Whenever we hold back our “yes” from God, whatever the reason, we’re missing out on the incredible things he wants to do in us and through us. Jennifer Hand, author of My Yes Is on the Table: Moving from Fear to Faith joins the team to help us move forward! First Jennifer was NOT one of the cool kids growing up. But that didn’t matter to Jesus! Then, Jennifer had her whole life mapped out and Jesus interrupted (!) her plan. Next, fear of rejection was keeping Jen from saying “yes.”
Then, what to do if fear is holding back your “yes.” Next, if you’re afraid, admit it, bring your fears to Jesus and then remember how he’s come through in the past. Then, on top of Mt. Nebo overlooking Israel Jen cried out, “Jesus, I don’t want to miss your best because of fear and disobedience!” Next, the Lord won’t stay inside the little boxes we try to put him in—Jen found that out on the back of an elephant. Finally, Perry and Shawna admit the fears that are keeping them from moving forward. If you’re encouraged, please share the show!
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!
