Greg from Zeeland joins the team and shares his beautiful heart in such a real way. He wants so much to share the love of Jesus in his workplace, he longs for his co-workers to know Jesus’ love. He wants to talk to the guys, but it’s scary. And the song We Speak Jesus is giving him hope! Then Greg opens up about his longing to be the spiritual leader in his family. And Perry and Shawna coach him up. Next Shawna shares the incredibly high bar of loving as Jesus loves. That can be discouraging if we try to reach it in our own strength. But we can never love as he does in our own strength—a conversation about loving with the power of the Spirit.
Then a couple weeks ago Perry and Shawna were with the Moody Radio morning teams across the US and they saw Ephesians 4:2-3 come to life! “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.” Next Perry shares how it feels risky to share his story because there’s a lot of junk and sin in it. But he knows it’s worth it because it reminds him of Jesus’ mercy and gives others hope that they too can be forgiven. And finally, Greg from Zeeland steps back in to give us a job performance review. Share this show 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!
