God’s love in Jesus has embraced the worst, the unlovable in us. That’s what changes us. And now that we’ve been loved like this, we’re called to love the unlovable. For Luke Smallbone of For King and Country, the unlovable person for him was his bride Courtney as she wrestled with an addiction to prescription drugs. Then Shawna doesn’t like change because it’s uncomfortable and hard. But she realizes that becoming like Jesus requires change. Find out how she dances with that tension.
Next, singer-songwriter Tasha Layton had a lot of little wounding experiences growing up. And the enemy jumped on those wounding experiences with the lie: “You don’t matter, you should be ashamed of being yourself.” And the lies led to a suicide attempt. Then in high school, Perry and his buddies thought it would be a great idea to make a copy of the key to get into the gym to play hoops. But it was a BAD idea! Finally, what it looks like “to be ready to give a reason for the hope within you,” (1 Peter 3:15).
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!
