We can “live in the freedom of total forgiveness with reckless confidence” because Jesus took the righteous judgement we deserve. He said, “My life for yours!” Then, it’s hard to take a really close look at the brutal suffering Jesus went through when we realize he went through it because of our sin. But our comfort in looking so closely is this—knowing that he chose to go through it because of his extravagant love for us!
Next, Jesus had enemies who hated him—Judas, the Roman soldiers, some Jewish leaders. But they aren’t the only ones who hated Jesus, there’s some of that in our hearts. But here’s the wonder of Jesus, he absorbs the punishment for our hatred of him on the cross. Finally, Jesus invites you to bring your most painful questions to him. And he will draw the pain out of us and heal us by asking us some questions.
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!
