Jesus knows everything about us, our darkest secrets, our scariest skeletons in the closet, and he says, “Come, see the nail scars in my hands, find forgiveness for your shameful regrets.” Then, the enemy’s lie is: “The more of God in your life, the less you’ll find joy in life.” Jesus says, “The more of me in your life, the more you’ll experience peace, meaning, purpose and unshakeable love.”
Next, Shawna’s best friend Latrece joins the team! In her 20’s Latrece found herself relying on Percocet and brandy to deal with the deep pain in her heart. That’s when her mom asked her to come to a woman’s conference. Toward the end of the meeting, the speaker said “Latrece where are you?” The speaker had no idea who Latrece was. But God did. What Latrece did next changed her life forever.
Then, Latrece’s right now is hard—With people close to her she’s seeing death, divorce, depression, and drugs. It’s really hard. And there’s one powerful promise that’s holding her together. Finally, we live in a culture that wants to cancel us for our faith in Jesus. But don’t freak out! Keep on sharing the good news with gentleness and respect!
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!
