Perry’s friend thinks that God has fatalistically determined him to be outside God’s family forever. A conversation about why that could never be true! Then, Perry’s been working on a new song for a year, it’s been a long, painful process as its message of rejecting the idols of culture has been pressed into his heart. And now as it’s ready to be released it may be that God is showing him not to release it. It’s a hard but really good realization.
Next, Shawna admits she always feels behind everyone else, that she should be doing more for the Lord as she looks around at what others are doing. Then, Perry believed a lie for a long time, and it was destroying him. It was this, “If I don’t feel forgiven, then I’m not forgiven.” Finally, if we’re committed to walking with someone who’s really hurting, it can be hard to say “no,” when they call. It’s a conversation about the line between being a helper and thinking we need to be the messiah.
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!
