Shawna admits that the older she gets, the more she’s drawn to comfort. Even feels entitled to it. Comfort is a strong value in America and it competes big time with our loyalty to Jesus, whose way is sometimes really hard, but not without his gentle comfort. Then we drink from a million wells trying quench our deepest thirst while only one well will satisfy. Next, marriage is one of the wells we can drink from to try to satisfy our deepest thirst, but even marriage, as beautiful as it is, can’t satisfy our deep down soul thirst.
Then, post-moderns struggle with the idea that Jesus is the only way to God. If you struggle with this, listen in to this conversation about why Jesus just may be the only one in the universe qualified to be that bridge. Finally, Perry has been sharing about going through a season of depression. And Ted, a Perry and Shawna Mornings listener is grateful cause he struggles too. But Ted didn’t just call to encourage Perry, he called to encourage you! Share this show 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!
