Maybe your gospel gets you in God’s family, and it’s something you share with people who don’t know Jesus. But it stops there. Your gospel gets you in, but then it’s on you to keep yourself in. If so, your gospel doesn’t go far enough or deep enough. Today we go deeper. It’s a conversation about how the gospel gets us in God’s forever family, grows us, matures us, empowers us, and fuels us for our journey. And it’s the gospel that will bring us into all God has promised—The day when we’re breathing the air of the new heavens and new earth in an indestructible body with people from every language, ethnicity, family, and nation, experiencing the bottomless ocean of God’s love! Helping us go deeper is Jared C. Wilson, who’s a professor at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He’s also the host of The Art of Pastoring Podcast. And Jared has a ton of books about how the gospel is our life, our breath, our hope, our everything!
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!
