God astonishingly invites us to partner with him to repair the world. And all we need to do to get in on this is to say one simple, profound word, “yes.” Then, Shawna’s been in a ton of bible studies, she’s wept in times of worship, she’s walked where Jesus walked in Israel, but none of these has caused Shawna to grow in her relationship with Jesus most. Next, Shawna was on Facebook yesterday and her heart broke as she read the post of a friend: “My husband doesn’t want me anymore.”
Then, sin takes us where we never thought we’d go. It’s deceitful. And sin is never more deceitful than when it tells us—“Your salvation, your forgiveness, your problems are all on you. Jesus isn’t enough. You gotta figure it out.” Next, the only way we really get to know God intimately is through wrestling. Perry shares the hard wrestling he’s been doing this year. Finally, there’s only one place to find joy. It’s simple really. But so easy to miss! 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!
