Seeing 2022 through a Jesus lens! First, one of our listeners Jason, emailed us: “Can you suggest any material on how best to share Jesus? A guy who does some work for me just lost his wife who was in her 30’s. I don’t know him really well but want to offer words. Jesus is opening these doors for me, and I need to walk through them.” So, Shawna and Perry have a conversation about sharing the good news in a relational, organic way. Then to follow Jesus we gotta leave some things behind, those things we think we love but really are just ripping us off. Next, God’s plan is mind-blowing: Before the creation of the world, he chose a Lamb to save us. And finally, if you’ve been blind-sided by life, Shawna can relate. And she’s found hope to share with you.
Some sweet shades for you to wear in 2022. If you do, here’s what life could look like: Shawna has struggled with anxiety for 30 years. But what the struggle looked like then and what it looks like now is massively different, and the difference has everything to do with trust muscles. Then one of Perry’s most listened to songs in 2021 from Spotify Wrapped was Ross King’s, Things I’m Afraid Of. It’s a conversation about how feelings, as overwhelming and convincing as they can be, are not the truth. Next, if you feel you’ve out-sinned God’s promises and that you’ve been banished to the bench, never to be useful to God again, nope! Then, if you want more joy in your life, you need more obedience to God. Wait, what? Yup. Finally, Jesus is like a janitor, and he’s like a patent. Perry’s mom explains in a way only she can. Share this if you’re encouraged by it!
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!
