, but it’s getting in the wheelbarrow. Finally, Perry fact checks a story Shawna shares in the show and Perry’s skepticism gets a beat down. : )
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.
Perry and Shawna Mornings helps start your day with heart-to-heart conversations, compelling guests, and songs reminding you that you are Abba’s child! You have been blessed to be a blessing, and you have been loved to share Jesus’ love!
