Today, Afton, one of our listeners shares how Jesus embraced her at one of her lowest points through Jesus’ people—she realized Jesus wanted her! Then singer/songwriter Crowder shares how Jesus found him after he’d had enough with organized religion. Then if you’re far from God and you want to come back, but you don’t know how, Perry’s got an idea for you. Next, if you’re in a storm, and you need direction, but it feels like God is sleeping, Tim Keller proves it’s not true.
Then Luke Smallbone of For King and Country shares what he learned during a season of suffering when he almost died. Next, if you need to make a big decision and there’s no chapter and verse in God’s word to show the way, here’s what you should consider. And finally, Bart Millard of MercyMe shares about a season when he couldn’t get on stage and say, “God’s got this,” because he couldn’t really believe it himself. It’s the story behind their song Even If. Please share if you’re encouraged!
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!
