Maybe in those honest, middle-of-the-night moments you realize you’re deeply wounded, empty, broken. We all are. We’re all broken and we all need the gospel. We’re talking healing for our woundedness with our good buddies David Doerner and Cody Mahaffy of Frontline Church. First Cody felt from a very young age that it was on all him to fix his life and it terrified him.
Then, how we self-medicate to heal our wounds when only one thing is needed: Surrendering to Jesus. Next, bringing our mess into the light. Then, Perry shares his wound of shame that started with Perry and porn and what he thought his mom thought of him because of the porn. Then, the healing conversation that Perry had with his mom many years after that wounding experience and finally, years after that, how he was able to share that healing with his mom in the last year of her life.
Next, it’s so painful to bring our pain into the light. Finally, when Shawna was in her early 20’s, she had a plan to take her own life because she believed those around her would be better off without her. It’s a conversation about how Jesus turns our wounds into a way to heal the wounded. Finally, how God sends his powerful word to heal us!
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!
