First, Perry shares how his wounds of shame have been a good friend on his journey. Then, on Monday Shawna wrote in her journal, God, help! Why aren’t you doing something about all this pain? Please come! Louis Lapides, a young Jewish man in New York City was challenged by a street preacher to consider Jesus as Israel’s Messiah. So he started reading the Hebrew scriptures. When he came to Isaiah 53, it seemed a perfect match to Jesus. He concluded that Christians had changed that scripture in their bible. That’s when he asked his mom for a Jewish bible.
Then, the bible gives us supernatural wisdom to navigate life skillfully. Last, the wounds of our nation run deep: racism, violence, slandering politicians, addiction, the alt right, the radical left. And the only way our land can be healed is if we, God’s people, humble ourselves, pray, seek his face, and turn from our wicked ways. Randy and Marcia Heckman of Grand Awakening join the team to point us to a powerful prayer gathering coming to Kalkaska on Friday, July 22nd that will give us a space to pray, to seek, to turn, that our land might be healed.
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!
