In our culture where politics have divided families, where friendships are destroyed because “You’re wrong and I’m right!” Where cancel culture thrives, where trust is broken in marriages; we need to find our way back to each other! Dr. Gary Chapman, best-selling author of The Five Love Languages joins the team to show us the way back—apologizing to the one we’ve hurt in a way that compelling connects. It’s a conversation about his book The Five Apology Languages: The Secret to Healthy Relationships.
First, Gary shares his faith story—one Sunday morning he felt compelled to give his life over to Jesus but didn’t. He thought he had lost his only chance. Then, Gary breaks down the five apology languages—The person we’ve hurt needs our apology, but it needs to be in their apology language to bring real healing. Next, Perry’s conversation in the sauna with the guy who wouldn’t take the first step toward his brother cause, “It was his fault!” Then, if we keep on canceling each other, we’re going to destroy each other! Finally, Perry admits the number one reason he doesn’t want to apologize.
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!
