Jesus brings back to life in us what has died. For Shawna it’s boldness, for Perry it’s being more convinced that Jesus loves him. Then, Perry was given a beautiful gift from God as a teenager and the very next day he let Jesus down, big time. But his first step toward healing was realizing that Jesus still loved him. If you have big time failed, do you still believe Jesus loves you? Next, the default mode of our hearts is self. Self-worship, self-sufficiency, even self-hatred. How do we break out of these patterns? It takes a power beyond ourselves.
Then, in your relationship with Jesus, when you come to him, do you see yourself as clean or do you feel like you have to clean up all the mess in you first? Finally, there are people who help us get closer to God, and that’s beautiful. But people let us down, people are sinners like us, people we trust to help us get closer, die. So we need a perfect priest, and that’s what Jesus is! We will always be able to get to God through him because he lives forever! Please share today’s 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!
